[UPDATE 2] Public beta for Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver for macOS

Hello everyone,

UPDATE - January 26, 2024
V4.0.2b to 4.0.3b
Now supports Steinberg UR-C V3.0 and the IXO12/IXO22 series.*

Since Apple has already declared that the Kernel Extension will be discontinued in future macOS, we decided to release a public beta of the Yamaha Steinberg USB driver.

The Version V4.0.3b is available only on the Steinberg forum exclusively.
This new driver uses the Driver Extension (System Extension) and not the older Kernel Extension solution anymore. It will prevent that the “Legacy System Extension” warning message appears.

Supported OS: macOS 13 and macOS 14
Supported Platform: Apple silicon (no Intel CPU support)
Supported Models:
AXR4U
IXO12/IXO22
UR22C/UR44C/UR816C/UR24C
UR12/UR22/UR22mkII/UR242/UR44/UR28M/UR824
UR-RT2/UR-RT4

It is no longer necessary to change security settings from recovery mode when installing drivers on a Mac with Apple silicon but allowing the driver in “Security & Privacy” is still required.

Please find here the link to the driver, the installation guide and the release notes.
