Basically I never use GB because there has always been a confllct of some sort preventing even launching the software. After a recent fresh update to 10.8.2, I'm simply trying to launch GB.


I am greeted by this error window: "Garageband has detected a possible conflict between one or more third party MIDI or audio drivers." Clicking OK, it returns seveal times and then just freezes up, requiring a Force Quit.


I have Cubase installed, but this is recent, no idea if this is a possible cause. Other than that possibility I have no MIDI or other devices installed. It seems odd to me that GB has always proven such a problem with simple launch and use (for me at least), being such a fundamental part of the Mac OS family.


I just repaired permissions because I read this could be a cause, no improvment though.


Any suggestions or guidance is appreciated.



OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)
