Windows 10 Compatibility

This compatibility applies to Windows 1903, please see the articles linked at the very bottom of this article for earlier specific Windows 10 versions. 

Please see below a run-down of Focusrite product compatibility with Windows 10 as it currently stands. We would strongly recommend checking that your computer/motherboard is supported on Windows 10 by the manufacturer before updating and installing any relevant BIOS/chipset updates as required (please contact the manufacturer for assistance with this).

Please check that all other software/hardware you use to make music is also compatible before updating and never update your operating system during the middle of a time-critical project. If you're using additional software that came bundled with your Focusrite interface (e.g. Ableton Live Lite, Pro Tools First) then please check the corresponding manufacturer's website for compatibility information.

The latest drivers and control software for your product can be found on the Focusrite Downloads page here:
