[Hardware] RME Fireface 400 and Edirol FA-66 - bus-powered by a Macbook Pro

    May 02 2007 | 5:31 pm
    Quite a specific question, but I need urgent answers:
    I am looking for a portable interface. the Edirol is sexy because
    light and small, and the RME because it is full packed.
    I need some testimonies, very quickly: yes or no kind of.
    Any good/bad experience with either of them, when firewire bus-
    powered? Even with phantom-power on for the mic input?
    Thanks for your help

      I work with the RME 400 since 4 months
      and I find it really good, the bus powered works fine
      the driver is excellent to my opinion
      no problem at this day
      also in concert conditions
      the bus powered is ok (i did not test the phantom power...)
      but I will, and i could tell you later,
      one thing I like in the RME is the versatility of the inputs
      (the gain adjustement, the two instrumenst inputs...)
