    I use Bootcamp to run Windows 10 on my Mac. Ignoring the fact that Synapse 3 is a major improvement that the Mac version desperately needs, switching between the two seems to have introduced new glitches I've never seen before. After I first used Synapse 3 on Windows, my keyboard stopped automatically connecting to Synapse 2 on macOS, which means I have to unplug it and wait for my Profiles to load every time I reboot or log in.

    After the most recent Mac update, I got the "Synapse will not be supported soon" notification. I can deal with these inconveniences now, but Razer is losing me as a customer if there isn't a Synapse by the time Apple releases the 10.16 update. Not being able to load the keybinds and color layouts I've used for years is a dealbreaker.

    Hi everyone!

    I create this project to set color effects natively on macOS Catalina:

    https://github.com/1kc/razer-macos

    Please check it out and see if it helps you.
    Keyboards are working very well at the moment, while mice and mouse mats are still in the testing phase.
    Would be good if you guys let me know how well it works.

    Thank you very much for sharing, looking forward to more updates! Works like a charm for me with the Blackwidow! Would be awesome if you could somehow figure out a way to make the Chroma features fully customisable without using presets, nevertheless this is great!

    This requires software effects and the app running in the background. AngelusGalenia actually implemented this yesterday with customised colour cycling in our latest version.

    This is great! However, unfortunately my Mac will not open it because of the "malware" however I will get around this. Thank you for this project!

    Edit: Will there be support for the Mamba Elite at some point?

    The way to get around the security warning is to open your Applications folder and right click the Razer macOS.app and select Open. You may need to do this twice, the second time an option "Open" will popup and then you're good after that.

    Would it be possible to add support for the 'Chroma Base Station' as well? Thank you so much!

    So you're telling me I paid a couple of hundred dollars for a keyboard (Huntsman elite) for no support of software on macos? are you kidding me? I'm a software engineer and I love the feel of the switches , but I use many machines and the daily driver is a macbook pro ... this is just absurd!

    Voicing support for this even though the FAQ basically states they never intend to support macOS again.

    Sorry for that question, but how do I run this project? Through Terminal? Can I get some guiding steps for that if you don't mind?
