So then I put it on my Hackintosh laptop running Yosemite and law and behold, installing the version of Jack that comes with Mixbus 2.5 completely shut down my access to booting OSX at all!! Still boots into Windows, but OSX has gone fishing completely. Obviously doesn't play nice with Clover....

So I just found Harrison have a version of Jack they say to use on Yosemite, but this was not exactly well advertised. Maybe that one wouldn't have crashed out the laptop, who knows....

So now I have one main machine with Mixbus on it that won't even open and the other machine completely twatted by this until I fix it. Nice. Seems like the morning is for fact finding and sorting out boring ****e, not mixing......

Hackintosh users, beware!!!
Are you getting an error where it gives you the crash report and nothing else? I installed mixbus and had it crash on startup everytime. In the crash report, is there any info about not being able to find a usr/local/lib file or directory?

Check the Harrison forums, but I found this solution right after I emailed support.

cannot start jack server (RESOLVED)

I believe I had an issue with permissions from an old install of Audacity. All seems to be working fine after resetting permissions via console per the above link/thread.

Good luck!
