Running 'Pd-0.52-1-really' on a 2021 M1 Macbook Pro. When I need to change my audio preferences (namely my audio output device) in PD, I can select the output I need, but when I click 'Save All Settings' or 'Apply' the following happens:
- 'Audio off' switches to 'Audio on' in the main PD window (the DSP checkbox does not respond, it remains unchecked)
- PD freezes: clicking OK or cancel in the Audio Settings window yields no response, the window will not close via any means. Similarly, if I have a patch open this will also freeze and cannot be closed. I have found I can close the main PD window, but I cannot quit PD- I have to force quit via the finder.
Upon reopening PD it's a gamble as to whether the audio setting I changed has even been remembered. This is extremely frustrating and is rendering the software very unreliable and hard to use (especially as I use it almost exclusively for audio).
Also, if I skip the process of clicking 'Save All Settings' or 'Apply', and just hit 'OK', the audio settings window closes, but the program still freezes in the same way.
Additionally, I'm trying to open a patch that contains a load bang to start DSP, and this will also freeze the program.
Has anyone else experienced this, and can they suggest any solutions? Thanks!
