In researching the Clavia Nord Modular G2. I've run across some complaints about the company not supporting new OS's. Well, I can recommend one work around. It involves virtualization software. You could use Microsoft's free one, or you could use Mojopac on Windows, and Parallels for Mac. Basically using either of these softwares you can run XP forever! If that doesn't thrill you, bear in mind you don't have to commit an entire hard drive to either software. Mojopac will happily run on a thumbdrive, and parallels can run inside of Mac OS. Teaching you to use these software's is beyond the scope of this article. If you have decent computer knowledge it shouldn't be too tough. I've used Mojopac before, and the installation was totally guided, requiring minimal user input. So hopefully this helps anyone out there who has had to upgrade OS's, and found their editing software unsupported.
