In order to answer some questions and alleviate some confusion, Stanton DJ has issued the following statement that better explains the current situation with their software:
"Since the announcement of our FinalScratch OPEN strategy, the Stanton Group has had a number of inquiries regarding software Intel-based Mac compatibility solutions for existing FinalScratch 2 users. We are doing everything we can to help by working with FinalScratch OPEN software partners for development of new solutions and hold a great deal of respect and appreciation for our user base, but need to reiterate that this is strictly a software-based issue.
The ScratchAmp is and always has been fully compatible with all Mac technology, but an Intel-compatible update for FS2 users on the software side was never developed, and all of Stanton's requests for this software update have been denied by the developer. Currently, we do not develop software in-house, we are hardware experts, so the solution we developed was to open up our hardware code to all software houses to offer our customers as many options as possible rather than choosing for them by becoming exclusive with a new partner.
We would also like to stress the fact that we are open to offering compatibility to ALL developers, including N.I., and any others who may choose to stand behind the ScratchAmp and implement our code in their programs, present and future. We invite you to encourage your software company to make their developments ScratchAmp compatible!
For any hardware related issues, we are always available for questions and support at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the helpline at +1 954.316.1500 (option 4) M-F from 9am-6pm EST. At this time, for software solutions, including Intel-Mac compatibility questions, please contact Native Instruments."
