    hey guys i have the oxygen8 and it will not work whatsoever with my intel iMac anyone have any suggestions. M-Audio said they released drivers but if you go to the drivers section of their site it just sends u a email for download at a later time.

    Shouldn't need a driver. From the m-audio driver database:

    Open up Audio Midi Setup under Applications>Utilities and make sure the device is listed okay. You may have to set up some midi channels there. Perhaps find the pdf manual for the device.

    I have an oxygen 8 and a radium 60something and they Both work perfectly on my MBP..

    You should be fine as it was a simple plug and play situation for me..

    i just bought the trigger finger for my intel imac, and it is not detected at all. it gets power, works on my pc with no problems, just in osx its not detected. is there a way to install drivers even though the device is supposed to be class compliant?

    if possible, try the m-audio axiom 25/49/etc as a midi controller instead. it's a much nicer interface and it will work with your intel mac :)
    gotta love the plug and play!

    This is my question as well...

    I have an old M-Audio Keyboard (not class compliant) and I've downloaded the new drivers from the M-Audio website, but still haven't had any luck getting my new MacBook to recognize the keyboard.

    I know that there are better (and more recent) controllers out there, but I'd rather not have to purchase another controller, if I can get this one to work.

    Any thoughts, help etc?

    The Novation SL25 is an amazing piece of kit for the money, and works flawlessly with intel Macs.
