MIXMEISTER STUDIO 7.4.4 FINALLY WORKS WITH MAC SNOW LEOPARD

Hi guys

after complaining for the past 6 months, I decided to give it a last try today and SURPRISE, it works !.

Procedure is given by Mixmeister Customer Support (thanks Adam) . I will copy below, but in a summary :
- unisntall the program using dedicated app to remove all links to libray (i use appzapper)
- repair library preferences
- clean all caches
- reboot
- ask for a new link, downlaod the version and reinstall.

For me it worked this time.

below the entire exact procedure :
1. Remove the MixMeister software. I recommend using a 3rd party uninstall utility. If you do not have one, try one of these for free.

· For Mac OS, you can go to http://www.freemacsoft.net/AppCleaner/

2. Run some basic system maintenance to provide a cleaner slate for the software installation.

· For Mac OS
a. Repair Disk Permissions
§ Finder > Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility - select your volume on the left, then click Repair Permissions button below

b. Reset PRAM
i. Shut down the computer.
ii. Locate the following keys on the keyboard:
iii. Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
iv. Turn on the computer.
v. Press and hold the Command – Option – P - R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
vi. Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
vii. Release the keys.

3. Reinstall MixMeister Software

*NOTE - If you need new a new download link, let me know. I can provide one to you.

Also, It may be necessary to delete and rebuild the MixMeister database to resolve issues such as:

· Files not importing to Library / Not populating in Library
· Crashing of program upon launch or upon quit without any errors or indications of problem
· General problems with Library that is not resolved by simply Cleaning Library or manually deleting all contents of library and re-importing.

Delete and Rebuild the MixMeister Database

1. The MixMeister Database file is located here: Macintosh HD -> User -> Library -> Application Support -> MixMeister Technology -> MixMeister Engine 7 -> "catalog.mdb"
2. Delete this file and relaunch the software to rebuild this database file.
3. It may also be necessary to uninstall MixMeister, delete the entire "MixMeister Technology" Folder in the location listed above, restart the Mac and then reinstall the MixMeister software

Locate and delete Preference Files

o Go to the following location and delete any .PLIST files that says “mixmeister”. Then reboot, and launch MixMeister again.
