I have a Motu 896HD which only has firewire connections.
That is the main reason I need a firewire port.
I am going to get an 896mk3 which has firewire and usb, but I'm still not sure if I can daisy chain the two devices together with firewire, and then connect the mk3 to my computer with usb, if I'll be able to access the HD through the Mk3.
And I am not sure if Motu can even answer that. I am going to ask them though.
