Hello! I am trying to run this on my Intel Mac running Monterey and I keep getting the error code "zsh: event not found: /usr/bin/swift"

How do I solve this? This is running in Terminal, it seems that's how it needs to be done.

Does anyone have the trial installer for Logic Pro 10.6.3, for Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7? The link above for 10.4.8 works, it's just older.

Also, for those looking, @b0gdanw has final cut has links here. https://gist.github.com/b0gdanw/956b1edc61145ea21ac4a8c1f6cdccc9.

Digging around through archive.org I found this link for the trial version of 10.6.1. Keep in mind, I had to use free download manager to download it, chrome would keep going to network error. Also seems to be a version before the sidechain bug.

10.6.1:

@karanmgandhi, run it in the Terminal app.

Shortcuts is running it as administrator and therefore ~ refers to root's home (as opposed to your user's home) which is not where .ffuserdata is stored.
