macOS Sonoma 14.4 Upgrade - Advisory Notice

Update: March 25th 2014

Apple has today released version 14.4.1 noting a fix for this issue, so if you have been affected, please update to the new version.

macOS Sonoma 14.4.1
This update provides bug fixes for your Mac, including:

  • USB hubs connected to external displays may not be recognized 
  • Copy protected Audio Unit plug-ins designed for professional music apps may not open or pass validation
  • Apps that include Java may quit unexpectedly


Advisory Notice:

The new release of macOS Sonoma 14.4 for Apple Silicon Macs has introduced issues with PACE / iLok protected licenses, primarily as we understand with Audio Units for M2/M3 systems, and plugin validation within Apple Logic Pro X (although other DAWs and formats may be affected as an unknown at this time).

We therefore advise users to not update as of yet to 14.4 as a precaution whilst investigations are had, and not before any such issues are resolved by either parties (Apple / PACE) with an official update.

In the interim, we have been notified that Rosetta seems to be working for some for continued plugin use. Thus, if you have already upgraded your system and are having issues running natively, please try Rosetta.

Thank you,

Joey Sturgis Tones
