Hi there @Dj_KnighteHawk
Unfortunately no, there's no way to load or convert ANA 1.5 presets so that they will work with ANA 2, they are totally 2 different synths.
Next to that you might run into many other issues with other plugins or DAW outside Logic X. During the past weeks I received many emails from DAW & Plugins manufacturers warning people and telling them to wait before upgrading to Catalina, it was risky to take the early adopter road IMO.
- 2 days ago, Logic Pro X was also updated to 10.4.7, make sure yours is up to date before trying the following.
It's up to you to try the following, it might very well be that it's purely & simply a compatibility issue between ANA 1.5 and MacOS Catalina, taking those steps is just a way to ensure that the Catalina upgrade didn't break ANA 1.5 current installation.
You could try to back up your user folder inside ANA 1.5 install directory and remove files & license, then reboot your Mac, start Logic once without ANA 1.5, close it and then reinstall ANA 1.5 and the License file ( you can re-download them from your user account https://www.sonicacademy.com/my_account/downloads/plugins ( be sure to be logged in before using the link ), rebooting your Mac after new install prior to open Logic.
But again, this is just what you could try to be sure & check if this could make ANA 1.5 working under Catalina, I really can't tell if its compatible with this MacOS release.
IMHO, it's a good habit to stay at least one release behind the current Apple one, I know it's tempting or sometime needed to upgrade in order to get other apps upgrades and new features, but really when it comes to audio, you have to be cautious with those MacOS upgrades.
Any chance to restore your Mojave, did you make a backup ?
To uninstall ANA 1.5 files and the plugins and backup your user presets, you can do the following, no warranty that it will make it work with Catalina though.
- Go to your MAC HDD DRIVE/Library/Application Support/Sonic Academy/A.N.A
From there go to the Presets folder and either you created a User Presets folder in there or onto another location, then you want to copy & backup this folder, or your own presets where saved onto the Factory library folder.
So best thing is to back up your entire Presets folder IMO, you'll be able to re-download any purchased presets pack from your account and the factory ones will be re-install upon new installation, but it's up to you to find and backup your own presets.
Once done remove the entire A.N.A folder.
AU : Your MAC HDD DRIVE/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components remove A.N.A x64.component ( 64 bit version, if you have any 32 bit A.N.A.component in there, remove it too.
VST : Your MAC HDD DRIVE/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST remove A.N.A x64.vst same rule if you have any 32 bit A.N.A x64.vst, remove it too.
- Then Empty MacOS Trashcan & reboot your Mac. Start Logic Once, close it.
- Re-download ANA 1.5, License and any purchased presets packs from your S.A account.
- Unzip the archive, perform a new installation of the plugins and License then reboot your Mac again.
- Upon restart start Logic, open up an instance of ANA 1.5 and see if it works or not.
Again, there's no warranty that this will work, it's just a clean way to be sure that everything is set as it should be and to avoid any permission files corruption or issue due to the Catalina upgrade.
Hope this helps, feel free to report it back here on the forums.
