    Greetings Audio Lovers,

    im about to fully restore my Mac from a Time Machine Back Up, im a little worried that my k'd Vst and Plug Ins won't work after that (e.g. Omnisphere). Im on macOS Sierra 10.13.4 and everything is running smooth, is it a problem to do so or is here anyone with experience doing this.

    I've downgraded ( not upgraded ) from Sierra to mavericks after I've tried to see how Sierra would work for me, and I didn't like how the upgrade made me lose some plugs I like to use, and I got everything back to "normal"

    So, I guess backing up your system with time machine won't affect your K'd plugs

    I just did the same thing (restoring from Time Machine). It was super painless and there weren't any system hiccups I noticed. If your VSTs were working fine when you made the backup, they will work fine once restored from the same backup.

    First of all, you're on High Sierra (Sierra only goes up to 10.12.6). Second, so long as you're restoring to the same machine, you should be fine (although I'm aware there's a whole new HD protocol with High Sierra that may or may not change things). The worst I've ever had to do from a TM restore is re-input a few serial numbers, but I've never had to re-install anything or go through any lengthy re-k procedures. I've had a few issues when installing a new hard drive or using a TM backup to migrate to a new machine, but it's a lot less painful than having to reinstall everything from scratch.
