No support for macOS Catalina

Post by mcandre »

macOS Catalina no longer supports 32-bit applications. Please release a 64-bit edition of Max, so that users can continue running this app on modern computers.

I second this. Max is a critical, go-to app for me. Would love to have it in Catalina.

As sturdy as Max was it isn't going to come alive. Even if Stephen could be persuaded to give up the code to someone willing to port it to 64 bit XLD is the better ripper.

Max works fine on Catalina.
I'm currently busy converting ALAC to MP3 files and Max works like a charm.

Max version is 0.9.2.
