Hello People, i´ve just got a new Mac Mini  last week, and i´ve been trying to get my Alesis MasterControl audio interface, and is just a complete mess.

This happened right after i´ve upgraded to 10.8.3 so i don´t know, the weird thing is that if i connect my old iBook to the Mac Mini the FW800 port works, but everytime i connect the audio interface, nothing happens, also the drivers from alesis, are up to date. i first thought about the port of the Mixer went bad, but it has 2 and non of them works, also thought about the cable but the same cable works when i connect my iBook, and the mixer is not bus powered, it has it´s own power supply.

 

Needless to say i´ve already done the usual reset PRAM, turn of the Mac unplugged for 30 hour to reset the bus. etc.

 

This is the usual firewire only system log that i get:

    I have this

    Pls, help!!

    I really wish people with good knowloedge about inside Apple computers would visit these forums. I can't count how many times there are messages in the Console that no one can tell what they mean (like this “no valid selfIDs” message). It'd be awesome that no one can figure out these kind of messages.

  • tobto Level 1 (0 points)

    Agreed. I came across all web and nobody knows that 'no valid selfIDs' means in OS-terms. Hey! Programmers??!!
