Ive been recording for about 9 years and use a desktop. My pc is a workhorse but I need to have mobility Just got a quad core laptop with a ton of ram, more than capable of handling recording but they dont make laptops these days with firewire , mainly cuz its not a highly used consumer input... I use a focusrite saffire pro 24 channel recorder my laptop doesnt have a firewire input, only usb. Ive tried looking for a usb to firewire converter but am comming up short. I see some cables with usb on one end and firewire on the other end but fortunately I read up on them and I have yet to find one that actually converts the signal, theyre just dead cables with usb on one end, firewire on other but they dont actually convert the signal Does anyone know of any way to fix my connectability issues? sorry for poor grammar and spelling, its quite late for me. Thanks for reading and any info on this.
