mLAN Support Improved for Mac OS X 10.3.3
March 15, 2004
With the launch of Yamaha's mLAN tools for Mac OS X v10.3.3, mLAN has been updated to provide enhanced support for Core Audio and Core MIDI. In addition, the simultaneous release of mLAN firmware updates for current products from Kurzweil, Presonus, and Apogee guarantees mLAN compatibility for currently-available mLAN products with Mac OS X v10.3.3.
Users will need to update to Mac OS X, version 10.3.3. This update is available for download at no charge through Software Update, accessible via System Preferences.
Once the Apple update is installed, you can then visit www.mlancentral.com to download the mLAN tools for Mac OS X from Yamaha and, if necessary, download firmware updates for current mLAN products like the Presonus Firestation, Apogee AD8000, and Kurzweil KSP8.
mLANCentral.com is an independent website hosted by Keyfax New Media, on behalf of the entire mLAN marketing alliance. As mLAN is an open protocol, the entire mLAN community will be pointing their customers to this site to find the necessary software tools for managing mLAN network connections, as well as all the firmware updates applicable to their mLAN products.
An easy-to-use Download Wizard at www.mlancentral.com directs users on what files and firmware updates they need for each of the various computer platforms.
mLAN is available for Windows XP, Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X and provides connection and control of musical networks over IEEE 1394 FireWire. This allows products from a growing number of musical instrument and pro audio companies to connect together in local area networks for music production.
