Ok, firstly, Alesis customer service is NON EXISTENT, I sent them an email 4 months ago about an issue I had and I still have had no reply.

I have a nice Mac, (Is there any other kind) It's fast, has loads of ram and untill I installed Leopard worked seamlessly with OS X. Now I have installed Leopard, My Mac sees it and records from it no problems. It won't however playback through it, no matter what I try.

I've spoken to Apple who were very helpful. They have got me to rollback the FireWire driver to SDK23. Unfortunately this didn't work.

My Mackie Onyx works fine, but it's only a satellite and only has 2 inputs. I need 12 for the studio.

I'm of the oppinion that Alesis need to Write a new driver for it but I don't think thats going to happen for a good long while yet and I'm recording on the 5th Nov.

Can anyone please help with any advice I may find useful. I don't know how I can help back, but if it's in my power, I will.

I wouldn't Alesis have said they're getting a Beta driver out within the week. I'm having the same issue, but it's not an issue until a few weeks when I need to be doing some field recordings.

Still, I'd like Alesis to get some good drivers out quickish...
