*Additional information on the Mac OS X Mountain Lion compatibility

With few exceptions, the tests for the above listed products showed no other issues than mentioned in the comments. Articles on both the Gatekeeper and the sample rate selection issue can be accessed by clicking on the links.

Nuendo Live shows a slightly different behaviour at the moment. It is not possible to change the sample rate from within the application at all. A workaround is described in this article.
