Sorry, i don’t know whatta you mean by “dumbed down”.
All i can say is that it runs incredible snappy on my macbook pro retina, i have encountered no bugs or crashes so far.
I really like the Dark Mode.
I have a feeling everything is looking abit more defined and sharper in Mojave than High Sierra.
All plugins i installed so far on Mojave run without any encountered problems (like for example all plugins from Native Instruments).
Other DAW’s i installed (Bitwig and Reaper ) on Mojave run also without a hitch.
I haven’t done any Geekbench comparison (yet) between OSX High Sierra and OSX Mojave Beta 4.
At least do SOME kind of testing before proclaining it works.
It’s definately NOT funny when you upgrade an OS only to find things have stopped working.
Load an old project and work with it.
Start a new project from beginning to end.
Beta 4 also worked for me; beta 5 does NOT. Wavelab will run, but Cubase 9.5 won’t load. Error message relates to a problem with elicenser but uninstalling and reinstalling both elicenser and 9.5 doesn’t work for me. Wavelab, as I say, remains absolutely fine.
Today i updated to latest Mojave public beta (7):
10.14 Beta (18A371a)
I also installed latest version of the E-licenser software:
eLicenser Control Center 22.214.171.1243 (from 15th of August).
I ran the Maintenance in eLicenser Control Center.
I then started Cubase Pro (latest version: 9.5.30).
Cubase starts without problem: no E-licenser error/issue anymore.
That’s really good to hear. Did you have other problems with beta 5 - like for example printing being broken? I’m wondering whether to be patient and wait for release or jump back into Mojave beta on one of my machines.
I’ve got an Epsom printer that works with AirPrint (if that’s what Apple’s wireless printing is called). Just like Cubase, that worked without a hitch through beta 4 but then would no longer print in beta 5. Would not print even if I connected the printer directly through usb. Be interested to know if printing works for you with beta 5, if you’re in a position to check.
