FMOD keeps hanging (macOS Big Sur)

Hello, first-time poster so sorry in advance if I break some/any rules.

I’m trying to run FMOD Studio on my 16" MacBook Pro running Big Sur and, all of a sudden, whatever I do FMOD hangs (macOS beachball). It doesn’t crash, after some time (between 10 seconds and 1 minute) it resumes and everything seems to be fine. Until I do something else and it happens again.

This behavior is very inconsistent, but it seems to happen all across the interface.

I tried uninstalling, and also running an earlier minor version (happens with 2.02.05 and 2.02.04) with no luck.

Didn’t see any thread about this so I wonder if anyone has anything to suggest. Thanks in advance.
