I can confirm a FW hard drive works with this chain o apple adapters and a tBP.
Thanks, so we can say it 'basically' works (If the driver likes it is a different thing).

Hi everybody,

yes, some clarification is at hand.
1. I meant using only the original Apple Adapters.

2. For my purpose it's a Mytek 192 DSD DAC audio interface with a combined FW/Thunderbolt driver that is confimed to work with the TB2-FW adapter and recent macOS. So I am covered for now.

But the thing is, my possibly next Mac (mini) won't have TB2 anymore.

The Mytek has a ton of options FW, USB, AES, Optical. I will just go in from the Mac into the Mytek via Optical S/P DIF and I am never mastering beyond 96kHz or do any DSD soon. USB1 is Class Compliant. But USB2/FW need drivers.

It appears they are still running it, although it's 40% now: Parallels to Fusion Discount

Just wanted to tell that I jumped boat and bought Fusioon 10.
There is still the Crossgrade offer for Paralles which gave me 60% obviously, maybe for Black Friday, so for $32 (+ $3 tax) ist was a total no-brainer.

Also since it's Black Friday, they give you 30% off anyway, so Fusion 10 goes for $55.

Aweseome, Thanks, Frost!! :D
