All seems the same as 10.5.12 for me. Used for the last 2 days and only had 1 spinning ball Force quit, caused by a UAD plugin.
The contrast for dark mode text fix has worked bar 1 plugin, but on the main menus all seems good.
Loving the selected mixer channel with a bright colour setting.
Have put cut head and tail on Metagrid buttons and enjoying when working on vocals.
Plugin report is cool, found out I had 2060 installed!
The new startup Page when crashed Is a worthwhile addition.
The colour scheme looked slightly different and am happy with my adjustments.
Still seems that the average load meter goes up on soloing a channel…
Generally quite happy with these improvements.
Intuitively I am thinking that the increase in cpu between 10 and 10.5 may well have something to do with the new eq channel and spectrum display.
I use this a lot now as very easy with my controllers and happy with the colour scheme I changed to. Just wondering if cost is more cpu as something like Harrison legacy q has a big increase whilst using the analyser, which Harrison advises you to turn off, when not needed…
