    I haven't used it, but wanted to share it, since someone mentioned he got his older Digidesign MBox work with it again, the Intel version costs a bit and the PPC-version is FREE :)

    There are also some MAudio USB drivers for PPC (from MAudio itself), I didn't know they did exist.

    Edit: I thought I just add them (not sure, if complete)

    - m-audio mobilePre
    - m-audio Omnistudio
    - m-audio USB Quattro
    - m-audio audiophile

    ...and while we're at it, some more audio drivers for Digidesign, Motu, Behringer,Mac+OS+X+10.5+PPC,Mac+OS+X+10.3.9,Mac+OS+X+10.2,Mac+OS+X+10.3,Mac+OS+X+10.1,Mac+OS+X+10.4

    and "Classic"

    I assume some of those came already with the equipment one bought or were included anyway...

    I currently use an M-Audio C400 as my main interface on my MBP. I love Logic Pro X to bits. I now use the old MobilePre interface it replaced with my G5. The install CD it came with was universal binary so it installed without a problem. I since acquired the most recent drivers online. In conjunction with Logic Pro 9 it's a decent secondary recording setup for when I'm not in college.

    Yes, I think we PowerPC users still have some good chances of finding the right usb driver at least for audio stuff.

    I found these dirvers by luck, at the time I was actually searching for a driver for my Freecom CD-RW 4424 external Drive, that worked under OS 9, but not under 10.2+. Unfortunately I think I will never find a dirver for that, because it is no real USB. In fact the device itself has an SCSI output and only converts it to USB. So, if someone stumbles over a freecom 4424 driver sometime, let me know. ;)
