Affected Software: Peak 3 (OSX), Peak 4 (OSX)

  7. Quit Pro Tools
  8. Go into your Applications folder and into the Digidesign folder, and launch the Digidesign Core Audio Manager. Double check that the settings you made in step 2 are still correct. Make any changes to match the settings outlined in step 2.
  9. Launch Peak and go to Audio>Record Settings and click on the Hardware Settings button.
  10. Make sure your input and output options are set to the 001 and click OK.
