Hello. I am a newbie.
Today I bought a Steinberg UR44 and some mics as a podcasting upgrade.
I have a few problems connecting the UR44 to my Macbook Air.
First, it doesn’t work unless the “CC Mode” switch is ON. I thought it could be OFF when connecting to a computer.
Second, when I do connect (with CC Mode ON) things start off ok. “Steinberg UR44” appears in the Input list in System Preferneces Preferences > Sound, and also in Audio Midi Setup. BUT, as soon as a open Garage Band, the Steinberg UR44 DISAPPEARS from the Sound input list (and Audio Midi Setup)! At this point I cannot select the UR44 as an input because the system doesn’t see it any more. I don’t understand why this happens.
In summary, the system “sees” the UR44 after I plug it in. But as soon as I open Garage Band (or the Cubase software), it no longer is visible from Mac as an input, and visually disappears from the Input list in System Preferneces Preferences > Sound.
Does anyone know what’s going on?
