Onyx 1620i Firewire workaround? - forum Mackie Onyx 1620i
It seems like there would be something that would convert the firewire to USB input or something that would work? Am i just S.O.L?
Thanks for any help!
Like you said and you are right most multitrack firewire equipment don't work with these type of adapters.
One of the problems you face is the protocol / speed of the digital bus.
2nd: the firewire equipment has to support firewire2usb drivers/software
If you like to record directly from your mixer which is probably multitrack out and it will not support firewire2usb, i have no other answer than " NO there is no way to work arround that problem " and " YES you have to use your desktop computer "
Or you have to buy a multitrack usb audio interface and link your mixer to that with audio cables.
I'm sorry that i can't give you the aswer you hoped for.
