@Ben-Healy Sound Forge for Mac is a very old version that doesn't run on modern Mac systems. Development for Mac was stopped.

Welcome to the Magix user to user forums.

Please read this pinned post which, although I suspect it is NOT what you want to hear, explains why you cannot use Sound Forge for MAC under any recent version of MAC OS, sorry. And yes, if you did want to use the MAC version, it would be a new purchase.

Hi, my friend is a MAC & iphone user & he is trying to register at Magix & Producer BAse but cannot do so unfortunately. Are the sites restricted to PC users only or can Mac users register to upload music at Producer Base. He is not a user of any Magix music software. I have also posted a similar question elsewhere today so I apologise if I'm asking the same thing twice. PLUS my emails to Magix keep bouncing back for some wierd reason. I've not had problems emailing before so any advice would be helpful. Thanks, Clive-aka-Spyda.

@Spyda-Music-Productions It depends on what e-mail address you are using. should work fine.

I don't know if Magix blocks certain browsers. If you use Safari, it could be that they will assume you are a macOS user and will block you. Maybe use a different browser like Firefox?
