Does anyone have any info or update knowledge on if / when Harmor is ever coming to MacOS?

I remember this was in alpha back in about 2014. That's about 5 years ago lol, feels like the project is abandoned but i would love to have harmor on mac!

I’ve been waiting forever for this too. I even bought it at some point to use the alpha in anticipation of an upcoming native Mac release but it never happened. Flstudio has it and it works on Mac, I don’t know why inageline after all this time won’t release it as a seperate native OS X au and vst plugin. Has been disappointing

I don't disagree. I've used Harmor in the past as a VSTi on PC in Ableton Live and I loved it. A few years ago, I switched to MacOS and I've been craving using Harmor again.

I tried the FL Studio 20.6 demo recently on MacOS. While the VSTi version of FL inside of Ableton Live is a nice option, it's just not the same as having Harmor as a separate VST. For starters, I haven't been able to rack the VSTi and automate synth parameters which are exclusive to FL. Setting up MIDI CCs would is also less than desirable.

I see that Image-Line wants to encourage people on Mac to buy the full DAW, but I bet they'd get a lot of business if they sold their VSTs to be cross-platform (VST, AU, etc.) because they are so unique and sound so great.

I know that porting software is no easy task, but I really wish Image-Line would put in the effort to at least offer Harmor as a VST so we could use it easily in our DAW of choice on MacOS.

I'm almost tempted to get FL Studio just so I can access the plugins on Mac as I have a lot of them bought before I moved to Mac but it never really clicked with me as a DAW. About time they got their act together and released the plugins on Mac. tbh even the ones that are already supporting Mac are pretty flaky.

They have updated the ones that run inside fl studio. The standalone plugins are old alpha versions. I don’t want to use fl studio

Just trying the demo on Mac but their procedure for unlocking the plugins doesn't work - they stay in demo mode. The GUI seems very sluggish, looks like a Java app.
