    Hi there,im a new member and was wondering if anyone can help me?

    I have been using (Slow Tools), oops sorry,Pro Tools for over 10 years now
    in my work as Freelance Engineer.

    I have now opted to go back to Logic for the fact i can get a damn sight more
    Audio channels 220 compared to Pro Tools LE 48 with Music Prod Tool Kit and there is the latency issue with LE.

    I have just purchased a Yamaha O3D Dig desk which i want to use with Logic
    but im not 100% sure what is the best way to do this (been stuck in the world of Pro Tools for too long).

    1- Is it possible to connect the O3d to my Mac G5 so i can mix from the O3D to control Logic?

    2-Do i need to buy a card which will be the link between the G5 and the 03D?

    If anyone can help me on this matter it would be a great help.

    You could connect via firewire if you have the optional mLan card, or with an ADAT interface with the ADAT option.

    It's not clear from your post, but are you trying to use the 03D as a control surface rather than as a mixer?

    The 02R96 and 01V96 both have a "General DAW" target setting in their remote MIDI control menu which can be used for control of Logic Pro 8 via the USB MIDI interface. I don't think the 03D has that, so you may be out of luck.
