Topic: Release Candidate Mac USB Big Sur 3.26 available
Mac Big Sur Intel/M1 driver 3.26 includes a new installer which no longer causes a fresh Big Sur installation to ask for Rosetta during the driver installation - which actually wasn't required at all. As this installer is quite new we would be happy to get some feedback before we put it on the website.
Of course 3.26 comes with some more changes. TotalMix 1.74 is included which fixes the mic gain control when using the ARC USB with Fireface UC and UCX II. And the Settings dialog no longer forgets Output Options set in the Settings dialog of the UCX II.
As mentioned in the readme, in the latest OS updates Apple has (silently?) fixed the well-known crash of the Touch Bar caused by surprise removal of USB devices. That also affects other USB devices - the surprise removal seems to work well now with some of our interfaces, like the Babyfaces and the UFX+. Others still show strange effects like the unplugged unit is still listed in the system.
Our workaround tries to check for such a state, and when detected to unload the unit from the driver side. That seems to work pretty well, especially when using macOS 11.6, and might even further improve in 11.7.
Thanks for testing!
