Yippee - at last I have purchased, downloaded and installed Dorico Pro 4 on my main Windows PC. I’ve spent much of today climbing the “learning” curve as a long-time Finale user.
So I thought I’d also download and install on my late 2021 MacBook Pro 16" (with M1 processor) - but was surprised to be told I needed to install Rosetta. I thought Dorico Pro 4 was available as a native Apple Silicon system - why do I need Rosetta?
Thanks Romanos - this is a MacBook that I have only used lightly since buying it, and have not yet knowingly run any software that requires Rosetta: I am still using my 2012 Intel MacBook Pro for most of my non-Windows work.
All I know, is that when I entered my download serial number, and got the Dorico 4 installer, when I clicked to run it, I was told I would need to “Install Rosetta” in order to proceed! I am doing my best to keep my new Mac as “clean” as possible, and don’t want anything installed that isn’t 100% native M1 software!
When I got my M1 earlier this year, I was feeling the same - keep it clean and don’t install Rosetta. But, when one piece of software was not ready yet and I needed to use it I “buckled” and installed it with Rosetta. Truthfully, I couldn’t tell the difference. It is pretty unbelievable - not anything like Rosetta from the Intel days. Rosetta 2 is an amazing feat of software and hardware. I have learned to not give it a second thought.
Where is this “link” found, Brian? If it’s the name of a folder that was created by downloading something via Steinberg Download Assistant it would be interesting to know which download that was. (10 Duke is the name of the company that builds the technology on which Steinberg Licensing is built.)
