LUNA eLicenser Issues

We are currently investigating an issue that prevents Steinberg eLicenser-based Audio Units (AU) plug-ins from loading in LUNA on macOS 10.15 Catalina.

One or more the following issues may be encountered:

  • An eLicenser error appears when scanning plug-ins upon launching LUNA
  • An eLicenser plug-in is causing LUNA to crash or hang on startup
  • An eLicenser plug-in causes LUNA to crash when instantiated in a session

LUNA eLicenser issues on macOS 10.15 Catalina

Steinberg eLicenser-based AU plug-ins cannot be loaded in LUNA on macOS Catalina. At this time, it is currently not possible to add eLicenser Automation permissions. Synsopos, a component of eLicenser, cannot be accessed in the Automation column of the Privacy tab within the macOS System Preferences > Security & Privacy pane.

We are continuing to investigate this issue, but at this time there are no workarounds available for macOS Catalina.
