1. Hi everyone,

    Apple just released Logic Pro 10.5 for MacOS 10.15. We found out that Massive X, Crush Pack, Mod Pack, Replika, and Replika XT will crash.

    Our teams are currently working on a fix, and we hope to have this out to you as soon as we can!

    Best wishes, 
    The NI Team

    Have a look through these forums & you'll see there are quite a few people wondering the same thing. You need to wait for NI to release the Universal Binary version of this software.

    That's precisely what I was hoping for, but the answer is: Nope. The problem, as far as I can tell, is the ScratchAmp driver. That is - neither FS not Traktor Studio software can see the ScratchAmp, and neither when running it ("it" meaning my brand new 17" MacBook Pro) under Mac nor under Windows. The software alone seems to work (ie. it boots, I didn't actually go any further than that yet) but the FireWire icon remains red all the time.

    In fact, I wonder if it runs on a dual core processor PC...

    I'm not a Mac expert but this interests me.

    Has anyone tried running the non-universal binary version under Rosetta.

    Performance might suffer but I'm wondering if it would work.

    As for the driver issue, I thought the Mac supports the Scratchamp right in the OS?

    Mac sure does. And it does see the ScratchAmp all right. It's the Traktor & FS software that don't.

    And as for the software, since there only is a non-universal version available so far, it does have to run under Rosetta, and it does so too. It's just that it's ScratchAmp-blind, so to speak...

    Ahhhh, I see so the Scratchamp is detected. The application doesn't see the device.

    That sucks that Intel based Mac users can't use FS right now.

    But what I'm wondering if it's an application problem and/or driver problem.

    There has to be a workaround other than begging for an update/fix.

    This is just to say I was wrong - it appears that it is possible to run FS2 / TDJS2 / TDJS3 on XP in Bootcamp after all. Can't yet say how reliable it is - but it does work all right.

    Yes it is, I currently use FS2 and the Scratch Amp in Windows on my MacBook Pro. Obviously you need to have the Windows disk that came with the scratch amp, install all the software first and then the drivers for the scratch amp. After that when you connect it, Windows will pick it up. I've been using it like this for about 4 months and my sets on it are usually between 3-5 hours at a time.

    The update comes in about 3-6 months (!)
    -> I write to the Stanton Final Scratch support

    I got a MacBook (with 2 Ghz Duo) so I have to run with Boot Camp/XP Pro & Final Scratch 2.
    It's working, but I can't say that it works perfect.
    I got crackles (every few minutes). I turn the wireless lan and bluetooth of but the crackles hold on.
    I make 2 shows now with it (for about 3 hours) and I have at both times a drop out for about 3-5 seconds -> The fire wire symbol in traktor turn red. Except that, it works.
    I don't know if this are beginning Problems. ( before I got the MacBook I work with an PC Laptop. At the beginning with the PC Laptop I got also problems, but later it runs perfectly...)

    -> The installation of Boot Camp is very easy. By the way you don't have to search for the drivers, there in the Boot Camp package...

    Here is the e mail from the Final Scratch 2 support with Boot Camp installation help:


    Unfortunately we are still looking at 3-6 months for a fully compatible
    version to be running on the native osx. We do however; have a
    temporary solution for you if you see below:


    Macintosh releases Boot Camp!

    Which means that FS 2.0 is now compatible with the Mac Book Pro’s! You
    will still need to load up Windows as the native OS FS will currently
    run on, however you can now use FS with your new Mac Book Pro’s. We are
    also currently working on a version running natively on Macintosh OS as

    As elegant as it gets
    Boot Camp lets you install Windows XP without moving your Mac data,
    though you will need to bring your own copy to the table, as Apple
    Computer does not sell or support Microsoft Windows.(1) Boot Camp will
    burn a CD of all the required drivers for Windows so you don't have to
    scrounge around the Internet looking for them.

    Optional alt. At startup, hold down the option key (alt) to choose
    between Mac OS X and Windows.
    Run XP natively
    Once you’ve completed Boot Camp, simply hold down the option key at
    startup to choose between Mac OS X and Windows. (That’s the “alt” key
    for you longtime Windows users.) After starting up, your Mac runs
    Windows completely natively. Simply restart to come back to Mac.
    What you’ll need
    § Mac OS X Tiger v10.4.6 (check Software Update)
    § The latest Firmware update (check Support Downloads)
    § 10GB free hard disk space
    § An Intel-based Mac
    § A blank recordable CD
    § A printer for the instructions (You’ll want to print them before
    installing Windows, really.)
    § A bona fide installation disc for Microsoft Windows XP, Service
    Pack 2, Home or Professional (No multi-disc, upgrade or Media Center
