  1. Finally installed gearbox on High Sierra... And it's working 100% Here's what I did. Download Gearbox 3.72 DMG Double click on the DMG package VIEW PACKAGE CONTENTS by: Right clicking on the Package Icon Left clicking 'View Package Contents' Double Click on Contents Double Click on Packages FOR EACH PACKAGE: Right Click the package and Select open. This will run the installer for the individual package Some packages may not install properly, but don't worry... NOW CHECK THAT EACH PACKAGE INSTALLED CORRECTLY For each Package: Right Click and view package contents (see above) Navigate to the folder /Content/Resources/english.lprog/ Double click on the file the ends with .info This should open as a text file. In the text file will be information about where the contents of the package were supposed to be installed. Make a note of the location Navigate to the folder /Content/Resources/ and double click on the .gz file Copy the extracted file Navigate to the target location you made a note of above If the file isn't there, paste it to that location Reboot the machine Open Monkey, and get and the latest driver. After you install the latest driver, make sure Monkey can see your POD. Open System Preferences: Under Security and Privacy General tab, if there is an exception for the line 6 package, click to allow it Make sure the Line 6 Audio Midi Tab is also there Now you should be good to go... The biggest problem I had initially was Gearbox saying that the driver for the X3 was incompatible or something like that... It turns out that the Gearbox uses 2 drivers... The first is the MIDI driver, which its happy to use the latest and greatest downloaded via Monkey. The second is the Audio Driver... The Audio driver was one of the things that didn't install properly when I installed each package... Someone else may want to make a more concise set of instructions... I spent a while messing with this... The really neat thing though are the .info files because they tell you what is supposed to be installed and where. Oh and if you can't see the Library folder(s) you may need to right click in finder and tell it to let you see it... Or you might have to do something at the Command Prompt... I am pretty sure I enables all of that on my MAC way back, and I can't remember exactly how you do it.

  4. GEARBOX WORKING IN HIGH SIERRA 10.13.3 Ok... I have it working in High Sierra 10.13.3 Follow the the other SHOW PACKAGE CONTENTS install instructions I posted way back when... Some things won't install... Like the Audio Driver, which is different from the midi driver. Without it Gearbox throws an 'incompatible driver error' and won't let you edit tones. I attached the file you need... You need to extract this and place it in SYSTEM/LIBRARY/EXTENSIONS. Once you have that, missing driver error goes away and you can edit tones... WooHoo... BTW... In my original Post way back when, when I talked about right clicking and selecting SHOW PACKAGE CONTENTS for the installer and installing each package individually... You can do the same for each of the individual packages... Then you can look at the individual files.... Each package has a resources folder,... Inside the resources folder there's a folder call English.lproj. Inside that there's a .info file... If you open that with text/edit it tells you what is supposed to be installed and where its supposed to go Line6Audio.kext.zip
  5. Lots of users have been disappointed about the death of GearBox with Yosemite... Me too, but after hours of messing around I managed to install and run it successfully! The problem that I and others experienced is that the installer package will not allow installation on the MAC HDD... I think it's a versioning issue (i.e. the version number for Yosemite is not recognized by the installer). Anyway I found a fairly simple workaround... The solution is a follows: Download and open Gearbox 3.72.dmg Right click the GearBox.mpkg icon Left click 'Show Package Contents' Double click 'Contents' folder Double click 'Packages' folder You should now see 10 individual packages... Install each one Note: If you previously installed other Line 6 software with a newer driver, it will not allow you to install the drivers in this package... You will need to uninstall the newer drivers first, then you should be good to go. Search the forum for details on how to uninstall the drivers using command prompt. Someone else posted instructions on how to do this... They also suggested another driver to use... I tried to install that one first and it wouldn't let me, so I ended up installing the drivers from the from the GearBox package above... Anyway, I am running Yosemite 10.10.1 on a MacBook Pro Retina, with a POD X3 Live, and so far it is working fine... No panic attacks... I was able to create and upload a tone to one of my user presets... By the way, before this, I did update the firmware on the X3 using a a separate version of Monkey that I had downloaded previously. I am not sure if this have any relevance with regard to MAC and the X3 playing nicely together once I reinstalled the old drivers.

    Gearbox Is Dead, What A Shame.

    GEARBOX IS ALIVE AGAIN! So I got the Gearbox partially working on Yosemite yesterday... Today I think I managed to get it working all the way.

    Gearbox on Yosemite?

    I was able to install Gearbox on Yosemite.... Here's how. I started by downloading and installing Monkey. Next updated the drivers and firmware for the for my X3 Live. Monkey was able to establish s connection with the X3 I downloaded the latest Gearbox install package. Instead of running the install I right clicked and browsed through the contents of the installer. I then installed just the Gearbox application and it installed without problems Interestingly, when I ran gear box it recognized the X3 but said it was ignoring it because the driver was incompatible, however, it appeared to download all the presets. I am new to Gearbox... I have yet to see if I can add a new sound to my X3... It looks promising though!
