Troubleshooting: must create device as admin user
Authored by: huzzam on Feb 27, '06 01:57:16PM

I couldn't get this to work for a few days. I'd open the editor, make the new device, and it wouldn't show up in any applications. If I quit Audio MIDI Setup & reopened it, the new device was no longer there.

The problem was that I was doing this as a regular user, not an admin. I just finally got it to work by logging in as an admin user, making the device, and logging back in as my regular user. Now the regular user has the aggregate device available.

Do you think that other operations in the Audio Midi Setup CP also require you to be logged in as an Admin? I'm trying to enable the rear outputs to send the audio through while the interface is recording. There are check boxes in the firepod's I/O list, but they are greyed out for me. Haven't tried it as an admin yet, though.

Too bad I could find NADA about this on the Apple or Presonus support site...
