Just to clarify some important points here
First of all I'm not part of support or S.A team, I'm just a moderator trying to help on the forums.
Second point being that if you read my previous post, I NEVER SAID that S.A was abandoning ANA 1.5.
I even wrote that it was still maintained for now, but as a fact it's not a product which is on sale by S.A anymore ( but it's something different than support & maintenance ). Now as such product ( discontinued for sale ) I can imagine that S.A could decide not to maintain it across OS & DAWs new releases in the future, but that's only a "logical" assumption from me.
So far, I just know that S.A is aware of the problem, I have no clue about the progress on that issue. Should you need more information, you can open a support ticket
Expecting that this is clarifying my previous post
@chris_agnelli Would be nice to have an update about this one, thanks.
