iMac desktop running Mojave, less than 3 years old. Had to erase OS because, according to Apple Geniuses, Studio 1 software was the likely culprit causing frequent crashing.
Uninstalled and reinstalled, after research, the Universal Control.
Uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times Studio 14 Artist. Tried activating it more than a dozen times, nothing happens, or I get a pop up windows saying "My Presonus says 'issue'" and, if I wait long enough, admits failure.
When I open S14 and my preset template, I get "MISSING DEVICES, MIXTOOL" so recording is not going to be as I wish it to be. The only good news is that the crashing seems to have been alleviated, but that is probably because the software is not activated?
