UR22 no longer being detected by Catalina Macbook

Post by mrjimface »


Apologies if this has already been tackled elsewhere, this is my first time posting. I searched this forum for this issue, and while I see related issues I've been unable to find a resolution.

I have an old macbook 2012, but have recently wiped and upgraded it to Catalina. It's running great, good speed, almost like new. Previously it ran my UR22 for years, no problems.

Now my UR22 no longer is being detected. I downloaded the driver from this link: https://www.steinberg.net/en/support/do ... _ur22.html
and reinstalled it. No luck. Did this twice.

Garageband says it recognizes a MIDI device when the UR22 is plugged in but I can't get any sound regardless of setting. The audio preferences for the macbook itself are not recognizing the UR22.

The UR22 itself is on, with the USB light blinking.

Admittedly, it's been a while since I tried to connect and use this gear, so I may just be so rusty I can't remember how to use it properly. I feel like my solution is probably a simple one but I'm just flummoxed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try going Library>Preferences>Audio and delete the 2 preferences there. Solved this issue for me.
iMac using 10.15.6; Cubase 10.5; Metric Halo ULN-8 and Steinberg UR22 audio interfaces.
