This is my very first port with you guys and after reading alot of different postings from various enthusiasts followed by great advice from the forums experienced engineer types and moderators of the like, I feel the answer to my questions will come rather easily. I'm building a home recording studio around my drum kit. I run a macbook pro, protools LE, and an MBOX. I have a really good idea of where I want to go from here; I just need some advice on getting there. I NEED MORE PRES!!!! I want to buy 2 x 8 channels Pres (hoping to be lucky enough for one of them to by tubed). The problem is, I haven't any Idea how to connect them to the MBOX. I'm constantly seeing these preamp strips that have to Firewire ports side by side on the back, which are very similar to those on the back of my MBOX2. I've done my own research and can't sem to get a valid answer. Do I just daisy chain the external hardware all the way up to the MBOX (in one firewire and out the other until I reach the mbox)???
