It looks like this is related to https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-87014 as setting the QT_MAC_WANTS_LAYER=1 environment variable did allow 3.2.2 to launch.

It also looks like the 3.3 beta on Patreon upgraded Qt to 5.15 and successfully launches without changes so this seems to already be fixed for the next release.

I replaced Sonic Pi 3.2 with 3.3 beta and it starts on Big Sur, but it is not playing any sound.
Do I need to delete some local data?

[update]
It is working now after a few restarts and deleting /user/.sonic-pi

I have the following issue in Big Sur:
After a fresh restart, Sonic Pi works fine.
When it’s for a while in sleep mode, it will not play any sound, even after quitting and reopening it again. Tried to kill some processes, but it didn’t worked.
Anyone has an Idea?

It looks like there might be a bug in SuperCollider’s scsynth engine (which Sonic Pi uses for its audio) running under Big Sur. It could be that this means that SuperCollider thinks you want to play your sounds years into the future, so is patiently waiting for that to happen ( General support ticket for macOS 11 Big Sur · Issue #5168 · supercollider/supercollider · GitHub)

Unfortunately we’re still a little way off declaring Big Sur compatibility. This is mainly due to the fact that we are built on top of a number of dependencies and therefore need to wait for all of them to become compatible independently in addition to any issues specific to Sonic Pi’s codebase (which I’m not seeing any of yet).

I should also add that I’ve upgraded my main Mac to Big Sur - so can reproduce this problem locally and have significant impetus to fix it and release an improved v3.3 beta as soon as that becomes possible :slight_smile:
