A Versatile Solution for Small Studios
If youre like many recording musicians, your studio relies on software effects and a few hardware devices. You need a versatile recording interface with great sound and enough analog inputs and outputs to mic a large drum kit or a small band. We have two words for you: FireStudio Project.
The FireStudio Projects front panel features six mic/line inputs and two mic/instrument inputs, each with high-headroom, sweet-sounding XMAX Class A solid-state preamps. Thats easily enough for a small project studio. The two mic/instrument channels even have insert loops so you can add outboard effects.
The FireStudio Project's rear panel sports eight General Purpose outputs and a pair of left/right Main outputs. all on balanced, ¼-inch TRS jacks. The audio source for the Main outputs is the same as that of General Purpose outputs 1 and 2 (DAW Playback 1 and 2, by default). The difference is that the output level of the Main outputs is controlled by the FireStudio Project's front-panel Main volume knob.
Need digital I/O? No problem: FireStudio Project includes stereo S/PDIF. Weve also included MIDI In and Out. In short, you get all of the connectivity you are likely to need.
Still, as you develop your recording rig, your I/O needs may grow. No problem: you can daisy-chain the FireStudio Project with a second FireStudio Project, or with any interface in the FireStudio family, for up to 52 inputs and outputs. With FireStudio-series interfaces, your rig can expand to match your growing needs.
