Every year the same game. It's just annoying...
If it weren't so sad, you could laugh about it: Apple releases a new operating system after numerous beta versions were previously in circulation.
Many developers already had new - and compatible - versions of their software on the day of the release. For Native Instruments, however, macOS Ventura apparently came as a surprise and apparently the software is so "specialized" that it is too much to expect it to run or updates to quickly restore compatibility.
Every year the same game. And every year you wonder if learning resistance or just plain ignorance is the reason. But that's not the only problem...
For example, a clean uninstallation of plugins with Native Access is still not possible under macOS. Why ever. Maybe Native Instruments assumes that once installed plugins will be kept forever.
Still some Instruments do not offer a reasonable preset management or really practical sounds such as Massive-X.
Still no one at Native Instruments cares about simplifying the migration from legacy plugins to new plugins - plugins are simply renamed and old presets are simply "forgotten". It is not even comprehensible why a version number has to be poured into a plugin name when the instrument has actually primarily undergone a facelift... But the main thing is that the users have a hard time.
I am so annoyed by this that I have decided - after many years of paying for updates and upgrades - not to pay a single cent to Native Instruments anymore. Anyway, the real value has always been small - even if the quantity of plugins and the size of installations has increased steadily. Because all that is of no use if you can't open old projects anymore, have to dig up old presets somewhere and have to replace Battery 3 with Battery 4, for example, which is time-consuming. Design-fails and decisions of the product management, which the customer pays with time and broken projects.
But: I still have a reasonably current Komplete and I would like to have compatibility with macOS Ventura again. That shouldn't be so hard, if the development was halfway reasonable.
Therefore my request: See to it that the compatibility is restored promptly. I would also be grateful for a Native Access update that includes an "uninstall" option.
