Presonus interfaces work best the the TI chipsets.
I used to use Garageband which is very easy to use but I simply could not figure out how to do some very simple things:
1) Invert the phase of one track (for bass drum and snare bottom)
2) Adjust the width of a stereo track
I'm now using cubase, which has a steep learning curve.
I don't even know at this point if the basic version of garage band will do that. It might be a feature if you upgrade for $79. (I life)
I will work with this until I find hard limits, then likely I will (as suggested) move up to logic 8.
The firewire chipset was likely sony, and really didn't work.
