M-Audio has announced its support for Apple's new Intel-based Mac computers, offering new Universal drivers for its complete line of FireWire- and USB-compatible peripherals. The company announced it has posted official drivers for Fast Track USB, Fast Track Pro, MobilePre USB, JamLab, Transit USB, Audiophile USB, FireWire Solo, FireWire Audiophile, FireWire 410, FireWire 1814, ProjectMix I/O, Ozonic, M-Audio Ozone, Oxygen 8, MIDISPORT 2x2, MIDISPORT 1x1, MIDISPORT 4x4, MIDISPORT 2x4 and MIDISPORT 8x8/s. When combined with M-Audio’s collection of class-compliant devices, this driver release brings Intel-based Mac compatibility to all non-PCI M-Audio interfaces and controllers.
"M-Audio has a long history of enabling musicians to take advantage of the latest developments on the Macintosh platform,” says Tim Ryan, M-Audio General Manager. “We are proud to continue our support by offering Universal drivers for a wide selection of USB- and FireWire-based peripherals."
In addition, M-Audio has also converted the Enigma Librarian/Editor over to the Universal binary format, allowing for native execution on Intel-based Macs such as the new MacBook Pro. M-Audio also noted that software partner Ableton has recently released Live 5.2, which delivers immediate native Intel-based Mac computer support to Live users.
M-Audio expects that the rest of its developed and distributed software will be operable on Intel-based Mac computers in the near future.
