Not sure if this is right forum or not but I have a question about the FireWire capabilities of my Mackie Onyx 1640 mixer.

It sends 16 simultaneous outputs to the computer and the stereo bus back out to the mixer via the FireWire. The Onyx i series sends 16 out to the computer, 16 back to the mixer for analog mixing, and the stereo bus back to the computer in order for you to record your mix.

Is there a way that I could make my mixer do what the Onyx i series does? Either by changing the FireWire card in the mixer or by any other means?
Simply put, no. The 1640i was built with that in mind. I have the 1640, it'd be nice if it could but its just something they didn't think about when they built it.
