I was trying to use the python pyo library and got the same error.
Looking for a solution, I found this link:
I created a new admin user on my mac, and it worked for me.
But I still don't know why I can't use Pd with the original user, who also belongs to the Admin group ...
Thanks for your fast and kindly response.
I think I have done everything: trying older pd versions, opening the first time with right click, check file permissions, change file permissions with command line... but nothing seems to work.
I mean, the app seems runs ok, it ask for permission to access my folders at the first time, and open patches ok. But it refuses to open PortAudio every time I click on DSP, or when I made changes to Audio Configuration.
I was wondering if maybe Jack is needed... is the only thing I did't check...
Thanks again David.
error opening audio: Internal PortAudio error
Hi, Puredata Pd 0.51.2 refuses to open audio. Everytime I try to setup audio I get "error opening audio: Internal PortAudio error" on the console.
I have tryied with the MOTU interface and built-in iMac audio interface and the behaviour is the same.
It use to work before. I have tryied older Pd versions with same results.
My setup is:
iMac (21.5-inch, 2017)
macOS Catalina 10.15.7 (19H2)
MOTU Ultralite mk3 hybrid
Pd Pd 0.51.2
