    Well always keep it on anyway, don't just "try" it.
    It works as an extra layer of basic security, and it's ridiculous it is given to us off by default, which is why I mentioned it.

    When you block a .app. you are blocking the Standalone. You have not blocked any of the plugin versions as AU. Or any plugins loaded which may actually use VSTi's inside a Wrapper. Like Patchwork.

    In LuLu, you can block entire sources of headache like /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components, /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST, /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3, and so on. You should remember that while lower directories maintain permissions, anything you add to that directory does not automatically inherit them. you need to periodically apply the rule so it applies to entire current content.

    I only used the Omnisphere standalone when checking if the problem still exists, but nevertheless I am gonna block the VST/Component too and see what happens

    This is what I've been implying all along.
    I didn't even conceive that you would only test the standalone!
    As I said, the DAW will call out on behalf of the plugin.

    it's good to figure out firewall configuration anyway. this part should be like waking up in the morning.

    but this is the kind of thing any real release group would remove from the program. or this one is installed wrong. a neat little time bomb and nothing to do with the fact he has MacOS installed on PC hardware.

    we just both type too quickly :)

    but same problem on two versions doesn't align with that, unless the first time bombs. and he just updated over an explosion.

    But you said earlier that it's alright now that LS has blocked Google?
    I thought you were sorted?
    Oh, you used LuLu again?
    F LuLu! Use LS now!

    Yeah but as I said I am gonna buy legit Omnisphere anyway in some weeks, so I hope that I won't need LittleSnitch. But since they got a black friday 30% discount maybe I am gonna buy it. I just hoped maybe it's somehow possible in LuLu or somewhere else to block Omnispheres connection to google

    Only outgoing, not incoming.
    And if you have any other non-legit plugins, you will still need Little Snitch.
    Even if you are totally legit, it's still a great protector to have. It's wild out in the web!
    As I said, it stopped me from landing on a site page that would have given me instantly executable malware if LS hadn't have put up a block page over the site. It saw the malware. That's called a drive-by situation.
    You need to protect your musical work tool device if it has to go online.
    Most commercial studios have computers that have never been online.
    ??? :)
