Topic: No FireFace400/800 under snow leopard : A good alternative.
As some of you, I bought a new mackbook pro running under snow leopard.
After six monthes of application crashes (both logic 8 and 9 quite almost every 20minutes) and kernel panics, I send it back to Apple, they told me the mackbook pro had no problems, every crash (even itunes or safari's one) were due to the fireface 400 drivers , even when the fireface was not plugged.
I spent two days searching on the internet which firewire sound card can replace my fireface 400 :
Anyone as a suggestion?
1) downgrading a bit with a motu utltralite, which is apparently not as good as a fireface in terms of latency,stability and quality of the preamps
2) Upradging, and taking the higher class, with something like a metric halo mobile 2882 or an Apogee Ensemble which are two time the price of a fireface !! hard to admit.
It's seems like there are no other soundcards like the fireface 400 in terms of quality...
If you could help me.
Thanks a lot!
