I have a Mac mini 2018 and the latest Big Sur operating system. But PT doesn’t see my Box 6, and no signal midi or audio is received in the mix window. I have set PT tom receive on bus3-4 as well as chosen the USB midi output on my MOX 6 plus the other requirements in the manual but still no signal.
Getting so frustrated but and would love some help with this problem. I’m sure it’s something simple like I need a driver or something.
Than-you for any help.
Robin

Welcome to the forum.

Indeed, you need a driver - based on your post, the Yamaha Steinberg USB Driver for macOS 11.

See https://usa.yamaha.com/support/updates/yamaha_steinberg_usb_driver_for_mac.html

Thank-you for responding...I installed the driver altho the process on Big Sur was straight forward, not the complicated instructions they supplied. Had to unblock ‘Yamaha’ from security cause it blocked it.
But still no input from Mox to Daw.  Mox never comes up in Audio Devices or Playback engine.
Any other thoughts?

Thx, Robin

The installation should only be “complicated” for Macs with the Apple processor - the 2018 mini has an Intel one.

That sort of situation isn’t uncommon with modern operating systems.

Sorry, I don’t use Pro Tools. Here’s a support article, not recent or specific to your DAW, but it might provide some insight:
http://www.motifator.com/index.php/support/view/mox6_mox8_and_your_computer_a_getting_started_guide

This search…
https://www.google.com/search?&q=Yamaha+Mox+Pro+Tools
...will show up some relevant topics. Note that info for the MOXF should also apply to the MOX.

Otherwise, perhaps a member with Pro Tools experience will post.

GOY IT!
Oh thank-you 5pinDIN.
Needed to download Remote Tools for Mox from American site because Canadian site didn’t have them.
We’re a little behind in the open communications department.
Those other articles from this site were also very helpful.
Thank heavens for this site and for guys like you that continue to help people. I know you have been doing it for years and you do a great service. Much gratitude from this appreciative soul.
