audio engine process died on startup

I’m attempting to use the Dorico 2.2.10 trial but I’m having an issue.

When I try to open Dorico 2 I get the ‘audio engine process died’ message and then the program hangs. I’ve tried numerous times and have of course restarted several times as well.

I’m on OS X 10.12.5 and use Cubase 9.5 with no problems. I see that others users have this is but the solutions aren’t given in the threads…

I’m happy to send more information but I’m not sure what is relevant.

Please help! :slight_smile:


Can you please go to /Users/your-username/Library/Application Support/Steinberg and zip up the “Dorico 2” folder, and also go to /Users/your-username/Library/Preferences and zip up the “VSTAudioEngine2” folder, and email them to me at d dot spreadbury at steinberg dot de, and we should be able to figure it out!
