HI, I have similar problems running osx Ventura on MBP16" full spec.
* Menubar crashes / not responding after launching Modul8.app
--force quit then it works 2nd try
I'm having a similar issue, but not able to get modul8 to relaunch reliably at all. I'll get the bouncing icon in my dock, which stops after a minute or so and then the only thing I can do is right-click the dock icon, Force Quit, and try again. This sometimes repeats seemingly endlessly. Every once in a while (after restarting my laptop and beginning the process again) after, say, 5-6 tries, modul8 will magically launch--but if I close it and try to relaunch, the whole process starts over again.
And what's extra
frustrating is that the same thing is happening with MadMapper--except I've yet to have any success with MadMapper launching at all.
I'm on a 2019 Macbook Pro 16" (Intel)
2.3GHz 8-Core i9
AMD Radeon Pro 5600M 8GB / Intel UHD 630 1536MB
16GB 2667 MHz DDR4
Both pieces of software were working before I upgraded from Catalina two days ago.
I ran the modul8 preferences smasher just before the OS upgrade when i was trying to solve an issue I was having with the sound input pot snapping back to zero on its own.
