Another purpose for using UC is to set up an in/out routing scheme with UC and then you can use the unit without any PC exactly with this programmed setup for live, rehersal and so on. It is saved on the unit until next re-programming.

Yes. And it depends on your audio hardware.

He is lying.

If you don't see a "Project MIDI" entry in the "Receive from" pop-up list, then the issue could be on all sides, beginning with a incomplete/corrupted driver installation over to a corrupted installation of S1 Pro or hardware failure of the MIDI ports of the FSP (which normally is very unlikely).

Reading the Capture specs i don't think that a SL device is really needed, it's only for registering the software that you'll have to have one of their mixers.

just for me to understand. the low latency cue mix in Studio artist is the same like using universalControl routing the signal direct to monitor out and send for example a reverb or delay signal from the DAW to the same monitor. the effect signal is just the effect without the source signal. is this correct?


You don't get an effect signal back from a DAW without routing an audio/source signal into it before, so it's very problematic to monitor your source with zero latency *directly* on the FSP and get a sync'ed signal with much more latency back from your DAW.

is there something like the "Z" button in cubase? Or how could a zero latency setup look like?


I don't know the Yamaha audio interfaces that team up with Cubase, also sold by Steinberg. Maybe they use such a button/function. But it's always depending on the hardware you would use.

You could, as an example, use the Firestudio together with the UniversalControl mixer and activate the output tabs on the right side of the mixer window to get a monitor mix for i.e. a voice channel and leaving the rest of the channels routed through your DAW. But that will also generate heavy latency on the summing mix.

Control Room in Cubase is not the same as the "Z" cue mix option in S1.

The "Z" button allows you to avoid routing of audio from the FSP via Firewire into your PC and then into your DAW, then back to your main outs or other outs (that will generate the most latency in your whole system). The audio stays in your unit and will be directly routed from the in's to the out's.

Cubase' Control Room feature allows you to mimic a studio console with different routings for recording and monitoring i.e. via headphones, so that you can mix different levels for the needs of your musicians. But that is all done in software/in your DAW, no hardware control for direct monitoring is used.

If you can explain what all of this weird connections could or should do, we'll discuss it. Don't imitate someone's setup if you don't know what it is about.

Have i mentioned that connecting in's and out's in such way is really bad and could lead to RPM or completely loss of your device?

If anyone has recorded a Skype call


I would record it by using Soundflower and route it into my DAW on a dedicated track. I think, that's the point where you might re-read the manuals, think about what system and OS you have, where your "Skype calls" are generated and landing and why you don't need the two XLR to 1/4 cables.

Still we don't know anything about your system's specs and why you want to record a software like Skype via two XLR to 1/4 cables. Please do yourself a favour and get a step back to learn the basics first.

I'm afraid there's no way to avoid reading the FSP and Audition manuals, especially if you don't have any experience with DAWs and audio interfaces.

Don't "patch" the FSP outputs with it's inputs, they're both working completely different internally as you might expect it from analogue mixers. Record only over the in's and route the channels in your DAW. Or learn to use the UniversalControl app for monitoring your recordings.

I don't know your complete system, so i can't help with Skype and/or your idea to record it on two channels(?).
FireStudio Mobile & FireStudio Project » PreSonus Firestudio Project / Adobe Audition / Mac Mini w/ Firewire / Heil Microphone / Skype » Go to message
Have you linked the first 2 channels to stereo in UniversalControl mixer? Then they would be routed to your DAW as one stereo channel.

But I don't understand why you route the line/aux out of channel 1 into other inputs and re-route it back?? That will also double the mic in's channel like an aux out through a external hardware effect. And phantom-powering the inputs 3 and 4 while there's no low-power-consuming gear directly connected is a very bad idea too.

Maybe the download was broken or the uninstall didn't work, try to re-download and to read the uninstall hints in the Presonus' knowledge base/FAQs.
FireStudio Mobile & FireStudio Project » how so I find my audio drivers in Mac OSX to use firebox for all apple audio? » Go to message
If you are sure that the firewire connection is fully working (no red light/blinking, sync with your Mac Pro is working) on hardware level, then it might be useful to do a full uninstall and re-install of driver and UC app. Happened to me the first time i tried to work with my FSP.

I avoid to set my FSP as the standard OSX audio output device because i don't wanna record any system sounds during my recordings.

Virtual Soundcard, using your normal computer network port and working as a software-only solution. But i don't know how the peformance is on a non-dedicated bus system.
