PreSonus introduced and demonstrated the all new FireStudio LightPipe and the new HP60 six channel headphone amplifier system at Musikmesse in Frankfurt this week.
The FireStudio LightPipe is a 24-bit/96k, 32-channel ADAT to FireWire recording system for Macintosh and Windows computers. The FireStudio LightPipe features JetPLLTM jitter elimination technology for ultra-tight digital synchronization, a 34×4 zero-latency monitor mixer, balanced TRS stereo analog outputs, word clock input/output, MIDI input/output and headphone output. The FireStudio LightPipe is a perfect recording solution for digital mixers and AD/DA converters including the PreSonus DigiMax FS 8-channel microphone preamplifier. The FireStudio LightPipe is scheduled to ship in May 2007.
The HP60 features six ultra low-noise, high-output PreSonus headphone amplifiers. Audio inputs include two stereo main inputs (A and B), as well as external input for each channel allow the user to mix between three stereo audio streams (mix A, mix B, and external input “more me”). Stereo output is available on each channel to send line level channel mixes to additional headphone amplifiers or monitor systems. Channel controls feature headphone level, mix between inputs A and B, external input volume, mute and mono. The HP60 also features talkback via external XLR microphone. The HP60 is the ultimate headphone amplification system delivering loud and clear headphone mixes for real-world recording situations.
