- Fixed a problem in which a "Failed to initialize" message appeared on the Mac having no FireWire ports, such as a MacBook Pro with Retina display.
Operation of a n12/n8*1 connected via an Apple MD464 Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter
We have confirmed*2 that audio and MIDI data is correctly transferred by the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver via an Apple MD464 Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter between a n12/n8 and a Mac computer equipped with a Thunderbolt port.
(1) If a Mac computer not equipped with a FireWire port (i.e., a Retina MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or iMac) is started up without the Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter connected, a “Failed to initialize” error message will be displayed. However, the computer will operate normally in such a case.
(2) To prevent the above message from being displayed, connect the Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter before starting up the computer.
(3) If the Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter is disconnected without first powering down the Mac computer, the computer will need to be restarted in order to continue transferring audio and MIDI data using the Yamaha Steinberg FW Driver.
*1: n12/n8 firmware version 1.03, IEEE1394 firmware 1.07.
*2: Operation has been confirmed under test conditions; however, this does not guarantee correct operation in all conceivable situations. Yamaha can accept no liability whatsoever for damages of any kind resulting from use.
