>FP10 10x10 FireWire Recording Interface
The PreSonus FP10 FireWire recording interface (formerly known as the FirePod) is a complete 24-bit/96kHz recording system combining 8 high-quality PreSonus XMAX microphone preamplifiers with 24-bit/96kHz analog to digital conversion. The FP10 interface comes with the Studio One Artist music creation and production software which has the same platform and intuitive interface as Studio One Pro but with an unlimited track count. It also has S/PDIF and MIDI inputs and outputs for convenient and compact, professional-quality, no-hassle recording. It also works with Mac OS X and Windows XP, Vista, and 7.
XMAX Class A preamps
The FP10's XMAX Class A preamps are custom-designed by PreSonus. They run on power rails of 30V with no op amps, and are always in an "on" state for zero crossover distortion. This allows them to deliver high headroom with low-noise sonic performance, wide dynamic range, wide frequency range, and, most importantly, musicality and transparency. This gives you smooth highs, solid, deep lows, without losing everything in between. It's perfect for recording diverse sources. 8 potentiometers are on the front panel to easily control the input level of each preamplifier.
Ins and Outs
Inputs 1 and 2 of the FP10 interface can be switched between microphone or instrument level while inputs 3 through 8 can be switched between microphone or line input. Phantom power (+48V) is available on every channel in groups of 4. Channels 1 and 2 feature fully balanced send and return TRS connectors on the rear of the rugged metal chassis for inserting outboard dynamics, EQ, and effects processors. There are 8 balanced TRS line outputs, 2 balanced TRS MAIN outputs, and CUE outputs for addtional monitoring. Using a stereo headphone output on the front panel, as well as mix control to balance monitoring levels between mixed input and main output signals, zero-latency monitoring is achieved. 2 channels of SPDIF input and output as well as MIDI input and output are also included. 2 FireWire ports make it possible to daisy-chain multiple FP10's together creating the possibility for adding additional inputs and outputs (with mic preamps) to your system.
Studio One Artist”Plus: Gigabytes of 3rd Party Resources

Comments about PreSonus FP10 Recording Package:
I was having second thoughts on buying this recording set, but when i installed it and tried it out the sound i got from the presonus firewire was amazing, it really does kill the annoying noise most guitars make. The microphones give very nice detail, recording high frequencies, basically make it easier to manipulate the sound and get it to sound how you like. The fostex monitors have a little fabric details youll have to fix to actually get studio sound. Youll need to fix the subs so the air coming out wont bump up and down and just come straight out, a little playdough will do if you dont want to spend much. Bottom line, im glad i chose this package, as long as your creative and know how to manipulate sound, as in erase frequencies and all that, this package is AMAZING!
