The ProFire 610 FireWire audio interface transforms your Mac or PC into a 6-in/10-out recording studio. Digital converters deliver high-definition, 24-bit/192kHz audio throughout the signal path. Two preamps with Octane technology offer clean, transparent sound with low noise as well as headroom. Onboard DSP mixing provides a flexible recording experience for creating multiple, independent monitor mixes. The user-assignable master volume knob gives you control over output levels. MIDI I/O allows you to connect keyboards and other outboard MIDI hardware. The half-rack-space unit also doubles as a standalone two-channel microphone preamp and A/D-D/A converter. ProFire 610 is compatible with major audio software including Pro Tools*, Cubase, Logic, Sonar, Live and GarageBand.
The master volume knob can be assigned to attenuate all output pairs simultaneously for controlling a 7.1 surround mix. Alternatively, the master volume knob can control the levels sent to your main monitors, while headphone outputs 1 and 2 operate independently. With four analog output pairs and an intuitive software control panel, ProFire 610 offers a range of options for unique monitoring scenarios.
ProFire 610 features an onboard DSP mixer, giving the user an extra level of flexibility and improving the overall system performance. Use the software control panel to create custom configurations for different recording setups, then save the settings and instantly recall them later. Users can set up five unique stereo mixes sourced from any of the hardware inputs and software returns simultaneously for assigning separate monitor mixes to multiple musicians. The onboard DSP mixer also enables users to monitor while tracking, which is comparable to using a hardware mixer.
Four unique analog inputs, eight analog outputs and stereo digital S/PDIF combine to form a 6-in/10-out channel configuration. Access analog channels 1 and 2 via XLR/TS combo jacks on the front panel. Connect line-level instruments and effects processors to analog channels 3 and 4 via TRS. Use the eight 1/4" TRS balanced line outputs and digital S/PDIF to monitor and interface with outboard gear. Connect keyboards and outboard MIDI hardware to the 1 x 1 MIDI interface. The two front-panel headphone jacks are sourced separately with independent level controls for additional cue mixing flexibility. ProFire 610 allows you to enjoy full 24-bit/192kHz operation on all inputs and outputs simultaneously.
