*PC Driver v1.9 and Mac OS Core Audio for Onyx-i mixers do not support device aggregation. This means you cannot connect multiple Onyx-i devices to the same computer for simultanous use. Similarily, you cannot aggregate Onyx-i mixers with Onyx Blackbirds.

*Drive v4.1.0 + Control Panel v1.0.0 do support device aggregation on PC and Mac with other Onyx-i mixers, as well as Onyx Blackbirds (up to four devices). Note that if you are connecting an Onyx-i mixer to a PC or Mac by itself, the above PC or Mac driver is the appropriate driver for that setup. However, if you are planning to aggregate the Onyx-i mixer with an Onyx Blackbird, you will need the latest driver and control panel for the Onyx Blackbird which installs the Onyx Blackbird control panel and allows you to aggregate it with other Onyx-i mixers starting with the serial number 204.
