FOH Staff • New Gear • March 25, 2021

PreSonus has released Universal Control 3.4.2, a milestone update to its multi-product control and driver software package that includes full support for Apple Silicon M1-based Mac computers.

More details from PreSonus (

All currently supported PreSonus hardware—including all USB audio interfaces (AudioBox and Studio series), Quantum-series Thunderbolt interfaces, StudioLive mixers (16.0.2 USB, AR series, and Series III), ATOM-series pad controllers, and FaderPort-series control surfaces—now works natively with M1-based Macs.

Universal Control 3.4.2 includes a firmware update for the PreSonus Quantum 4848 interface and for the company’s ATOM and ATOM SQ pad controllers. ATOM SQ now connects correctly on macOS Big Sur 11.2 and later. Connectivity has been improved with some Windows systems, as well. The update also implements pad performance adjustments for both units.
