Im using this from GitHub to change the colour of the Hunstman Elite on macOS Big Sur.

I know its not Synapse but it's better than nothing.
This is such a poor decision, needs support
This is ridiculous 😕
I'm almost certain Razer support doesn't even check the forums (they haven't responded here after almost a year)
It's probably a better idea for everyone who wants Synapse 3 on Mac sign this petition on Change to get them to do something. The goal seems to be 500 signs so if everyone on this thread chimed in, it'd likely reach the goal soon
I want to also chime in, as the #111 post, that I would use Synapse 3 on macOS Big Sur, and even Synapse 2 for that matter. Thanks!
Actually I just wanted to know whats the big issue impending Razer to port their Chroma SDK to MacOS. I realize that the Synapse / Chroma Studio was rewritten from scratch, but I cannot understand why we have a iOS app to remote control modules and we even have support for consoles (so this is not something written in, let`s say, .NET Framework). I also know that developing for Mac can be a big hassle and it is somewhat costly, but doesn`t the profits in selling for this market and the aggregate value compensate that?

You know, this is the 110th entry on this thread so only here we have some thousand bucks being spent in hardware from other company, and that is not even the matter of these ppl hating Razer, totally the opposite actually. Also the habitual customer from a certain company tends to get their kit based on this, and something like that is a huge no-go. Talking for myself, I`m just passing every chance to get a Tartarus since it would be used exclusively on a Mac (as a custom DAW controller) and I`m even considering not buying a Lancehead for my gaming rig as well. You can think 110 customers aren`t shit but actually I`m just one of the thousand clients out there peeking at this conversation every 6 months or so without posting, so this is a very loose number for a salesforce guidance.

MacOS market IS a big one, you see, ppl going for Razer swag are not only Mac gamers but there`s a lot of audiovisual professionals, developers, and even ppl that would like to explore the possibilities for a SDK integration on other softwares. Well, it`s a real shame no one cares.
I have been checking this forum every few months, hoping for an update on this...nothing. This is ridiculous. I am an editor, and I used to use the Naga every day; I told every editor I know to buy this mouse, so for Razer to stop supporting OS is insane. Please offer some sort of solution.
Got two Tartarus Pro v2 for my lady and I. No support for mac its a DAMN SHAME. Not only that but no warning, Make it clear for your customers that your product is lacking. For the money these things cost you think you could afford the development for mac. Thankfully I just bought a Logitech MMO mouse and their software supports us. Razer, you lost a customer here. SMH.

I recommend Logitech to any of the gamers out there like me that jam on a mac, or anyone that wants to macro a mouse for work. As a developer I LOVE MY G604.
Got a BlackWidow v3 and a DeathAdder v2 from my partner for my 25th birthday. She bought them for the pretty lights that we can change.

Imagine both herself and me discovering no Synapse3 support. Heartbroken to say the least...
so disappointed
one more here with the same problem, i just bought and if they don't enable support i will have to refound.
How can we make this post to the top? Frustrated about the support!
Please make OS version. Or tell us how to and we can create it
Welp, just another person who spent hours debating on which Razer product to purchase to only find out I was wrongfully assuming it supported Mac. Wanted to LOVE my Blackwidow v3 Quartz, I've been eyeing a Quartz keyboard for the LONGEST time and knew Razer was the best in the game, but this lack of Mac support is killing me. Sadly returning this lovely clicky keyboard. Can't believe it's 2021 and there's no Mac support. I don't get what the hold up is!
dude this sucks Most people here just want to have a cool looking and feeling mouse but without MacOS support it sucks
So what is our workaround if Synapse has been deep six’s which I simply can’t accept, except for the fact it’s illegal in Australia to sell products as supported - then retract it: Australian Consumer Law says 7 years FOI.

Synapse is slow... but I will take it over a light show which can’t work... but this won’t fly.
Well, after a lot of fiddling I was able to use Karabiner to remap all the things I wanted from my mouse. Super happy with how it turned out! I'd strongly recommend this to anyone who is also undergoing frustrations of mouse mappings.

Not having Synapse 3 is no longer a concern for me, I won't even need a separate profile on my mouse, the same one I use for Windows will do. Still, I wish you all who still need Synapse 3 on Mac eventually get it... peace.
RE: Lost Windows/ Command (Cmd) Key on Razer Synapse 3 for Mac/ Catalina/ Quad-Core 16G Ram
Razer Synapse 3 massive lag time opening;

Razer Synapse for Mac is removing my Cmd/Windows shortcut key regularly AT THE MOMENT (Normal/disconnects/normal...then disconnects). Spoke to Apple Senior Technical Support and we verified from the "Show Keyboard Viewer" option Cmd had NOT DROPPED on an Apple Extended Wired Keyboard.

And losing Copy-Paste functionality breaks the keyboard, no matter how good it is.

Now I want to impress upon Razer I purchased Razer across the board for RGB in low light settings, and some physicality...not to play RPGs endlessly.

Please confirm Mac support is ongoing from Razer for updated drivers please to macOS, and some possible workarounds for dropping Command Keys (Windows Keys) as this breaks keyboards on Macs, RGB or not.

Adding myself to this thread, how I wish there was support for this. I love my Naga Trinity mouse but without Synapse I cannot use the Change Profile button of my mouse, I don't understand why I need Synapse for this in the first place.

MacOS is full of the weirdest shortcuts and I have to use ChromeOS, Windows and MacOS every single day. My life would be so much easier if I could only change mouse profiles when in Mac, hope we can get some help here eventually, thank you!
it is ridiculous that it's been this long without getting a mac release at least in the works. what is the reasoning here?
Just bought my first Razer Mouse. Pro Click for my homeoffice.
As a mac-user i'm disapointet now realizing that theres no possibilty to config the mouse.
Synapse 3 is not running on mac. Synapse 2 does not Support Pro Click.
Razer please find a solution for that issue!
Another broken mac user checking in.

It's been years of buggy work arounds up till now which has always been a struggle, but since Big Sur things have been completely broken. Can we get a mac support roadmap at least?
I've always used Razer on Mac but it hurts that I can't use my Razer Blackwidow Elite and Razer Basilisk V2
I do not want to change brands because I like it a lot but I ask that Mac users not be left without support
Adding my more-than-two cents. Purchased the Sieren Mic and Kiyo pro as they received the best reviews on sites I trust. Regretting this now, the kiyo pro doesn't even perform as well as the internal macbook camera without adjustment, and any web cam control apps I try cannot access any fuctionality needed (zoom, FOV, even brightness). This is a really expensive paperweight without software to control it. I'm happy to try alpha / beta version to assist in getting this rapidly released!

I'm in the exact same boat 😕
Been 2 years... how long it take to write a driver?
