Hackintosh - Focusrite, Apollo, Thunderbolt

I just built my i7-4790K, Z97-UD7, Thunderbolt 2 hackintosh. I'm dual booting Yosemite (10.10.5) and Windows 7. I don't currently have any thunderbolt devices, but I do have Apple's Firewire to Thunderbolt adapter, and I'm using it with my Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 (a firewire interface). So I'm going Saffire into thunderbolt adapter, into Thunderbolt 2 port.

On Windows 7, everything works great. In OS X, sound works through the LS56, but none of the meters in Saffire Control move when audio plays. Has anyone encountered this, or know of a fix?

I've been wanting to get an Apollo, but if I have the same issue of no meters, I might have to reconsider. Do the meters in the Apollo software work on a hackintosh?
