Issues after upgrading my 2020 Macbook Air (m1) to macOS Monterey:
Battery life went to shit, have to enable low power mode on battery. Bitwig and SoundCraft MTK 12 mixer no longer cooperate. Issue #1 I don’t have a whole lot of evidence to support but it did feel like the battery life on my brand new Macbook Air M1 had gotten a lot worse after the upgrade to Monterey (12.
Restoring VM’s after a host SSD gets cooked.
