Scarlett 2i2 studio (1st gen) ASIO not working mac

Hey guys,

I have been using 2i2 for recording in the past year. When I started using it again these few days, I am not able to record either vst instrument or audio from the 2i2. If i click record for audio, a message pops up saying “Recording error: ASIO not working”. I know that the 2i2 works ok coz i can hear sound from the computer, but not when connected to cubase.

I have did some research about this problem, knowing that for windows there is a program called ASIO4ALL to fix this problem, but how about mac? I heard it doesn’t requires driver…but it’s obviously not working… anyways I am sure that i have the cables, bus, connections right. Anyone can help me on this issue?

Thanks in advance~

I’m no Mac expert but…

You might want to reinstall your driver again.

If that doesn’t work try using the “class compliant application” which can be found here:
