Hi everyone,
I have a problem, I can't solve for a year.

I have GT-100 connected to Mac mini M-1 Big Sur.
All drivers and apps are up to date.

One day the BOSS TONE STUDIO for GT stopped seeing the patch library. :-[  :-[  :-[

But the device works properly. I see it in the Core Audio, I can record audio and midi in a DAW,
the only thing I can't do is edit patches using Tone Studio.
That's how the device tab of the app looks like:

What I've tried:
- complete removal of all drivers and reinstall
- using different USB slots

I have no idea how to fix that and can't find anything relative in the Internet.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks!

IF THE LIVESET DOES NOT APPEAR AFTER UPDATING THE BOSS TONE STUDIO
The location the Livesets are stored depends on when you installed the BOSS TONE STUDIO. If the Liveset created before is not displayed after updating BOSS TONE STUDIO, copy all files in the Original Library to New Library.
 
Original Library
/Preferences/BOSS-TONE-STUDIO-for-GT/Local Store
New Library
/Application Support/BOSS-TONE-STUDIO-for-GT/Local Store
 
Close all applications.
Click on "Go" in Finder.
The MENU appears.
While pressing the Option key, click on "Library".
*Since "Library" is a hidden folder, it will only be displayed while you are pressing the option key.
Copy all files from the original library to the new library.
Launch BOSS TONE STUDIO and make sure that all live sets are displayed.

If Tone Studio still does not work, there is a 3rd party alternative GT-100 editor for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Thanks Elantric, but the Library is already in the new folder.
I still can't see any patch from GT-100 in the app.
I can jump into the Tone Central and open some sounds and even edit them, but not the patches form the GT-100.
:-\
In case it matters,
BOSS TONE STUDIO for GT ver.1.1.3,
GT-100 Ver2-1 Driver ver 2.1.4
Mac Mini M1 OSX 11.6.4

It looks like the app doesn't have some kind of permissions or something.

Yes, trust me.  :D
FxFloorBoard is safe to install and use,
 Microsoft Windows will question the installation process as the app is not Window$ certified, just click on continue.
Mac OS installer will require Security settings to allow 3rd party app installs.
