I made a 1 rack space dual IDE bay firewire enclosure for about  
$120.  I've used it with much success for sessions with more than 16  
tracks.  Also, I've used a second IDE bus to record 16 tracks  
simultaneously on a live gig.  (4-hours non stop 16 tracks using OSX  
on a G4 450 with a MOTU 2408 and PCI 324 card as the interface.)   
Ardour + OSX + firewire = rock solid.

Out of curiosity, is anyone here using ardour with external drive
enclosures using firewire back to your computer?  If so, is it a single
drive, RAID, or JBOD?  I'm mainly looking for feedback from people doing
higher track-count work, i.e. 16+ simultaneous tracks.

Option 2 is to pipe my optical outs into something like an Alesis  
HD24 for
the initial tracking of the project, then pull the tracks into Ardour  
the mix and post work.
