Disappointing, looks like my Deathadder V2 X Hyperspeed on Macbook M1 is as useful as mouse for 10EUR, Synapse 2.0 is not supporting this mouse model on mac. I wish I knew it earlier, I would have bough Logitech.

i love razer,i also have a lots of davices of razer for my pc,but i love my macbook too! so i wanna they work well on mac please!

When will we see Razer synapse 3 on MacOS and why isn't it already a thing? I'm not talking about the chroma part and light managing side, I'm talking about the shortcuts switching automatically when you switch programs
Just switched to a Logitech G815 and G502 X keyboard and mouse, sadly leaving behind my Razer equivalents. Swore I'd never go back to Logitech after their mice developed the double-click failing on me, but here I am. I will miss my Basilisk, but at least Logitech hardware and software is made available and supported on Mac.
Fingers crossed they will bring us back in the loop someday. I can't imagine its a hard task to make a MacOS driver, i'm so confused as to why they wouldn't roll out with this stuff with every update?!

Up To Date, current RAZER peripheral primary focus is towards "gaming".

Apple needs to level up the playing field.

Hi Razer Team...
sorry don't want to wake you... this discussion is been going on for years. Not that you found a solution for it, but you don't even take a stand to the topic. Isn't it sad to read brands like Logitech, Steel Series or Corsair in this thread? Yes? No? Or do you just don't give a shit? Well I wish you very much success with more pink Kraken Kittys, apparel collections and things that really matter.
Sad story, sold my Basilisk Ultimate, bought SteelSeries, returned it, bought Logitech, have it unboxed on my desk, bought OrochiV2. I'm in love with it on both MacOS and Windows. Parallels could not handle the Synapse v3 in order for me to configure the DPI switch to a random key, did this on my Windows laptop, yet I don't feel confident because on WinOS it fails to pair using the Bluetooth so that I could check if any configuration is being possible via Synapse v3 in BT mode. On the other hand, the usual problems on MacOS without Synapse - Back/Forward keys are not being recognised in World of Warcraft for example as keys, at all. There's no complete happiness.
Razor makes my favorite gaming peripherals, but I finally gave up waiting for Razer to support Mac. Somehow Logitech, Corsair, and other vendors can all figure out how to make configuration software & drivers for current versions of MacOS. I regretfully gave away my 3 Razer mice plus an Orbweaver to my son who uses Windows for his high school.

FWIW, I bought some new hardware, and can confirm SteelSeries mice and its iCue config software works great under Ventura.

If Razer gets their act together regarding Mac, I'll come back to the brand. But I'm not holding my breath.

Hi there,

I can't have my Razer Naga Pro fully working on Mac OS Monterey because Synapse 3 has no support for Mac.
Fortunately I can use BT connection and use it as a standard mouse, however I can't set hotkeys, which is the main reason for me to have a mouse such like that.

I am very disappointed that a product such as this one come with no compatibility for Mac users. I should have stick to the Logitech G604 which had all these functions properly working...

There is a solution
Connect the mouse to a windows computer with Synapse 3 installed.
Then install hotkeys as you want.
It will work when connecting back to macos

It would be great if we could get some traction on adding support Mac OS X for Synapse 3. I just purchased my Blackwidow Elite and would like to use it for work too which is Mac. I am disappointed there isn't cross platform support, will there ever be cross platform support or should return my keyboard for another?

Are newer devices also compatible with Synapse 2?

... I would have loved to know this before paying for it. well in any case back to best buy it goes, and I will get Logitect product. always good value.


really disappointed that they did not feel that they could spend a bit on the Mac platform, I develops software on mac system and making Synapse 3 should be an easy port in any case figure out some 20k$ more or less.

In any case back to best buy I go. returning my first and LAST Razer product.

Yeah, used to have a mac before I got a pc using synapse was a hell hole to put it lightly.
The interface is all weird when its on mac.
I just received my Viper Ultimate and can barely use it on my Mac running OS 12.4. The least they could have done is mentioned this in the product specs/requirements. I wouldn't have bothered. I guess it's time to return it?

Yeah I gave up on Razer. I have the new ProBook with the M1 chip and I was using the Tartarus for productivity work in 3D softwares on my PC but I have now switched to ZSA Moonlander keyboard on both machines. Way more expensive but super happy with them 🙂
I really expected more from Razer. Come on guys. Mac is the new platform of choice. Get with it.

Someone found this. The thread was locked so I am reposting it here. Confirmed it is working. A little clunky but I am sure you guys can figure it out. No button assignment, but colors, battery level and detection worked for my Naga Pro on Mac 10.14.6 Mojave https://github.com/1kc/razer-macos

It does a pretty decent job with colors, but fire, ripple, and overlapping effects are nonexistent in this github download.
I just recently purchased the razer homerun bundle and ever since I plugged all of the products into my mac, I had to use this https://github.com/1kc/razer-macos. I mean its pretty good and all but I've see what Razer Synapse 3 can do. It makes the github download look like trash. heck, its 2022. Razer, I bet you've hear this millions of times but I'll just say it again, please, and I mean PLEASE make razer synapse 3 compatible with mac. Just look at this thread it overlook all the people that need this.

I'm thinkig of selling my naga pro since I mostly use Mac. Bad customer experience tbh.
I too have been duped into buying the Kiyo Pro and found my way here after digging around for support beyond "on" and "off". The amazon listing didn't mention compatibility at all and in 2022, one should reasonably believe Windows and MacOS are universally supported. I'll be returning this piece of useless trash immediately.
REALLY?

No Mac support? WTF?

Just bought a tartarus v2 keypad I can't use... didn't even consider keyboards not being compatible with Mac before I bought it...

please devellop the synapse 3 for macos 11.4 ... I can't use It and i can't use my Razer tartarus V2 :-(

Gg
Is Razer really that stupid they didn't make a v3 for Mac? Thank goodness I can return this trash product to Amazon
