View Full Version : RME Fireface 800 - Vista 32

Hello everyone,

My question is: Does the RME Fireface 800 work with Vista 32? Has anyone that tried that combination had any problems or even tips?

The reason for my questrion is as follows:

After buying a Firestudio Tube and my new Vista 32 computer (quadcore 2.4ghz, 4gb ram, three firewire ports, etc.), I found that the FS Tube doesn't work with my computer very well. I changed out the firewire card for one with a TExas Instruments chipset, as per the advice of tech support, and the audio still dropped out every fifteen seconds.

Long story short....I'm going to buy an RME Fireface 800...as long as it is going to work.

My undertanding of the Fireface 800 is that I can also purchase an Octo pre and run the outputs on that device into the TRS 1/4" inputs on the back of the Fireface at the same time that I will be using the four XLR inputs on its front.....thus giving me 12 inputs at once.

Is all of that correct?

THanks for everything! THis looks to be a great forum.
