Dear PreSonus users,

Has anyone in studio land managed to find a way to use a Presonus Audiobox 22VSL with a Mac running Logic X on OS 10.14.6?

I have tried my laptop as well and it does not appear on Audio Midi manager or in Universal Control. I tried all versions on Universal Control but nothing works.

I think this interface will become a doorstop or will appear on The Gadget Show on Channel 5's wall of defunct tech !!!!!  (or failing that in the bin and I will never buy any more Presonus gear)

The AudioBox 22VSL works very well with 10.14.6. 

Check your USB Cable to make sure it's still good. If your Mac is using a USB-C connection, consider putting a USB Hub between the computer and the interface to make sure it's getting proper power. 

If you're looking for the VSL software that originally came with it, VSL software was discontinued for the AudioBox VSL Series when Apple made changes to Core Audio. 

The AudioBox VSL will still work albeit without the VSL software.
