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??????
