I am about to update my computer and this will mean I will be running an OS that can not support my Firestudio Project ( Currently connected to the computer running a firewire to Thunderbolt 2 cable).

I have my eyes on a new interface but wanted to know if I connected the Quantum to the Firestudio via Firewire to TB3 (current cable with Apple adapter to convert to USBc/TB3) would the quantum see this as additional inputs? Giving me the ability to still use the Firestudio in newer OS releases with the quantum being the primary device connected to the computer.
