MacBook Air, Ableton, Rosetta.

Post by Arpangel »

Just tried to install my free copy of Live Lite, it’s asking for Rosetta, is this OK to install on my MacBook Air?

Yes, as long as it's an M1 machine!

Yes, I think it is, it was bought a couple of months ago, Ableton mentions "silicon" in relation to Rosetta.

That would be an M1 machine then - ‘silicon’ is short for ‘Apple Silicon’, which is their name for this new generation of chips.

Been distracted, I’ll install Rosetta today and see how it goes.
