Text size [-] [+]

Q: Can I connect my M-Audio FireWire interface to a FireWire 800 (FW800) port with a FW400 to FW800 adapter cable?

A: Yes, all M-Audio devices will function normally when connected to a FireWire 800 port with a FW400 to FW800 adapter cable.  We have successfully tested all devices streaming all channels at the maximum I/O; we have tested at highest bit depth/sample rates available; as well as verified control surface functionality with the ProjectMix I/O.  Please see this article for information about problems in combination with FW800 Hard Drives.
