Profire 2626 to Layla24/96 - connection

Im having trouble getting the Echo Layla24 to work with the M-audio Profile 2626 and then into a imac through the fire-wire connection.

Ive got a funny feeling that it only runs with a pci card, so could be screwed!

Information on the unit its self is pretty vague.

Any help would be great!

Ive also tried using a USB to 9 pin converter, but not had any luck.

it does take a PCI card to run it only.. does the new IMAC have any room to expand? if not get a 2nd Profire..

What are you trying to achieve with using both the interfaces? Do you want more inputs for multi tracking?

Im trying to expand to 16, brought the card, but it didnt really say it depended on the PCI. very vague.

is there no way of running it as slave through the profire?

You need the PCI card installed on a computer to use the Layla 24/96. Then you can use it as a converter.

What imac do you have? There actually could be a way to install it... Is it a G5, g4, ect? What year did you buy it... The echo interface is PCI based but there may be a way around it without using a computer... How long have you had the echo?

I brought it off ebay last week! ha!

Ive got this one

Apple - iMac - The ultimate all-in-one desktop computer.

so theres no room to expand.

Ive even spent £20 on a USB to 9 pin but to avail... :-(

Yeah you still need to have the PCI card pluged in to power the Layla 24.96. Maybe you can use an old computer with it.
