Viewing topic "Firewire to Thunderbolt 3"

Hi all,

So, I’ve finally got around to setting up my proper studio. My new Mac is now up and running with Cubase Artist 9.5 and my trusty Motif XS is ready to work with it.


When I purchased the mac, I also purchased the FW to Thunderbolt converter, not realising that Thunderbolt 3 was different to 1/2.

I have read that the motif / Cubase play well together with the converter I have, but has anybody had any experience in chaining this converter to the Thunderbolt 2 to 3 one as well? It is getting expensive in converters and I want to gauge whether it is likely to work or not before shelling out the money!

Has anybody got a motif running firewire into one of the newer macs? I am aware you can buy expensive thunderbolt 3 hubs, but I’d rather not do this.
