Forte

Works with Yosemite? YES

 

 

 

VRM Box

Works with Yosemite? NO

Points of note : Focusrite VRM Box uses a kernel mode driver to run complex DSP processing effects.  This technique is vulnerable to the changes Apple make with each operating system release.  Those changes have become increasingly difficult to implement to an appropriate standard, as such we have decided not to continue support for VRM Box on OS X Yosemite.

All other Focusrite/Novation USB products use Apple's Core Audio driver, which provides excellent low latency audio and simple "just works" operation.

Note that you can still use VRM Box as a high quality headphone output with the Apple Core Audio driver on Yosemite.
