i have considered the 1640i though my worry is just what you said about the firewire. i haven't owned a Mackie Firewire interface yet, and wonder just how stable the system is. what is the lead that caused you issues and what lead works for you?

the 1640i is a heavily featured machine - very nice, but sadly too big for my setup.

I think the first lead was a belkin 800-400, then I just put a 6-pin to 4-in with a little 400-800 adapter which worked better - but was cheaper - go figure

Fantastic review, I've always liked Mackie mixers in the past. Nick have you done a review on the Presonus Studiolive? I'd like to know the difference in it and the Mackie 1640i. Thanks from all tech-heads in Mississippi, U.S.A.

So it doesn't work with L.E?

Dude, this mixer rocks for the price. I was using an apogee duet, until i bought this desk. Now, i have NO use for it. I'm using LP8 & PT-MP and it works flawlessly on my Mac Book Pro 15in (2Ghz, 500Gb, 2G Ram). I have my FW hard-drives daisy chained to the extra FW port, and no problems. Didn't purchase a new FW cable. It comes with an adapter for FW800. Can record to all eight channels, simultaneously. Studio Live feels like a toy, IMO.
