Hi.....anyone that have som experience about iMac in a music studio.


I like to know if its some adapter or something I can connect between the thunderboltcable and in to a normal digital mixer ?


It should end up in two ordinary balaced jackplugs.



Or,   Is it better to use firewirecable to audiointerface ?


Or, maybe USB ?


Happy for tips and tricks !



iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)

    thunderbolt interfaces are rare, at the moment, but more will appear this year.

    what kind of setup are you looking for?

    do you want to record more than one musician at a time, a band or orchestra?


    how many ins and outs do you need/want?

    ok, sounds like not too much recording 'live', or many tracks at once, maybe vocals and the occasional instrument?

    what is your main DAW?
