Shortboard Mkii With New Macbook Pro And Mavericks - Connection Issue

Recommended Posts



I have been using an Shortboard mkii with Snow Leopard on my 2007 MacBook Pro to control Ableton Live for about a year.  I have recently upgraded to a new MacBook Pro running Mavericks.


To get the Shortboard to function properly, I have to plug it in to the USB AFTER the Mac has booted THEN run Monkey.  If I don't do this, Live 9 sees the Shortboard but won't receive messages from it.  Weird - never had to do that on my old setup.


According to Monkey, I have the latest firmware and software.  The Shortboard is being plugged directly into one of the Mac's USB ports - I am also using a USB keyboard controller and a USB Korg Nano Kontrol but these never caused problems with my Shortboard on my old setup.


Any one else having this issue?


Any thoughts would be much appreciated.


Many thanks,
