MOTU and OS X El Capitan
Apple released OS X® El Capitan (version 10.11) this week. MOTU has worked with Apple to ensure current MOTU products are compatible with OS X El Capitan, and to provide a smooth transition for your MOTU products when you upgrade to OS X El Capitan.
Current versions of all MOTU software products and most hardware drivers available at motu.com/download (latest versions) appear to be compatible with El Capitan, although final compatibility testing is still on-going. Please make note, however, of the required driver updates below.
In some cases, MOTU software updates may be available soon to achieve 100% compatibility. Check motu.com frequently for further announcements in the near future.
