    I wonder could anyone tell me what exactly this card is for? I took it for granted that it would allow signals to be passed to a computer, but apparently that's not the case.

    I'm really curious about this!

    Synchronization for the Native Studio with
    the X-FireWire Expansion Card
    Like the Rosetta 200 & 800 and the AD & DA-16X, BIG BEN has an expansion slot for the optional X-FireWire card. With the X-FireWire card installed, BIG BEN can synchronize digital devices that provide inadequate clock signals such as keyboards, synth modules and other FireWire based devices to provide a stable, well synchronized environment for your entire studio.

    the above was taken from the apogee web site.

    so yes it seems you would be able to sync with othe fire wire device's

    Thanks Frob
    I think this is the first time I've seen a Firewire card used like this. I wasn't aware that keyoards or synths can be clocked through FW :? Shows how I'm losing touch with the modern world :wink:
