Thinking about pairing these two up.
See signature for MacBook Pro specs.

Are there any known incompatibilities?

Biggest issue for most is using a firewire 800 to 400 converter that works well. I use this one with my MacBook Pro: ... B0000CDJPQ

I use a recent MacBook Pro and a 6' FW 800 to FW 400 cable from here... (less than $10) .... never had an issue that was cable related. During troubleshooting another problem I purchased the Steinberg "approved" Belkin cable. Way overpriced and made no difference to that issue (which turned out to be configuration related), so I returned it. Tried other cables too, all worked fine.

My MBP runs the 816 like a champ music setup I've ever had at my home studio!



BTW 2.66 GHZ Intel Core i7, 8 Gig RAM, OX 10.6.5, Cubase 5.5.1

Cubase 8.5, Nuendo 10, Cubasis ( gotta luv it ), Arturia Audio Fuse, OS 10.13.6, IMac Quad Core 3.2 GHz i7, 32GB RAM, Radeon Graphics 4GB
