Click on the "More Info" tab for
further details on the Firestudio Project

The Presonus FireStudio Project is a complete 24-bit/96K professional recording system combining eight Class A XMAX microphone preamplifiers, 24-bit/96k sample rate conversion, zero-latency matrix router mixer, and the PreSonus ProPak Software Suite featuring Presonus Studio 1 Artist, over 25 real-time plug-in effects (EQ’s, compressors, reverbs), and more than 2 GB of drum loops and samples.

Whether you need to record a live drum set, mic a guitar amp, or a complete band, the Presonus FireStudio Project is ready and more than able. With the new FireControl Mixer/Router you can send up to five individual mixes to different musicians during recording so that every band member can have a custom headphone mix.  

Based on the award-winning FP10(FirePod) the Presonus FireStudio Project starts with eight PreSonus Class A XMAX microphone preamplifiers found in the FP10(FirePod) and adds the folllowing improvements:
  • Improved analog to digital converters (114dB dynamic range)
  • Improved syncronization with JetPLL (jitter elimination technology)
  • 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
  • Internal IEC-based power supply
  • ProPak v3 software suite with Presonus Studio 1 Artist , BFD Lite, Wave Arts Plug-ins,
  • Tutorial DVD video and more.
  • NOW 64 BIT COMPATIBLE VIA WEB UPDATE
  • Add more inputs to your system by chaining a StudioLive or any Firestudio Family Interface via firewire
 
XMAX Class A Preamplifiers
The FireStudio Project starts with eight custom-designed high-voltage, discrete, XMAX Class A microphone preamplifiers. Many other companies offering recording interfaces add the cheapest possible microphone preamplifier as an afterthought to the interface.
PreSonus knows that the preamplifier is a key component in the sonic quality of a recording. 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 mic preamp that is found in most interfaces translates into thin, noisy and harsh results.

New Advanced Platform Technology - DICE II and JetPLL
The FireStudio Project is loaded with the new ultra powerful DICE II FireWire chipset delivering 10 channels of simultaneous inputs and outputs at professional-quality 24-bit. The strength of the DICE II chip lies with its ability to easilly 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 JetPLLTM jitter reduction technology. JetPLLTM incorporates noise shaping to virtually remove all audio band jitter.

JetPLLTM ensures the highest converter performance possible, resulting in better stereo separation and clearer more transparent audio. JetPLLTM 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. JetPLLTM 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.

      Comments about Presonus Firestudio Project Firewire Interface:

      I recently moved up from the Firepod. What a big improvment this is for me. The metering is sweet and the digital mixer is nice for sending everybody in my band a different headphone mix. Only thing - Cubase LE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!! Go with Logic or move up to the real Cubase.
