No audio input/output on macOS Mojave

  • Live Versions: 10
  • Operating System: MacOS 10.14

After updating to macOS Mojave, you may receive the following system message when launching Live for the first time: "Ableton Live would like to access the microphone".

Click "Ok" to allow this, otherwise you may experience either or both of the following issues:

  • No audio input (regardless of interface used)
  • No audio output (regardless of interface used)

In case you clicked "Don't Allow" you can still grant access in your Mac's System preferences:

  • System Preferences > Security and Privacy > Privacy > Microphone > Allow Ableton Live 10 access

If you're still having issues after granting Ableton access to the microphone, contact support.
