BB Manager now won't open and macOS recomends sending it to the trash

Haven’t had to do any editing with BB Manager for a while and when I went to open it up the following message popped up:

Any thoughts on what happened?

I just tried to open it, and having the same problem here!

Running Catalina 10.15.7 BTW

There are several threads on the forum addreasing this issue. Here’s one of them Mojave or Catalina: how to get the BeatBuddy Manager (BBM) installed and working

And another good one: macOS BBManager error when opening - #28 by sg315er

Probably a key takeaway for Catalina users is to

  • Delete the BeatBuddy Manager (BBM) app
  • Empty Trash
  • Install BBM app in Applications folder
  • Reboot the Mac
  • Launch BBM and if it opens, all is good but if not, use the ctrl-click method to get the Mac to recognize that you are authorizing the use of the BBM

The delete/reinstall method worked.

The good news is all the files were still there. Now that’s confusing - if the app was deleted the files should have been too.

Unfortunately, folks that make great hardware are at the mercy of their software developers for their reputation. Presonus is a another example of some great hardware handicapped by its software.

One step forward…Two back.

Not necessarily. The app should be located in the Mac’s Applications folder and the data (bbworkspace folder) should be located in the Documents folder.

Glad it worked out for you.
