Hi everyone,

I have an issue since I updated my macbook pro to mojave. I have two Firestudio Project chained and it worked perfectly until the update. Now the master out and the phone output are working fine but none of the "in" are working. I use ableton live with synths and I don't get any sound from them. I un-installed the driver and double checked my settings in ableton but nothing is happening.

Does anyone have tip for me before I restore my mac to high sierra (which would be quite annoying)?

Thank you very much for your help!!!

I have the same issue.

Firestudio Mobile => FW400 => adapter => Thunderbolt on a MacBook Pro running 10..14.1

Worked flawlessly 2 days ago in a studio, came home, Na not gonna work.

Tested it on my iMac under 10.11 and FW400 - perfect. I don't think my adapter is faulty as the unit lights up but the synching is not happening.

I've submitted a request to the Tech people but nothing back as yet. Sick of un-installing, fiddling with the Library, re-installing, rebooting, trying earlier version of UC - all to no avail. C'mon guys, I've got work waiting!

After upgrading to Mojave and installing UC 1.7.6, my Firestudio Projects (I have 2 daisy-chained) failed to connect. I fixed by enabling TC Applied Technologies kernel extension, as described here.

Hi everyone,

I also have two daisy-chained firestudio, I don't really know why but now it's working again, maybe it did an additional update, this is a mystery :).

I will just think twice next time there is an OS update. If yours is still not working lancedixon, I would try what stuartstern suggests.

All the best and thank you very much for taking the time to answer me!
