I'm using an RME Multiface with Mac Powerbook laptop, IBM PC laptop and
Mac G5 studio machine. For the portables I stick a PCMCIA (Cardbus)
card into the machines and for the big machine I have the PCI adapter.
The Multiface is a break-out box with 16 analogue inputs and outputs,
which means 8 stereo channels in/out of your laptop. This opens up for
using Ableton Live as an advanced stage mixer (with external midi
control if you want), besides looping in the software. Both PCI and
PCMCIA are a little bit faster than firewire, which gives less latency
if you would like to play your live instrument with software real-time
All the best
