if I downgrade my Mac to the last operating system, Mojavi, can I download drivers for Universal Control and use my Studio/live 16.4.2 ? I just got the upgrade for Studio One 4.5  but can't connect my mixer to use it. maybe I should dump my Mac and go PC. I just want to get back to recording using my old gear. Ive heard downgrading will work, cause Apple really screwed this new operating system up for recording people like me. please help with information soon. this whole thing is getting very frustrating .Thanks in advance.

The Mojavi downgrade might make sense, but the Knowledge Base document doesn't say anything about Studio One or Capture. As you have Studio One 4.5 already, why not just try?
