The Presonus FireStudio Project is a practical, user friendly, yet powerful member of the Presonus Fire Studio family and is an affordable solution for professional audio recording applications.
This powerful recording interface sports 8 XMAX super discrete Class A mic preamps, 8 line in and out, as well as two channels of SPDF digital in and out giving the Firestudio Studio Project 10 channels of simultaneous audio ins and outs. In combination with the complimentary Universal Control software, up to five individual monitor mixes can be sent with zero latency to the artists so that you can build a “More Me” cue system without the need for additional gear to be added to your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). Signal routing options are virtually limitless making this not only an incredibly versatile recording interface, but also a pseudo digital patching system for post tape signal routing.
The FireStudio Project can be daisy-chained with one or more FireStudio family units including: the FireStudio, FireStudio Project, FireStudio Tube, and FireStudio Mobile to expand your number of recording inputs and outputs. Presonus recommends no more than three units be the total number of units that can be daisy-chained depending on your computer’s processor speed, amount of RAM and computer configuration.
In addition to the superior mic preamps the Firestudio Projects A/D/A converters are equipped with rock solid JETPLL jitter reduction technology, which ensures the highest quality digital converter performance and crystal clear pristine audio at 24bit 96kz.
This is a great unit for a project-recording studio or for pod casting as well as a perfect solution for multi-track recording of live performances.
The FireStudio project comes with a DAW program developed specifically by Presonus called Studio One Artist. This software is bundled with gigs of third party software including Native Instruments Kore and Guitar Rig as well as a plethora of other native plugins and samples. Though Studio One Artist isn’t the only DAW the FireStudio Project is compatible with. The FireStudio is able to function just as well with top DAW software such as Apple Logic 9 and in a most recent, and quite exciting, development Digidesign Protools 9.
The Presonus FireStudio is the perfect piece of equipment for anyone looking to take his or her music production to the next level. The expandability options of daisy chaining multiple FireStudio units allows you to expand your system to keep up with a growing digital music technology while producing really professional sounding results.
