Daisy Chaining Rosetta 800s. What are the possibilities?
Who happens to be using to Rosetta 800 converters? Is anybody daisy chaining them together with FireWire?
Let's assume that both Rosettas have the X-fire Fireware card installed. I am thinking of two scenarios here, neither of which may work :-)
I know a lot of people will plug one Rosetta 800 into their Digi 002 or 003 via ADAT. Would it be possible to then plug a second Rosetta 800 into that first Rosette 800 via X-fire FireWire cards and therefore have 16 channels of Rosetta?
Or, is the way to do it simply plug the first Rosetta 800 into your Mac directly (without Digi hardware) with a FireWire cable, and then daisy chain the second Rosetta 800 into the first Rosetta with another FireWire cable?
I have a friend who runs two Rosetta 800s, but he has symphony cards installed in the Rosettas and a symphony PCI card installed in his Mac desktop.
It's a long story about why I would want to do this, so I won't bore you with an explanation. Suffice it to say that we'd first like the explore any firewire possibilities first.
Thanks for your time!
