I’m experiencing a problem with version 3.5 after installing today. Whenever I open a project file (new or old), the audio engine fails. The project does not hang, but when I open Edit—>Device Setup, I get an error box saying “Error connecting to audio engine.” I can manipulate the file, but if I try to save or quit, Dorico hangs. Interestingly, it also hangs when I try to open the new VST Plug-Ins tab in Preferences.
If I open VSTAudioEngine3 on its own, I can verify that it is running without issue in the background via Activity Monitor. Now, if I launch Dorico and open a project, VSTAudioEngine3 will crash, and the issue persists. Then, if I manually launch VSTAudioEngine3 while the Dorico Project is open, Dorico will immediately crash, but VSTAudioEngine3 will remain running. It seems there is some issue preventing Dorico 3.5 and VSTAudioEngine3 from running simultaneously.
I have tried switching audio devices and completely uninstalling Dorico 3 and 3.5 before re-installing 3.5. I have also tried purging as many related files in /Library/ and ~/Library/ as I could find before re-installing. Any help is greatly appreciated. Diagnostic zip attached.
