UR824 and Mavericks


Does anybody knwos if the UR824 drivers are compatible with Apple’s new OS, Mavericks? I need some features it includes, but wouldn’t want to lose the audio. Is someone volunteering to try it?


As you may know, Apple’s Mac OS X 10.9 has just been released. Currently we are testing all Steinberg products for OS X 10.9 compatibility. The testing is still going on, so we cannot provide you with the final results.

However, what is known so far is that all Steinberg software products (except for Cubase LE / AI / Elements 7.0.6) are affected by an issue with the CoreAudio2ASIO component when using audio hardware in class-compliant mode which may lead to dangerous digital noise. Some Steinberg hardware products need to be updated as well to ensure full compatibility with the new OS X version. We therefore recommend you not to upgrade to OS X 10.9 yet.*

We are already working on updates for affected products in order to make them available as soon as possible. We will keep you up to date. Please continue to visit http://www.steinberg.net for news and updates.

*In case you are using Cubase 7 and want to update to OS X 10.9 anyway, please make sure to deactivate the “Display have separate Spaces” option in the Mission Control Preferences.

The official line is to wait and I would recommend you do what the men in black say.
However just a note from my experience.
I have a UR28m which isnt so different to what you have and i’ve noticed no over whelming issues thus far.

Thank you very much to both of you for your answer. I’m happy to know that the UR28m is working fine. I wonder if that “class-compliant mode” means that if you use the UR in regular mode (not the new CC mode) it should work fine, as reported by Harry.
