Thanks for updating FM8 for M1 compatibility/

Now could you please add an option to double the size of it? I can barely see it on my M1 Macbook Pro.

    Scalable GUI is a high-requested feature, but most likely won't be implemented on aging products like FM8. At least not anytime soon, sorry!

    I wonder if it is possible to replace the graphics with higher res versions?

    You still sell this "aging product" for € 149.- in 2023, calling it a "contemporary classic". Clearly not "contemporary" enough though, when displays and resolutions are so big and high, that I actually can't see some parts of the interface on my 33" 4k monitor, without bringing out my reading glasses.

    To be honest, this answer ("highly requested" but "won't be implemented" because "aging") makes me somehow regret that I bought this software.

    Maybe you should change the text on the FM8 website to "Not so contemporary classic, not going to get highly-requested updates because it's to old but you can still throw you money at us!"

    Agreed with sofastar. Still selling a product that is too old to be seen properly on next gen hardware compared to when this was released is like selling a phone without a charger. Please update this to where we can change the image scale. This is a great synth and it would be great to be able to see what we're doing.
