Using a Scarlett Interface on OS X 10.9 Mavericks

Some users have reported experiencing audio glitches and drop outs with the Scarlett range of interfaces since updating to OS X 10.9 Mavericks. If you are experiencing these problems with your interface, it is possible to utilise Apple’s USB audio driver by downloading and running the class compliant mode application below, while we investigate further.

Please note: After the class compliant mode application has been unzipped, please right click on the application and choose "Open". If you do not do this you may get an error message from the Apple Gatekeeper service.

Users of Scarlett Mix Control (6i6, 8i6, 18i6, 18i8 and 18i20)

Please download and install the latest version of Scarlett Mix Control from our downloads page before running the class compliant mode application below.
