SNAMM02:Presonus FIREstation Rings A Few Bells

Quality pre’s and more at great price      24/07/02

FIREstation – tasty hardware
Presonus were showing their range of hi-quality audio interfaces with pride of place going to the soon to be released new FIREstation. Connecting to your host computer, as one would expect via the Firewire (IE1394) interface, the unit provides 8 I/Os in a number of formats as well as working as a standalone unit to convert to and from ADAT format. Not only that but you can use the FIREstation as an 8 into 2 line mixer. The FIREstation uses Yamaha’s firewire protocol mLAN allowing connection to multiple devices. It also gives you a MIDI in and out and S/PDIF via a 9-pin D-type breakout cable (included). Another nice touch is the inserts for mic channels 1+2 making pre digitising processing via analog outboard a doddle. FIREstation Features
