Topic: FF 400 - macbook pro - temperature / fan issue
the fan of my MBP is getting ridiculously loud when plugging a FF 400, even with no audio applications running and CPU less than 2%. It is VERY annoying. This does not happen when using the MADIface, with audio active and several audio applications moderately drawing CPU. It is clearly related to the use of the firewire port. I googled a couple of threads out there and there seems to be an issue with audio devices that use the firewire port on the MBP and latest updates of the system. Except for the noise, everything else is working fine. I borrowed the FF400 from a friend to see if I would consider it as alternative to my MADIface but there is no chance for me to use the FF400 in this conditions.
MBP 6,1 Intel core i7, 2.66, 17", 8GB
FF400 driver version 2.93
Is this a know issue? What are the perspectives?
Thanks for your feedback
