OK, I will look in that firewire thing sometimes, I know little about it as now. Is quality of firewire controller important? Can I use my on-board firewire? Regarding the onboard audio disabled in bios – nope, I did not do it. The WaveLab that I use for recording and for has a configuration that allows selecting which audio devise is used. The Lynx care is listed then along with Windows default sound devise – I just do not use system default sound cards. I did deactivate on my other DAW the onboard audio and I’ve seen no difference in sound.
