The Presonus Fire Studio was an interface that for the first time I used at the School that I attended a year ago. They had a few of these in different rooms (mainly the second studio rooms and no the main ones). The Fire-studio seemed to work great and do exactly what it said it would do. There was nothing that really stood out with it though to make me want to go out and buy it for myself. It had enough ins and outs to power your whole band and record them all at the same time. That would be the only reason I would suggest someone get this is if they have drums recording into it and guitars and other instruments for a big session. But if your just a one or two microphone type of set up there is no purpose to have this.


I am not sure if the drivers where updated at all during the year I was using it. We recorded up to 4 or 5 tracks simultaneously without any problems, we actually used this interface to record into the “student” version of Pro tools and it worked just fine. I have heard that it was a pain in the butt trying to get pro tools to recognize and work with it though. But this isn’t something I have personally dealt with.


The Manual is extremely clear and well written, I had to use the manual several times when working on new project that would require different set ups. Each time I had to reference to the manual, it was easy to do and I got right to it without any issues.


My favorite part of working with the Fire Studio is how easy it was to record so many things at the same time instead of having to record one person/instruments take and then start over and record something else. We could just run right through our projects and assignments pretty quick. The sound quality (as long as you are using good mics) will be great and will give you nothing to complain about. I have tried a lot of other models of PreSonus interfaces and all of them seem to be great.
