    Default Request: Presonus Firebox Vs Firestudio Mobile

    Hi ppl,

    Since we have a lot of people that uses Presonus Firebox as a Audio Interface I think that is interesting if we could have a Comparison Review of Firebox Vs Firestudio Mobile.

    What's the difference between them?
    Is the Bentosan's tutorial still the same with the FS Mobile version?

    Thanks in advance,
    hoff

    There's an interesting discussion of the FS Mobile here. Seems it has some rather nice DA/AD convertors with a lot of dynamic range, and the price is the same as the FireBox. I have yet to purchase my audio interface, but I was leaning towards the Firebox based on what I have read (and wanting firewire rather than USB).

    Pretty new, my local Apple reseller who is also a Pro Audio dealer has not got any yet, though I have seen prices posted on other local music store sites. Problems with upgrades often stem from an incomplete or failed uninstall leaving stuff behind.

    Where are you hearing this from? It seems many people are just praising it; and even saying it's as good as if not better than motu ultralite. I personally didn't like Motu's driver support and software, but sound quality alone is seriously a feat in itself; especially at the $300 price!
