When I had some problem with the audio (apparently boom crashed in background) I checked the Sound Preferences in System Preferences, and found a extension called DeviceName, I don't remember myself installing this, and it doesn't have any kext installed along it, How Do I uninstall it?

You have an audio driver.

Check out the path below to see if you can make progress


Restart the audio service

osascript -e 'do shell script "launchctl kickstart -k system/com.apple.audio.coreaudiod" with administrator privileges'

    Is there any reason you run osascript -e instead of just sudo launchctl kickstart -k system/com.apple.audio.coreaudiod
