MacOS High Sierra Compatibility

A quick update regarding the compatibility of our software with MacOS High Sierra released by Apple this week: so far, so good

We have not tested all hosts applications yet, but the plug-ins and PatchWork standalone application appear to be running fine.

Just be aware of the following changes / limitations:
– Audio Units require the system to be rebooted after install (they are not recognized before the reboot).
– Audio Units won’t load in Garage Band unless it has been already granted extended access for another plug-in (for some reason the option is not proposed for our plug-ins).
– For the plug-ins stored on a SSD, presets lists are not arranged by lexicographical order.
– since 32-bit Carbon has been removed from the system, some third party 32-bit plug-ins or host applications using this deprecated technology may not run properly. So it is recommended to use 64-bit applications and plug-ins instead!

Feel free to comment if you encounter any other issue with our software – we will keep testing in the coming weeks, as audio applications get certified for this new system, and we are working on updates to remove the limitations mentioned above.

Enjoy your new system!
