My Review

When looking into interfaces for my home studio, I auditioned several different manufacturers. After many hours of reading reviews, video overviews, and a lot of hands on, I decided on the Presonus Firestudio Project. 

Being that this was for home studio purposes, I didn’t require a ton of inputs, but it’s nice to know that I have 8 if needed. In the price range, ($399 MSRP) I haven’t found anything that compares. The Firestudio Project has 8 solid preamps built into the interface, firewire connectivity for low-latency and daisy-chaining capability, great conversion, and it comes bundled with Presonus’ very own DAW, Studio One. Now, while there are 2 steps above the Artist version of the software (Producer and Professional), Artist allows for plenty functionality to get you started. 

This interface is well built. Very sturdy construction for those who tend to be a little less delicate with their equipment (you know who you are). This is a 1U rackmountable device, which is a space saver for those who love their hardware. The Firestudio Project also has I/Os for MIDI and S/PDIF for further functionality and expansion. 

All-in-all, amazing product for the price. If you’re looking for a solid interface on a budget, look no further.
