There Is a Github Application witch lets you customize RGB colors and mice sensetivity
Try it. Its completely safe, Here is proof.
ive just bought Tartarus v2, and found that i cant use it on mac 🙂 lucky me i bought it preowned to try. buy anyway... didnt think that there are no mac support for razer soft in 2022

can someone advise what keypad to use on mac ? (not for gaming but for keybindings in Photoshop and so on?)
Just Got a Razer Cynosa v2, Currently using it with the github application. RAZER PLS ADD THE MACOS SUPPORT FOR SYNAPSE 3
This seems to work. At least far better than synapse.

This recognizes the mouse, and grants rgb controls.

This allows your side buttons to work.

Apple is worth 3 trillion as of today...Razer? are you sure that Windows exclusivity is worth it?

Anyone still inside the return window?...iCue for Mac & Windows! Razer, wouldn't it be nice if your customers didn't have to install a VM on whatever OS they choose to work on for their inputs to work as intended? Honestly charge more and hire some coders.

Corsair iCue for Windows& Mac!

Another option other than Logi, thank you Corsair. I'm going with the K100, sorry Razer It's just too annoying.
just bought the razer pro type ultra and realized there is no synapse 3 for mac os. guess i have tu return although i like this keyboard very much. 😞
Will be returning my black widow lite and buying a Corsair, with a higher budget just out of spite. $100 out of their pockets and $200 in a competitor's for showing such a braindead lack of support.
Guess I should return my Tartarus V2, what a waste of time

The best thing to do is to switch your hand with RAZER products, there is no support for the Apple platform anymore !!
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?

Anybody reading this post, if you are a mac user and you value having secure and up to date software and firmware for your devices, then it pains me to say, look elswhere.
Ive spent hundreds of dollars on their products myself, and while I do enjoy the performance and endless features when I use these with my pc, Its sooo.... not the same story if you use a mac.
Synapse2, (the only version compatable with mac) hasnt been updated in at least5-6 years, and is missing alot of features that windows users enjoy. So if you do most of your work(or play) on windows, its a worthwhile investment as far as productivity and gaming are concerned. But if you have come to rely more heavily on your mac as i have in recent years, youll definately regret the purchase!
I mean unless maybe apple buys razor, or some other unholy miracle happens soon. hope this helps
Hi everybody:

I use Karabiner Elements to change my keyboard key mapping or Tartarus key mapping. It's free.

And also I use BetterTouchTool to configure different behavior for the Mamba mouse buttons in different applications. Has lot of other features. 9€ plus VAT.

I now want to be able to map and change Macro keys in my Keyboard and the small buttons in my Mamba behind the scroll not to change sensitivity stage and use them for keyboard function.
So for that I had to install Synapse 1.87, update it and to be able to recognized then disconnect the usb cable and connect again. Well, not anymore. Follow reading.

I hope this helps some people.

Have a nice day.

Now in order to Synapse be able to discover your devices you need to unplug and plug your devices. This sucks. Thanks Razer.
# Install Razer Razer_Synapse_Mac_Driver_v1.87.dmg
# Do not reboot yet
# Open Terminal
launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/com.razerzone.rzdeviceengine.plist
launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/com.razer.rzupdater.plist
# Now you see Synapse Icon in Menu bar Open it and Update to version 188.20
# You avoid to reboot twice with this.

# What worked for me.
# Synapse in Offline mode in order to not to interfere with my BetterTouchTool and Karabiner setups.
# Install Xcode command line tools
sudo rm -rf /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools
sudo xcode-select --install
# Install uhubctl
brew tap mvp/uhubctl
brew install uhubctl
# Example from website
uhubctl -l 20-6 -p 3 -a cycle -d 2
Create a shell script named "":
before the end of the script I use this command to exit the Synapse 2 app from the menu bar.
launchctl unload /Library/LaunchAgents/com.razer.rzupdater.plist

# To launch the script every time you login with yout User
# Source
# Create a com.user.programtest.plist
cp com.user.usb_reset.plist ~/Library/LaunchAgents/

another one here, bought a naga pro and can't use it on my Mac :f
Just signed up to say how utterly disappointed I am with your company as I just bought a mouse from you.

I will NEVER buy anything from you again, it‘s a joke how you treat your customers. Heck, I will make sure that nobody I know will also buy anything from you ever again.
Sup. any comments from yours side?
Yes.. At least that!
If you don't planned to start working with Synapse 3 :frown_:, add ours devices to Synapse 2.0!
How is this still an issue.... It's been almost a year that this thread was created. A company with the calibre of Razer should have been able to fix this? Heck this shouldn't even be an issue in the first place...
This sucks. I bought a mamba wireless to use with my mac (work machine),
and synapse has never worked. It's been a year, and the third party drivers I've been using on this stupid thing are now failing, and still no synapse 3 for mac. WTF?
Up!!! Razer Naga Pro, same situation.... Razer come on!!! Help Mac OS users! Look at new laptops on Mac OS we need you...

Hey Guys,
I am switching to the ZSA Moonlander. They have support for MacOS, Windows and Linux. You can use the left side of the keyboard as a gamepad and its fully customisable with macros and all the good stuff 🙂
All I wanted was to use Tartarus Pro with Maya and Blender 3D softwares as it speeds up my workflow a lot. I am done with Razer.
great, did not know that!
New devices are not compatible with Synapse 2 anymore.
The only app, that is working on OS X with Razer is open-source RGB effects manager:

thanks for the hint ... great!
Razer, cmon! Let's do it! Give us support Mac users.

Just in case somebody actually reading this thread. Few days ago I bought RAZER KIYO PRO as highly recommended webcam. Today, when I connected it to my MacBook Pro, first thing I tried to search for software and in result found this forum. I searched more and it looks like as of today there is no software available for KIYO PRO on MacOS. Camera works, but I have no option to enabled HDR or change any settings.

Outcome: Returning it back.

P.S. Maybe SYNAPSE is not needed for webcam? Maybe it is a better way and you don't need to put all your hardware setup in one app?
