Apple Core Rot: Serious Audio Issues with 2018 Mac mini (Distorted Audio, Crushed Sound)

If you’re an audio user, you might want to read this thread before a considering a new Mac.

Here is some info on the current situation with Apple’s Mac Mini 2018 and 10.14.2.

My work machine is a late 2013 MacBook Pro Retina which has a USB headphone amp and a USB microphone attached. MacOS 10.14.3 broke audio in such a way that only one of these will work—if I output sound on the headphone amp, then the microphone cuts out. I’m having to use the internal microphone for the time being. I have a bug report in with Apple.

Naturally, serious work gets done on an AMD EPYC machine running Linux that I recently built.

MPG: it’s sad that Apple cannot seem to build a machine (and software) for years now that is viable for pro apps.
