I am going to buy my first firewire interface. I have a macbook pro with 2.5GHz, and I have Logic Pro now. I am going to buy Pro Tools LE later. I was considering M-Audio 1814 because it can work with Logic and Pro Tools. However, I heard that 1814 crases many people's computer, so I don't think I will buy it. I heard Motu 8 pre is a good one, but it can't work on Pro Tools. Pro Tools can only work with Digidesign hardware and some M-Audio hardware for recording. However, is there any other ones can also work with Pro Tools? Can Digidesign hardware like 003 rack work with other recording software such as Logic Pro? I am looking for a good firewire interface with at least 8 inputs and 2 or more outputs that can work with Logic Pro and Pro Tools. However, I know there might not be one, so any other suggestions would be good too. My budget is kind of small, but I will consider the ones that are not in my budget range if I have to do it in order to get what I want. By the way, what about RME 400 or 800? Their review are good, but a little too expensive... But RME 800 can only record 4 mics at a time, isn't it? What if I want more mic inputs?
