    Hi all. My setup is a imac mid 2010 21.5, SSD 250GB, 8GB ram, just rebooted and installed Mavericks. The soundcard is a Tascam us1461. Now my soundcard wont work and the drivers on the official site for it are 2010 and thats it. Ive emailed tascam.

    Any advice? Any simular problems?

    Worked fine on lion, leopard etc, really dont want to have to go back to lion. Ive tried all the drivers on the tascam site, the latest one doesnt do anything when I click on the install icon, the other will run and install, but nothing happens. When I run the older ones, the soundcard is actually accepted, driver software installed and comes up, and it shows in the sound properties, I can select it, but the sound still defaults to the imac speakers. I have tried alsorts, restarting etc, so any advice really appreciated here. Thanks

    You need to wait for the vendor to release Mavericks drivers, all their latest set of drivers is for Mountain Lion. I'd suggest contacting them to see if they'll release an ETA on the updated drivers.
