USB Midi Controller with OS 10.12.3

Hello! I recently updated to Mac OS 10.12.3, and lost support form my M-Audio Keystation 61es. I see that it is listed on the supported devices list, but it seems not to be actually working. Is there a workaround I am not aware of for this, or do you have any idea when it might be supported?

  • Hey Clayton,

    Thanks for posting!

    The Keystation 61es is a class compliant device so it will not require a manually installed driver to connect to your computer. It will act as a plug and play device with your operating system.

    If you are having trouble connecting your Keystation, I would recommend trying a New Configuration in Audio MIDI Setup.

    To do this, open Audio MIDI Setup on your computer. Select Window at the top of the screen and select Show MIDI Studio from that menu. The window that appears will show currently and previously connected MIDI devices. There is a Configuration option you can select to create a new configuration. Your computer will prompt you to name it - you can name this anything you like. Can you input MIDI with the new configuration?

    Another way to test the transmission of MIDI data is to use a free software, MIDI Monitor:

    snoize: MIDI Monitor

    Does MIDI data appear in the input monitor window?

    If you're still having trouble connecting, you can also have a look at this knowledge base article regarding troubleshooting class compliant USB devices:

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
