Question Rebirth for Mac 10.6. WANTED, PLEASE!!!!

Rebirth is a essential program of Propellerheads, so I really CAN´T understand, why you don´t progress it for new systems to work with it!!!
Do you have any plans into this direction???
PLEASE! Thank you!

ReBirth is currently being released as a mobile app.

The classic ReBirth has its own page, a "museum" where the last version can be downloaded for free.

I highly doubt that they will make an updated version for Mac or PC, considering how long it has been discontinued.

Is there no way for you to have your Mac run the program? In Windows, there are ways to run older programs if they are not compatible with the current Windows version.

Unfortunately it is *so* old that it was written for a completely different type of CPU before Macs started using Intel processors. There used to be an emulator included in OS X to run those old programs, but in the last couple of versions they've removed it, probably because not many people were using it and it was just wasting resources for most people.

There might still be a way to get it to run using that emulator or another (or even using Wine or Crossover or something to run the windows version), but honestly I think that the iOS version or one of the sampled or emulated Reason Refills are better ways to go at this point.

Edit: Actually, if the OP is on 10.6, Rosetta should still be easily available to run the old Mac version.

Why don't you get Rack Extension ABL2?

It won't work, ReBirth was dropped before OSX and Rosetta does not support applications built for OS9.

ReBirth development was dropped in 1999 (13 years ago) and it was officially discontinued in 2005. They don't seem to have any plans to rerelease it, but if I am wrong, we will only know when it is finally ready for release. I also suppose they wouldn't rerelease it as it was before but they would rather make 3 separate REs. But I wouldn't hope my hopes high...

Well, they have never removed anything from the rack. I don't think they're about to start.

It's really not right to have useless stuff inside program, mac users can't use ReBirth!

Same with audio & vst support, ok vst became RE's! Never say never!

But it's really another thing Bonez, it's useless to all 64 bit win people who don't want to use Reason 32 bit version, for all Mac users, it's simply appendix!

I am not saying the opposite. As far as I am concerned they can just dump it. And I am not saying what they will never do, I am saying what they have never done so far.
