Saffire Pro40 ADAT output issue solved

Posting in case it can help anyone using these old Pro40s. I was banging my head on this and finding zero information, and only one other post on a Logic discussion board which felt like the same issue. Greg at Focusrite support was great, spent time with it, and found the solution.

Issue was setting up two ADAT-connected Pro40s for 16 i/o, (Mac pro 5,1, Sierra, but not sure if it matters) I could get 8 out from FW connected unit (DAW 3-10), but could never get the full 8 out via ADAT (DAW 11-18) on the standalone unit, DAW 17-20 were going nowhere, not showing any signals in MixControl channels. Noticed "mirrored" signals to DAW 1-4 were the only way to get signal at DAW 17-20.

Greg eventually found the issue in their database and recommended an install of the MixControl software 3.8b1 which included removing all traces of prior versions. It prompted to update firmware on the FW connected unit after install/restart, which I did, and once I was able to get it to lock again, i've got the full 18 out. Big exhale, thanks to Greg!
