Default Reaper on OSX freezing at will

While tracking in Reaper [v5.40/64 rev 584a8e (Mar 23 2017)], it freezes for no reason that I can identify. There are no new plugins that I've installed or am using, and the interface is the same I've been using for a while. The only thing I can think of is that I recently upgraded to Sierra (v10.12.5). Could it be that the current version of Reaper has some sort of conflict with this version of OSX? I've trie shutting down all my other applications, and I've been monitoring my Activity Monitor for memory issues, and I see nothing out of the ordinary. Is there any logging that I can turn on, look at or provide here that could help diagnose what is causing my Reaper to continually freeze? Thank you in advance! Cliff

Are you using a USB interface?

Apple updated some things in the USB subsystem, IIRC.

Maybe download Etrecheck and post the result here?
Alternatively, are you used to reading logs in Console?

Reaper doesn't conflict with OSX 10.12, at least not for me and not that i know of in general.
Actually, it runs utterly smooth.

- Did you update from 10.11 to 10.12.5 (totally not recommended) or did a clean install of 10.12.5 (highly recommended) ?

- What type of audio interface ?
You are using it's latest driver and you are sure it's OSX 10.12 compatible ?

-What do you exactly mean by "reaper freezes" ?
Please explain in more detail please.

- Which Apple computer you use ?

- Make sure the clock (sample rate of your audio interface) matches Reaper project sample rate.

I am having this same problem too, I posted about it recently but have not had anything help it yet. I was thinking of uninstalling Reaper and reinstalling it again but i'm not sure how to do that without losing my settings and songs in my reaper folder. I too was using 10.12.5, just updated to 10.12.6 but the issue remains...
