Topic: Apple M1 Max + Fireface UFX+ macOS Monterey driver not loading

I've been using my Fireface UFX+ for years without any issues in Windows and Mac with intel chips but now I have an issue after latest Monterey update.

Basically I can't get the driver to load no matter what.

I have tried deleting all kext-consent entries


and manually added the team identifier


but still no luck

macOS Monterey Version 12.4

Fireface UFX+:

Software version 46

Re: Apple M1 Max + Fireface UFX+ macOS Monterey driver not loading

I've always had issues finding posts related to Fireface UFX+ I think it should have it's own category.

I've learnt that its product it's under MADI/AES premium line, don't know why hmm but anyway the solution was in this post


I had to update the firmware first and install the thunderbolt beta drivers and it works now!
