Try this command:

sysctl hw.usb.uaudio.default_channels=6

Then replug your device.

Does it work?

You can also set this in:


I think the problem is that that your device is having a lot of channels, and 
should really be using High Speed USB. The device might not work correctly 
when connected through a High Speed HUB. Connect it directly to your PC/MAC!


                switch (usbd_get_speed(udev)) {
                case USB_SPEED_LOW:
                case USB_SPEED_FULL:
                        * Due to high bandwidth usage and problems
                        * with HIGH-speed split transactions we
                        * disable surround setups on FULL-speed USB
                        * by default
                        channels = 2;
                        channels = 16;
