    Anyone try the M-Audio Firewire 410

    Time for me to add a second PC and upgrade my soundcards. The second PC will run Giga and a rack of virtual synths (primary PC runs Sonar). The audio card has to be:
    </font><ul type=\"square\">[*]<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Multi-host</font>[*]<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Have at least 4 outs (8 or more would be better)</font>[*]<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Low latency is key</font>[*]<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Digital outs (SPDF)</font>[/list]<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\"> Anyone have experience with the M-Audio Firewire 410 interface? Sounds like just about what I need, and a great price point (I got a quote in the low $300\'s) but I\'d like to know if anyone has tried one yet.

    Other options are the Gina 24, but then I\'ve got to pop in a PCI card and it wouldn\'t be as \"portable\" (as I\'d like to use it with my laptop and external Firewire drive on gigs at some point too).

    Yea, what he said! :-)

    I\'m in the same situation. The 410 looks like a nice solution, but the proofs in the puddin\', so to speak...

    I saw a post that indicated no GSIF support for the 410. The m-audio web site claims it does, and I have an email from product info at M-audio that confirmes GSIF support. (But again, proofs in the puddin\'...)

    I\'m also interested in how one integrates the 410 (or any other DA capture device) into a system that has a SB Live! for doing Soundfont playback, supporting cd/dvd players, etc. Does the output of the 410 feed into one of the line-ins of the SB? Is it better to run two analog lines to the amp/speakers - one from the SB and one from the 410? Or should the SB feed one of the inputs on the 410, which does the AD/DA conversion and passes analog on to the amp/speakers?

    Someone must be using the 410. Sound off!
