It's been about a year in the making, but today I'm happy to announce version 1.0 of Patch Base for Mac, available now. This first release includes every editor that is available on the iPad version, so over 50 synths across 10 manufacturers are supported. All of the features from the iPad version are here on the Mac, as well as some new features that take advantage of the multi-windowed environment on macOS. To give you a feel for this new version, I made an intro video for you:
Patch Base for Mac is being distributed directly from Coffeeshopped, so unlike the iOS version you can directly download the app from the Patch Base home page on our website.
Compatibility: Patch Base for Mac 1.0 is compatible with macOS 10.13 and up. I hope to add support for 10.11 and 10.12 soon, but there are still some bugs to fix on those older platforms, so stay tuned.
iCloud: Just like the iPad version, Patch Base for Mac can integrate with your iCloud account, to automatically sync all of your patch data in the cloud. And if you use the iPad version, all of your patches and banks that are already synced to iCloud will be immediately available on your Mac.
Purchase: Download Patch Base for free with limited functionality, for testing and exploring. The purchase model on Mac is the same as the iPad: individual editors are available as one-time purchases ($39.99 USD, and similar prices depending on your location). Or, All Access is available as a monthly ($7.99) or annual ($79.99) subscription, with a 7-day free trial included.
