Steinberg Product Compatibility Info Regarding Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks

Apple's Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) has been released and you might want to upgrade to this new operating system as soon as possible.
Below you can find a chart with the current compatibility status.

As a prerequisite make sure to always have the latest eLicenser Control Center installed prior to the application installation itself and please use the latest application update available.

Users of USB audio class compliant audio interfaces (no separate driver installation needed) are also required to run the CoreAudio2ASIO patch which is available on the download page of supported products. In this article, you'll find a workaround for some older unsupported programs.

Please note that all products released later than this article has been created or with a higher version number should automatically be Mac OS X Mavericks compatible. Those products won't be listed here anymore. For details, please always refer to the system requirements on the corresponding product pages on our website.
Older products not listed are not compatible with Mac OS X Mavericks.
