macOS High Sierra 10.13 and iOS 11 Support for M-Audio Products


New operating systems add amazing new features and security to our world but that can often come at the cost of compatibility with our current software and drivers, many of which are vital pieces to a studio or DJ setup. While software and hardware drivers can be updated to account for the changes in a new operating system, this is not always immediate. To prevent any downtime waiting for an update, it's much easier check the compatibility of your gear before making the jump. This article is a list of all macOS High Sierra and iOS 11 compatible M-Audio hardware and software, as well as what you'll need to know before updating.





3 Things You'll Need to Know

  1. Is my product supported? We're happy to tell you that most M-Audio products are already supported on macOS High Sierra without any need for additional driver or firmware updates. If you haven't already, check our list of supported class-compliant and driver required products below to make sure your M-Audio product is ready for the update to High Sierra. 
  2. Apple's new OS includes new security features that require the user to allow a system extension when installing a new driver. This is very simple and only needs to be done once for each driver. So, if you're installing any new driver on macOS High Sierra, look out for the following pop-up message and check out the driver section for instructions. 

    The good news is that this is only necessary if you are installing a new driver. If you are updating to High Sierra and already have the latest driver for your device installed, you will not need to re-install the driver or complete these steps.  
  3. While your M-Audio products are ready for macOS High Sierra, that doesn't mean everybody is. If you use one of our products with a third-party software title like Ableton or Cubase, be sure to check with the developer to confirm support for the new OS before updating.

Driver Supported Hardware

Required: All driver supported products on macOS High Sierra will now require the user to allow the system extension in the Security & Privacy System Preferences. After installing the driver, the following pop-up will appear to report that the driver extension has been blocked:

To enable the extension and allow the driver, navigate to System Preferences > Security & Privacy. Restart the computer first if this is necessary to complete the driver installation. Under the General tab, look for the "System software from developer "(driver developer)" was blocked from loading."

Click Allow. Follow the prompts to restart the computer if necessary and the device will be recognized normally on startup. It will only be necessary to complete this process once.
