Digi 003 Drivers For Mac Yosemite

I have been using my Digi 002 Rack (via firewire) with Logic Pro X - Mind you, this is only for a day, but so far everything is working great.


You should go to the avid web site and do a search for 002 drivers and this should get you a link to the download page.


I downloaded and installed the latest which is version 11.0.0. and this will give you 'Avid 002/003 Family' icon in the system preferences.


Edit - I am using a Mac Pro Tower so I can't speak to the latest iMac, but a thunderbolt to firewire adapter should do the trick in that case. As a precaution you could install the latest 002/003 drivers and make sure you can access the device that way before dropping the money for Logic.

Digidesign CoreAudio Driver Q & A

Q: Does the Digidesign CoreAudio driver support simultaneous use of multiple client applications?
A: Yes. Beginning with version 6.5 and higher, the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver supports multiple CoreAudio clients. You no longer have to quit a CoreAudio application before working with another.

Q: Can I use Pro Tools in tandem with other CoreAudio applications?
A:
No. Pro Tools requires exclusive access to Digidesign hardware and thus it cannot be used simultaneously with other CoreAudio applications. You will have to quit Pro Tools before using other CoreAudio programs, or vice versa.

Q: Why can't I hear my Mac system sounds through my Digidesign hardware using the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver?
A:
The Digidesign CoreAudio Driver for Mac OS X does not support playback of system sounds. Your Mac system sounds will continue to be available through your Mac speaker and regular Mac line out.

Q: Why doesn't the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver for OS X allow the volume output or input to be adjusted in the OS X Sound Preference Panel? The volume sliders are greyed out.
A:
This is correct behavior. The Digidesign CoreAudio Driver does not support this function. Playback volume adjustments can be made within the Digi CoreAudio Manager application.

Q: Will Pro Tools 24 MIX, Pro Tools 24, Digi 001, or Audiomedia III hardware work? I can't find them listed under supported systems.
A:
Pro Tools 24 MIX, Pro Tools 24 (d24 card), Digi 001, and Audiomedia III hardware have not been tested with Mac OS X 10.4, and there is no version of Pro Tools for Mac OS X 10.4 that supports this hardware. While you can try the Digidesign CoreAudo Driver with these discontinued systems, they may not work.

Q: What about compatibility with Mac OS X 10.3 'Panther' and 10.2.x 'Jaguar', with or without Pro Tools installed?
A:
The Digidesign CoreAudio Driver for Mac OS X 10.4 'Tiger' has not been tested with Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.2. We recommend that you use the correct version of the driver for your version of Mac OS X.

The Digidesign CoreAudio driver version 6.9 for Mac OS X 10.3.x can be downloaded here:

The Digidesign CoreAudio driver version 6.1.2 for Mac OS X 10.2.x can be downloaded here:

Q: What OS X applications work with the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver v7.0?
A:
With a few possible exceptions, any CoreAudio-compatible application will work with the Digidesign CoreAudio driver. The following third-party CoreAudio-compatible client applications have been tested with the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver v7.0:

Pc inspector file recovery free download - VirtualLab Data Recovery, MiniTool Mac Data Recovery, Boomerang Data Recovery, and many more programs.

  • Apple Quicktime 7.x
  • RealOne 10.x
  • Roxio Toast with Jam 6.x

See the CoreAudio Read Me (42 included with download) for additional information and known issues.

Q: How can you avoid distortion and audio sync errors when using Logic Audio with the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver?
A:
In our testing, we found that Logic will not play audio properly through the CoreAudio driver until you go into the driver preferences, and manually reset the buffer size to another setting (it defaults to 512, and it can be switched back to 512, but it needs to be set to another value first). if you don't do this, Logic plays the file back with distortion and you will eventually get an audio sync error. Once you've manually changed the buffer size, this problem goes away.

Q: How do you configure Roxio Toast or Jam to use the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver?
A:
In Roxio Toast 5.2 or Jam 5.01, set the Sound Out to Mac OS X Audio HAL. Jam v6 allows either Mac OS X Audio HAL or Digidesign HW. Toast v6 will automatically default to whichever hardware is selected in the Sound control panel.

Q: Is there still an 'opt-in' list?
A:
No. Because of its ability to work with multiple clients, the Digidesign CoreAudio driver no longer requires an 'opt-in' list. To exclude applications from access to the Digidesign CoreAudio driver, press and hold down the Shift key when lanching an application. Please see the Digidesign CoreAudio usage guide for more information.

Q: What are the limitations of the Digidesign CoreAudio Driver?
A:
As listed in the Digidesign CoreAudio Read Me:

  • The multi-client CoreAudio Driver cannot be used to preview sound files in Macintosh Finder. When you view a sound file Mac OS X Finder window with files displayed by columns, a preview bar is displayed next to it. This preview bar lets you audition the sound file. The sound will always play back though the Macintosh’s built-in audio controller (through the Macintosh’s speaker or headphone jack). However, if you double-click a sound file, the QuickTime application will launch, and can use the multi-client Digidesign CoreAudio Driver for playback.
  • The multi-client Digidesign CoreAudio Driver cannot be used for playback of System Sounds.
