I run this product with Logic on the Mac and I've noticed that the software can be a bit temperamental upon booting it up as it appears to depend on which software you launch and in what order i.e. I'd recommend launching Logic then launching the hardware which should auto-launch the drivers then finally launching the pre-amp software package but find an order which suits.

Notwithstanding, once up and running a great product.
