    Anybody have thoughts on an 8in 8out portable audio interface for use with Max/MSP. Has to be usb2. no firewire as I plan to use it with a pc laptop that does not have firewire. Would love it to have a MIDI foot-switch in too!

      I am using a RME Fireface 400 (Firewire), the newer "UC" version is a USB only version. the sound quality and driver reliability are both outstanding. It's not cheap though. It has Midi 2I/2O as well, but no footswitch in,

      MOTU's UltraLite mk3 is a hybrid Firewire/USB2 interface that's a bit cheaper than the RME. RME's sound quality is undoubtedly higher, though.
