I’m considering to buy a new audio interface and I’m considering two main options:
MOTU … MK3 or Steinberg MR816…
I don’t want to dabate the features but more how stable they run with C5/32/64 on a W7-64 PRO PC (see my signature). Any information how it runs with the mainboard Firewire chip? (ASUS P5Q-PRO). Is it a 400 or 800 chip? Should I consider purchasing an adidional Firewire card?
What is your experience with the “Hybrid” one with Frewire and USB? Since I will be using the interface during live performances, I want to connect it to my laptop (Dell Dimension 800 , 6 years old , only a mini 1394 connector). Card slot still free so I could get a Firewire extension card.
I’ve read in some MOTU forums topics with many users having problems with 64 bit drivers.
Any advice is wellcome.
