FA-101: FireWire Audio Interface

Features

The FA-101 is a feature-packed 10x10 audio interface that can handle a full 10 channels of input/output at 24-bit/96kHz. Record and monitor all 10 channels simultaneously in full duplex. Phenomenal audio power for the studio musician! In addition, the FA-101 offers 6-channel recording and playback at 24-bit/192kHz for performance at DVD-A quality.

  • 10x10 24-bit/96kHz audio performance
  • 6x6 24-bit/192kHz audio performance
  • Firewire bus-powered
  • Direct monitoring
  • Low-latency driver support
  • Native Support in Mac OS X (10.3.4 or later)
  • 2x phantom-powered mic preamps
  • 8x8 balanced analog I/O
  • S/PDIF optical I/O
  • MIDI I/O
The portable musician will love the FA-101, which draws its power completely from the Firewire bus — there's no need for an electrical hookup. At an event, all of the band's hardware can be routed through the FA-101 to output to monitors and, at the same time, the show can be recorded. During the break, CDs can be burned to sell on the spot. The Performance DJ will rely on the FA-101’s rugged metal chassis for reliable, club-tough operation. Back at home, the FA-101 will return as the centerpiece to the home studio.

Because of the FA-101’s ability to supply ample simultaneous inputs, the interface is perfect for practically any portable audio application. Portability with no limitation means you'll be able to take the FA-101 to any kind of performance.

The two phantom-powered XLR/TRS combo jacks offer premium mic preamps for high-quality recording. The back of the FA-101 hosts a number of 1/4" TRS balanced inputs & outputs: six inputs and eight outputs in all. The front-mounted S/PDIF optical I/Os transfer audio to and from other digital devices. The built-in MIDI interface allows a synthesizer or controller keyboard to be connected to the FA-101 for sequencing directly into a software program.

If you’re looking for an audio interface capable of simultaneous multi-channel recording on your computer at the highest quality, put the Edirol FA-101 at the top of your list.
