FA-101 FireWire Interface Gains OS 9 Drivers


December 31, 2004

Edirol Corporation has announced Mac OS 9 support for the FA-101, 10×10 FireWire Audio Interface. This driver set includes ASIO2.0, OMS, & FreeMIDI support on Apple computers running Mac OS 9. With OS 9 and OS X support, the FA-101 now offers low-latency, high fidelity, multi-channel audio support to essentially all Mac users.

On Mac OS X, the FA-101 uses Apple's Standard FireWire Audio driver offering complete integration into Mac OS X 10.3.4 or later. Apple has recently further refined this driver with the release of Mac OS X 10.3.7.

Edirol's support of Apple's Standard FireWire Audio Driver greatly simplifies the user experience when it comes to installation. Loading drivers is a thing of the past with the FA-101 in OS X. The user simply plugs-in and immediately the device appears.
