Sorry, maybe I'm being thick here but what has this to do with Wave Agent?

Why?

Because software that needs to recognise or communicate with a device would operate at a lower level. I don't know if a reboot is needed but like I said I would not be surprised if it was.

Not sure of the need to communicate with the Mixpre-3, Wave Agent only needs to be able to take an existing, standard, multi-wav file (or WHY) and convert it into separate .wavs?

Usually Mac programmes run in their own space separate from the OS kernel too.

Nothing, but is has something to do with the Mixpre-3 which is where this thread started.
As mentioned, it isn't exactly on topic, but the OP might find it useful.

Ah, no wonder I got confused. Others were talking about Wave Agent, I passed on my puzzlement about the required reboot and you responded with something which in that context was a non sequitur but which you were relating back to the OP.

Still puzzled and uncertain about the reboot, though.

Hello Chris,

Thank you for contacting Sound Devices. Whenever system files, hooks, etc. need to be modified, a restart is required simply because they're in use while the system is up. The program has been out for years and is quite safe. However, if you are still uncomfortable installing the software, please do not proceed.

Which tells me nothing at all I don't already know. Ho hum.
