Which Laptpop?

Postby oldnewbie » Tue May 24, 2011 5:44 pm

I am trying to use my Allen&Heath Z10 desk with my Cubase essential 5, and realising the limitation of not having a fire wire input on my laptop.
I would appreciate any advice on upgrading this to a fire wire equipped upgrade.

many thanks for any help

Hello,

Usually it is better to have a Texas Instruments firewire chipset (not Via nor Alcatel-Lucent).

Which laptop do you have? Maybe it is possible to add a PCI express card with Firewire, or somthing like this.
