I just purchased a new XPS laptop and the D3100 docking station. I need to connect a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 that has a 6 pin Firewire 400 out.
Should I connect directly to the XPS via the Thunderbolt port using the Apple sold Thunderbolt to FIrewire adapter?
Is there a way for me to connect with the dock via the Thunderbolt compatible USB 3 ports?
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
I am able to connect to my Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 using 3 items and daisy chaining them together.
I have never purchased an Apple product and was hurt to have to buy the Apple adapter. I was even more hurt by the pricetag of the Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) that is apprently only sold by one company.
Nonetheless the connection so far has worked great and has no latency. I obviously need to upgrade to an audio interface that has nativeThunderbolt output.
Would it have been possible doing the same using the Apple thunderbolt 3 to thunderbolt 2 adapter or do we absolutely need the startech adapter ?
