Hey, I decided to build a mini home recording studio. I need to attach the following peripherals to my 2.0 GHz White MacBook with 1 GB RAM: Sennheiser MD419 microphone (XLR) Cort 70E acoustic western guitar (1/4" jack) M-Audio Keystation 49e midi USB keyboard (USB) Sennheiser HDR110 headphones (1/8" minijack) I'll be using Garageband 3 (iLife '06). I was wondering which is the best. I know the FireWire solo is double the price, but I dunno about differnces between the two. I would like a spare USB port, but the Fast Track has a mini jack for my Sennheiser HDR110 headphones. To use these with the Firewire Solo, I'll need to use the jack>minijack adapter I already have (will look ugly). Second, the Fast Track also has the excact aount of ports I need, also the RCA output is going to be useful. I just want to know, what are the technical advantages I get from buying the FW Solo instead of the Fast Track. And if anyone has the Fast Track, what kind of USB cable does it ship with. I really want a pretty Apple cable for my MB. If I'm buying the FW Solo, I'm getting a .5 m thin Apple 6-6 pin FW400 cable. Any advice?
