I am using a 2008 Mac Pro, running on MacOS 10.13.6 (“High Sierra”), which is connected via USB to a Focusrite Scarlett 18i30 (third generation) audio interface. I used to use a PC, but changed to a Mac earlier this year. For a while, I worked in another DAW, but needed to be able to use Cubase and WaveLab again (I have Cubase 6.5.5 and WaveLab 7.2.1), so I re-installed them. Upon reinstallation, Cubase did function, but WaveLab would only come up, and allow me to load a file, but as soon as I hit “Play”, I would get this little round icon that looks like the “radiation hazard” symbol, and then a messagebox would pop up saying, “Audio streaming configuration incorrect. Reset in Options/Audio Streaming Settings”. The cursor would not move, and no matter what I’ve tried, I can’t get it to play with my Focusrite Scarlett interface (default for my system). Now Cubase doesn’t output any audio to Stereo Out as well.
I have tried reloading both apps, getting the latest Focusrite Control version, updating the firmware in my interface, updating my eLicenser, and making an Aggregate Device in the Mac’s MIDI Audio Settings applet. When I set this in WaveLab, it did play audio, but the sound was rough and distorted. That’s where I have left things for now, till I can get it straightened out.
Curiously, every other audio app and DAW works perfectly, but those two don’t. That’s all that’s wrong.
I certainly appreciate any suggestions to get my system working properly.
