Slow down, Mountain Lion early adopters.
Okay, remember how a few weeks ago we made note that a number of audio interfaces weren’t working with USB3 ports on new Apple laptops?
And remember how last week, Native Instruments released a statement about USB 3 issues?
Funny story. It seems that it’s not just new Apple laptops with new USB3 ports suffering from sound problems. Now, Apple’s just-released OS update, 10.8 Mountain Lion, is prompting reports of audio interface problems. As with the new USB3 laptops and OS 10.7, your mileage may vary – some interfaces work, and some don’t. (This isn’t just an NI problem; some other brands have issues, too. And something is going on with Windows drivers, too: PC vendors reported similar issues with USB2 devices connected to USB3 ports that were resolved by connecting to USB2 ports.) [read]
