Can I connect multiple M-Audio FireWire Devices to the same computer?
Text size [-] [+]

Q: My M-Audio FireWire interface has 2 FireWire ports, can I link multiple M-Audio FireWire devices together for more inputs/outputs?  Or can I connect multiple M-Audio FireWire interfaces to different FireWire ports on the same computer?

A: No.  Only 1 M-Audio FireWire device can be connected to the computer.  On our interfaces that feature dual FireWire ports, one port is to be connect to your computer, and the other port can be used as a "passthrough" for an external FireWire peripheral (such as a FireWire hard drive).  We recommend connecting only self-powered devices to these inputs. Bus powered devices may affect your audio performance.
