Just purchased SpectraLayers 8 Pro upgrade upon advice (From Now Available post)
Is there any change in System Requirements for Pro 8 from Version 7? There was an issue at the beginning with Pro 7 that some functions didn’t work on Macs that couldn’t process AVX instructions. Robin fixed that. I want to make sure this is still the case and that there are no surprises after purchase. It would be so much easier if Steinberg allowed us to demo.
Two specific questions actually:
- Does it, like Cubase 11, require Metal Graphics?
- Does it still work without AVX?
Are there any other new changes that could affect it’s compatibility with older systems? (Running Mohave 10.14.6)
If your mac officially support macOS Mojave, you’ll be good in term of compatibility.
It doesn’t require Metal graphics, still the same OpenGL 3.3 requirements.
You should be good without AVX support as well.
Unfortunately, very disappointed to report instant crashes in numerous processes (SpectraLayers Pro 7 is fine for it’s similar processes:
There isn’t even a crash report. Just Poof, it’s gone.
Something has changed between v7 and 8.
Is there any reason Steinberg won’t provide demos on release dates? I sure hope this can be solved because I did my best to avoid this happening.
Mac Pro 2008. Mohave 10.14.6.
