That's great news.

I bought one S/hand and had awful trouble getting it to stay connected (time out issues).
Had the Texas firewire cards etc but still issues.
Most of it was after i had loaded up the new drivers (and new GUi).
To be honest there was so much "pain" going on with it i kinda forgot if it was ever working or not.
Had about 10 emails with focusrite (who were quick to respond and very helpful). Did all sorts.Latency changes.... man!! i learned so much about my system. But no joy. They mentioned the Nvidia chipset in my M/board being a likely candidate

AMD Dual core 64
Asus Mboard with Nvidia chipset.

Eventually i unplugged it and put it away.... i was gutted.
But then i decided to change my M/board. Did this but still had issues.

So i searched and searched for the old drivers (for some reason the CD i had with it would never load them again ???)
I found a Focusrite beta driver page and loaded up the last one prior to the GUI change.

OMG!!! it worked.
Not sure if it was a combination of new chipset and new driver but it works.

I love it.
The Old classic Neve Eq's are great.
What i do find tho is everything is quite subtle. If i do even small changes on my stock eq's you hear change. With , most of what's loaded into, the LM it's a much subtle and less agressive change. (you would say more musical?)
Is that the quality of the original unit coming through.
My experience with hardware is ...er Nil so it's all a new experience to me.

Anyway good to hear some of us have persevered and are enjoying the unit.
