At the top of its class. Had installation issues.

  • Summary: What a great product, overall. I upgraded from USB interface and there's definitely a difference in latency for the better. The knobs are sturdy and you can feel each click while turning. The set-up was what I had the most difficulty with. I use Logic Pro for my DAW and I wasn't getting any sound out at first. I checked my system and software preferences and both were defaulting to the PreSonus, so I wasn't sure what the issue was.

FireBox User for 3 years

  • Summary: Presonus retired the FireBox which I have used in my home studio for about 3 years. This FireStudio mobile is pretty much the same thing. + The sound quality from this unit is good. + The preamps are also good. + The phantom power works and I have used my Rode NT1A with this without a problem. + Chassis is made of metal - The knobs are flimsy - The FireWire connector(s) are easy to break. One of the ports on my FireBox broke. I have no idea how.

the best mobile audio unit available for the money

  • Summary: I love my Presonus Firestudio Mobile. It's got good preamps and they're pretty quiet. The setup was easy and the Studio One software works like a charm. Everything about this unit makes it a first choice for fast, easy recording. I like the firewire interface, they tend to be less jittery than USB. I also like the fact that the latency is not an issue. Everything records smoothly and accurately. I'm probably going to buy a second unit.

  • Summary: ... it's working quite well. But for months at the beginning it would disconnect itself and I was forced to reboot to make it work (I use it with a IMAC).

Best mobile firewire interface!

Andrew Henderson "Lost in Sound", amazon.com

  • Summary: I've really enjoyed this unit for times when I'm on the go. I haven't used it in my studio yet, but I've done several live recordings with it, some with a pair of Earthworks SR25 mics and it was CRYSTAL CLEAR! I've been a fan of the XMAX preamps (for budget preamps) for a while, but wasn't convinced they could put a pair in a bus-powered interface AND provide phantom power until I used it. Sounds great!

Good but noisy pre-amp

Jeffrey D. Doan, amazon.com
3 November 2009
  • Summary: I have had this one for 3 weeks now, and have been using it for recording since. I'm using it to replace the Mackie Onyx Satellite I have (which doesn't work with Win Vista) in my home studio. The first thing I "must" notice was the 4 rubber feet at the bottom of the unit keep coming loose. Presonus didn't do a very good job gluing these to the unit. I got tired of sticking them back on and just leave them off, but that's harmless.

"Portable

  • Excerpt: The FireStudio is also very rugged, I took it everywhere and at most it only had a few scratches on it from taking it in and out of the bag but nothing else got messed up on it. It is very easy to set up and is pretty much a plug and play type of interface.
