    hey everyone, got my 2012 imac a few months ago and its my first experience with any Mac, so I'm still learning the ins and the outs with it.

    I got an emergency babyface interface, and I plugged it into a USB port, but I don't know what to do next. it has power going to it, but I'm used to PCs where you plug in a USB device and it automatically recognizes it and starts installing drivers. I'm also used to using "device manager", but I don't really know the equivalent for that on the Mac. I checked under "utility ", but didn't see my device in there. I appreciate any help, thanks!

    interesting, ill have to try that out when I get home. so the device should have showed up in the utility section on the imac? I dont even know what was supposed to happen when I plugged it in.

    Something else you can try.

    Does it show up in Disk Utility? Does it show as mounted in Disk Utility? There is a MOUNT button in the toolbar of Disk Utility. If it shows UNMOUNT, then it should be connected.

    Have you checked Finder > Preferences > General > Show these items on the Desktop and Finder > Preferences > Sidebar > Devices?

    ok I just checked all of that, and no it wasn't showing up. I also tried resetting and unplugging everything, and it didn't show up then either. The interface came with a driver installation cd, but naturally, these new imacs dont have a disk drive, would maybe downloading the drivers from the site get it to work? I guess i'll give that a shot.

    If you're doing audio work, it's not a good idea to update your OS as soon as it comes out. You need to wait until all your hardware/software companies indicate their stuff is compatible with 10.11

    axisD -

    With the Babyface plugged in and powered on, have you opened "Audio/MIDI setup" to see if it's being "recognized" by the system? On my "music Mac", I keep Audio/MIDI setup right in the dock, for quick access to check.

    Along with the link posted in reply #2 by firedept, another good forum to check out is gearslutz.com.

    You got that right. I had no idea it was the day of the release.
    I'm dead in the water and can't proceed with recording and it basically sucks.

    Anyone know of a work around. Migrations tend to be one way, so backing out to the prior OS might not be an option. If there's an easy fix, I would be happy to hear of it.

    10.11 is breaking audio devices left and right - I installed a test install on an external drive and verified Roland VG-99, Roland RC-300, Midiman Midisport 2x2, M-Audio Fast Track and Alesis I02 are all not functioning. Go back to Yosemite until they get their act together.
