Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any experience using the new Hercules Firewire 1612 interface with Max/MSP? It's Mac compatible, has tons of i/o, and the price is right, I just would rather hear something from someone who actually has used it before I go ahead and buy it. What are the pluses, minuses, does it work with Max well? Is it firewire bus powered or external (can't find that spec online). I haven't really heard anything about the reliability of the company either so am a bit hesitant to buy right away. Can anyone out there help me?
