    Default Anyone using Native Instruments Audio 8 DJ with MacOS anymore?

    I've run into some strange audio dropouts with the A8DJ that I've owned for years. I see they are no longer supported with MacOS (I'm on Sierra). It seems to fix the problems if I set the resolution of the soundcard to 96k instead of 44.1, but then when I disconnect the A8DJ I get issues with sound output on other devices (unless I reconnect the card and switch the resolution back to 44.1). Does anyone else have this problem?

    Is my only option to upgrade to the A6 or A10, or is there a way to keep using the A8 reliably? I think 96k switch fixes the dropouts but I don't know if I want to rely on this soundcard anymore given that possibility. And I'm not leaning toward buying another NI soundcard; who's to say how long the A10 will be good for?

    Have been using my audio8 on the latest Mac OS X w/ Ableton ok for the most part. Will crash from time to time. Definitely OK for production, but wouldn't take it out to a gig just yet...

    Nope, but they discontinued all of their DJ Interfaces and havent released a new piece of gear in 3 years.

    There was never officially a 'mk2'. they just quietly updated it. The Audio10 product line is dead.

    Thanks for the info, I though they killed support (driver updates) only for the older interfaces (A4,6 & 8).
