Is Smaart compatible with macOS Catalina (10.15)?
Apple has officially released MacOS 10.15 Catalina, which eliminates support for 32-bit applications. At this time, the current release of Smaart v8 (up to and including v8.3.1) is NOT compatible with Catalina. If you own Smaart v8 and want to install Catalina, you can download the most recent v8 Beta build from the Downloads section within your account at my.rationalacoustics.com and it should run on the new OS. Smaart v8.4 will graduate from "Beta" within the next few weeks and will be tested for compatibility with Catalina prior to its release.
Smaart Di v2.1, released October 4, 2019, is a 64-bit application and will run on macOS Catalina, but is not guaranteed to be 100% compatible until we can fully test it on the official public release of Catalina. If you are running Smaart Di v2, you MUST update to version 2.1 in order for it to run on Catalina (see update instructions above).
We strongly advise against upgrading to macOS Catalina for a few months while audio device manufacturers roll out stable drivers for the new OS. It is critical to ensure that your audio device has compatible drivers, as an incompatible driver may not be recognized by Smaart or may cause Smaart to crash.
NOTE: The following versions of Smaart are no longer in development and will not be updated to support Catalina: Smaart v7, Smaart v7 Di, Smaart I-O Control Application. If you’re running one of these programs, and you plan to update to Catalina, you will need to upgrade to Smaart v8 or Smaart Di v2.
