Topic: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

I'm running Totalmix 1.73 along an UCX interface (gen1) on a 2020 iMac Retina 5K (new install, latest USB drivers, latest firmware for the UCX). The graphics card in the iMac is the AMD Radeon Pro 5700 8 Go. Whenever the Totalmix window has to be displayed again (for ex. when waking up from sleep, or when enabling/disabling the screensaver, etc...) it is not displayed correctly, but rather like a pattern of scrambled multicolor lines (see attachment).

If the window is moved, or simply resized by its borders, or minimized to the dock and maximized again it does not revert to the normal display (it stays scrambled)

However if I quit Totalmix and launch it again, or if I simply maximize the window (with the green MacOS maximizing button) and minimize it again, it forces a complete redraw and Totalmix is displayed correctly again.

Any clues as why this might happen ?

Use this version and it should work:

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Thank you for your quick reply !

I went ahead and replaced my version with the one downloaded from your link but ... same behavior.
By the way it still reads "Totalmix FX Version 1.73" when I display the info from the "About ..." menu.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Exactly the same problem here since MacOs 11.4 (I think) and the new version also didn't solve it. I am running a hackintosh which is nominally an iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019 with Radeon RX 5700 XT 8 GB (actually based on Gigabyte Designare:https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/succ … .267551/).

My interface is a trusty old Fireface 400.

The ZIP contains the 173 not 174b1, may be a mistake in the rush hour.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Unfortunately the b2 version did not work. The TotalMix window is still scrambled after sleep.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Here on M1 Macbook Air BigSur all fine.
The previous version did work well and this one is doing the work.
The issue with the missing top part in full screen mode is still there, not a big problem we can live with that.

I can not comment on Hackintoshs. This new version solved the issue for a Mac user, so I expect it to work for those.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

I don’t think it’s solved - The thread starter did not yet report back and waedi never had the problem in the first place. Maybe it's related to the type of graphics card, I guess it’s not very common for audio guys. In this case there is really no reason why this bug should be specific to hackintoshs…

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Hi again Matthias,

I have downloaded the new 1.74 beta 2 version (labeled accordingly now) and replaced the previous version.

Unfortunately....no changes for me, as soon as the screen goes to sleep, the TotalMix window comes back scrambled, just like before the update.

Screen capture links below, with the hardware and software details included, just in case :

Can you reproduce this on your side on a similar configuration ?

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

We have a lot of Macs but none that does this. The user where we could fix it had a Mac Pro. As it is summer holiday time now further versions will take some time to come up.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

I updated to Totalmix 1.74 beta 2 MAC OS X (1) and I'm still getting this problem when my iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2020) goes to sleep. I'm running macOS Big Sure 11.4.

Not the end of the world (I can fix it by changing the zoom percentage) but would nice to get fixed eventually.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Hi Matthias,

As per your recommandation I have installed the latest version you sent me, TotalMix 1.74v TV3 (test version 3).

The strange behavior is still present...so I'll have to wait for yet another version. No worries, everything else works,
but it's just a bit annoying and "unprofessionally" looking from time to time (even though I only use this iMac at home).

I did get your argument on the holiday time, people have to get a well deserved rest from time to time also, so I'll
just keep playing with the window zoom display ratio, just like AdamBier, in order to get my "healthy" TotalMix display back.
By the way, all this happens whatever the display ratio chosen (from 50%, unusable on an iMac retina display, up to 180%, which makes it look like Grandma's computer !!)

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Just an update, this afternoon I used my mac as usual and ... the bug didn't occur, despite several screen saver launches and even after waking from sleep.

I can't understand what happens, I did NOT restart the machine, NOR changed any configuration or installed any software. I have just continued my work starting exactly from the point where I had stopped yesterday (did not even quit some other running apps). Only thing that happened in-between was the long "sleep" period during last night and through the day. Automatic updates are turned off, also.

I'll surely report back if the bug comes back.

PS : Now I see Apple pushes the 11.5 OS update, I'll probably refrain myself for the moment ....

I did update to that 11.5 and had to reinstall the driver and give OK to these security doors etc. After reboot all works fine again, no issues.

did what Mathias provided us and still Same problem here Running Big Sur 11.5.1 strange thing mailed rme can't help me either sad

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

I'm running Totalmix with a UFX on a 2020 iMac Retina 5K - AMD Radeon Pro 5500 XT, and am having the exact same graphics bug after my Mac sleeps. I've done just about everything I can think of to fix it, incl. installing Totalmix 1.74b2 as recommended here, but still get the bug.

It's not a huge deal, as maximizing/minimizing the window fixes it, but I hope to get a real fix soon!

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Just updated to the Monterey beta and the problem went away!

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

Same problem on macOS 12.1 and 1.76b1. The corruption usually occurs when plugging / unplugging an external monitor.

With 1.76b1 it got corrupted only the first time I unplugged the monitor and used only the MacBook display. It automatically recovered when replugging the monitor and continued working fine when unplugging again. Previously it would stay corrupted permanently until restarting TotalMix FX.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

You needed to restart TM FX? A simple resize of the TM FX window did not help?

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

I didn't try that on 1.76b1. On older versions it did not help. I'll try it next time it gets corrupted. I also have the window sized exactly to fit my controls and don't want to mess that up each time.

Matthias its not how it supposed to work do a simple resize !

why in Catalina everything works fine and in Big Sur not

get your programs solid Bec we all pay a lot for our interfaces

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

I had thought tmfx 176b1 fixed the bug for me, and it did help, but not completely. Before tmfx 176b1, I got the bug every time my Mac went to sleep. Now, I only get the bug when my Mac goes to sleep while Logic Pro X 10.7.2 is open. Resizing the tmfx window still fixes it.

Re: Totalmix 1.73 MacOS BigSur graphics bug

I have the same problem - scrambled display after sleep mode. I have just tested the 1.76beta1 with Big Sur 11.6.3 on iMac (Retina 5K, 27", 2020) and the error persists. Changing the resolution as suggested works as a workaround, but still an annoying issue.
