Mixmeister from MAC to PC (at no extra charge) due to incompatibility with OS Catalina

Hello. So, I've been using Studio 7.7 on MAC OS High Sierra, (I believe). It's REALLY buggy, of course. And I DEF cannot upgrade to MAC OS Catalina for fear of losing Mixmeister altogether. I have read the following disclaimer from Mixmeister.....

"...please note that Mixmeister will not work on macOS Catalina. If you wish to continue using this software/app, please continue to do so on macOS Mojave. Your licence will also work at no extra cost on Windows and our software will work with all popular Virtual Machine software such as Parallels or VMware."

Okay..GREAT. Lol

Now can someone walk me through this? I have an awesome Dell laptop. So I'm ready. But only "Serial number", I THINK it means....is my activation code???? (I dunno) So I tried it anyway and went to the mixmeister site, I guess I'm "upgrading"?? (I dunno) So, I tried entering my activation code (at checkout) into the "promo code" field.... Again, have no clue what I'm doing. Of course that doesn't work. So although the notice from mixmeister tells me WHAT to do, is there anyone that can tell me HOW (step by step) to do this? I feel so dumb....hahaha! Also, what is "Parallels" and "VMware". Yeah...maybe I am dumb. LOL Anyway...thanks in advance. :)

  • Parralels and VM Mare allow Windows to be loaded onto a MAC and therefore run the Windows version of Mixmeister on a MAC.. Not the best way to do it but I'll do anything as I use this for my radio show mixes. I'll also be interested to know how you get the copy of Windows Mixmeister and just like you which code will it use as all I got was a digital rights manager code ??

    So I bought Mixmeister Studio for Mac and due to the incompatibility with Catalina just installed the Windows 7.7 version on a Windows 10 VM in Parallels. The license was automatically loaded from the iLok software so I had no issues using my Mac license on a windows version.

    BTW - I had forgotten how much smoother Mixmeister runs on Windows than Mac - no defects, crashes, graphic interface oddities and artifacts. It runs very smooth and with Coherence mode in Parallels you forget you are working on a VM
