Mac users who are lucky enough to own the latest Intel based machines,or perhaps waiting until their hardware is supported before buyin, will be thrilled with the news that Tascam have updated the drivers for all their USB and FireWire audio interfaces to make them compatible with Appleâ€™s new machines.
Devices to get TLC from Tascams boffins are as follows:
US-122, US-224, US-428, FW-1884, FW-1082 and FW-1804
Among the new Intel-compatible drivers is one for the FW-1082, which has new documentation for integrating with Apple's Final Cut Studio. The combination audio interface and audio/video control surface can function as a fader and edit controller for Final Cut Pro as well as a MIDI control surface in Motion for real-time effect control and color correction. The control surface is also compatible with leading audio workstation applications such as Logic Pro, Soundtrack Pro, Digital Performer, Cubase, Nuendo, SONAR and Pro Tools.
