Version: 3.0.9c
Hello, developer, are you still there? Been on Channel D's website for months: "This notice is a warning that such applications will not be compatible with a future MacOS. The current version of Pure Music will not run on the forthcoming MacOS 10.15 (Catalina), which will require an updated version of Pure Music supporting 8 byte memory addressing. Do not install the Developer or Public Beta versions of Catalina (10.15) to use with Pure Music 3.0.9c. (This is not related to Apple renaming iTunes to Music, which in itself is a non-issue for Pure Music.) "

It's an outstandingly good app on a Mac except that it won't run on Catalina.
