macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility

Given the upcoming release of macOS 10.15 Catalina, we’ve been performing in-house testing to establish the compatibility of our existing software with this macOS update.

Testing so far has revealed that changes introduced in macOS 10.15 may affect the compatibility of ROLI software. We recommend that you wait to update to macOS 10.15 Catalina until we’ve ensured compatibility, and given the all-clear that you’re safe to update.

We’ll let you know once we’ve ensured that all existing products are no longer affected and that it's safe to update.

We'd like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Hi all,

We're now pleased to announce that all ROLI products are now compatible with macOS Catalina, v10.15.2. Should you encounter any issues when installing any ROLI software or content, please refer to the list below in case any prompts that appear are a routine part of the installation process of macOS Catalina:


  • ROLI Connect - Please ensure you accept requests to access Documents and Finder during the ROLI Connect installation - this is normal and ensures Connect can install ROLI software successfully

  • Cypher2/Strobe2 (Player or Full) - Click “Install” in ROLI Connect to download and run the Cypher2 or Strobe2 installer, and follow the instructions

  • Equator (+ extended libraries) - Click “Install” in ROLI Connect to download and run the Equator installer. Please ensure you accept requests to access Documents during the Equator installation - this is normal and ensures Equator can access all preset locations successfully
  • ROLI Dashboard - Click “Install” in ROLI Connect to download and run the ROLI Dashboard installer, and follow the instructions. Ensure you click “Always allow” when prompted to enter your system password when you run ROLI Dashboard for the first time

  • ROLI Studio Drums/Player - Install and run RSD/RSP from ROLI Connect - no extra permission requests should occur

  • BLOCKS Code - Download and run the BLOCKS Code installer



We are in the process of completing updates to outstanding FXpansion products, and we shall issue an update regarding these products as soon as they are compatible with macOS Catalina.


If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks again for your for your patience and understanding.
