How to open an app that hasn't been notarized or is from an unidentified developer

Source: Apple Support https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202491


macOS includes a technology called Gatekeeper, that's designed to ensure that only trusted software runs on your Mac. Although the Syntheway Audio Units, VST and VST3 plugins are outside the App Store, they are from a trustworthy source and haven't been tampered with, so you can temporarily override your Mac security settings to open it. 

On macOS Catalina or Big Sur, by default when an app fails to install because it hasn’t been notarized or is from an unidentified developer, it will appear in System Preferences > Security & Privacy, under the General tab. Click 'Open Anyway' to confirm your intent to install the AU, VST or VST3 plugin.

 

The warning prompt reappears, and you can click Open.*

The app is now saved as an exception to your security settings.

*If you're prompted to open Finder: control-click the app in Finder, choose Open from the menu, and then click Open in the dialog that appears. Enter your admin name and password to open the app.
