1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    We received a Cease and Desist letter letter from Moog, because of misuse of their trademarks.

    I will reach out to the affected users next week, but for now I just want to let everyone know not to use any Moog trademarks, or we'll have to delete your uploads.

    If in doubt, ask me, or simply don't do it :)

    Rename Moog to Moon like Roland to Boland in U/L years ago.

    I knew this would happen. They are really fussy with such things even with free, non-comercial stuff where it's totally clear that it isn't really made by moog themself. I don't say that i can't understand them but i dunno if they feel better to see poop instruments in the ul instead.

    I come from Yamaha MSX (1985) and Atari (1989-2002). Knowing the pixelized fonts also but not the moof dogcowdog.
    Which business is older? National or Native?

    Mostly Mac all the time. But also Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Apple II c, MSX, C64, then Mac, some ATARI, then a PC for work purposes @ Steinberg (short time), then back to Mac. So almost everything I could put a hand onto.

    Just to make it clear, it's not illegal to make clones of their synths but don't use the name or logo of the company or synths. Just look at the description of monark ("MONARK delivers the sound of the king of analog monosynths. Capturing every nuance in spectacular detail, this is the holy grail of analog modeling."), moog or the minimoog isn't mentioned in any way even if anyone knows what it claims to be. So just do it that way and everything is fine.

    I had an upload called Minimojo in a type face looking like the Big M and that was not ok by their lawyer. So just changing name slightly might not be enough. It was the font that made it crossing the line.
