The first two articles are of no use for you, because the AR16 has no FireWire/Thunderbolt on board, but USB 2.0. Therefore it is of no use to install AI/FireWire drivers. You need to connect mixer and computer by USB. Isn't everything described in the manual?

I have the same problem with my AR16.  Mac OS 10.11.6 not seeing the mixer. Universal Control not seeing the mixer. Reinstalled and restarted several times. Submitted a ticket and hoping to get it sorted out.

Any luck figuring it out on your end?

Having same problem with Ar12.  Worked fine when I first hooked it up.  Recorded a test and then it was gone.  I have a Mac and PC and the mixer is not even being seen on the usb bus by either computer.  Sending back unit if there is no answer from tech support soon.
