Soundtower Editor software not functioning on Mac when connected to UB-X8

I'm just using the demo version of Soundtower for OB-X8 just now to check it works for me but I'm having an issue on Mac only.

I appreciate the demo functionality is limited. But I have been able to connect OB-X8 to PC, open the midi setup from the main menu, configure it and see the buttons moving on screen when I twiddle the knobs on the synth.

On the mac the midi setup and all other windows do not appear while the OB-X8 is connected via USB. If I disconnect the synth from the Mac then the menu starts working.

My mac is relatively new and up to date OS wise. The OB-X8 has the latest firmware.

The PC works, so I don't believe there is an issue with OB-X8 global settings nor the USB cable, nor user error  ;)

Anyone else had / solved this issue? Thanks.
