Help! Novice mac user trying to navigate around jungle of information and getting horribly lost! I recently bought a motu 828mk11 on the advice of staff at Turnkey to go with my new-ish g4 ( last of the dual boots) as I will have to be running logic and plug ins on os9 until the happy day when I can afford to replace everything with osX progs.

I was told that the Motu was compatible both with os9 and x, but find on scanning the manual that AudioDesk only supports osX drivers for midi. I therefore need to download drivers for os9 BUT I cannot get my connection to btinternet up and running in os9 as it does on osX ( though it shows up on the dock ). Is there a way of downloading the drivers for os9 via my internet connection on osX and then transferring them onto the os9 desktop? Or can someone suggest a way of overcoming the internet problem on os9??

What happens in OS 9? Are you disconnected after a while?

What kind of internet connection are you on? Cable or DSL, USB, Ethernetů etc.

Now you can download in OS X without problem for OS 9 wink.gif it's the same file system. The only thing not to do between OS 9 and X is using a firewire hard drive in both systems, it's a good way to loose data on it.

(I move the thread in a more proper area wink.gif no problemo wink.gif

The MIDI ports on 828 mk II will not work while using OS 9, it'll work on OS X only. huh.gif

Strange because the MOTU website states:
QUOTE
Firewire Audio Drivers/Consoles OS9

This install contains MAS and Firewire Drivers/Consoles for the 828, 896,
828mk2 and 896HD for OS9.

Unstuff with Expander version 7.03 or higher. Double-click installer and choose the installer option for your MOTU Firewire audio hardware.

So the 828-Mk-II should work just fine i OS-9.

However AudioDesk has NO MIDI capabilities.
You can ONLY record audio into AudioDesk.

If you have a dual boot system you can download OS-9 drivers in OS-X.
Reboot into OS-9 and install them in OS-9.

Just keep track of where you put your downloads.

The audio part of 828 mk II works fine on OS 9.
However you can't use the two MIDI ports on it.
It only works on OS X because the firewire cable handles both MIDI and audio to your computer.

On OS 9 you still need another MIDI interface and may need OMS or FreeMIDI (I've never used Logic.)
