I tried searching, but all other posts that are somewhat in line with my issue are years old. Not sure if there's been any improvements. 


The GUI lags significantly on OSX Mojave on a brand new 2018 MB Pro, no plugins all native stuff only, I'm guessing its 8-14 FPS. Which makes it quite nasty to work with. 


Is this still a known issue ? If so, any workarounds ?

What a pity, Apple ruined it once again. Not helpful for you, but maybe for others:  Stay where you are, best is to stay at Sierra, if you want working audiounits, and stay High Sierra, if you don't want low fps. Until there is any sign of life from the devs.


redhoot: The only idea I have is that you try low resolution mode, you can set it in the Renoise.app properties.

@ffx , thanks. Launching in low resolution solved my issue! 


Hopefully we can get native retina support in the future.
