Well, today I attempted to record some music with my buddies... I have an M-Audio Firewire 1814 and Protools M-Powered. I also have a brand new SR MBP running leopard. Now, anybody with a setup similar to mine knows that M-Audio is dragging their feet (as usual) on releasing leopard compatible drivers. Silly me, i thought I could install everything in XP and it would be just fine... HAHAHA! I have had some trouble with the m-audio drivers before, but come on! The problems under XP were ridiculous. I had to reboot quite a few times just to get it working properly. I am pretty worried tho. I tried running a firewire 800 external SATA drive to record to. But there seemed to be some sort of firewire conflict between the 1814 and the Oxford driven firewire enclosure. I hope this is just an XP issue, and does not pose a problem once M-Audio finally releases leopard compatible drivers. Back to the part about m-audio dragging their feet... They really need to stay on top of updating their drivers. I remember one 10.4.x compatible driver was released the day before the next 10.4.xx update came out. They really missed the bus on that one. Anybody using m-audio hardware cannot safely keep their OS up to date for fear of breaking compatibility with thier m-audio hardware. I am starting to consider selling my m-audio/protools setup and going with something else. Anyway, i have had my gripes about m-audio/protools running in os x... but they are NOTHING compared to the headache i had trying to run it in XP... never again.
