Burl Mothership+MadiFaceXT+Apple= dropouts?

Hi, I have a Madi Burl B80 and have been having problems with my MacBook Pro. In the past we have used an older Mac Book with the RME Madiface XT as USB/Madi interface. It turns out that my own MacBook, as well as those of my clients, experience tons of of dropouts and clicks when connected to the same MadiFace, which makes the Burl unusable to anybody with an Apple computer newer than 2012 and/or with new operating systems. When I researched it, apparently there is a known issue with the MadiFace and recent Apple OS, which is entirely on Apple's end, and they have neglected to fix it (this happens so often ).

My question is: do any of you Burl users have a Madi setup and a newish Apple computer? How did you set it up?

I'd hate for my Mothership to be another Apple casualty and for me to have to replace the motherboard. My Korg MR1000 connection and the USB output on my old Mytek Manhattan I were both rendered useless by Apple updates.
