The FireStudio Project from Presonus is a complete computer recording solution for both the Mac and Windows based computer. The system comprises a 10 input/10 output FireWire interface with 8 Class A preamps, control software, and stereo S/PDIF input and output.
Geared towards the professional project studio, live sound recording or live performance, the system provides high quality audio, along with a great deal of flexibility. The FireControl Mixer/Router software can send up to five individual mixes to different musicians during recording, allowing each band member to have a custom headphone mix.
The first two inputs can be used as instrument inputs. These two channels are also fitted with dedicated sends and returns, for inserting outboard hardware processors, such as compressors or EQ. Three-segment LED input metering is available on all analog channels.
The interface is bundled with the Studio One Artist DAW software for Mac OS X, and Windows and includes 30 PreSonus Native Effects plug-ins, 5 virtual instruments, third-party loops, and the DAW software.
