  1. Anyone ever heard of this make?

    I was looking at thier mic pre and para-EQ

    But cant find much info on them.

    All help appreciated, cheers :)
     
  2. They are a good brand with some great gear. They have entry level stuff, and pro level.

  3. even their entry level stuff will get you pro results. I used to own their tube mic pre and currently record to my mac book pro using their firebox FW interface.

    They make a nice compressor - BlueMax.
     
  5. Here are some live recordings I made last year of the Alan Rowe Trio at The Acton Jazz Cafe:

    Rhythm Changes

    There is no > Love

    Alone Together (Solo & 4s)

    (these are large-ish to try and preserve fidelity…)

    The pre-amps were Presonus MP-20, and the compressors were Presonus ACP-22. I've used that set up for a number of recordings and found them to be quite good.

  6. Cheers for the help guys.

    I think im going to have to look further into thier compressor, mic-pre and parametric EQ.

    I was also looking at the FirePod recording system, which, while excessive for what i need, does look pretty cool :)

    And cheers for the songs Wil, shall give them a listen now!

    I'm seriously considering dumping my Tascam in favor of the Firepod. I would like to get a better handle on the kind of power necessary (in a PC) to really utilize the Cubase LE that it ships with before taking the plunge though.

    FWIW - I use a Presonus Headphone distribution box in my studio space and it does a more than adequate job for nominal investment. Nicely built. Clean and quiet.

    I just picked up a firebox - I plan on doing some recording with it soon, hopefully I will be able to post the results.

    Doing a search for "presonus firepod" should give plenty of results.
