Hi Marty - I'd mentioned that with a standalone Instrument [player] you'd have to set your audio interface in its Preferences -- you may also have to set the standalone's MIDI Preferences to recognize and use your preferred MIDI keyboard [the Arturia, in this case]. As far as trying the Analog Lab instruments [standalone & plug-ins] on your older Mac, I'd first check out the amount of available hard disk space on the main [startup] internal drive -- as long as you can install everything and still have 10%-20% of the drive space free [empty] that should be ok. If the computer has at least 8GB RAM [16GB preferred] and an i5 or i7 CPU* it should be ok. * Ideally a 4-core i5 or [better] i7, but an i3 or even an older Core Duo might be able to handle it if the rest of the spec [RAM, available HD space, and HD speed [≥7200rpm or SSD]] is up to snuff.Reply
