This is the first thread I've started. So Hi all. Got a question about firewire. I have searched on this and couldn't find anything. How much of a setback is having only a four pin firewire connection on the pc or laptop? I'm looking at a mackie onyx 1640 and I assume it uses a 6 pin connection. Am I correct in this? Is there an adaptor to go from 4 to 6? It would be safe to assume that 6 pins can transmit more info faster than 4? Aren't I full of assumptions? I hope a couple of them are wrong.
