Whenever I'm thinking about buying a new piece of gear I always google the model number followed by the word "problems". This can throw up issues before you commit. I learned this from a Presonus firebox which I had to send back eventually..
I heard macs are not supporting firewire for much longer - is this true anyone?

The saffire looks best for me too. The REM box that Per suggested are out of my price range...unfortunatley. I have been using a M-Audio Fasttrack Pro that I can borrow from school, but it only has 4 outputs. I set up differently in different situations, but like to have several sources of sound to create a more spatial experience. Though I havent had the chance yet to create a longer live sound installation w a duration performance. we'll see....
good to know that a firewire interface is better...

I use the Saffire pro 40 soundcard for the 7 outputs from my guitar and can recommend it. It's really clean to my ears and critically for me, has a master volume control, ( handy if you don't carry a separate mixer around)
I'm curious about your plans for a multi channel setup. I've dabbled with a couple of Leslie cabs but have always fancied a proper surround gig.

is this the way you would set up a performance with many channels (at least 6 or 8):
Audio Interface to macbook with Ableton Live... outputs direct to loudspeakers or mixer...?
and if so one would need an interface with more than 4 outputs right? like this one???
or any recommendations... with my macbook i still have firewire, would that be recommendable... this is for live performances ... anything to consider with that? actually I do a live mix directly from the computer during the performance using midi controllers in ableton.. so this is a plausible solution right??????
