PreSonus FireStudio (26x26) Now Lion-Compatible
October 30, 2011
PreSonus has released FireControl 2626, a stand-alone application that provides Mac OS X 10.7 Lion compatibility for the original FireStudio (26x26) audio/MIDI interface. With this release, all FireStudio-series interfaces, including discontinued models, are compatible with OS X Lion.
FireControl 2626 is exclusively for the FireStudio (26x26) and OS X Lion; FireStudio users who are running earlier versions of Mac OS X or who are using Microsoft Windows do not need and should not install this release. Users of all other FireStudio-series interfaces and users of StudioLive-series mixers should update to the recently released PreSonus Universal Control 1.5.2, which provides Lion compatibility and other enhancements for those products.
FireControl 2626 allows FireWire daisy-chaining of two FireStudio (26x26) interfaces, and it is possible to chain FireStudio interfaces with other FireStudio-series interfaces by running both FireControl 2626 and Universal Control 1.5.2 simultaneously.
FireControl 2626 and Universal Control 1.5.2 are free downloads and are available immediately from the Downloads section of the PreSonus Web site.
