Question about Mackie Onyx 1640i Mixer
I bought this mixer and did the plug and play with firewire. Its not being recognized by my Imac 10.6.8 snow leopard or leopard. Using logic 9 my m-audio project mix interface with a presonus digimax fs pre-amp is recognized . I have 16 channels of in and out with those but not 32 with the firewire daisy-chain or all three. Is it true that mackie 1640i does not work with leopard or snow leopard? HELP PLEASE. I have an IMAC 10.6.8 , snow leopard, logic pro 9.

Likely you haven't got the levels set properly. Start with the trim controls (head end gain) Make sure you are not clipping there. Also verify you aren't overdriving your amps. Remember that the outs are line level, not mic level so the gain oof following equipment needs to be set for line level.
ALWAYS USE balanced audio line from this unit... either XLR or TRS type cables. ALWAYS power ALL interconnected equipment from teh same receptacle or source to avoid ground bounce damage to circuitry. You don't say what you are using to record with. Make sure it has balanced inputs. For instance, connecting cables from this to the audio input jack of a PC which is unbalanced would be a disaster in audio quality. There would be a problem of levels and the unbalanced thing... You haven't given us enough information of your hardware configuration to analyze the problem more than what I have said here.
