Subject: Re: [FFADO-user] focusrite saffire pro 24 firmware update
I recently updated the firmware on a Saffire Pro 24 to the latest version
which comes with MixControl 3.3 (Win/Mac mixer from Focusrite), upgrading
from what came with the previous version MixControl 2.4. I do not know
how these versions relate to the version 2761 you quote.
What I did was install MixControl 3.3 on my Windows partition and upgraded
the firmware. However, I use the Pro24 in linux with ffado. Anyway here
is my experience with ffado:
MixControl 3.3 firmware: audio works, midi in broken, midi out works
MixControl 2.4 firmware: audio works, midi in works, midi out broken
I did not test all audio functions, in particular ADAT. By "broken" I
mean sort of works, but the midi messages are garbled and events lost, and
so not actually usable. Since I use the Pro24 with a midi keyboard I need
midi in to work, so I had to revert to the firmware from MixControl 2.4.
Focusrite support supplied me with a Windows program to do the firmware
downgrade which I can supply to anyone who needs it.
