Audio Unit "Kratos 2 maximizer" cannot be added, the response is "Compatibility Issue: Invalid Component Identificator".
It used to be working fine in VOX. It is working in Logic Pro X and in Sound Forge Pro without any problems.
Voxengo Elephant does the same.
Apple components and other (Waves, Fabfilter...) are working as the should.

Can Kratos 2 maximizer be fixed anyway? This AU is real godsend for listening some classic rock compositions using my "dry character" audio system.

Will be grateful for any help or ideas.

    I have exactly the same problem with my Sonarworks Reference 3 Audio Unit. It's always worked fine but I upgraded to High Sierra the other day & I the AU hasn't worked since.
