Default Re: Avid Core Audio HD Driver Breaks Maschine in Yosemite

I'm thankful to have a work around for now, but this seems like it should be fixed by now. When can we expect an update to repair this?
There have been threads here about Yosemite and hardware dependent plugins from NI. NI even sent out an email to people in October 2014. Here's what's in the email:

Native Instruments has conducted compatibility tests with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite which have shown current NI products to work without any specific issues under standard installations of this operating system.

However, products with a hardware dependency, such as MASCHINE, KOMPLETE KONTROL, TRAKTOR, GUITAR RIG, and Controller Editor will not launch when the AVID CoreAudioManager/Drivers are installed under 10.10 Yosemite. Native Instruments and Avid are working together to resolve this compatibility issue.

Native Instruments is currently conducting further systematic compatibility and performance tests with the release version of Yosemite, and will provide new information as it becomes available.

Best regards,

The Native Instruments team

As near as I know nothing has been done about this yet. You might want to also check in over at the NI Maschine forum on this as well. This is strictly an Avid or NI problem alone but needs work on the part of both companies.
