It would be good if they could use the optical audio IO for ADAT, not just S/PDIF. I guess upgrading the driver to a more 'pro' standard isn't gonna happen though.

I'm pretty happy with the Preonus Firebox, it's got more ins and outs than you need but it's still nice and small and is built out of metal so it's giggable, unlike a lot of the plastic soundcards out there. Audio quality is quite good and latency is really low.

I'm gonna have to disagree with the people saying the Macbook is giggable. I've had my Macbook since September 06 and use it to do location recordings, record live gigs, gig with my band, DJ, record/produce at home and as my work laptop. The build quality of the Macbooks is designed for someone who'...

It's got 3 usb ports and a flash card slot. I was thinking I'd put an 8GB flash card in it and use that as my data drive, then use one usb port for a soundcard and one for the mpd. I'd prefer to use a solid state drive and keep it internal but if it wasn't fast enough I'd go for a bus powered usb dr...

Using an Asus Eee, XP and Live for gigs

Hi everyone, at the moment my band is using Live 6 on a Macbook to do the beats for our live show, I've been looking at an Eee as a possible replacement cause it's smaller, lighter, cheaper to replace if it gets broken and wouldn't be my main computer, so less stress at live shows. Has anyone got an...

I've got a Macbook (Core Duo, not Core 2 Duo) and it's awesome for music production. It runs sets at about 60-75% of what they were running on my G5, and the G5 was no slouch. Go for it I say! I wish I could have waited for the Core 2 Duo upgrade but I had to get one a couple of months ago cause I h...

Yeah that's a great bar, I did a recording there a couple of weeks ago for some of the red bull guys. Great vibe and the guys who run the place are awesome.

Yeah, putting your HD at the end of the chain is the best way to do it so you can unplug the HD and take it with you without having to unplug the soundcard.

I can't imagine what it will be like when I save up for 2 GIG's of RAM and a 160 GB 7200 RPM Hiatchi travelstar Internal Hard-drive. It'll most likely be a white puddle of melted plastic on the floor. Putting in a 7200rpm drive will start your macbook overheating, you'd be better off using an exter...

Running them all in a chain is fine, that's what firewire was designed to do. iMacs only have one firewire bus anyway, so even if you have your interface and drives in different ports, they're still using the bandwidth of the same bus.
