I use a FPS10 in my live rig and want to know if I daisy chain a V-Fire from it will it give me 8 more inputs? I am using a MBP w/ OSX 10.6.4 and am considering a Roland XV5080 but would like to use the RBUS out.

I think the FP10 and V-Fire use a different driver base. Unless I'm mistaken the FP10 is Universal Control based and the V-Fire is the previous driver (name escapes me at the moment). They are not compatible with each other to plu up your inputs.

Also, if I remember correctly, the V-Fire drivers are only supported up to Mac OSX 10.4.1. If you're running Leopard or higher it will not connect.

My advice and suggestions should never be considered advice or suggestions. These are mostly insane ramblings of a poor aircraft mechanic who can, strangely enough, still hear.

Hello,

They are not compatible, therefore they cannot be daisy chained.

Best,

The FP10 is class compliant on a Mac, the VFire requires a driver that is only compatible with OSX 10.4. You could use the two together on a 10.4 system using Aggregate Devices, but this is not a PreSonus technology, it's a feature in the Apple OS.
