5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By James Shannon Bussey on February 7, 2006
When these first came out I was somewhat sceptical of them. I had been using a stand alone recording system with a built in CD burner. Eventually I outgrew the recorder because you could only record 2 tracks simultaneously. Thus came the Firepod. I can say from experience that the Firepod is one of the best, if not "THE" best, firewire recording interface out there. It is by far the best recording interface for 600.00 dollars and under. I tried several and tested them before I settled with the Firepod, but I couldn't find any to match it. I should have listened to the numerous reviews in magazines and on the net.

It's not that I completely ignored the reviews but lately companies have made mixers with firewire recording interface. Phonic and Alesis are the two latest to come out with one. Neither comes close to the Firepod.

The Firepod has 8 of the new inputs that can be used for either XLR (microphone) or 1/4 (instrument) and all 8 channels can be recorded at the same time. Each channel has a built in mic-preamp, something Presonus is known for. Each channel has a gain control and that's it, which makes it very simple to use. On the back are numerous outputs. There are 8 individual outputs that can be routed to a mixer so each instrument can be individually controlled in case you wanted to record in a live environment. Also on the back are two outputs for powered studio monitors and / or a headphone amp. I also forgot to mention that there is one headphone input (1/4) on the front. The syncronizing software is very easy to instal and it is very easy to connect the Firepod to your PC.
