M-Audio has been actively testing all applicable hardware and software products with each beta release of macOS 13 Ventura. We understand how important it is for all our users to know exactly what works before they make the jump on any new updates. Please refer to this article for all M-Audio hardware and software compatibility with macOS 13 Ventura.
For this reason, we encourage all our dedicated M-Audio hardware and software owners to refrain from updating to macOS 13 Ventura until compatibility with the new operating system can be confirmed.
This page will be updated regularly to reflect any updates to product compatibility as testing is completed. We encourage all our users to remain on their current OS until all necessary hardware and software products have been qualified for support.
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.
