Sonible SmartEQ4 crashes Cubase 13

Until yesterday I was using Sonible SmartEQ4 with Cubase 12 without problems.
Yesterday I purchased and installed Cubase 13, and now every time I load the Sonible SmartEQ4 plugin, Cubase 13 crashes automatically. Even if I try to open sessions saved with Cubase 12, Cubase 13 crashes. However, I can still open them in Cubase 12.
Any suggestions? Thx

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Could you attach the *.ips/dmp file, please?

Mac: macOS Console utility > Crash Reports (or ~user/Library/Logs/Diagnostic Reports).
Win: %userprofile%/Documents/Steinberg/Crash Dumps

Hi friend,
I just found the solution:
smart:EQ 4 uses the UDP network protocol to share data among different plug-in instances. Therefore, a typical reason for the inter plugin communication error could be that your firewall blocks network connection.

I only had to create a rule in my firewall (Little Snitch) to give permission to Cubase 13 incoming and outgoing connections (as I just installed Cubase 13, I did not have the rule created as for Cubase 12).

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
