Nord Modular editor + Macbook Core 2 Duo 2,53gHz + El Capitan working here...

It took me a lot of time to find a solid combination, so i want to share it - maybe it can help someone else.

I tried two different midi interfaces (Midisport 2x2 and ESI MidiMate EX), Windows 7 and Windows XP under Parallels, Wine in different versions: HQ 3.0, Wine 2.01, and the one which comes with Winebottler, which is Wine 1.8.3.

I also tried running the editor w administrator privileges in the different systems, legacy w95/w98/xp compatibility modes, etc... The results were variate, but in all cases inestable under Paallels (rebooting windows, etc)... Wine versions were even worse.

*** BUT ****
Ultimately - and surprisingly - I found a combination that seems to work on Wine (+ ESI Midimate EX, although i suspect it will work too for the Midisport 2x2). This was it:

- Download and install brew, Quark etc. as recommended by the OP.
- Download Winebottler.
- Install in the app folder the Wine version (1.8.3) that came with the Winebottler.
- Apply the patch of the OP on terminal (i don't know if it was necessary but i did it).
- Open Wine 1.8.3 - you will see a cup of wine icon on the task bar.
- Click that icon, it opens the Wine menu, go to Configuration
- Open the tab "Applications"
- Add the Nord Modular Editor v3.03 application, and select it to run in Windows 98 emulation mode. Close the Wine configuration.
- Execute the Nord Modular Editor through Wine: again Wine menu --> File Manager --> find the editor > double click to execute.

Since i did this the editor has been working well without losing the connection while browsing patches, altering them etc, so it looks pretty good (specially compared with the former tries...).

Having a Micromodular AND a Modular G1, i want to create patches on the Micro when i travel, and dump them to the Modular when i am in my studio - hence the old Windows laptop solution was not attractive at all for me... i am happy now that i can use my mac to do all the process.
