So sad to watch a good thing die after being a faithful user - from the PC era into the Mac era. Now that they are back to PC, I hold out hope that Mac will at least get an update just keep it working. I've spent more on Sound Forge than any other program in my lifetime.
Oh, sure. I saw that. I'm not on Catalina. I'm running High Sierra and suffering through all sorts of lag and mid-project crashes. I'm just trying to be polite. You don't want to know how I really feel about Sony and Magix luring me into Mac and then leaving me here stranded.
...oh, and on top of it all, I am one of the suckers who bought the Apple 'app' version too. Magix needs to be more definitive with their plans. I can't be the only person who has purchased every version of SF and has watched two of the three become unsupported almost immediately.
Wait, are you insinuating that my ultra souped-up Mac still using High Sierra (so I can use Sound Forge Pro Mac 3) is the reason why Sound Forge isn't working properly on my machine? Not because Sound Forge for Mac Pro 3 has not been updated in god knows how long? Or, are you just trying to get me off the Sound Forge for Mac forum because my query is impossible to answer? I've been here long enough to know you mods want us Mac users to just install Paralells (or similar) and install SF for PC, but unless you're paying for all that, I retain the right to state my gripes. My Sony account, and my Magix account both show how much I've invested in Sound Forge over the past 15 years. I'm pissed off. This is where I go when I'm pissed. Why would I complain to Apple?
This is the forum for Sound Forge MAC not the MAC forums over at Apple.
My interpretation is that your note suggests someone in an Apple forum can help me solve an issue with a failing Magix product that has not been updated in almost 4 years. Now, you are saying the opposite. I appreciate you pointing out the community rules and I will try to track the next crash (the last crash was yesterday, mid-project for a client, hence my frustration). I'll try to take notes after the next crash, but I'll say this... whether using a plugin or not, Sound Forge Mac Pro 3 - when it crashes - it just closes. It happens when I'm asking the program to process something - volume, EQ, paste/mix, etc. After it crashes, it asks if I want to reopen (I forget, but it's three choices: cancel, restart, reopen, whatever), where I usually select reopen, and then most of what I have worked on since the last save is gone (and half the files I'm using are closed). No error numbers, no OS patch, no antivirus. Is it crashing more often? Good question. Basically, I expect a crash or two every time I use the product. Is that an increase? Not sure. And yes, other than instability, it's a fantastic product. I still love SF, otherwise, I wouldn't care so much about the pivot away from MAC.
