Sorry to start a fresh thread.
As I posted in the other thread, I'm having problems with getting the VC to work with a late-2013 MBP. I'm running OS 5.0.7 on Mavericks. I've used the Virus for over 6 years and am aware of most of the USB and sync problems.
I initially thought, the problem could be due to the USB Bus power. To confirm, VC does not open at all, when connected to the ports on my non-thunderbolt Apple Display. I finally plugged it straight into the MBP.
Now, while VC starts up with the direct connection, I can barely play the keyboard. It works fine when I use another controller or on-screen keyboards to play it. But, on the Virus itself, notes get stuck every 3 or 4 strikes (only happens when connected via VC). Only other device connected is the Interface and a keyboard. I also, strangely always need to switch Local to ON for it to even function, while using VC.
Solutions I've tried:
- Restarting the computer
- Restarting the Virus (un-plug method)
- Re-installing the software
- Different USB Cables, USB ports
My last option is to pick up a USB hub dedicated to the Virus. I'm not sure if this would work. For me, previously, it sometimes worked having a hub and at other times I had to connect it directly.
Access, is this a Mavericks only issue? I can't seem to figure out how to fix this. The laptop has 2 USB ports. I at least need to connect 4 devices (Interface, Maschine, Controller and the Virus). Would hate it, if the after picking up the Hub, I get the Audio/MIDI driver fail issue.
