    Hi I bought a kore 2 boxed with all manuals and CD and reg number etc

    Tried it but It doesn't fit my work flow

    So I put it up for sale, got a enquiry about it then

    Got this reply
    Hi,

    Sorry, but much as I’d love to get my hands on Kore again, I emailed NI to check and got this back...

    “Thank you for reaching out to Native Instruments.

    Please note that you are inquiring about a legacy product which has been discontinued years ago. This product was never tested on any current operating system and we cannot recommend to use it in a contemporary setup.
    Additionally the software is not compatible with our actual activation tool Native Access. As we shut down the old Service Center end of may, there would be no possibility to get this software activated.

    Long story short answer: no, you can't use that software. We hope you can understand hat.

    Best regards,
    Judith @ NI”

    So I guess it’s pretty much useless now, which is a real shame.

    Thanks anyway

    So NI are telling people u cannot use it

    WTF it runs OK on Windows 10

    They cost me a sale

    What because they don't sale it no more then its no good?

    That's it I'm done with NI

    The hardware my be fine and work with Win 10, but if you can’t register the software then it is useless... and yes, service center is gone. all they did was state fact, I applaud the potential buyer for doing their homework...regardless of how you feel about it.

    Activating Kore 2 is still possible through Native Access, though. Unsure why support states it like that.

    That’s what I thought too. Kore is NOT on the legacy list, so activation should be possible via NA.

    Sorry about the mix-up here.

    Kore 2 can be activated via NA if you are using certain OS including Win10. If you find a new buyer, make sure they use a compatible system tho (Win 7 or higher / Mac OS 10.9). I'm being told it doesn't even install on Mac after 10.9

    We'll make sure this doesn't happen again :eek:

    Matt @ NI Kore 2 will install up to Mojave by disabling SIP through the terminal on macOS, and changing min/maxversion in the installer (there's a tool for that). SIP can be reenabled after running the installer.

    Definitely not a casual procedure but can be done and Kore 2 will work. However due to lack of notarization it won't work on Catalina.

    Umm just google it, I don't remember how it was called :)

    It might be all that's needed is a text editor, but I'm unsure. You can also search through this subforum seeing how people made Kore work on various macOS versions...

    I did, but couldn’t find it. Don’t worry, I’ll work it out.

    Cheers
