It has MIDI, S/PDIF, word clock, and ADAT (dual SMUX) I/O plus a 36x18 DSP matrix routing mixer. Combined with the speaker volume and mix control of the Monitor Station Remote (MSR), it gives your studio advanced digital capabilities. Up to three FireStudio's can be daisy-chained giving you up to 54 inputs and outputs.
