m-audio firewire audiofile 4in/6out 2496 audio interface


TRIBE Promoter
I've had this sound card for years! It's solid. I just don't have a firewire output on my current setup anymore so this has been sitting unused for some time. Includes aftermarket 12v power adapter (it didn't come with one) for those who's firewire output won't give it enough juice. Inclused firewire cable.

Product Description
