I was pretty disappointed upgrading to the Mac OS Big Sur and see that my persons fire studio project  was no longer working with my MacBook Pro. I cannot downgrade back unfortunately. But, I really hope Presonus can create a patch to keep this mixer alive on the new MacOS. I would be extremely greateful!

I'm a 4 times owner of those great soundcard. Working very fine and would feel sad about changing it for the only reason that there's no software update.

Presonus guys, I would literally pay money to get a Mac M1 driver for the Firestudio project.

Let's make it happen !

Lots of love

I had recently purchased the new Mac Mini M1 and cannot hook up my Firestudio Project. Purchased all the necessary cables and spent a ton of money on the Apple to find out I can't not get it to connected. I finally upgraded my apple pro from 2010 and can see spending another 600 on a new interface when this one works flawlessly. Hopefully PreSonus will fix this soon.

I also have a firestudio project - it's wonderfully reliable and it's been really useful. I now have to upgrade to Apple silicone machines but would love to be able to continue using the firestudio project with them.

It is such a waste to turn a useful tool in a studio into a piece of useless scrap simply because noone can be bothered to write a software update for it !!  Come on, Presonus, treat your loyal customers with respect.

I own an original FireWire Studiolive 16:0:2 mixer which I still love and use. I think it has the same Firestudio driver? C’mon Presonus - carry on your tradition of taking great care of your customers, make us an ARM compatible driver and save our kit from needless obsolescence. ***
