Adds flexible digital communication capability to your ONYX.
The Mackie Mixer FireWire I/O Card adds FireWire capability to your Mackie ONYX 1620, 1640, or 1220 mixer.
If you record and produce music on computers, this user-installable 24-bit/96kHz FireWire I/O card will give you the ability to send up to 16 individual channels of high-quality digital audio direct to any FireWire-equipped computer from your ONYX mixer (Windows XP or Mac OS X.3 or later).
You can also send a Left/Right stereo quick mix to the computer. A level trim control boosts or cuts the mix by ±10dB as it is sent to the card, letting you set levels independently for the live L/R mix and the recorded tracks.
Better still, the FireWire interface returns 2 channels of audio from the computer to the mixer, letting you monitor your computer through the control room/phones matrix. With FireWire, ONYX mixers can record everything from live gigs to studio sessions with higher quality and lower latency than many dedicated computer audio interfaces. (In fact, an ONYX 1640 mixer with FireWire rivals the specifications and performance of dedicated studio A/D converters costing more than the entire ONYX 1640 mixer. Not to mention giving you way more channels and flexibility.)

This works like a dream to record up to 16 tracks at once. The biggest problem is that they aren't upgrading their drivers. So if you plan on recording with more than 3MB of RAM using XP 64 or Vista (or have something before XP) then your out of luck.
I'm a beginer at this and the firewire card makes the whole recording project easy! I never excpected it would recording so easy. GET IT
This thing is perfect for the home studio. 16 independent channels w/ near-zero latency! The quality is great, the ease of use is incredible. I use Adobe Audition and Cubase SX with this card, and it works like a charm.
