    Oh, and a small and obscure company called Avid.

    From Avid's webpage - "Apple has recently announced its next operating system Mac OS 10.12 (Sierra). Avid has not completed qualification of the new Mac OS 10.12 for all products ( except Sibelius 8.4.2 which has been approved ) and strongly recommends customers do NOT upgrade to this OS version until qualification for our other products is complete. There are open bugs and known issues with current shipping versions of some of our products that will need to be addressed prior to qualification. Please find the qualification status for each of these products below."

    Yep. That's only if I really need to also. I now download them, without installing, so I have access when it''s time.

    I have 3 Macs, and my MacBook Pro I always keep up-to-date on the OS, which allows me to have access to older OS's when I want to update my other two Macs to a version other than the current OS. Wasn't intentional but I discovered recently how perfectly this works out when I upgraded my cheese grater to Yosemite 4 months ago.

    I’m starting to get a bit annoyed about the lack of support, or even beta drivers for customers to try (at their own risk).

    Yes, it’s only been two weeks since the official macOS Sierra release, but the beta was released on June 13, 2016. The purpose of the beta from Apple is for developers to make necessary changes ahead of the official release. Universal Audio has had 115 days since the macOS Sierra beta was released.

    For the “you’re stupid if you upgrade” crew, please note that many of us do more than just audio production on our Macs, and sometimes have no choice about upgrades. And, as others have mentioned, if you buy a new Mac, you get the latest OS, and older OS versions typically will not install even if you have a USB flash drive with an installer (which isn’t that easy to obtain).

    115 days is enough. “Universal Audio will be releasing a software update in November 2016 which will be the first step toward full Sierra compatibility” and “We plan to offer full macOS Sierra compatibility in a UAD software update in early 2017” is not good enough.

    Looking at the last 4 OS X releases. UA has taken 3 to 4 months to approve every major OS update. They take their time and release a solid stable driver when they are sure it's ready! Avid takes their time as well, often taking 6 to 9 months!

    3 to 4 months after the public release means they be done just in time for the next OS beta. If this happens again with macOS 10.13, my Apollo will almost certainly be the last UAD product I buy.

    UA has just given an update :

    "Universal Audio will be releasing a software update in November 2016 which will be the first step toward full Sierra compatibility. This UAD software update will allow UAD-2 and Apollo products to operate under macOS Sierra, however full testing and qualification for Sierra will come later. We plan to offer full macOS Sierra compatibility in a UAD software update in early 2017."

    I think that folks negatively comparing UAD to other interface manufacturers in this context need to understand the additional complexity of UAD powered plug-ins and their different setups and configurations. They simply aren't the same.

    I prefer them to take their time and get it right, personally.

    UAD is one of the few software company with whom I suffer very little software issues with, and I'm sure it's down to their approach. I also generally don't update UAD software unless it directly benefits me.

    Also, I'm not sure that anyone is saying "you're stupid if you upgrade", it's just a choice. In the same way that some can't afford to use the old OS's, some of use can't afford to upgrade based on the fact that we just need our systems to work for what we use them for. No surprises.
