Additional Information and Support
The M-Audio website (www.m-audio.com) contains the latest drivers and program
updates as well as useful links to news stories, FAQs, and technical support. We
recommend checking this site regularly to ensure you have the latest drivers and most
up-to-date information about your M-Audio products.
Please check the M-Audio driver download page at
http://www.m-audio.com/drivers for the availability of an updated driver before you
decide to install operating system updates.
Before new M-Audio device drivers are released, they are tested for use with operating
system versions that are available at that time. When updates for an operating system
are released by Microsoft or Apple, all M-Audio device drivers have to be re-tested and
possibly updated to ensure proper operation.
M-Audio recommends refraining from installing operating system updates until a driver
has been posted to the M-Audio website for that specific operating system.
