On macOS, Native Instruments products and the audio software they are used with require Full Disk Access in order to function correctly.
Full Disk Access is required to avoid the following issues:
- The standalone version of a Native Instruments app crashes.
- The DAW crashes when trying to load or playback the project.
- The Native Instruments app browser is empty or incomplete.
- Issues while exporting or rendering audio.
- Long loading times when opening presets.
- Native Instruments plug-ins are blacklisted by the DAW.
- Plug-In Validation fails in Logic Pro.
Note: More information on Full Disk Access can be found on the Apple website.
Please grant Full Disk Access to all NI apps, NTKDaemon and other audio software:
- Open your Mac's System Preferences and select Security & Privacy.
- In the Privacy tab, choose Full Disk Access.
- Click the lock icon in the bottom left of the window and enter your macOS password.
- Ensure that your desired app appears in the list.
If it does not appear in this list, click the + icon and add the location of the app from here:
- Native Access and other audio software: Macintosh HD > Applications
- Other NI apps: Macintosh HD > Applications > Native instruments
- Once completed, click the lock icon again.
Note: the look of the Full Disk settings can vary depending on your macOS version.
- Restart your computer.
