Still no official word from Avid/ Digi then.

I wonder why Digi would let Mackie make this? I would imagine that there's reason they would and could break it anytime with a software update.

Surely the copy protection routines are going to be more efficient in Digi/M-Audio hardware than at the driver level too?

These devices use the TC Electronic DICE chipset which is also used in the ProFire 2626. If Mackie can fool ProTools into thinking the Onyx is a ProFire then I'm not sure how M-Audio/Digi will get around this...

Maybe they need help from TC Electronic??

It will be fun to watch this one unfold
