Every DAW and standalone VST type product needs to be configured before you can do anything with it, so I tried doing that with Wren at first (I'm on windows 10 but anyway) and I too could not get any sound out of it.
I tried again, downloaded a new version (he updates it frequently) and simply opened it up and loaded a patch, without installing or configuring it at all. Example patches are here http://bluehell.electro-music.com/modul ... /index.php
Try doing that: download the zip file of the new version, don't configure it at all, just turn it on and load a patch.
Please note that the first time you run Wren it takes about a minute to create its own help docs. Don't panic. It is not destroying your hard drive.
Also, it did not crash my computer, and it did not eat my cat.
You can't run it within your daw, but "start rendering" means "record," so you can still record all you want, and then take your recordings into your daw and have a party.
If you like it, send him some money. I did. I think this project is amazing, and his patches are vast and intricate, and they go on being interesting and surprising for a very long time.
