I have a studio live 16x4x2 firewire and I just got a new system Installed universal control but in sonar it shows up as a Firestudio  so I can not get to all of the channels on the Studio live. I had it installed on a different windows 10 system and it worked fine. I need to get Sonar to see it correctly. Sonar is the latest version.

Since the StudioLive mixers utilize a FireWire connection they also utilize the FireStudio drivers in regard to connecting to a computer.

Even though the driver will show the StudioLive as a FireStudio you should still be able to utilize all of the inputs and outputs that are available for the mixer.

If you are having issues with your StudioLive showing all of the available inputs please submit a support request at for further assistance.
