You are confusing the standalone Fizmo editor and the full-blown SoundDiver public beta 2. The standalone editor does not require any key and runs in OS 9 (possibly in OS 8 and previous) or Windows only. It will not run on an Intel Mac unless you run Windows on that Intel Mac and it contains the Fizmo module only. It can be downloaded from the Fiz Yahoo! group.KalinsFarm wrote:Yes. I loaded it on my Intel Mac and it ask me to insert a USB key. I can get a key (with Logic 7) off ebay. I was unclear as to what registration tricks I had to perform with Apple and the key to use it.
Is the 'used' key tied to the registration number of it's original product (like Logic)?
Will any key work with the standalone editor?
The public beta will run in OS X and on Intel Macs (via PPC emulation, aka Rosetta), but it requires an XSKey. The public beta is what is still available to download from Apple. This version contains the Fizmo module, but also other modules and adaptations which can be used to edit many other synths.
Any XSkey will work, and you don't need to register it or anything. The SD public beta 2 only checks to see that a key is there when it runs.
