PreSonus FireStudio Tube

FireStudio Tube is a project studio nexus--connect a DAW-capable computer, a few mics, headphones and speakers and you're ready to record a room full of musicians anywhere. PreSonus uses innovations developed for the FireStudio, FireStudio Project, DigiMax 96, and D8 to make the FireStudio Tube their premier 24-bit/96kHz DAW Firewire audio interface.

FireStudio Tube allows for 16 channels of simultaneously record and playback using ten microphone pre-amps and six line level inputs. Up to six outputs are provided for up to five separate, zero-latency control room monitoring and headphone mixes--all accomplished using the included 16X10 FireControl mixer/router software.

The feature list is too long to fully list here and begins with two SuperChannels--class-A 12AX7 tube mic pre-amps with the ultra-fast VCA-based limiters from the DigiMax 96. I would use these for vocals, acoustic guitars or bass guitar recordings. For all the drums and guitars, the same eight class-A XMAX microphone pre-amps from the D8 work great while the six balanced TRS line inputs take care of any keyboard/sampler/turntable audio.
