Hi,

No, we don't have any plans in the immediate future for a Macintosh version.

I'think you should.

Many people plan/ would like to migrate from PC to MAC. And it will be a "plus" if it's cross plateform

Maybe we will someday, but there's nothing scheduled right now.

Pianissimo for OS X

Postby toddo » Thu Jan 01, 2009 4:03 pm

I just found this software and downloaded the trial version on my wife's pc running xp pro. I love the sound and am interested in buying, but I do all my recording in Cubase on a macbook running Leopard 10.5.5. Please add me to the list of people interested when you decide make it compatible with OS X.

Thanks.

Feh! No Mac OS X compatibility. Too bad...looks like a good product. Ah, well...at least that makes the buying decision easy. "Nope!"

<rant>Now that I'm a Mac user, I find Windows-only software just as frustrating as I found Mac-only software when I used Windows. In that regard, the Mac community seems to be a bit ahead of the curve, as many of the developers on the Mac side have come to recognize the advantages of building cross-platform products. I'm excited about the Windows world's...er, "opportunities for personal growth" in that area.</rant> :mrgreen:

Sounds like AcousticaÔäó Pianissimo won't show up in OS X before I give my buying $$ to someone else, but I wish you folks at AcousticaÔäó success just the same.

OA X plans?

Postby toddo » Wed Aug 26, 2009 8:20 am

Hello again,

I was wondering if after 8 months any further thought had been given to making Pianissimo compatible with OS X? I have now started using Logic and would love to have the use of Pianissimo.

Thank you,
Todd

Hi,

There's been some talk of making a Mac version of Pianissimo, but we don't have any concrete plans at this time. We're focused on creating Mixcraft 5.

For OSX

Hi Greg,

Just wanted to let you know that after a year I still haven't found a better sound than that of Pianissimo. Have switched to Logic 8 and would still love to buy Pianissimo for Mac. Hoping you find time to make a Mac version after Mixcraft 5 comes out.

Best regards,
Todd

I too would like a Mac OS X version. I have been a Pianissimo owner for some time, but have recently converted over to a Mac from Windows. All the viruses I was getting was driving me spare - every 6 months I had to reformat my hard drive. Now, having converted to Mac, I am much happier.

Please, please, please make this available for the Mac.

Colin.

You might try a VST to AU wrapper like this one:

I too would like a Mac OS X version. I was almost buying this piece of software. Have been listening to the demos and all, and now I'm very dissapointed of the fact that I cannot use it. :(

From the wrapper's FAQ:

Will it work with PC VST plug-ins?

No.


I rest my case :roll:

count me as another long time user who would LOVE a Mac version of this VST.

The heavy lifting is already done. The market would increase nicely for you, if you port this excellent instrument.

Hey Guys, I sent an email over two years ago enquiring if there will be a Mac version; still to this day I'm looking for a replacement with no luck. Nothing seems to come close to the richness and warmth of pianissimo. Sadly, you replied it was not in your current plans to release a mac version.

I post this hoping to atleast start a discussion in 2013 amongst the Acoustica team to finally create this amazing vst for the mac; I'm positive that the pro's will outweigh the con's. I understand that you can emulate with WINE etc. but this is not ideal in all circumstances and certainly doesn't give the best results compared to being native.

Please consider this, we're all waiting with bated breath.
