From what I've read about mLAN, it seems like one of the best failed tech endeavors since Betamax.
I'm curious: if I was to have two Motif XFs for example and connect them together via IEE1394 while ensuring that they operate in mLAN mode rather than "FW mode", what sort of unique mischief might I be capable of exploring for the fun of it? Could the two Motifs exchange audio digitally without involving a computer in between?
Maybe would an earlier model Motif be better for exploring the unique character of mLAN mode? I know that mLAN was essentially entirely phased out by the time the XF came around, with the XS witnessing the death knell as-it-happened, but I don't know if its mLAN capabilities were any different from the ES (or XS).
How about connecting one Motif to two PCs simultaneously?
Does anyone around here have any first-hand experience with using mLAN as originally envisioned: going beyond a single computer connected to a single mLAN device?
