Did you try to manually de-quarantine it?

Open console, navigate to vst folder, then enter the following command:

Code: Select all

xattr -d com.apple.quarantine <filename>
Replace <filename> with the actual filename of pg-8x plugin. If that doesn‘t work, you can add a ‚sudo‘ before:

Code: Select all

sudo xattr -d com.apple.quarantine <filename>
Then you‘ll be asked for your user password.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Creativemind, that's true of course.

Money: I just placed the vst in libraries / audio / plugins / VST

My computer hasn't asked for validation as far I can recall.

Just saw madmacman's post; excellent info there, thank you!

Sorry, yes - Terminal. „Console“ is a false friend for non-native speakers.

And the greater than/less than symbols are a habit for a placeholder. Ignore them and try:

Code: Select all

 xattr -d com.apple.quarantine PG-8X.vst
EDIT: Oh, and you should first navigate to the folder where the plugins are located. But I‘m currently away from my Mac. Will have to look tomorrow where to go.

I have this plugin fo so long now: Does it come with an installer (pkg file) or as plain vst file which you have to copy to the correct destination folder? Then I could check out the correct folder - and prepare a ready-to-use command.
