Baton Rouge, LA (October 7, 2009)--Now that Apple has begun shipping its Mac OS X 10.6 (better known as Snow Leopard), PreSonus has released a public beta version of its Universal Control 1.1 control-panel software for all FireStudio-series interfaces (including the StudioLive 16.4.2 digital mixer). It is compatible with Apple's new operating system.
"PreSonus has been working closely with Apple to ensure our products are compatible with Snow Leopard," explains chief technology officer Bob Tudor. "New features like aggregate-device support that is built into the operating system are exciting additions for Mac users. We want to ensure that our customers can take advantage of them."
In addition to the Snow Leopard initiative, the PreSonus engineering department is also getting ready for the expected release of Windows 7 this fall. "It's OS season," says Tudor, "and our engineering team is working hard to make the latest technologies available to our customers."
Universal Control 1.1 can be downloaded for free at the Technical Support/Downloads section of PreSonus' website.
