Crashes with Mac OS 11.6

Almost always my computer crashes using Mac OS 11.6 (it did not do this with the prior operating systems) when Audirvana 3.5.50 has launched and I try to start the first track of any selected album. After the restart things work fine until the next time I start Audirvana.

Hello @toma,

You mean Audirvana is crashing or MacOS?

Audirvana freezes and then in a couple of seconds the mac totally crashes.

Can you send us a copy of the “Debug Info”? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>General>Debug Info

You can try reducing the buffer to around 2000 mb. That seems to help many folks

Sorry - where is the option for buffer size?

Do you have the same issue while you have your Mac mini speakers selected?

Actually problem solved - I turned off Integer mode - someone else’s suggestion - and gave Audiovana standard rather than highest priority.
