Due to no Firewire connections on my new Windows 10, 64-bit PC, I need to find a good USB replacement for my FireStudio Mobile.

The 2 Mic-Instrument inputs on the front and 6 Line inputs on the back of my FireStudio Mobile worked perfect for my needs. I don't see anything comparable in the currently available Audio Interfaces from Presonus, unless I go to much higher end products with features and complexity I just don't need or want.

I tried a Sonnet Tango 800 PCIe Firewire card with and without the 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller (Legacy) driver but couldn't get the FireStudio Mobile to work.

Any audio interfaces suggestions for me to check out? I've got USB 2.0 & USB 3.0 available from my new PC but need a minimum of 2 Mic-Instrument inputs and 6 Line inputs.

Did a lot of searching but ended up ordering the PreSonus Studio 1810. Probably more than I need but should do everything I need and more. :)
