Yamaha USB driver update warning

A cautionary tale, these newest Yamaha USB drivers trashed my iMac on Catalina OS with Cubase 10. They locked and froze the rig. I had to re-install the OS to get the computer working again. Immediately uninstalled those drivers and everything is back to normal and working correctly again.



Could you motioned the exact driver version, please?

Not sure, it’s the one that shows in my Cubase 10 menu at start up recommending an update. After crash, I uninstalled it.

After hunting around, it’s version 2.02


I have Macbook Pro with MacOS Catalina 10.5.2 and Yamaha MODX8. I installed he Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver V2.0.2 but there is no sound even when I select the MODX as System Output.

Hi and welcome,

Make sure the driver is allowed in the System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General, please.

Also make sure Cubase is allowed in the System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Microphone, please.
