On some versions of macOS, Cubase 12 does not require access, so you can’t record through the software either. To fix the above problem, you just open Terminal and need to run the following 2 commands in turn:
- sudo codesign –force –deep –sign – /Applications/Cubase\ 12.app
- sudo xattr -d -r com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Cubase\ 12.app
Note that when Terminal asks for a password, when you type it normally, the password does not appear
Then you reopen Cubase will display a message asking to access the microphone, you select OK.
Then you reopen Cubase will display a message asking to access the microphone, you select OK. To check again, you can go to Security & Privacy and see if the Microphone section has appeared Cubase 12 yet!
Different from on Windows, Cubase 12 Pro MacOS is more balanced design, Export interface is not too big and hidden like on Windows. I also don’t understand why a world famous software has such minor errors.
