Native Instruments now fully embraces the numerous advantages that Windows XP and Mac OS X have to offer over their predecessors in terms of performance, stability and usability. All future development efforts will be completely focused on Windows XP and Mac OS X to ensure the best possible user experience on these powerful platforms.
In 2003, Native Instruments has dedicated a huge amount of development effort to ensure optimal performance of new and existing products under Windows XP and Mac OS X. All current NI software products are now available for Mac OS X, including support for technologies like AudioUnits, CoreAudio and CoreMIDI, while Windows versions have seen numerous updates for RTAS and Windows XP compatibility in the last months.
Consequently, older versions of Microsoft's and Apple's operating systems will no longer be supported in the future. Mac versions of new products as well as updates for existing products will be made available exclusively for Mac OS X. Upcoming Windows versions will be developed and optimized for performance and compatibility exclusively for Windows XP.
The Native Instruments customer support will of course continue to serve users of older Windows and Mac OS versions.
