    There is actually no downloads for the USBPre (before the version 2 model). The user guide only talks about XP or later being required and being a USB1 audio device, I doubt there would be an issue using on a more modern system assuming you have an ASIO driver installed (which you might well be able to use the USBPre 2 driver for that should it even need one).
