User profile for user: Our Verdict An entry-level fuss-free interface, which is ideal for the travelling songwriters on a budget. I upgraded to Snow Leopard recently and before and after that, searched for forums for any problems related to this device and SL. Thank you, I hope this can help people struggling with the same malfunction. I tried both and got same results. Once again device worked fine for the first two minutes but then the real problems started: Naturally, a unit of this size and price is going to be limited on features, but it does provide enough for basic recording sessions on the hoof.

Roland Edirol FA-66: FireWire Audio Interface With Mac OSX
oxx Indeed, the switch in FA’s back panel should be set to same sample rate as the computer’s. You’ll need a six-pin connection to power the device from the FireWire bus, but a mains adaptor is included if you have a four-pin.
I upgraded to Snow Leopard recently and before and after that, searched for forums for any problems related to this device and SL.
And it’s not even supposed to be supported for other than intel Macs! I read somewhere that not-so-good cables can cause the FireWire-ports safety fuse to go off and mess up the bus, or in my case, the whole computer.
Ask a question Reset. Once again device worked fine for the first two minutes but then the real problems started: Could this be SL-related? Sep 16, 5: You can power the interface both by bus or by a DC ediorl. So I learned a lesson here: It began to feel that the FireWire port was somehow messed up.
Edirol FA FireWire Audio Interface not… – Apple Community
But then it just froze. So if you type audio in your spotlight click on audio MIDI setup and make sure all devices are on the same sample rate you should not have this problem fq66 well I haven’t yet anyway. Sep 18, 2: I bought one and tried it right there at the store.
User fs66 for user: The FA was accompanied by two FireWire cables, but they were and All this was repeated with numerous restarts and logouts and whatnot. The cable was of Belkin, the same brand that Apple Store sells, and it was three times as expensive as my previous ones but I guess it was woth it.
To start the conversation again, simply ask a new ta66. Then I walked in to an Apple reseller and asked for a decent FireWire cable third used during this af66.
But soon the same pattern repeated. All-access artist interviews, in-depth gear reviews, essential production tutorials and much more. Only buy and use quality cables and if something is not working, be suspicious about the cheapest part first. So I did what seemed like a good idea and shut the computer down and removed the AC adaptor and battery and let the machine “cool down” for an hour or so.
Now the setup has been running flawlessly for 2 hours straight so I just might say phew! But thanks for pointing this out for future readers. I checked osc System Preferences and it had disappeared from there, only built-in audio in the menu.
You can apply an analogue limiter to the audio ins to combat clipping while recording. I need to get this thing working and I’m starting to panic Sep 11, 1: My FA was set to 48k and the internal devices were set to 96k which caused a sync error within the FA dont ask me how. Mac users will appreciate the FA- 66’s plug-and-play capability – it uses the standard Apple FireWire driver, so you can hook it up and start recording. Could it be that the interface is somehow not supporting the port and that’s causing the problems?
Naturally, a unit of this size and price is going to be limited on features, but it does provide enough for basic recording sessions on the hoof. I tried rebooting and it was alarmingly slow.
