Default SWS / S&M Extension Mac OS Catalina 10.15+ xattr workaround

For extensions on Catalina or higher, you have to remove the Apple quarantine for them to run, in my case, this was done by running:

Code:
xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine ~/Library/Application\ Support/REAPER/UserPlugins/reaper_sws-x86_64.dylib

THANK YOU. This worked.



Similarly, FWIW to anyone else, to get other VST plugins to work:

sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST;/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST3;/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

I have been doing a clean install on my new Mac these last couple of days, and encountered my SWS not being recognized just tonight. I tried to get my sws extension to work using the system preferences 'allow anyway' while Reaper was trying to open but the timing always seemed off and it never worked. I don't like doing anything with the terminal as I wouldn't be able to fix anything I screwed up so I shy away from that.

This was just kind of a fluke that I thought of this, as I am not particularly computer savvy, but it worked!

With Reaper closed first open "system preferences" on the Mac go to "security & privacy" and unlock. Then go into user/library/application support/Reaper/User Plugins, then double click on the reaper_sws-x86_64.dylib file itself, and it will try to open into a text file, the message will pop up and you will see in the system preferences the warning along with in the lower right corner an "allow anyway" click on it, and the text file will open. close the text file. Now open Reaper, it went right thru for me. I opened it up three more times works every time all my extensions are there and working.

Hope this helps

Default Still looking for answers here

I am having issues with Reapack which I guess involves SWS. Maybe need to go back to old reapack and SWS 2019 version? I'm on Catalina 10.15.7 MAC. Someone help me here!

This worked on my M1 Mini. Running the Intel version. So far all the plugins I've tried seem to be good.
