No, FireWire is the only way to connect the mixer to a computer. The SL 16.0.2 has FireWire 400, so I don't know if it works with Thunderbolt (PC). There is a helpful page waiting for you, the Download Page with the latest software and the manuals. You really need to get to know your mixer. http://www.presonus.com/support/downloads/StudioLive-16.0.2. There is also a forum with tons of information: https://forums.presonus.com/viewforum.php?f=67.
