Onyx 1640i
      #1030780 - 28/01/13 09:49 AM
Was wondering if anyone has used a Mackie Onyx 1640i with an iMac running Mountain Lion OS X 10.7.4? If so are there any issues?

Not exact - but i'm running MBPro OSX 10;8;2 with Onyx 1220 Firewire. All works well. If i leave it all for a while without use, then come back to it, I have to turn the Onyx off them on again to get the mac to recognise it!

I'm using a new 1220i with Mountain Lion 10.8.2, it's a fantastic piece of gear which I am 100% happy with. The rehearsal recording I did of our band the other day turned out as one of the best location recordings I've ever done, better than anything I did with my FF800, although of course there are many more variables than that.

Having said that, (and not wishing to hijack the thread although any suggestions would be welcomed!) I am struggling to make the aux send/returns work with firewire to add plugin reverb or delay to live vocals. The aux outputs do show up in Cubase on input channels 11/12 as they are supposed to, but I can't seem to get them to show up again at the desk FW inputs...

Anyway I'm loving the mixer and I am fairly sure this is something I will figure out soon!
