I use a Presonus Firestudio with 2 Presonus Digimax FS (connected with adat cables), so I get 24 total tracks.
Unfortunately the firestudio is far from being reliable: really poor driver and unstable software-monitor applications. Every remote gig is a trouble to get it working.
So I would like to know if there is an audio interface with these features:
- 8 mic preamps on the front side
- 2 adat in
- really stable OSX driver
i run a firestudio 2626 with digimax as adat extenders, too. drivers were flaky until the latest beta with sonar 8. after i upgraded to sonar 8 all driver issues went away.
i can understand your frustration and i had really thought long and hard about selling it in lieuof the focusrite saffire 2626. so i would recommend that.
