...Plugins provided without installers do not work at all unless you de-quarantine them from Terminal. This is not a bug. It is by design, and will never be fixed. So, for example, Air Windows or Analog Obsession. It's not hard to fix, but it's annoying. ...
I was entirely unaware of this. Thanks for mentioning this. Why is this a thing? Mac OS has been a system that for ages hasn’t necessarily required installers. There’s usually no uninstaller mechanism for software, so having the demand for an installer, where companies can dump extra unneeded stuff on my system (like NI’s five different languages of PDF manuals), where i have to then hunt down and delete said unnecessary stuff, is annoying.
In short: Code signing and notarization requirements have now been extended to plugin libraries, whether audio or otherwise.

For applications this was not a problem. You could always right-click the application and choose "Open" to de-quarantine that application. But there is no GUI method for doing this with a plugin. Thus the need for a terminal workaround.

Here's how you do that, by the way. Download and unzip or otherwise copy the unsigned plugins you wish to install to a directory. By this I mean the .vst or .component files themselves.

In terminal, change to the directory containing your unsigned plugins files. Then:

Code: Select all

xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine ./*
Note that this command is recursive. If you have plugins in subdirectories where you run that command, it will hit everything in those subdirectories.

You can now copy/move them to your plugin directories as normal.

Thanks for the details. It’s utterly stupid that there’s no UI to handle this.
