About this Product
This partially broken PreSonus Firepod does not include any software or accessories.
Condition: The firewire ports on this interface are bent and will not connect to a computer. The power switch on the back of the unit is missing, when plugged in the unit will remain powered on. Inputs 3, 4 , and 5 do not work. Sound only comes out of the main outputs when using channels 1, 2, 6, 7, or 8. This unit will still work as a stand alone, single channel mic preamp, or a preamp for combining the working channels into a single mix. For these reasons we are selling this unit AS IS. No returns will be accepted on this unit. Please see pictures for details on item condition.
We recommend checking with the manufacturer for the latest operating system and hardware compatibility before purchasing this item.
Product Information (For Working Units Only): 8 topnotch preamps matched to premium converters deliver the performance your music deserves! The PreSonus FirePod FireWire recording interface is a complete 24-bit/96kHz recording system combining 8 high-quality PreSonus XMAX microphone preamplifiers with 24-bit/96kHz analog to digital conversion.
XMAX Class A preamps - The FirePod'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. Eight potentiometers are on the front panel to easily control the input level of each preamplifier.
Ins and Outs - Inputs one and two of the FirePod interface can be switched between microphone or instrument level while inputs three through eight can be switched between microphone or line input. Phantom power (+48V) is available on every channel in groups of four. 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 additional 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/FirePod's together creating the possibility for adding additional inputs and outputs (with mic preamps) to your system.
