Firewire Adapter Needed for FW 800 iMAC users

William H. Arthur, amazon.com
18 January 2012
  • Summary: I have not been able to give this a full test yet. But be aware, if you have a Firewire 800 port, like I do on my iMAC 27" you need the 9 pin to 6 pin adapter. I think they sell here for around $12. More to come when my adapter arrives and I can actually test it.

Do not buy for OSX

Karyn O "Golf Girl", amazon.com

  • Summary: 1. It doesn't work. 2. Manufacturer's own instructions say hot swapping may destroy the device and your computer! I ignored other warnings about using this with Mac OSX and tried myself. It was a nightmare. And I don't usually post much negative about products, but this one is plain scary.

Great

Matthew Powell, amazon.com

  • Summary: Using it with a Macbook Pro and Pro Tools 9. After a little trouble shooting with the i/o settings in Pro Tools I got everything to run great. My only concern is that the firewire connection needs a 9 pin adapter which causes a flimsy connection.

A complete let-down

Josiah J. Failing, amazon.com
18 December 2010
  • Summary: This was my intro into home recording, mainly guitar-based music. I initially ran it on a low-end Dell with Windows Vista 32-bit. It worked fine until one day the computer didn't start up. Turns out the hard-drive was fried. Hmm. Got a new computer from Dell warranty and the same thing happened....

Owner for over 3 years + travel.

Jonathon Brouse, amazon.com

  • Summary: I've had this box for many years. This little workhorse runs great on XP, Vista, and 7 x64. I've been using Pro Tools 7.4 on XP. I've traveled with it and it's been pretty banged up. Highly recommended for recording demos and working on songs.

...If only it worked.

Joy A. Butzen, amazon.com
31 October 2010
  • Summary: The M-Audio Firewire Solo fit everything I had hoped for in an Firewire interface, If only it had worked. I could not get the Solo to be recognized by my Macintosh G5 (running 10.4.11).

DO NOT BUY

Commodore Sloat, amazon.com
20 July 2010
  • Summary: This card works well for a while and then just stops working. I've had it for over a year and have been back and forth with tech support. Their answer is always the same -- uninstall the drivers, do some genuflections (on OS X this involves repairing permissions a couple times; if you search the net...

Possibly a good product

J. Dollak, amazon.com
12 June 2010
  • Summary: I'm running an iMac from about two years ago, with 10.6. After installing the interface, which was awkward, and eventually getting it to work in Garageband, it worked fine. The quality was good. The guitar sounded a bit more natural.

Unreliable

Matt Gilbert, amazon.com
8 February 2010
  • Summary: This thing has given me endless headaches. It's not clear whether it's just glitchy or if it's poorly supported by my Mac laptop. Sometiems the output ports are available, sometimes they aren't. Sometiems the inputs work, sometimes they don't.
