« firewire is fast »Published on 04/03/12 at 22:44
I have experienced NO latency when using this with firewire. Its really fast, but there really is no such thing as 0 latency, but It feels like there is none which is hard to accomplish when it comes to hardware and software linking together. Make sure all of your audio cable’s and stuff are going straight from your get to the Firestation with no connectors or anything like that. Remember the more things (connectors/cables) you have between your gear and your interface causes lag issues big time.
No compatibility issues at all, works like a charm and the manual is easy to understand if you need it. Which you probably wont.
Overall, great piece of hardware. I was using usb before this interface. This was my first firewire interface and I am hooked on firewire now. Its just so much more responsive and quick. This is a great value for the price and these things go bloody cheap online! Look around on eBay and check some of the prices, most of them even come with some sort of a DAW just incase you have none this will be an all in 1 package for you.
