Mac with Scarlett 2i4....distortion...

Postby 3sl » Sun Nov 03, 2013 11:23 am

So I just go myself a scarlett 2i4 and when I try and use it with my mac everything is distorted. Apparently it's using an ASIO driver, however this device does not come with ANY drivers. So I'm thinking I need to somehow get Cubase to use the device with Core Audio rather than ASIO.

The device works fine with Core Audio apps.

Any ideas?

Specs:
Mavericks
Cubase 6.07

According to focusrite site, it does come with drivers, and there you can also find a tipps and tricks concerning audio glitches under MAvericks - and still Mavericks is not supported by Steinberg yet.

Yes, the drivers are for Windows. I have a Mac. Will check out the state of Mavericks support.

Thanks

I can see a "Scarlett USB 2.0 - OSX 10.9 Mabericks" - should be Mac..?
