PreSonus FireStudio
Comprehensive connectivity, I bought it to replace my very old Yamaha DSP 2416.

UTILIZATION

First rub. The drivers are an absolute nullity. Absolutely useless in a professional environment. Yet, after years on my 2416 I was accustomed to DSP drivers whose development was abandoned. But here, congratulations! Of regular updates, of course, but do not solve anything.

So using the Firestudio can be defined as a random experiment. One day it works, then it's a hassle for 1 week. Yet I have tried everything including an OS installation. Nothing to do.

When it works the latency is quite low.

GETTING STARTED

The installation can be a nightmare if the drivers you play tricks. Especially when you make an update to the firmware of the FPGA.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 1 year and every day I tell myself that I should sell this stuff.

What I like least
1) catastrophic drivers (in Windows I said, I know for MacOSX)
2) the manufacturing quality is not terrible, after a year and a half use half of the knobs has vied spit up off the sound. Yet this device has not left my studio.

What I like most
Characteristics, connectors, neutral preamps

With experience, I would do certainly not the choice. Besides, I think I will stay away as much as possible of any audio product using a Firewire port in favor of a PCI solution.

Entries The number and d'avoir need a "big machine" Studio motivated my choice for this interface.
I have an iMac with 4GB of Ram and I use Logic Pro Studio.
I play semi-pro music.
I have a big mixer and a lot of keyboards, guitars and basses.

USE

I CORRECTED EVERYTHING I SAID. EXTREMELY UNSTABLE INTERFACE AND VERY POOR QUALITY OF DRIVERS

IMPLEMENTATION

CATASTROPHIC INSTALLATION !!!!

NOTICE GLOBAL

STAY AWAY, HE PREFER THE maudio PROFIRE 2626 EXTREMELY STABLE AND WITH ITS THOUSAND TIMES BETTER.
BRIEF! THE FIRESTUDIO PRESONUS IS FUIRE-

GETTING STARTED

- I bought a card FireStudio Project in October 2007. like the whole series did not work, they'll have replaced it with a FireStudio. I say not bad! Today the problem is that in June it does not work.
history: a driver version: does not work. version 2: some balbuciements, three audio version appears with cracks and bugs and twelve o'clock drivers appear with names and ghostly walk when they want, and the fourth phase: beta tested now in leopard mac mini with 25 June: we see the sound but it never leaves the card and the drivers seem to work twelve o'clock, but they are invisible in the preferences and as there is no sound coming out, difficult to speak of its quality. what about ......... !
- Drivers are updated but do not correct
_ Cubase 4 and Logic 7
-Latency 15 ms average buffer

OVERALL OPINION

- Used from October
- I have a RME Multiface has always worked perfectly from the start and with which I can compare the FireStudio. I purchased the FireStudio to try with my mac mini rack for concerts because the Multiface can be connected by firewire.
- Apparently good value if it worked.
- With experience: I do not buy anything in my life from PreSonus, too disgusted ...
