Plugins location / path on macOS Catalina
In addition to the infos and procedures reported below, on macOS Catalina it may be necessary to install Xhun Audio plugins under the [Library] path
(instead of the proper [∼Library] path) in order to be recognized by DAWs / Hosts after a scan. Depending on the DAW / Host, a system restart may
be also necessary after plugins installation.
About upgrading to macOS Catalina
Due to the recent, very questionable strategies adopted by Apple starting with their macOS Catalina operating
system (for example, a completely missing compatibility with all legacy softwares - apps, drivers, plugins, etc.),
it is strongly recommended not to upgrade to macOS Catalina or most of pro audio softwares (apps and plugins) may definitely stop working.
How to successfully run Xhun Audio softwares on macOS Catalina
Gatekeeper is a macOS technology that steps in whenever you try to run a software (app or plugin) which hasn't been downloaded from Apple's App Store or
hasn't been signed using Apple's new notarization process. Unfortunately, this approach prevents macOS to be fully compatible with legacy softwares.
By the way, macOS itself offers a workaround to overcome this limitation. By temporarily bypassing Gatekeeper,
it is possible to run legacy softwares on macOS Catalina too.
Xhun Audio products are 100% safe, trustworthy softwares. In order to install and run them on macOS Catalina,
please follow the easy steps reported below :
Alternative readings / methods for bypassing macOS Gatekeeper
Install Xhun Audio softwares following all the instructions provided in the products packages. At the end of the process,
an operating system restart may be required.
Launch your DAW/Host software, load the Xhun Audio plugins you want to run and acknowledge the Gatekeeper warning.
Head to "System Preferences > Security and Privacy > General" and look for a note at the bottom of the screen about a
Xhun Audio plugin launch being denied.
Click on "Open Anyway" to bypass Gatekeeper and relaunch your DAW/Host software. The "Open Anyway" button is available
for about an hour after you try to launch a software (app or plugin).
