Release notes

This release supports the following devices:

1st Generation Scarlett 6i6, 8i6*, 18i6*, 18i8 and 18i20

 

Tested on:

  • macOS 10.15 (Catalina)
  • macOS 10.14 (Mojave)
  • macOS 10.13 (High Sierra)
  • macOS 10.12 (Sierra)

NOTE: macOS 10.12 or later is required to run Scarlett Mix Control 1.10. This version will not install on macOS 10.11 or older.

What’s New?

  • Scarlett Mix Control is now a 64-bit application.
  • A restart is no longer required after installing Scarlett Mix Control.
  • Firmware 1100 for 1st Generation Scarlett 6i6, 18i8 and 18i20 is bundled with this release. This fixes an issue that could cause undesirable behaviour when changing clock source on these devices from machines running macOS 10.13 or later.

Known Issues

  • Changing the sample rate to 88.2/96kHz on 1st Generation Scarlett 18i20 also requires a manual change to the channel integer value in Audio MIDI Setup (see this article). Failing to manually make this change will result in no audio passing if you try to play audio back with an incorrect integer value selected.

*1st Generation 8i6 and 18i6 are discontinued products that are no longer covered under development support. While they have been tested to work with this version we will not be making any further updates to fix issues that may be uncovered with these particular devices in future. We are aware of issues that can occur when trying to change the clock source on these units to anything other than "Internal" when running macOS 10.13 or later with any version of Scarlett Mix Control (including this one).

Scarlett Mix Control 1.8 - Mac
Only needed for macOS 10.11, and older.
Release notes
  • Updates Mac driver to version 1.9

Important notes:

Release notes

Changes since the last main release (4.63.24):

  • Fixed an issue that caused some DAWs (namely Studio One, Reason and Sibelius) to expose unsupported buffer size options.
  • Added multichannel WDM support (surround sound).
  • Added option to expose multiple WDM inputs and outputs (Analogue, S/PDIF and Loopback channels).
  • Fixed an issue that could cause glitching on systems with some older AMD processors (Phenom-II, FX and Athlon series).
  • Fixed an issue that could cause glitching when using more than one ASIO application at the same time.
  • Renamed “LOCKED” to “SYNCED” to avoid confusion around clock status.
  • Numerous stability and performance improvements.

 

Notes: the additional WDM input and output channels can be enabled/disabled by clicking the Focusrite Notifier icon in the taskbar and selecting the “Expose/Hide Windows Channels” menu option.
