Some of you know that I had been fighting a losing battle - within attempts to develop a working relationship with my MotifXF/FW16e and laptop. It has turned out to be (very likely) that it had nothing to do with me - or the FW16e, but (rather) with a non-compatible FireWire card in my laptop. And this brings me to my very important question:
Is it possible to get an external sound card for a laptop? If so, could someone recommend one which could be effectively integrated with my FW16e?
