I have a motu 8pre from the generation when it still had firewire 6 pin connectors. I currently plug it in to the MP with a 6-pin to 9-pin cable. I'm not sure if this is the best method, or if there is a better way to connect. Recently I upgraded to SSD, and learned that I couldn't get a benefit from 6G drives because my MP is limited to 3G in the HD slots. Then I learned that OWC has this accelsior thing that can go into the PCI and wallah... 6g+ ssd. This to me was a bit mindblowing and made me realise I need to ask more questions and re-examine what I know about my setup and how it can be improved, hence the question about how I'm connecting my audio device to the tower. I'm trying to reduce the latency as much as possible. Do you know of any hacks to improve this connection? I believe it can handle 400mb/s beacause it is a firewire 400 device on the motu, but might there be a way to improve this somehow?
