    Hey everyone,

    do not update to 14.4 yet!
    The new update causes serious problems with PACE iLok software on Apple Silicon!

    UPDATE: The Problem seems affecting only Logic Pro users with AU plugin and somehow Avid!
    PACE, Apple and other plugin developer are aware of this!

    SOLUTION FOR NOW: Run Logic Pro in Rosetta mode!

    From Sonnox: "This issue affects plug-ins from all manufacturers protected by PACE / iLok when used with AU host DAWs such as Logic."

    Bummer for Logic folks, good thing I'm a Cubase owner.. :wink:

    Not according to liquidsonics and other devs. I'll listen to them first thanks

    "Multiple reports are beginning to come in from clients about a compatibility issue with yesterday’s release of macOS 14.4 Sonoma on Apple Silicon Macs so caution is advised before upgrading to this point release."

    I have this issue. Basically any ilok plugin I own refuses to validate without rosetta mode enabled. If i then return to native they all fail to load.

    I have a Intel HAckintosh with Antelope Audio Interface. I got also an Email from Antelope 2 days after i did the update that they advixe me to not update. HAHAHAHAHa

    So the Whole Antelope Native Bundle was not working under 14.4.

    Now i reverted back to 14.3.1. Now its running Again.

    All Antelope NAtive Plugins are protected via ILOK.

    I also have the binaries and AAX/VST3 and AU Files here. If somebody is interested.

    Of Course Un.......

    Yeah, I think iLok/PACE will always have issues because Apple will continue to work on security updates that will break it, wish they actually had some developer preview so they can be ready on day 1, instead of playing catching up, looks really unprofessional.

    There ARE developers betas!
    Everyone got an access to them. Just enable Beta-Updates in your system options on your Mac.

    Those are the public betas.. As an Apple developer, they should actually have access to the legit developer releases (and the resources that come with a dev account), which are usually a few days before the public ones hit.
