Catalina support

+1 vote
I raised the question a few months back and I understood you have a build of the Kyma app suitable for Catalina. I have now successfully transitioned across to Catalina with the exception of Kyma. Would it be possible to have access to the Catalina compatible Kyma version?

Kind regards,

Kyma 7 is compatible with Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina). Follow the link you used to download your original copy of Kyma 7 and you’ll see an option to download the 64-bit version for Mac OS 10.10 - 10.15.

Make sure that all the other software you depend on is also compatible before taking the plunge. For example, check the compatibility of text-editing, spreadsheet, outliners, photo editing, graphics packages and other utilities on which you depend for your daily work.

Thank you for the fast response and clear answer. I have now installed the Kyma 7+ download and it all seems to work great
Note that KyaConnect is one of those "other utilities" that is not compatible with macOS 10.15. There is a Q&A question covering this here:
What is the best practice for adding a personal sound library to the Kyma 7 folder after downloading the 64-bit option? Or is it just that simple? Say I did a clean install of Catalina and then Kyma, could I just drag and drop my personal Kyma sound library from my back-up, which I always have inside the Kyma 7 folder, into the new Kyma 7 folder? Thanks for any thoughts.
I have my Sound library outside of the Kyma 7 folder so it's independent from the kyma installation and not in danger from any update process... and nor is the Kyma 7 folder in any danger from me editing and breaking stuff. I know some people have their library separate and some people have it inside.

I can't think of any reason why you couldn't just copy in your old folder though.
