USB 2.0 has plenty of capacity for the 18i20's IO.

As Sardi mentioned, driver support is the key. Both to support your older Mac, and for new OS's that come out should you upgrade in the future.


JoelG, may I ask regarding tracking.

I'm able to track 18 inputs with my003/DigimaxFS/SPDIF at 32 buffer at 48k.with a handful of effects.

What are you getting with the Focusrite/2626 ? Thanks.
