Certain Raid configs are inherently better for audio than video than.... Not all DAWs support Raids.

Some DAWs do not support SSDs officially.

You would think this is true, but it is not with other DAWs.

If you crashed that easily in PT, you had something wrong (hardware config/settings, etc).

In recording, you don't want to use it in real time. Too much latency. Besides that, Autone can give you undesirable results that you may not ask for. All audio is effected in auto mode. I only process the audio that I want to be processed and nothing more. I think it is best to get a better performance on the front side and just use it as damage control after the artist has gone or become unable to give it to you.

Are there any reported issues with Specific multiprocessor configs and Solid State Drives and Solid State Drives in a Raid config? Who is running with a Raid and which type?
FireStudio Forum Community Support » Is my Firestudio mobile sending power to my Shure sm57? » Go to message
Re: sending power to the 57...

The Shure SM57 is a dynamic mic, not a condenser. Dynamics are not powered. Current is not sent to it to make it work. In the case od condensers, 48V DC is sent to the mic on the ground conductor (pin1) and returns on pins 2 (hot) and three (cold). If the 48V phantom power is on, it will not hurt the mic. The mic has a shunt that will keep the 48V from hitting the diaphragm and electronics.

Now, just because the preamp works, and you see that verified by the meters, doesn't mean that it is connected to the DAW. The electrical connection has been made in the USB. So, you have not set it up properly and need to revisit the instructions.

With all due respect, you are not selling this stuff like we are. You have your experience to deal with. We have the experiences of hundreds, if not thousands of DAW customers to deal with. We know what is easier for the customer and what is not. Macs are almost always a better solution for Studio One, VSL and Capture. Mac customers seldom if ever have any hardware issues. The issues have been all on Presonus' side. When it comes to PCs, we have to go through pages of docs like those posted here, and do all kinds of prep work, before we can address the DAW issues.

Holy crap. Just buy a mac and you will not have to do all of this stuff. What a waste. So you can build a cheap machine. So what? If the cheap machine has a junk OS, what good it it? People blame many of their DAW woes on the DAW coders, when most of them have 10 or so systems operating flawlessly in their design departments. Windows is a complete joke for an OS anyway. The only Windows DAW I use is SAWStudio and the live Software Audio Console. The reason I use those on a PC is because they are coded in Assembly Language that by=passes Windows for the most part. For everything else, Apple Macs are IT.
Pre-Sales Questions » Lack of one feature keeps me away from buying Studio One » Go to message
Maybe I am simple minded. Ihave been doing what you guys are asking for since 2002 in all of the DAWs I have owned. I solo the CPU intensive tracks and bounce the song to disc. Then, I import that wav into the session, deactivating the tracks used to create the wav. If I need to make a change in the mix of the bounced wav, I can reactivate the tracks and bounce it again. It is a pain, but that is what I have done.

I must say that have only done it a few times. I do not use soft instruments. Some of my projects are deep in edits and high track counts. If you learn how to make a record and make decisions on the front side, you can record processes to tracks instead of wasting resources while you hold out for future changes.

In my opinion, it is a huge mistake to have your DAW and your instruments in the same machine. If something happens, you potentially lose both. One can bog down the other. I would keep them discrete.

Firestudio 26x26s, the context of the OP. Sorry.

I have no idea. I haven't been informed by the rep or anyone at the shop. I assume it is to make room for new interfaces. USB3 would be my guess.
Pre-Sales Questions » FireStudio out of stock everywhere? » Go to message
Actually, I was wrong. The controller was listed in the accessories. The following are the only interfaces currently offered as of January 1st of this year:

AudioBox USB
Firestudio Mobile
FireStudio Project
FireStudio Tube

Actually, the units ARE discontinued, as are their monitor controllers. They are no longer on our dealer price sheets. So, it is not because dealers do not wish to pay taxes on inventory.
FireStudio Forum Community Support » Is this company impossible to get a hold of or what??? » Go to message
Presonus is a very small company. They recently hired a new guy to run the show, to make sure that customer service is improved.
releasing Studio One increased their workload exponentially. This is what they told the dealers a few months ago. It is no easier on the dealer side to get someone sometimes. I would say keep trying and be patient.

Slow support is something that we deal with no matter the size of the company, especially in this economic climate.
