have to use the h8000fw as your interface by bypassing my lynx card in my program and use the eventide drivers for all the ins and outs to show up in my recording program...to bad they cant set it up as a vst plug
..i have an h8000A
im just considering the upgrade to FW
I have different, but similar DAW setup (but with 3 FW devices):
RME AES 32 Card
TC Powercore (PCI + FW)
Apogee AD-DA 16X via Firewire
H8000 via Firewire
What I found:
Powercore FW conflicted sometimes (not often, but should be mentioned).
After I put new PCI-e Firewire 800 (Siig) card, with 3 FW ports all conflicts resolved and I can use 16 ch of AES EBU digital transfer via RME card + 16 ch of Apogee conversion + 8 ch of H8000 Firewire processing + Powercore processing simultaneously in 24/96 operations flawlessly.
So, 40 channels, both ins/out, rock solid + huge processing.
Actually I don't need more and DAW with such capability (comparable to upper PT) nowadays actually costs just around price of high-end compressor.
It took some time to build it, but I am amazed how good this setup works.
