I was only able to move to Big Sur via updating to Catalina then updating to Big Sur. YMMV, but this is how I got this to work from whatever version was out last spring. of course, the UAD driver is different for Big Sur than Catalina.Trouble started when I upgraded from Mojave to Big Sur 2-3 weeks ago. Lots of trouble with drivers that BS doesn't like/refuses to install properly without shoehorning with SIP off.
I just enabled VT-D 3 days ago, hard to say if this made matters worse.
I think I have the UAD reset script, thanks.
They should stay unchanged from old to new config.plist when using “Update OC” / “Reinstall OC”I think so, but always good to double-check. I noticed these didn’t get enabled or changed:
- SecureBootModel = Default
- UpdateSMBIOSMode = Custom
I updated from OC 0.7.3 to 0.7.4 with your terrific hackindrom 2.0.1 tool, but after reboot my hack hung with an error:They should stay unchanged from old to new config.plist when using “Update OC” / “Reinstall OC”
New entries (also type changed entries like Boolean -> String) introduced by Acidenthera Team will have admin’s configured value but when it is not available then OC failsafe value will be applied
Hm. If I change something in OC, I need to cold boot otherwise my UAD card is missing.If it's not seen(no device found) loading the driver with kextload will not help. Nothing happens.
I don't think a real Mac would do much better, BTW. Maybe maintenance would be easier.
What makes Logic and Cubase unstable is a combination of 3rd party plugins. It will work fine one day, but after a restart the project suddenly refuses to load or crashes. The crash logs points at some random 3rd party plugin, but that's not it. Reshuffling the way the plugins load will often fix the problem.
I have less trouble with Bitwig, it might be that they have better protection/sandboxing against misbehaving plugins.
On the other hand, I use Bitwig more for sketching and as a playground, the real work is done in Logic or Cubase.
And I like to test new plugins, so my system is always in a state of flux.
What doesn't help either is that I never commit stuff to plain audio, I will keep MIDI with lots of software instruments and plugins until I bounce a master. I could freeze/commit stuff, but the whole composing/recording/mixing/mastering stuff is now a fluid process, and committing breaks the flow for me.
