Issues with older computer
My main computer, now over 10 years old, ( already I hear the gasps from the Windows users), is an early retina MBP. I have recently got the notification in Native Access that due to the operating software (Catalina 10.15.7) no longer being supported by Apple, I may have issues with Native access updating. My computer will not run the next version of the operating software (Big Sur).
Does this affect the functioning of the various elements of my Komplete 10 Ultimate ce installation?
The age of the computer is the main reason for not updating to 14.
My issue is further complicated by the fact that I use a Firewire multichannel digital mixer and upgrading my computer makes the mixer unusable due to lack of Firewire support.
For Firewire I am limited to Windows10 and/or Big Sur on Apple. This of course, raises the issue of how long are either of them going to remain supported.
I have a Windows 10 gaming machine to which I could add a firewire card, a large ssd and maybe a bit more ram, and use that as my studio machine.
Are there then issues with having my software (NI Komplete Ultimate 10 ce) on more than one machine?
I have a 2tb ssd in my MacBook. Would it be possible to shift that to the Windows 10 machine? And if so would I need to wipe it and re- download/install?
For the moment things seem to be OK although, after returning from 6 months travel, I found problems at first with my s88 connecting to Komplete Kontrol. Also some issues with midi selection in Komplete drum instruments while setting up V-Drums.
There could well be further issues I have not stumbled on yet.
Just not sure whether this is a Native Access issue or not.
These days I am transitioning more to "stand alone" using MPC Live2 and awaiting delivery of an Akai Force.
More interested in extending the life of what Computer based gear, both hardware and software, I have invested in to date, than in sinking more money into new computers digital mixers etc.
Maxed out M3 MacBook now about $10,000 Aust. Sheesh!
Sorry if this is not the right spot for this post, but it did start from Native Access warning.
One other (maybe) possibility. I have a basically unused Windows Partition on my ssd (250gig) (Bootcamp). Is it possible to install Native access there and direct it to the Apple section of the ssd?
