The technical issues are outlined there, but briefly: Indeed the firmware for the Ozone is installed by the MIDISPORT installer to the disk, but there is some work necessary to have that firmware then transferred to the Ozone (it uses a different protocol, DFU, than that used by the MIDISPORTs, it seems), and there is some work to investigate which protocol such DFU devices use, either the same non-standard protocol the MIDISPORTs use, the USB MIDI class compliant spec, or some other non-standard protocol.

Thanks so much Leigh, you’ve given me a bit of hope! I will follow your advice! :)

So I’d got as far as trying to install the firmware downloader but a message came up saying this installer is not suitable for this operating system...I’m currently running Catalina

Hi, I've installed last version of the driver and it works flawlessly on Catalina. I was about to give my MidiSport 2x2 away. Thanks!!!
