    Angry No ALT Monitor support for Console 2 FW

    I hate to sound so ungrateful in light of the huge update we just got but damn! I can't shake the huge feeling of disappointment with Console 2 for FW. I feel like I waited a year and a half in excitement for nothing and have to continue fiddling with workarounds.

    With all of the groundbreaking things the Apollo can do and all of the routing it can do, I just find it extremely hard to understand how something that seems so simple as re-routing monitor audio to another pair of outputs via the software is completely impossible on FW. It just makes absolutely no sense to me how something like this is tied to a specific connection type on the SAME DEVICE.

    This whole crippling of the FW protocol just feels like they are trying to kill the firewire line and force everyone to TB. This wouldn't be a big deal if replacing our cheese graters with a new comparable Mac Pro wasn't a minimum of a $4000 plus tax upgrade, which is not a worthy investment JUST to have Alt Mon.

    As if the nearly 2 YEAR delay for Console 2 isn't enough in itself, to be missing such a major feature just because of your connection type is absurd. Soooo frustrating! This feels worse than finding out that Halle Berry is really a man!

    Just venting!

    They completely omitted that functionality in the FW version. The setting isn't there. Smh!

    Don't have one any more. Had to sell my iPhone 7 to start saving up for a new Mac Pro and a TB expansion card!

    Think of all the dough you are saving on needless cell charges

    So is a used dbox out of the question if you are on FW ?
