The latest version of Sound Studio shuts down when I try to save in MP3.

Apple requires new security regulations to keep apps safe in macOS Catalina. We've updated Sound Studio 4 starting with version 4.9.0 with these security regulations, but it is causing Sound Studio to shut down on certain older macOS versions when someone attempts to save in MP3. The macOS versions affected by this problem are:

  • macOS 10.8 Mountain Lion
  • macOS 10.9 Mavericks
  • macOS 10.10 Yosemite
  • macOS 10.11 El Capitan

We want users to be able to use the new version of Sound Studio with MP3-saving included in the app. If you are using any of the macOS versions listed above, we highly recommend updating to a newer version of the macOS—ideally, macOS Mojave and then Catalina when it is released.

If you are not able to update to a newer macOS version, Felt Tip has created an alternate version of Sound Studio 4.9.1 without the security requirements, so that you can continue to use Sound Studio 4, with MP3-saving, on your older macOS. Note that this version is unsupported and cannot be used with macOS Catalina when it is released. You can download Sound Studio version 4.9.1 for macOS 10.8 to 10.11 on the Felt Tip Sound Studio Download Archive
