PLEASE HELP CUBASE not seeing my interface

Hello I hope someone could lend a hand. I am so frustrated and I am not sure what is going on with this.
I have been running CUBASE 10 for about 6 months no issues at all. Now all the sudden I am having an issue of cubase seeing my interface.
I am using an Mac OS Catalina a TASCAM model 24 and CUBASE 10Pro.

ISSUE When I start up cubase and I access the studio tab to select the interface/ driver my TASCAM is not listed. I installed the latest FIRMWARE from TASCAM and I updated the driver from the TASCAM website but nothing. The Mac sees that there is a TASCAM 24 but only if I am using as a USB to transfer files ect. Also separate MACBOOK is having the same issue.
WHAT I HAVE TRIED. Reinstalled CUBASE, Installed drivers from tascam, pulled my hair out. Is there something I clicked that makes it unavailable?
Please help me- Robert


Make sure Cubase has enabled Mic in the System Preferences, please.

Open macOS System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Microphone. Enable Cubase here.
