G’day G’day all,
I wonder if anyone has sum helpful tips for me, i am saving for an interface:
I have a core duo laptop, with 4 x USB2 and a 4-pin Firewire iLink.
Also I have a desktop rig , coupla years old ATM
I am wanting to have a total ‘mobile ability’ for my LAW (lappy audio workstaion )
Apparently , the 4-pin can’t ‘bus-power’ devices. Some more expensive laptops have the 6-pin.
\ I was keen on the RME Fireface400 but
My options so far are:
a PCMCIA 6-pin Firewire Port with TI chips - WILL THIS POWER THE DEVICE ??
USB2 Audio interface like teh MOTU 828mkii - WILL THIS BE TOTALLY MOBILE OR WHAT??
RME Cardbus + RME Multiface or similar - CRAZY EXPENSIVE AND STILL REQUIRES AN EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY
Yeah, I wonder if there’s a good path for me or what?? Is USB2 really unable to keep up with firewire inerfaces?
I play bulk guitar, sing/rap, synth/ electronics, mics etc.
Thanks heaps for any help ey, man im lovin 1.8.0b3 i love trackers!! love 'em.
ok Cheers .
