Issue and workaround: Critical error Mac mini macOS Mojave: Could not boot Sonic Pi Server #1999
I am trying to install Sonic Pi on 25 brandnew Mac mini (2018) for a school. Unfortunately, it cannot be booted.
I see the issue has already been reported here. However, I still post my details of the error as it might help solving the issue.
Sonic Pi Boot Error Report
I found the following workaround which might help finding a permanent solution:
We have a Behringer USB audio-interface in house. When I plug it to the mac Mini, the system has an input-device (Which can be seen in Preferences) once it is plugged. Then, Sonic Pi starts and can be used. Even if the interface is unplugged once it is up and running.
Any ideas how I can prevent SonicPi from waiting for an input source? (I don't need it)

@ohag - yours is a slightly separate issue to the original post. You are correct that it appears when your airpods are connected via bluetooth: this is a well known issue, due to a limitation of Sonic Pi's underlying sound synthesis engine, SuperCollider - the input and output sample rates need to match. (See Sam's comment on #1856 for a work around).
