M-Audio has been actively testing all applicable hardware and software products with each beta release of macOS 12 Monterey. We understand how important it is for all our users to know exactly what works before they make the jump on any new updates.

We encourage all our users to remain on their current OS until all necessary hardware and software products have been qualified for use with the macOS Monterey operating system. 

Please refer to this article for all M-Audio hardware and software compatibility with macOS 12 Monterey. This page will be updated regularly to reflect any changes to product compatibility as testing is completed.





macOS 12 Monterey Hardware Support

All compatibility testing for macOS Monterey is performed on Intel and base-level M1 processors. M1 Pro and M1 Max processors are still in testing and should be considered not supported until further notice. Hardware support confirms testing passed for USB connection, as well as audio and/or MIDI communication.

Any product not listed below is not considered to be supported with macOS 12 Monterey systems or M1 Processors at this time.

Software Partners

Many of our products are dependent on software for all functionality and control while the device is connected to a computer. Our products may be considered "supported" for an operating system, but will not be functional until software support is also available. It is crucial that you confirm software compatibility before choosing to update your system.

Please check with the developers for your preferred software titles for the latest in macOS 12 Monterey compatibility before choosing to update. We've listed a few key titles below for your convenience. Browser-based tutorial software such as Melodics, Skoove, and TakeLessons are not affected.


How do I prevent my system from updating automatically?

Please be sure to check that your operating system is not enabled to update itself automatically. While this can be a useful feature for some, anyone that relies on the stability of their software and hardware tools should prefer control over which base operating system is installed on their system. Automatic updates will not account for software compatibility before updating which could lead to problems with stability and other functionality if your gear is not ready for the changes in the operating system.

To avoid any delays or downtime, it's best to be deliberate with the decision to update and use the opportunity to check that all your software and hardware tools will be compatible before making the jump. To turn off automatic updates for macOS, please do the following:

1) Navigate to System Preferences > Software Update
2) Uncheck the box next to Automatically keep my Mac up to date
