Tried the reinstall option.
This does not fix the underlying problem software which uses AU plugs instead VSTs . From the error messages it appears to be related to the lack of identification under the apple security system to do with app signing. The message it gives me when trying open Final Cut or Logic Pro X says I have a trial version of Portico and prompts me to buy the plugins again (which I already have done) from the Steinberg shop.
Looks like an issue with app licensing as Steinberg opt to sell direct and not the through the app store therefore presumably saving themselves the fees apple wish to charge software developers. So Apple make it difficult to try to force their revenues up by using their app signing coding which they argue are “security features to keep mac users safe” So can this be bypassed so the AU plugs are properly installed and identified in the software which uses them.
Its frustrating that customers of these expensive product get caught in the middle of a corporate war and suffer despite having paid good money for the products. Perhaps all Portico users need to get together and organise a class action law suit to get the product functionality that was promised.
Yes we can send our complaints to Steinberg as that where we bought our product but it appears someone has already raised this and they do not seem to be giving any priority to a fix. It may be a premium product from the consumer view, but its clearly small change to them. So all users lose the use of something which should work with all audio DAWs given its mean’t to be an AU plug as well as a VST one.
This is the second problem like this on these plug ins. The first documented in this forum and raised with support relating to the GUI and mouse focus, is it any wonder that you think twice before investing your money again.
Come on Steinberg allocate this to someone to chase the fix so it works as an AU plugin.
This is everything that is wrong in the digital world with software.
