I am wanting to know if I can just download U.C1.7.1 on a new mac with mavericks system? I know I had to install one download before I could upgrade in Snow Leopard 10.6.8 . Also I found out that the new MacBook doesn't use FireWire 400 so I'll need an adapter . Can anyone advise me of any problems I might have before I get the new Mac Book ? I need to make a smooth as possible transition and hoping I can still use my old MacBook as a backup.
THANKS !

goodmorning Randy check first that the thunderbolt is the first generation,cause if it's a brand new macbook it has the thunderbolt 2 port installed,not combatible yet...

Thanks Dennis,
This is a new MacBook I'm looking at it has a FireWire 800 and Ethernet for my AirPort Extreme, even has built in disk burners. I'll just need to get a 800 to 400 adapter for the MacBook to the Presonus. I've just heard so much about problems with Logic Pro X and Mavericks. So I can just load Universal control 1.7 without any pre- installs and I guess it's the same with Capture. I was kinda Leary about getting a new MacBook with Mavericks if I was going to have a bunch of problems.

hey Randy my SL came with 2 firewire cables one 400to400 and one 400to800 so you wont need the adapter,i thought that they stopped selling macbooks with firewire,only thunderbolt
is it really a new model?

They still have some 13" with FireWire 800 port and a Ethernet port. I bought my studio live about 3 years ago, but don't remember getting 400 to 800 FireWire adapter. My main concern is making sure I won't have any problems downloading UC 1.7.2 and capture on mavericks without any problems. It's going to be strange to be working on a 13". Eyesight is not as good as it used to be.

i think that there is an update for the Mavericks and a fellow member here mentioned it fixed the problems with the firewire interfaces,well you can get a second monitor at least for working at home
