Re: Totalmix and Fireface USB Settings launch on computer startup-MacOs

This is annoying problem.
I have 2 users in my Mac.
When first user login, Fireface settings and Totalmix open automatically and when person leave session open in background, it keeps Fireface settings and Totalmix windows open, so I can't open those apps, without rebooting or ask to logout session in background. Other person is not even using those RME apps..
So, please fix that Fireface settings and Totalmix does not FORCE start automatically. Thanks!
This should be pretty basic programming and every other app works that way..

Re: Totalmix and Fireface USB Settings launch on computer startup-MacOs

Unfortunately, this behavior is still the case with the latest version of the installed software: Fireface USB Settings and TotalMix always open a window after logging in any account on macOS Mojave (10.14.2).

We adressed this in the upcoming Mac driver that includes TotalMix FX 1.6. Multi-user support on the Mac was quite complicated to implement. Such things always turn out much more complicated than they first look like.

I'm waiting too for fix this problem. Just annoyed to see Fireface Settings to every Mac boot. I want just TotalMix self opened at osx boot.

OS High Sierra 10.13.6, RME UCX fireware connected

Thanks

Re: Totalmix and Fireface USB Settings launch on computer startup-MacOs

Hi Folks .. I have a mid-2012 MBP running High Sierra 10.13.5 .. I have two FF800's, one which I use for gigging, the other connected tp an Octomic via ADAT, both however using FW400 cable to connect to the MBP.

After reading a few threads on here I find that I am reluctant to update my OS to Mojave as I would still really appreciate it if my RME FF800's continued to work flawlessly should I upgrade from High Sierra.

Is it safe to update or should I stay on High Sierra ? Any fellow FF800 users on here successfully using Mojave ?

Many Thanks in advance for any recommendations, other apps on my MBP are kind of crying out for me to upgrade, but don't wish to if it means rendering my beloved FF800's obsolete !

Total Mix still appears in the dock every time the Mac Pro starts up.

Re: Totalmix and Fireface USB Settings launch on computer startup-MacOs

I find the automatic launch of these two applications to be highly unconventional for MacOS and quite irritating.

In MacOS, drivers run in the background. There's no reason to launch user-facing applications unless a user wants to interact with them. The only reason I should see any RME application, in the dock or the menu bar or otherwise, is if I choose to launch it or I choose for it to be launched automatically at startup.

I have a Babyface Pro FS and can't figure out what this app Fireface USB Settings is even for. As far as I can tell, I don't need it; I didn't buy a Fireface interface. I rarely need to make any changes in TotalMix; I set it up once for my needs and never need to look at it. So these user-facing applications should not be running in order for the audio interface to do its job in the background.

Hello!

Maybe this can help you?

https://www.mactrast.com/2017/03/automa … gin-macos/

FireFace Usb is the Driver's Settings for your BabyFace!
It's where you set sample rates, buffer sizes, ADAT options and various other settings for your audio interface!
You definitely need it!!

The name "FireFace" is there, because the BabyFace shares the same "DNA" as the Fireface line of RME Audio Interfaces!

Hope, this helps!

P.S: You could, also, have a look at the BabyFace's Manual. Lots of info in there!!

Re: Totalmix and Fireface USB Settings launch on computer startup-MacOs

I know this thread is a bit old, but having come across it, I would like to say two things.

First, the problem discussed is real and a legitimate concern.  Apps should not have open windows unless one has opened them, or there should be an option to stop them from opening.  It is inconvenient to have not one but two unused apps constantly in the App Switcher.  This is, however, an issue one can live with.

What is harder to swallow is RME's response in this thread.  I honestly feel disillusioned with my purchase after having read through this conversation.  I have perceived a similar tone from RME in other threads, but this one takes the cake.  Perhaps it is a matter of culture or translation.  However, I would very respectfully suggest that RME think hard about how it relates to its customers in this forum.

I hope these comments are taken in the positive manner in which they are intended.

Re: Totalmix and Fireface USB Settings launch on computer startup-MacOs

I have this also.

BUT

The 2x apps do no launch on startup on Mac, they launch upon connecting the RME device. I.e. if you boot your device without RME connected there is nothing starting up.
