Currently Being ModeratedApr 19, 2008 6:40 PM (in response to pearlypete)i've got an edirol fa-101 and it work fine. imo i think almost any interface should be fine. if im not mistaken certain digidesign ones haven't made theirs compatible yet to leopard but i could be wrong here.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 20, 2008 10:07 AM (in response to pearlypete)Most interfaces should work with Leopard. There are a lot of threads here about interfaces, so if you do a search for 'audio interface,' you'll find some info, and you'll be able to find people talking about the ones that don't work well.
I have a MOTU Ultralite, and the Leopard drivers seem to be working fine. I also have an M-Audio 410, and I haven't tried it with Leopard yet, but the Leopard drivers are still in BETA, so M-Audio is probably not your best bet. Lots of people, myself included, think their drivers, even full releases, are a bit sketchy anyway.
There are a lot of people here who really like the Apogee Duet, and I haven't seen anyone complaining about its compatibility with Leopard.

Jut make sure you don't go with m-audio or digidesign, they are best used with ProTooliMac Intel 1.83Ghz 2GRAM, Mac OS X (10.5.2), SSL Duende Mini, Logic Studio, LE 7, Motu 8pre, Boss GT-6

Currently Being ModeratedApr 21, 2008 10:42 AM (in response to Ryan Burkholder)Thanks for the replies. I got it working by plugging it into the right usb port rather than the left on a macbook pro and have had no problems. I didn't realise the usb ports were different, but having done a search on this it still remains unclear as to whether this is a fault on the new macbook pros or just the way it is. Anyone know?macbookpro 2.4 gz, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 21, 2008 2:48 PM (in response to pearlypete)That's not a good sign. They should definitely be exactly the same. Try plugging something else into the port to see if it works. If it's still under warranty, you should have someone look at it.Macbook Pro, 2.33GHZ, 2GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Logic Pro 7.2, Logic Studio, MOTU Ultralite, M-Audio 410, Alesis MultiMix 12

Currently Being ModeratedApr 21, 2008 9:17 PM (in response to pearlypete)RME's FireFace800 works fine (except in 96kHz mode with low buffer settings) on my Mac Pro, but apparently there's a problem with certain MacBook Pro's and a FireWire chipset that some of them use (if you connect it to the FW400 port - using the FW800 slot should be OK).
If you start your Mac in a certain mode (with Cmd+S ?) it will show which chipset the Mac has, and if it says "TI", you should be fine with FF800. If not, try a FW800 cable if you use a FW400 cable. From what I've heard, this affects other external FW devices as well.8-core Mac Pro 2.8ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.2), 8x1g RAM
Currently Being ModeratedApr 23, 2008 7:51 AM (in response to pearlypete)HI Ryan,
I also own a Presonus Firebox & I 've read about Firewire Kernel pbs with many firewire audio devices. I agree this was with Mac pro rathen MBP but I'm still surprised.
Never experienced any trouble with L8 + Jaguar 10.5.2 and the Firebox?
