Hey Guys, recently picked up a H8000FW, been using it as my main Audio Device/Effects Box. I've had it a week, but am getting the hang of it. I think there is a bug in the new OS. I mainly use Mac OS X 10.7.3, but do have Windows 7 on this computer as well.
For me Firewire2 is not working on 5.6B1, it is working on 5.5. I explain the routing setup/Ableton Live Setup here:
I've never used Dropbox for this purposes before so don't know if it'll work.
The link contains two files. The PDF files shows the routing setup and the outputs screenshots of Live, you can see the meters toggling in 5.5 but 1 set of meters isn't toggling in 5.6B1. The is 13/14 which corresponds to Firewire2 in the routing.
I've also included the Live Project in the subsequent folders.
If you are running Mac OS X 10.7.3 and 5.6B, let me know if your Firewire2 is working.
