Hi I´m getting a small but good home recording setup together. I had decided on a MacBook Pro or an iMac with a firewire interface like a RME Fireface 800 or a MOTU Traveler + some other stuff. But now I´ve read several reports on recording forums about a problem regarding both the MacBook´s and iMac´s. It seem Apple has opted for Agere firewire chips instead of the better TI chips - probably for a cost saving reasons. The Agere firewire chips however seem to be incompatable with the firewire protocol/standard the the major producers of firewire audio interfaces adhere to, and so an RME or MOTU (or many other company´s) firewire interface will not run properly with a new MacBook or iMac. If it´s true then Apple is in for a rough ride, as at lot of if not most of their die hard fans and users are people working with audio. Have any of you get any experiences with this, that could comfirm if the problem is real or not, and if there is any workarounds or the new Mac´s are a strict no-go with the mentioned firewire interfaces (at least until Apple change the chips or make a workaround).
