Edirol Support Legacy Mac OS For FA101 FireWire Interface
Good on ‘em I say 23/12/04
It’s not too often we hear of older OS support for the new generation of audio interfaces so it’s good know that Edirol have bothered to keep us old timers going for a little longer. Most new stuff appears to only support XP and OS X, but Edirol have just announced Mac OS 9 support for the FA-101, 10x10 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 is still the only FireWire Audio interface to use 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 as seen here:

The FA-101 is a single half-rack 10x10, 24-bit/96kHz audio interface capable of drawing power directly from a 6-pin FireWire port for optimum portability. It can also record up to 6x6 at 24-bit/192kHz. It offers 8x8 analog I/O with two phantom mic preamps, Stereo Optical S/P DIF I/O, MIDI I/O, and 1/4" headphone output with built in direct through mixing capabilities for low latency monitoring. The FA-101 offers an incredible 108 dB S:N on output. It is designed to offer the most important tools for multitrack recording to mobile musicians and sound artists.
