Hi Philt80,

Sounds like you’ve got a good internal setup with the 2 drives, are they on the same bus perhaps? I don’t know if it’s comparable, but, I tried to record a clients gig,used an external USB2 drive and looped the Qu’s connection through the drive, then to the Mac. Turned out to be big no-no as it’d continously drop out of record, and that was with just 8 tracks. Got a new Firewire drive, (7200 RPM) ran a test with that (FW800)connected, reconnected the mixer via usb. Did a test record in this way, that firewire and USB are 2 different busses, and that seemed to be the fix. I recorded 18 tracks to Protools on the FW external, for 2 1/2 hours and never dropped out of record. I think total session size was about 30-35 gigs if I remember right. Hope this info helps you somewhat, just trying to help!
