    What Audio Interfaces are Snow Leopard compatible?
    Help! I need to get a new audio interface to record my band with and I'm having trouble finding an AI that is Snow Leopard 64 bit compatible. Any suggestions? I prefer to be able to record 8 independent tracks simultaneously but could probably get by with four.

    I've found that the people who work in the stores that sell devices (i.e. music stores) are terribly unknowledgeable about the compatibility of the devices they sell!

    Hey there,

    I'm using the Presonus Firestudio at the moment:

    PreSonus FP10 10x10 FireWire Interface (Firepod) and more Audio Interfaces & Convertors at GuitarCenter.com.

    8 mic/jack inputs, great pre-amps, Logic saw it instantly. I'm also on Snow Leopard.

    Of course people who work there don't know, they're professionals

    How many independent tracks can you record simultaneously with it? I was interested in the PreSonus Firestudio Project but I called PreSonus and they told me it's only compatible with Snow Leopard 32 bit, but not Snow leopard 64 bit.

    Sorry....one last question....do you know whether your SNow Leopard OS is 32-bit or 64-bit? Because a tech guy at PreSOnus told me the beta driver for Snow Leopard only works with 32-bit Snow Leopard but not the 64-bit SNow Leopard.

    Here's a screenshot:



    I'm pretty sure it's 64bit.

    Mac I/O Interface
    I'm using Apogee's ONE product and it is INCREDIBLE!! It only takes one instrument or input at a time, but for the individual musician/song writer it is THE way to go.
