I updated my OS to Sonoma and VCV Rack 2 (free) is being ‘slow’ to respond. Till about 30 mins ago, a right-click on the rack would mean the library opens up. Now, the damned MacOS wheel appears for a bit before it does. And when the library does open, I search for something by typing and the wheel shows up again.
I’m using the 2.4.1, macOS x64.
Any help would be appreciated (the absolute last resort: uninstalling Sonoma). Apart from creating music, VCV is a gateway for my anxieties and helps me unwind, so a resolution here would be much appreciated
Overall, the Rack has become sluggish and slow.
Thanks in advance!
I’ve read a few times that many people experience macOS to be sluggish after a major update, because it does all manner of re-indexing etc. So if this was your experience right after updating that might explain it. If I were you I would just let it sit there for a few hours. Then shut the machine completely down, start it again, wait 5 minutes and then see how Rack behaves after a couple of times of opening it.
Thank you, Lars. I’ll give that a go.
I’m considering upgrading to Sonoma. Did you ever resolve the sluggishness issue by giving your Mac time?
I avoid “upgrades” to macOS like the plague. Every one of them removes some feature that I like.
For instance, a few “upgrades” ago they removed the “Save as…” menuitem from the File menus, and added “Duplicate”. It was no longer intuitive which version you were working on. It was a long time before I found out that you have to hold the Option key down to get “Save as…” in the drop-down File menu to get it to appear.
After my last update, every time I turn off or disconnect my Bluetooth headphones, the Music app automatically starts up, playing some random tune. How is that an upgrade? I’ve not been able to find a way to stop that behaviour.
So, unless you have a compelling reason to do it and your system still does what you want it to do now, don’t upgrade.
Glad I saw this. Experiencing the same thing. I’l, also try what Lars said.
I am very interested in updates from users that took the plunge, since I am on the verge, hesitating (and not doing it for the time being…).
Thank y’all for keeping us updated !
