I just wiped my Mac and started to reinstate software. Ableton Live and Propellerheads Reason/Record were fine but Cubase would not recognise the dongle. Same problem with my soft synths Korg M1 and Wavestation (I used to have these synths) and Absynthe. I decided to just use these on the PC and finsh earlier projects on the PC rather than port them over. I´m aware I allow too many distractions to get in the way of finishing projects. Maybe another unfinished project may come to the rescue here. I had planned to explore and documjent a host of free music applications here maybe I could add some free apps to my mac to replace the synths that will not load. I then need to start finishing muic projects and avoid the clutter an distraction.
