PreSonus’ FireStudio Project interface combines an acclaimed FireWire recording system with a pristine 96 kHz sampling rate. With eight dual-purpose inputs and included +48V phantom power, the FireStudio Project can accommodate home and project studio recording sessions of diverse proportions. The FireStudio Project’s unique rack-mountable design adds an appealing degree of flexibility to this powerful interface.

A Versatile Solution for Small Studios

If you’re 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 Project’s front panel features six mic/line inputs and two mic/instrument inputs, each with high-headroom, sweet-sounding XMAX™ Class A solid-state preamps. That’s 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. We’ve 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.

Clear, Clean, and Complete

At PreSonus, delivering great sound is our primary focus. In addition to XMAX preamps, the FireStudio Project features high-definition, 24-bit digital converters that sample at up to 96 kHz and provide 114 dB dynamic range.

And with PreSonus’ lauded JetPLL™ jitter-elimination technology, you get the tightest, most reliable digital sync in the industry. Translated into plain English, you can rely on clear, clean audio with great imaging.

The FireStudio Project features an internal 18-input software mixer/router that allows you to set up to 5 cue mixes with zero latency. You can set up cue mixes in the included Universal Control control-panel software or in our amazing Studio One® Artist DAW software for Mac® and Windows®, which comes bundled free with all of our interfaces.

Combined with a FireStudio Project interface and your computer, Studio One Artist gives you virtually everything you need to record and mix a project.

Whether your focus is on studio recording, live-sound recording, podcasting, sound design, or all of the above, the FireStudio Project is your complete solution.
