SpectraFoo Complete was working just fine.

I was using it via Aggregate Device with Cubase Pro 10.5 just fine.

Yesterday Cubase Pro crashed. Restarting it I could not hear anything.
Checked SpectraFoo. Restarted it. Now SpectraFoo is waiting forever to start.
It never finishes - It is staying on Finishing Startup.

I suppose I need to delete the setups - where are the configuration files?

I re-installed and re-authorized but it is not working.

Using MacOS Mojave 10.14.6

Try trashing the prefs:

~/Library/Preferences/SpectraFoo/SpectraFoo Preferences

Thank you for the suggestion. I looked at this folder but there is not preferences for SpectraFoo there.

Well, that's where SpectraFoo's preferences are stored (this is the Library folder in your home folder). Make sure you are going to the right place:

You can do <command><shift>G in the Finder and then paste in the string:

~/Library/Preferences/SpectraFoo/SpectraFoo Preferences

to get to the correct folder.

I found them - they were hidden.

Here is what is there:

FFTWindowLib
Link Groups
Solo Group Library
SpectraFoo Prefs
SpectraFoo Settings Lib
Window Sets
Window Sets Files

What is the next step?

But I needed to exit it. When started again - it still freezes.

Please sample the SpectraFoo app when it is frozen using Apple's activity monitor and post the sample.
