Here's a shell script that removes all VSL installation files in OS X 10.7-10.10

It's based on the forum instructions: ... on-my-Mac-

#--- Script Start ---

sudo echo "Removing AudioBox VSL..."
sudo rm -Rv "/Applications/AudioBox"
sudo rm -Rv "/Library/Application Support/PreSonus"
sudo rm -Rv "/System/Library/Extensions/PreSonus_AudioBox_VSL.kext"
sudo rm -Rv "/System/Library/Extensions/PreSonus_AudioBox_VSLdsp.kext"
sudo rm -Rv ~/Library/Preferences/PreSonus
sudo rm -Rv ""
sudo rm -Rv "com.presonus.abvsl.plist"
sudo rm -Rv ""
sudo rm -Rv "com.presonus.driver.audiobox.vsl.KernelDriver.plist"
sudo rm -Rv ""
sudo rm -Rv "com.presonus.driver.audiobox.vsldsp.KernelDriver.plist"

Now this should be a sticky and included in the FAQ page.

I've had to run through all those folders manually so many times before, this is nice to have it automated.

Thanks for that, on behalf of all those who need to do so.

I was having the usual problems with updating 1818vsl firmware while running Yosemite 10.10. Nothing worked and no helpful info was offered. Here is what I did and it works. I got audio playback through mains and monitors, AudioBox is up and running, and I am recording.

1. I removed the app from my Finder and put in in the trash. Emptied the trash.
2. I downloaded firmware for the 44 and it updated correctly.
3. Turned on my 1818vsl and away I go.

How do I run this script in El Capitan? Do I just paste it into command line?

I was able to get the shell script to run and it said it was removing the VSL components. My VSL is still not showing up as a USB device on this Mac but shows up on others. Any tips on completely removing the software?

With the release of UC 1.8 series software found on the AudioBox VSL download page, you will find a new Uninstaller in the OS X DMG package as a separate executable next to the installer.

The uninstaller will remove all AudioBox VSL software in a few seconds. A restart is required.
