Well, I really got fed up of all the hassles of "trying" to record to PC using the M-Audio Firewire Solo. I was kinda biased anyway since I hate computers so much when they don't work as claimed. So, I sold the Firewire Solo and bought the very nice and user friendly Fostex MR8-HD multitracker. Wow, so much fun without even one tiny headache. This thing is great. Along with the help of a Boss DR-3 drum machine and a PODxt I've been recording late into the night and life is good.
