Default M-Audio Fast Track Ultra on El Capitan

Hi,

I just wanted to report that my audio interface is not recognized under Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan (Golden Master) with the latest driver (2.3.3 from Dec. 2014).

I know that this interface is a bit older but are there plans for compatible drivers?
Latest: http://avid.force.com/pkb/articles/d...tra-8R-Drivers

Thanks,
hoss

Hi ,

I would also love to know if and when there will be an El Capitan Driver.
My FT Ultra 8R is like a brick otherwise.

Thanks

I've inquired as to how long devices will continue to receive driver updates. I'll post back when I have that info (it might not be specific to the FTU).

The M-Audio division was sold by Avid and the new M-Audio company is not making the Fast Track interfaces anymore.

I really hope we'll get a driver quickly, I was almost off to my dealer today to pick up a Focusrite Scarlett.

Right, Avid retained the Fast Track devices when they sold M-Audio to InMusic.

RE the Scarlett, I'm quite happy with my 18i20.

I googled a little and it seems there is a general USB Audio problem in El Capitan, many interfaces don't work right now.

I did notice on my Mac/El Capitan GM, under System information - USB , my FastTrack Ultra 8R is listed. So the USB bus does detect the interface but the driver fails.

Same here.

My IK Multimedia StealthPlug works.
