My Saffire 6 USB interface worked beautifully yesterday, but not today.  I have installed no new updates between then and now.

 

I'm on a MBP, running 10.9 w/ 6.0.6 (428.5).

 

I've got my Saffire 6 plugged into the first USB port (closest to the headphone jack).

 

As soon as I plug it in, I receive prompts ("New Device" and then "Number of Midi Inputs has Changed").

 

Yesterday, I clicked through these prompts and was able to use the Saffire effortlessly.  I monitored through the interface rather than the computer.  It sounded great.

 

Today, I received the same prompts but receive an "Error While Trying to Synchronize Audio and Midi" prompt.  The rest of the prompt says (verbatim): "Sample Rate 9896 Recognized. Check Conflict Between GarageBand and External Device."

 

i should add that the sample rate number is different every time.

 

I have my audio resolution set to "better," just as I did yesterday, when this thing worked with no effort whatsoever.

 

Little help?

    open the Audio MIDI Setup utiity and make sure your interface is set to a 44100 sample rate
