Its surprising that this story didn't cause more of a stir, but if you recall, Mackie announced that they had written a driver that would allow the new Onyx i mixers to play nicely with the M-Powered version of ProTools.

This was essentially them publicly announcing that they had cracked the code - quite a big deal I think you'll agree.

I've tried it, and it does work, its not vaporware.

Drumroll please: Yesterday in a press announcement, AVID and Mackie announced that they had reached an agreement to make this link formal.

Whats the catch?

Well to use the Mackie Onyx iSeries FireWire equipped desks with ProTools M-Powered, you'll need to buy the Mackie Universal Driver at $49.99

Chris Gahagan, Senior Vice President of Products at Avid said, “Avid has made openness a key component of its ongoing strategy, and this agreement with LOUD is a perfect example of how we continue to open up our ecosystem.  As joint developers of the HUI protocol, Avid and LOUD have a history of working productively together, and we’re pleased to be working together on this latest endeavor to provide our customers with more choice and flexibility when it comes to unleashing their creativity.”
