I've been using digirack 002 through firewire 400 for years and been working fine on macbook pros but being a mac buff, I'm going to want a newer macbook pro eventually, which means no firewire 400. Definitely not the only one with this problem. But at the same time, I'm getting sick of digidesign's core audio problems and updating indifference. I already changed from using Pro Tools to using Logic too. So, I need a new audio/midi interface, but preferably USB. Someone mentioned the Apogee Duet for ease of use, I don't know about its sonic quality, though. Plus, it only comes in firewire 400 which can be turned into 800 but I already use the 800 slot for my external drive where I keep my music libraries and other recording related software. The new macbook pro has 1 firewire 800 slot and 2 USB slots. I already use one USB slot for the mouse and the firewire 800 for the external drive. So, I have the last USB slot free where I can hopefully use an interface. So, by priority, I am looking for: 1) USB connection 2) Least driver issues possible, maybe something very compatible with Macs. 3) Price 4) Good audio quality I record a lot of electronic and basically only need one input for direct line bass and guitar and one mic preamp for voice and some acoustic guitars. I know its a little specific but if you guys can't find something no one can. Thanks for all the help.
