Yes, I know, Presonus will not spend any more time porting legacy drivers to the latest OS release, and that is fair game.

Has anyone taken the plunge to see if the most recent Firestudio 2626 drivers work with Mavericks?


Cheers,

All working ok on my spare mac, don't see why Presonus couldn't, as a good will gesture, release a supported version of the drivers etc as they have worked fine through Mountain Lion as well. There is obviously not a lot of work needed as they are as solid as on Snow Leopard!

No mention of the 2626 in this post. Can people verify that the 2626 is working after the update and please state what model Mac your using. I don't want to either have to rollback or buy a new interface. I have a funny feeling that it won't work and I will be buying a new interface soon. =(

Working fine on a Hackintosh. It's on a spare HD for testing, which I'd encourage so you don't break anything.

Yeah, I know that. I bought it 3 months before they discontinued it which was a horrible and regrettable mistake on my part. So far we have it working on a Hackintosh and an unknown Mac? Anyone else?

Unfortunately, that can happen whenever you buy ANY product from ANY manufacturer at ANY time.
Which is one of many reasons I prefer to buy used gear.

You are absolutely correct, but still stings. However I have 2009 iMac and if it is working on a 2009 Mac Pro I think I am going to try it and see. I will report back with my results.

EDIT: It works fine in 10.9!

I installed Mavericks (shouldn't have) but I did and now my Presonus FP10 will not power up when I turn my computer on. Is anyone having this problem. Please help someone?

Im on a brand new (Haswell) late 2013 15" macbook pro with ableton and I'm getting super glitchy/poppy audio in Mavericks, also the Audiobox VSL app won't even open. Please respond if you guys are having the same problem. Can't even downgrade this laptop to Mountain Lion so I can play my set.

I am having a problem with the Firestudio 2626 after upgrading to Mavericks. When I pan to the right side I lose all volume, but the tracks play full volume in both monitors when I'm panned hard left or center. I tried this in Logic and in Garageband and had the same problem. It's definitely a problem with the interface. Unfortunately there is no new driver update and I'm not sure that there ever will be one because the product is discontinued. It sucks because now this interface is completely useless for mixing now. It still tracks in stereo, but the only way I can mix is by using the built in output of my computer and some headphones. So annoying. Anyone else having this problem? Any ideas on how to fix it?

I did the Mavericks update and now my FP-10 no longer works. Can someone please fill me in if it is safe to reinstall Lion in the hope of getting my FP-10 recording gear back to normal and working again? I am working with a Mac Mini . any help here would be so appreciated .

it is a bit of a poor show, these units cost a lot of money, the resources to enable the FS26226 to work properly with Mavericks are all in place, there is nothing to replace this unit with regards to the functionality unit offers, yet Presonus refuse to preform the (relatively simple, given that the expertise is in house and employed already) simple task of updating its drivers??

Is it really that hard or is it all about planned obsolescence? C'mon, the unit works on most macs, mine included, I can't imagine one GOOD reason as to why updates are not being issued!

Contrary to some sort of adopted opinion (generally because manufacturers say so!!), it is not satisfactory that units are made obsolete by time marching onwards it's about time companies like Presonus actually supported their products rather than sloping their shoulders every time an upgrade comes along, its been an excuse for too long now.....are you experts in your field dedicated to getting the most out of your product or are you just lazy?

Pathetic customer service.
