With the release of Apple's macOS Catalina, every creative professional will need to decide if updating is right for them. More often than not, the initial jump to a new OS will do very little, if anything, to benefit the creative artist. Changes to the OS and improvements in technology are more likely to have a negative effect on your software, hardware, and workflow; at least at first.
Whether you are an Engineer, Musician, DJ, or any other audio-visual professional, the only thing that truly matters is that your gear works and continues to work when you need it the most. Numark has been actively testing our products with each Beta release of macOS Catalina 10.15 and iOS 13 to guarantee our users know exactly what works and what will require updates before they make the jump to the new OS.
Please find a list of our products and their support status below. We encourage everyone to remain on their current OS until all of your products are on this list and confirmed supported. This will be kept updated as necessary to reflect all current support for macOS Catalina 10.15 and iOS 13.
The following products will work with macOS Catalina without any need for additional drivers.
*Editor, utility, and/or firmware updater software for this product have not been qualified for support for use with macOS Catalina. This page will be updated as necessary to reflect all current compatibility with macOS Catalina.
Please be aware: If you do not see your product listed in this article, it is not officially supported for use with macOS Catalina. Compatibility testing is only necessary for products with USB connectivity and therefore does not affect any M-Audio speakers or headphones.

Required: All driver supported products on macOS Catalina will require the user to allow the system extension in the Security & Privacy System Preferences. After installing the driver, the following pop-up will appear to report that the driver extension has been blocked:
To enable the extension and allow the driver, navigate to System Preferences > Security & Privacy. Restart the computer first if this is necessary to complete the driver installation. Under the General tab, look for the "System software from developer "(driver developer)" was blocked from loading."
Click Allow. Follow the prompts to restart the computer if necessary and the device will be recognized normally on startup. It will only be necessary to complete this process once.
