So I downloaded the latest version of Studio Manager on my iMac running MacOS 10.12.5 and installed it.  I downloaded the latest version of the vVoice Editor (2.2) and installed it.  I can instantiate Studio Manager and the Voice Editor is available to choose during setup.

However, once I choose the VE, I get the message that the component (VE) could not be loaded.

Any help on how to solve this issue would be greatly appreciated.

It appears that the Rack ES Voice Editor v2.2.2 supported Mac OS X 10.3~10.7 only.

There’s no indication that a later OS such as 10.12 is supported.

Owning a legacy product sometimes means that you have to keep a legacy computer, running a legacy OS. For my own situation I have a PC running Windows XP SP3.

Owning a legacy product sometimes means that you have to keep a legacy computer, running a legacy OS.

This is likely of no help to the OP right now, but my way around keeping an actual legacy machine (since hard drives are so big these days) is to create two 60 GB partitions when I either start to use a new mac or when I reformat one.

The bulk of the disk is formatted as Sierra 10.12 and is up to date. (or latest OS at the time)

The first of those two small partitions will be a legacy partition. In my case, right now, I have a Mountain Lion 10.8 partition for a few older things and plugins that I need to keep using.

The second partition is named “Experimental” and is currently empty, but it enables me to install any OS or program, old, current or future (beta versions etc.)

It’s well worth doing for the sake of a small amount of space, and you can easily boot between them using the the Startup Disk system preference, or keyboard shortcut for it during start up.

I make a clone of each partition to another drive for back ups (if they’re not empty) and I’m good for a while like that.
