My GIO no longer controls play/record in garageband but simply turns the effects pedals on/off. It suddenly stopped working and no matter what I do, reboot etc won’t start working. In addition to the problems (originally) described below when I try play/record it ‘bounces’ on for a second then shuts off as if the switch just cycles on /off . It will not come on and stay on, very frustrating!
Do I just have a defective Unit or are there others in the community experiencing problems with GIO?
What are the reviews on this product? Does it work ( with GarageBand ). My Unit is brand new and I have a new iMac and all the latest software.
I must send this Unit back it it’s defective!!
Please read below my initial problems with the Unit….
My GIO hangs up and no longer responds to Garageband.
Especially if I leave it plugged in. If I leave it plugged in it will jam up other apps.
Upon startup it doesn't respond if I plug it in and press OK in the 2 dialogs. I have to quit garageband and re-open garageband, this cannot be normal.
Expected behavior would be to have the GIO control and respond to garageband if they are both up and running. THis is not the case, I have to plug the GIO Unit in and out and reboot Garageband to get it working. If I leave it for awhile it loses connection as well.
My Software is all current my iMac is new but I haven't done any software updates for the GIO.
It would be good if it worked as it shall. But it does not. I get constant problems with contecting to my Mac Pro - one time it is not switching the patches, one time it is not doing anything etc. And there are permanent cracks in the sound output that are very annoying. This apparently happens to few more people as I read on the net. I ditched it. Next time I will want to waste 400 bucks I find a toilet instead ...
