"When opening projects that contain EXS instruments that can’t be found, Sampler now shows the names of the missing instruments."

Yes!!

Note - 10.6 has Catalina as a minimum requirement.

"The “Bypass All Effects Plug-ins” command on channel strips now acts as a toggle."

10.4 to 10.5 big update, 10.5 to 10.6 a big update for performances and bugs
When will see new instruments (like the Collection Keyboards on GarageBand for iOS)”Wind Studio” instruments (like strings studio) and new loops? Update Delay designer design like Space designer, All new pitch correction, new synths(also design for the older) and what about new splash screen LOL

EDIT: I see a new semi splash screen LOL
EDIT 2: GarageBand is also updated and bring new instruments and loops sorry Apple! (but why only Big Sur)?

Very disappointed it no longer supports Mojave. So now I’m really out of luck as my MP doesn’t do Catalina.

Those of us running on Classic Mac Pro towers only need to wait for the update fashion to loop around, like skinny ties, back to Intel chips, or at least to "revolutionary" PowerPC chips :mrgreen:

Oh, and yes you CAN shoehorn Catalina into a Classic Mac Pro. But this hard sell update pressure is getting annoying.

I had to log out and then log back in to the App Store before 10.6 showed up in my account.
Strange, but it's downloading now - I've already backed up 10.5.1.

S1 5, Reaper, and Cubase 11, DP - all support Mojave. I get that my Mac is 8 years old, but this does seem like Apple is pushing hardware upgrades. Guess that is why it’s 10.6 and not 10.5.5

Seriously, Catalina or Big Sur only for 10.6.0? Man that sucks.

Sure, and probably none of them support Apple Silicon yet. This transition is one of the reasons Apple have been cleaning up MacOS from the old, legacy and 32-bit stuff, and this is why they require Catalina at a minimum.

Bug Sur runs on all machines that currently run Catalina AFAIK, so I'm not sure why you think this is pushing hardware upgrades? It's more like it's *supporting* the new machines, which you'd expect of Apple software. And the new Logic still runs on Catalina, no hardware upgrade required... (except for those of us on very old machines for now...)

Seriously, I was not intending to update my OS.
I don't want to run Big Sur, is there a link to update to Catalina instead?

haven't played with it much yet (the orange bar highlighting the current track is a nice touch). opens fast, feels fluid (am on catalina). the new icon is SO much better (but i will continue to use a custom app icon, as i've done since forever). and 3rd-party plugins have stopped opening on the very bottom right of the screen (thank u apple).

final cut looks good, also seems... smoother. but i think that happens with every update :mrgreen:

you mean, is safari snappier

and yes, installing the final cut & logic updates does make safari snappier™ (also my boot time was cut in half, and 100bpm now plays at 110bpm, etc). updating has it's rewards...

Nice catch! It's a new feature in 10.6 indeed. Interestingly it's listed only as a bug fix: "Entering a chord in the Piano Roll chord editor for the first time now longer always enter a “Cno3” chord." .... and even more interestingly, it always enters a Cno3 chord here. :?
