Searched through the forums quite a bit for this. Couldn’t seem to find anything related to this problem.
Was working on a practice rackspace for one of my band members to practice piano, down in our studio…where this Mac lives. (As it is our studio computer as well as live rig) And this glitchy annoyance reared it’s head yet again! So I thought while it’s fresh in mind I’d mention it. I know the workarounds and the keyboard shortcuts. So it is firmly an annoyance. It doesn’t impact the programs usage or purpose in anyway. I’ve pretty much just learned to deal with it since I bought the laptop and installed GP4 on it. Yes, it’s been a while.
The “glitch” I’m finding is ONLY in the wiring tab. Regardless of the plugin I choose, AU or VST/VST2/VST3. Heck, it even does it for the built in GP objects. Regardless, if I’m right clicking on the audio objects, midi, anything.
If I’m trying to right click for any reason on anything in that wiring editing window. The context popup menu just blinks in and back out of existence. Within less than a millisecond. Sometimes, it doesn’t blink…sometimes nothing happens at all! Sometimes, it works perfectly fine, and I can access the options in the context menu. Sometimes, I can spam the right click mouse button as fast as I can click, and cause it to pop-up and stay. Although, it’s a very random that trick ever works. (Leading me to believe it’s on some kind of cyclic pattern)
It’s never a thought or factor in playing live. ONLY if we visit the wiring page. (Which we’ve never had to do LIVE, It’s one of the things I love about GP) Upon loading GP everything works great. In fact everything always works great…concerning the program itself.
We use a 2021 Macbook Pro M1 32gb RAM. Currently running the latest version of OSX Ventura 13.2.1. Just upgraded that, seeing if it would fix it…nope. Stayed the same. (We’re on a break from live shows at the moment, so It’s the perfect time to upgrade things and play with settings.)
Running an RME UFX+ as the in home studio interface, running on USB 3.0 (Due to RME’s Thunderbolt 4 issues), Using a Behringer X32 Rack as the stage interface running on USB 2.0. Does the same thing…on both. The Behringer X32 setup has FAR less stuff plugged in to the laptop, leading me to assume, it has nothing to do with a USB interfaces.
Ableton is used for our set-listing, tracks, midi triggering, Lighting control etc. Although I have attempted to edit on the wiring page with no other programs running and nothing else plugged it. Including the interfaces. The glitch persists.
I’m running the lastest version of GP. Always run the latest version. This problem has been going on since I bought the laptop in 2021. Never addressed it. Because again, it’s not a BIG deal. As I edit our rackspaces on a Windows PC. And they perform flawlessly.
The program is NOT running in a rosetta emulation mode. (Just confirmed that as I wasn’t even sure)
Here is a video link of me TRYING to right click.
Anyone know what I’m doing wrong here.
