So recently I've gotten a new Mac from my work and it came with a bug that I hadn't experienced before.
Every time my Mac goes to sleep or I remove my headphones for a few seconds it forgets or doesn't register where the new audio output is. So every time (a couple of times a day) this happens I have to go in to the preferences menu in AE and go to a random tab, check and uncheck a random box, press OK and voilá, my audio is back. it really doesn't matter what preference I change.. I just have to change SOMETHING and change it back since I don't really want to change anything and only then my audio will be back.
This is a small bug but it has been frustrating me more and more, it has been months..
I have a new Mac model with the latest updates. (OS and AE are updated).
