Do NOT! repeat NOT!!! install the 1.7.9 update. It may destroy your studio!
After installing the 1.7.9 update, the driver no longer shows up in the “Audio MIDI Setup” and the interface is thus unusable. Neither can the “Yamaha Steinberg FW Control Panel” be launched!
The 1.7.9 update seriously messes up your system. Removing the 1.7.9 update and reinstalling v1.7.8, which worked perfectly (and still do on my secondary testdrive, that never saw the 1.7.9 update), doesn’t fix the problem.
I expect Steinberg to fix this catastrophic issue immediately. Destroying your customers studios is a very bad business strategy.
Yes, I am furious. Before installing the 1.7.9 update, I had a perfectly working recording studio. Afterwards, what I am left with is thousands of Euros with of useless hardware and software! I hold Steinberg solely responsible for this!
Not only has the update destroyed my ability to use the audio interface. I have also found out that iTunes will no longer start!
Still no response from Steinberg. Not a peep either here at the forum or from the “support”. What will it take for Steinberg to accept responsibility for destroying their customers computer systems?
