Re: Studio monitoring

I was afraid of that. Which also means I can't have a separate control room mix either. Good-bye soloing a channel to isolate something while tracking. I hope this issue goes away under iOS6. As this is a real show stopper for serious studio recording. If I try to tell a client they have the only on...

Studio monitoring

I am contemplating my first real studio project using Auria (after I sort out my choice of interface). But one thing is not clear to me, namely headphone monitoring for the artists. What's the best way to provide multiple headphone mixes for them? As I understand it the iPad, under the current versi...

Mixture of Ribbons and Condensors

Most of the interfaces I see in the recommendations list have an all or none setting for phantom power. That's a BIG problem for those of us who need to use a combination of ribbon and condenser mics. The Firefly has separate switches for each channel, but you can't daisy chain another interface to ...

Re: Estimating recording capacity

Thanks RIM, Precisely the info I needed. At the moment I only have a 16gb iPad2. But even so, given my need to record 4 mono channels, using your algorithm that affords me 13 hours of record time. More than enough to handle all three nights! It really stinks that we can't offload to SD cards or the ...

Estimating recording capacity

The scenario: I am scheduled to mix at a festival soon and am anticipating the idea of recording the shows I do using Auria. Each night I'll be mixing four bands, each playing 45 minutes. I'd like to record the four busses from the mixing console I'll be using. Here are my questons: 1. How much memo...

Re: Rim can you contact presonus and ask about possible fix.

It was only a little tongue in cheek, but... I just wish I knew if ios6 was going to solve this problem. This issue is a show stopper for me. If I knew ios6 fixed it I'd go ahead and buy the presonus. As it is now I am leaning to the Phonic but that apparently has an issue with ADAT expansion. So I ...

Re: Rim can you contact presonus and ask about possible fix.

Got it, thanks. From what I understand, the mixer part of the presonus control panel only works when you have that piece of software running. As soon as you close it, the 1818 becomes a simple 18 in 18 out interface with no routing or mixing. Would be nice if it did. They did confirm to me that the...

Re: iOS6 = Multi-Route Audio = Multi Outputs?

Rim I understand you are under NDA, but can you tell us who are on the fence about buying a Presonus 1818 ONLY because of the headphone issue, if we should go ahead and buy one? As someone who has been under several NDA's with Microsoft in the past, although none with Apple, I don't think such advic...

Re: The Working / Not working audio interfaces thread

Does anyone know what the issue is regarding the Phonic Firefly regarding the use of it's ADAT interface link? The Presonus seems to support the use of an ADAT link allowing for expansion beyond the 8 inputs, but the Phonic doesn't? I was really leaning toward the Phonic because of the individual ph...
