I just got a shiny new mac pro (8 core 2.26ghz, 6gigs ram) and i want
to use it with a Duet, Duende (19inch rack model) and an external Maxtor Onetouch III
If i plug both the Duet and Duende in to seperate ports using fw400 to
fw800 cables the sound quickly degrades to low bitrate mush.
If i chain the
Duet THROUGH the Duende to the mac pro i get the same distorted noise.
Duet and Duende work wonderfully if i only plug ONE in at a time.
fw800 hard drive seems to have no effect if its removed.
I'm using Logic 8 but
the distortion sometimes occurs even at the login screen.
I've got all the
updates available for OSX (10.5.7) and the latest updates for the Duet and Duende,
including Firmware for the Duende.
The same setup worked perfectly on my
MacBookPro c2d 2.33ghz, on that setup i had NOT updated to the latest version of anything
yet it was great! I had the Duet chained to the Duende on a fw400 slot, and i used an
expresscard FW800 adapter for the external hard drive.
Anyone got the Duet
& Duende both working on a new Mac Pro i'd love to hear how you are doing it!
