Never even heard of this before today. I'm looking into getting an audio interface so I can record music to my laptop. USB ones exist but they're not the kinda quality I'm looking for really. If I was to buy a FireWire one and get a FireWire-USB adaptor would it record at the speed of FireWire or USB?

Kinda confusing I know but someone may know something about it Smile

wow, welcome to Earth. Firewire is like a bazillion years old.

USB 2.0 is 480 mbit/s
USB3 is 3200 mbit/s

FireWire aka FW400 is 400 mbit/s
FW800 and FW1600 are ... you guessed it.

There is no USB to FW adapter. There is a PCI host adapter with FW ports.

It's pretty much obsolete, there are tons of quality USB ADCs.

Most DV cameras come with firewire and it's an Apple creation.

No good to me then really, but USB 2.0 is way fast enough for what I wanna do.

Blackshark I was expecting a genuine product haha. Lold at the ending though.
