        PreSonus FireStudio

        The FireStudio Project is a premium computer recording interface combining 8 Class A XMAX mic preamps, 24-bit/96kHz audio resolution, a zero-latency matrix DSP router/mixer, and the ProPak Software Suite. Great for professional studio recording, live recording, performance, podcasting and more, the PreSonus FireStudio Project is designed for flexibility and ultra-high sonic performance.

        Note:As of 5/26/09, you can make your FireStudio Project 64-bit compatible via a PreSonus web update.

        Based on the award-winning FP10 (formerly the FirePod) the FireStudio Project starts with eight PreSonus Class A XMAX microphone preamplifiers found in the FP10 and adds the following improvements:

        •Improved analog to digital converters (114dB dynamic range) for more headroom and cleaner sound
        •Improved syncronization with JetPLL (jitter elimination technology) for more accurate sound
        •FireControl Mixer/Router to send up to five separate zero-latency stereo mixes to musicians during recording
        •Three-segment LED input metering on all analog channels for instant audio feedback
        •Internal IEC-based power supply for easy portability and compatibility
        •ProPak v3 software suite with Studio One Artist music creation and production software which has the same platform and intuitive interface as Studio One Pro but with an unlimited track count., BFD Lite, Wave Arts Plug-ins, and more

        XMAX Class A Preamplifiers

        The FireStudio Project starts with eight custom-designed high-voltage, discrete, XMAX Class A microphone preamplifiers. PreSonus knows that your preamps are a key component in the sonic quality of your recordings. The job of a microphone preamplifier is to boost microphone level signals to line level so that the signal can be converted from analog to digital. This mic to line boost is generally a preamplification of over 400 times the voltage of the original mic level signal. This preamplification stage is one of the most important stages that the signal will go through before converted to digital, and is why a high performance preamplifier is important to achieving great results. A cheap off-the-shelf, op-amp type preamp found in most interfaces translates into thin, noisy, and harsh results. With the XMAX preamp you get full-sounding, true-to-life sonic performance to serve your music best.

        DICE II and JetPLL advanced platform technology
        The FireStudio Project is loaded with the ultra-powerful DICE II FireWire chipset delivering 10 channels of professional-quality 24-bit inputs and outputs simultaneously. The strength of the DICE II chip lies with its ability to easily handle high channel count at high bit-rate while minimizing latency and load on your computer.
        The synchronization of the FireStudio Project is handled by patented JetPLL jitter reduction technology. JetPLL incorporates noise shaping to virtually remove all audio band jitter. JetPLL ensures the highest converter performance possible, resulting in better stereo separation and clearer more transparent audio. JetPLL delivers ultra-fast locking to any digital format, through a wide range of frequencies and is extremely robust, and tolerant of wide variations in clock frequencies. JetPLL ensures near perfect clock performance when networking audio devices thus creating the most stable and robust synchronization to the computer and all devices synchronization with the FireStudio Project.

        FireControl—zero-latency DSP mixing and routing
        The FireStudio Project also includes the FireControl mixer/router: an 18x10 DSP-based application for flexible mixing and direct routing of any input to any output (including the headphone output) with zero latency. The FireControl software application lives between your FireStudio Project interface and your DAW software enabling the mixing and routing of input streams coming into your FireStudio Studio Project interface and playback stream coming from your DAW software. The FireControl is capable of creating up to five stereo mixes and then routing to the outputs of your FireStudio Project for headphone mixes and various aux sends. It allows you to provide everyone in the band with a custom mix.

        Also, the FireStudio Project is loaded with internal flash memory so that all FireControl settings are saved and recalled in the FireStudio Project during power off/on. This allows you to configure your FireStudio as a standalone device, without being connected to a computer for uses such as a submixer, A/D and D/A-converter, headphone mixer, format converter, instrument, or microphone preamplifier.

            Had my eye on this package for quite some time. Glad I finally bought it. Presonus is a great brand all around, I'd highly suggest this if you are planning to lay down quality tracks. As with any recording, 'garbage in, garbage out'. Spending a little time tweaking and experimenting with the presonus firestudio project will go a long way. Already got some great stuff laid down.

              Comments about PreSonus Firestudio Project Recording Package:

              The Presonus interface is the star of this package. I purchased a firewire card using the recommended chipset, and have had absolutely no issues recording at 24 bit depth at 96 K. The sound is amazing.

              The microphones are also surprisingly good for the price, particularly the 991. The very first recording I did with my acoustic guitar convinced me that I'd bought the right equipment. Buy a pop filter for the vocal mic.

              The studio monitors are fine. I suspect someone with great ears and advanced mixing skills would eventually want to upgrade them, but I'm perfectly happy with them for now.

              The included accessories (cables, stands) work well - no frills, but they get the job done.

                Comments about PreSonus Firestudio Project Recording Package:

                After doing plenty of research I decided to purchase this package. The deal was just too good to pass up and with all of the great reviews it was a done deal. Thanks to fast shipping I got it in a couple of days and set it up easily. It has everything you need to get started.

                The interface is brilliant, the sound is flawless and with a 8 inputs you can easily record an entire band in one take.
                The microphone package is also a perfect starter. One of my friends brought it over and we recorded some stuff with it. The 991 is a perfect mic for recording guitars or overheads and the 990 is outstanding vocal mic.
                The speakers aren't amazing but they are good. They give a clear sound and no excess fuzz. Just wish they produced a slightly bolder sound but nonetheless and great addition to the package.
                The cables are all cheap, but so far no problems with them.

                I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to get started in recording.

                A little word of advice! Make sure you check your computer specs with the interface and make sure you have what you need to make it work properly, then you'll be fine. The interface comes with a firewire 400 cable and I had to get a 400/800 firewire cable to connect to my mac.

                Comments about PreSonus Firestudio Project Recording Package:

                I bought the presonus firestudio project 2 weeks ago and it still will not work properly. The tech support has you jump through hoops. Carefully read the presonus list of incompatable chips sets. Even with modifications 2 weeks later I am waiting on tech support with Studio one failures.

                Don't get this if you're using an HP

                Comments about PreSonus Firestudio Project Recording Package:

                So when I bought this I encountered what seems to be a universal problem with HP laptops and Presonus firewire interfaces. They are not compatible! This information is deeply buried in the web so think of this as a fair warning. HOWEVER, this is a great setup if you have the right laptop to plug it into. You absolutely cannot beat the value of this package.

                Comments about PreSonus Firestudio Project Recording Package:

                This is a great package for anyone looking to start up a home studio. the speakers are decent, better than computer speakers. the MXL mic's have been great for me. The presonus fire studio is a great tool. 8 channels makes recording a full drum set a sinch. this was well worth the money if you ask me.
