Customers will be aware that some Xone:DB2 users have encountered USB3.0 audio reliability issues when using the mixer with Retina Macs.
We appreciate that this has been highly frustrating for customers, partly due to the length of time it has taken to resolve the issue, and because of the limited information that Allen & Heath has been able to impart.
We are continuing to explore these issues with Apple and will release further updates as they become available, but in the interim, we can offer a Xone:DB2 v2.2.6 BETA release which improves the audio reliability with USB3.0 and Apple hardware and resolves a MIDI issue specific to certain Retina Macs.
The updated Xone:DB2 BETA Driver and Audio Firmware release for Apple OS X is now available online for download.
Install the new Driver v2.2.6, then upgrade the Audio Firmware to v1.0.4 to improve USB3.0 stability.
This BETA release can be downloaded <here>
More information can be found in the release notes.
