Apollo x6 (TB) with Firewire UAD-2 Quad Satellite


New Member
I read the compatibility page and it says this will work, but using two busses from my Mac (PCIe for the Apollo and Firewire for Satellite). So it should work when connecting both directly to the Mac.
Now comes the potential "problem": I have a 27 inch i7 Intel iMac that just has 2 USB-C connections. I use (all Apple) a USB-C to Tunderbold 2 adapter and then another adapter Thunderbold 2 to Firewire 800. Then a cable into the Quad Sattelite. But it doesn't show up in the console.

Am I missing something?
Is this tho adapters not working at all?
Anyone tried the same limbo dance?
