Recording and Production in the News
Thunderbolt™ solution for Prism Sound Orpheus and ADA-8XR interfacesCambridge, UK: The recent addition of the new Thunderbolt I/O connection to Apple Mac computers means data can be transferred faster than ever - 10Gbps of bidirectional throughput plus a separate display bus.
Lightning fast speed and huge bandwidth has meant Thunderbolt can accommodate nearly any existing connection to a variety of external devices with the necessary adapter, including Prism Sound FireWire audio interfaces Orpheus and ADA-8XR.
We have successfully tested Orpheus with a Sonnet Thunderbolt to ExpressCard and ExpressCard to Firewire800 adaptor combination with Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2. It passed with flying colours and will allow Prism Sound FireWire interface users to maintain the same software control and functionality they are currently benefiting from through the FireWire 800 and 400 connection.
Any Apple Mac sporting the new Thunderbolt connection (currently the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Mini) will be able to connect to our Orpheus and FireWire ADA-8XR including the latest MacBook Air, which was previously lacking any connection above USB 2.0 speed.
MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Mini users will benefit from an extra bus through the Thunderbolt connection meaning external Hard Drives and other FireWire devices can be used simultaneously with the Prism Sound Orpheus and ADA-8XR FireWire interfaces.
FireWire, Thunderbolt and the development of standalone software means native audio production has never been more popular providing the perfect solution for users requiring the freedom of flexibility between hardware and software combinations, expandability through cascading multiple units and devices via the convenience of a single connection.

UPDATE 24 August 2012
Apple's Thunderbolt to FireWire adaptors have now appeared on the Apple store and they're in stock (24 Aug 2012) and reasonably priced: US Apple store page, UK Apple store page. Note that they state that OS X v10.7.4 or later is required. In addition, Belkin have announced their Thunderbolt Express Dock which incorporates (amongst other things) a FireWire 800 port. No doubt there'll be more adaptors and lower prices in the weeks and months ahead.
