Roland Edirol FA-66: FireWire Audio Interface With Mac OSX

The FA- 66’s metal case is robust enough to withstand a beating and fuss-free operation ensures it won’t get in the way of the creative flow. The FA was accompanied by two FireWire cables, but they were and Mac users will appreciate the FA- 66’s plug-and-play capability – it uses the standard Apple FireWire driver, so you can hook it up and start recording. Wdirol thanks for pointing this out for future readers.

Then I walked in to an Edidol reseller and asked for a decent FireWire cable third used during this scene.

You’ll need a six-pin connection to power the device from the FireWire bus, but a mains adaptor is included if you have a four-pin. Posted on Sep 10, I read somewhere that not-so-good cables can cause the FireWire-ports safety fuse to go off and mess up the bus, or in my case, the whole computer. I checked from System Preferences and it had disappeared from there, only built-in audio in the menu. The device is known to use Core Audio driver so no additional installations were needed.


I need to get this thing working and I’m starting to panic Short explanation, in case someone faces the same problem in future: So I did what seemed like a good idea and shut the computer down and removed the AC adaptor and battery and let the fa6 “cool down” for an hour or so.

Edirol FA FireWire Audio Interface not… – Apple Community

All-access eeirol interviews, in-depth gear reviews, essential production tutorials and much more. Since I found none, I decided to buy. It think I got this covered! I have a major problem: I tried re-connecting the device but nothing happened for a while and suddenly after 15 minutes or so, the computer found the device again. So it must be the Macbook Pro or the ports?

Once again device worked fine for the first two minutes but then the real problems started: It would ideally suit roving songsmiths, as well as those seeking a high-quality, computer-based field recorder in order to collect real-world ambiences and other sounds. I feel I have tried every possible combination already But soon the same pattern repeated.


User profile for user: I bought one and tried it right there at the store. Reading some of the forums, I figured my problem might be cable-related. So if you type audio in your spotlight click ediro, audio MIDI setup and make sure all devices are edirrol the same sample rate you should not have this problem again well I haven’t yet anyway.

Edirol FA review | MusicRadar

The FA is a 6-channel portable FireWire audio interface designed with the mobile recording and performance professional in mind. And it’s not even supposed to be supported for other than intel Macs!

I tried both and got same results. Apple Mac OS X You da66 power the interface both by bus or by a DC adapter. All this was repeated with numerous restarts and logouts and whatnot.
