Yet another daisy chaning question

Hello,

I have asked this in other threads, but never received an answer really, and most people point out opinions on this issue, but I have not found somebody say "tried and worked / didn't work". So I would like to ask all those who HAVE ACTUALLY TRIED IT to let me know their experience...

Is it possible to daisy chain a FW audio interface and a DSP like Liquidmix or PoCo FW to just ONE FW port on your computer?

Does it make a difference if they are hooked up on two different FW ports on the computer, but both ports are on the same FW bus (like in the MacBook Pro)?

Yes, there's two possibilities:

1) We're too lazy, busy, stuck up to answer your question or
2) Nobody is actually doing this (daisy chaining FW devices)

I don't think it's option (1). People here are usually nice and helpful.

Seems like nobody is really doing this. Possibly because most manuals/web sites/forum writers/other folk lore advice against daisy chaining FW devices which are timing-sensitive.

If you want to challenge "common knowledge" then you could set up a testing lab on your own dime (of on a retailer's dime via a return if things don't work).

If you decide to test it yourself, please let us know how it goes. Good luck.

Best,
++aldo
