Here are some of my favourite bits from Factual TV I've written music for...

NEWS:

Apple 2019 Mac Pro - PCIe, M.2 NVME storage solutions (Sonnet, OWC etc) stop working after Sonoma update.

Since November last year, Mac Pro 2019 users, a popular choice for composers, have been hit with an issue if they have their storage connected via a PCIe card, another popular solution for composers.

I, like many others keep all my orchestral and virtual instrument sample libraries on an array of very fast, M.2 drives. These drives are connected to a card, which in turn slots in to an expansion slot that the Mac Pro has. The Mac Pro is the only apple computer with these expansion slots, making it the only choice for composers who want their sample libraries on such a fast drive. Nothing else compares on speed, making the whole musical workflow efficient and fast, in theory!

Since apple updates in November last year, people using drives in this way have been hit by their drives randomly disappearing and not showing when the computer starts up. 

Because this is such a strange, but destructive issue, only affecting a small number of people who do quite specialist things with their Mac Pro's, I've added a page to document my own testing and troubleshooting process. I've done this in part, because Apple have disabled the conversation about this on their own community support pages.

Anyone who has any insight on this, please reach out on my email, or the online chat here.
