Hi ...

I'm an owner of a second-hand PreSonus FireStudio Project ;

What I'd like to know ... if it's possible to connected this device to a Laptop, Tablet or a iPad, which do not have a Firewire port ...

I'm thinking of buying a cheap Firewire to USB adapter or a similar in cable form ...


Would this "trick" do the job ... ?

/ Toni .

No, it won't. I tried exactly this to hook it up to my laptop and it doesn't work. I did Google the reason, but it was a bit technical!

If you can replace a USB port in your laptop with a combination USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 port you can do it then. Although you still may have to purchase some additional hardware to convert FireWire to Thunderbolt.
