Is there a way to plug a Magma ExpressCard 34 to a EC34 to Thunderbolt adapter (such as the one from Sonnet)? Or is there a way to have a longer cable, longer than the 1.5 meter option, to connect a…Continue

I was using a MacBook Pro 15" 4,1 (Early 2008) just fine with a 4-slot Magma chassis housing an HD4 ProTools system, connected via ExpressCard 34. I just bought a new MacBook Pro 17" late 2011 8,3 in…Continue

"The Magma chassis will work fine but not the Pro Tools cards. They are not going to work at all because the Pro Tools PCI cards are not Thunderbolt compatible."

Magma PCI (not PCIe) ExpressCard 34 and Thunderbolt

Is there a way to plug a Magma ExpressCard 34 to a EC34 to Thunderbolt adapter (such as the one from Sonnet)? Or is there a way to have a longer cable, longer than the 1.5 meter option, to connect a 4 slot with ProTools PCI cards to a MacBook Pro 17 late 2011? I am not sure that those ExpressCard 34 to Thunderbolt adapters in the market will work with the EC34 with a Magma 4 slot PCI. Can someone confirm if any of these adapters/units work?See More
