EQ7 for Mac – Update
As we announced last month, our first step in the release of the Mac program would be a “migration” kit for our existing users, and we had hoped to have that ready by now. It’s looking like mid-March now, and we’re very sorry for the delay. We are putting all our efforts into it! Thanks for your patience with us. If you didn’t read all the details of our original post on January 3, you can read more here.
