Rave Generator 2 In Mac OS X Catalina [WORKS!]

RaveGenerator 2 Get Ready 4 Catalina

Rave Generator 2 VST/AU :
how to make it work in Mac OS X 10.15 (Catalina)

“Help !!! My super funky cool RaveGenerator 2 plugin isn’t working anymore in Catalina !”
“Damn ! New Mac OS Catalina broke my favorite VST/AudioUnit for RAVE sounds”
“I wish i had never upgraded ! ”
“The end of the earth is upon us. Pretty soon it’ll all turn to dust ! SO GET UP”
Forget the past and follow these steps :

1) Download a x64 only build of RaveGenerator2:

-> Rave Generator2 VST for Mac <-

-> Rave Generator 2 AU for Mac <-

Choose the AU if you have Logic X, Ableton or any AudioUnit compatible DAW/Host, or the VST or both if you are a Rave Generator 2 hardcore fan.
You may have to “authorize” the download (it’s just a “ok” button to press)

2) Extract/Copy the archive somewhere (on the Desktop is a good place !) 

I tried to copy directly from the download folder to the plugin folder but it didn’t work…
So place the RaveGenerator2 plugin file on your desktop and then copy/paste this file to /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST (or Components).
Be sure to replace the old one if there any (the best is to delete the old, then paste the new one)

3) Open the Terminal and do the MAGIC workaround !!!

in the Terminal type :
sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/RaveGenerator2.vst

and if you want to devérole the AU, type:
sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/RaveGenerator2.component

You don’t have to disable the infamous GateKeeper, just start your DAW and do a plugin rescan if there was a previous version of the RaveGenerator 2 that was blacklisted.

Now RaveGenerator 2 is compatible with Mac OS X Catalina !
