Thanks. Could you possibly tell me how to do that? As I said I am new and I have messing with it for 2 hours or so and am rapidly approaching a frustration overload. Thanks again.

I am new to all of this, DAW, interface, and Presonus. I am struggling to learn the interface and the FSM. Making some progress and not getting overly frustrated by my slow progress.
I have a bilingual FW400 to 800 cable hooked to my Mini and an SM58 mic plugged into the FSM mic in 1. AKG headphones in headphone out on the FSM. The mic and phones work fine in independent testing but I hear nothing in the phones?
I have tried it independently, studio one not on. With S1 on, and with the computer sound in and out set on FireStudio and S1 set to FSM. Any thoughts?

Thanks for the input. Sorry about the slow response, holidays and such. I am having issues with the basic set up at this point, FS Mobile Sm58, AKG headset and I can't hear anything in the AKG But the mic works and the headset works?

What type or cord do I need for this? Will TRS to TRS work? Build TS to TRS cord with sleeve and ring common on the TRS end? etc.
I don't seam to have a lot of volume in my AKG 271 MKIIs coming out of the FSMs headphone out. Talking, loud, into an SM 58 with the mic input as hot as it will go before the clip light, and clipping comes on/starts. With the headphone level maxed out by the way.

Well I just tried the headphone out again and no signal to the the AKGs. Input meter is working fine?

OK, I downloaded the Studio One 2 update and that allowed me to install the extra goodies thanks for the help, now all I have to do is figure how to work this stuff! Thanks again.

I have done that and the program loaded but All the extra stuff didn't. Loops, drums, synths, etc? I downloaded themseperatly from the page you mentioned and I am now trying to figure out how to add them.

OK, I have the FSMobile sitting in front of me. I have downloaded and installed Universal Control 1.7 for Mac. The next step is to hook up the FSM to the Mac Mini, then install Studio 1 right? I have the CD and the code and have downloaded Studio 1 (but have not tried to install it yet)
I am not sure how to do this correctly. I have downloaded S1 demo before so it won't let me register because I have an email address that has already downloaded the demo? Pleas help so I can get up and running.

Yea, I had to jump on the TPP bandwagon
I guess I meant the FW will work for me better because I may want to get a StudioLive 16.0.2 at some point and the FSM would allow daisy chaining more inputs if needed.

Ordered a FSM for US$199.00. I am a nube at this, but, from my research, FW is still stronger than USB for this application?

Thanks guys. The 2626 was on sale cheap on eBay, I passed. I ordered a FS Mobile yesterday
Digital Audio Recording » Setting up, installing and connecting studio gear » Go to message
I'm not even sure what questions to ask?

I am a retired live sound tech. I am collecting gear to have a fun little home studio. How would you connect these components? I know the signal flow and how to connect mics/gits/speakers etc.
For example, I would need a firewire 800 to 400 cable to hook up the Mac and FireStudio (a 9 pin to 6 pin bilingual cable is in the mail). As far as MIDI and S/PDIF I don't know my a** from a hole in the ground!
The following is what I have so far;
1 Sure SM58, mic cord and boom stand.
1 Lexicon MX300 reverb, USB, S/PDIF I/O, MIDI in thru, 2 balanced 1/4” analog ins and outs, 2 XLR ins and outs
1 TC Helicon VoiceWorks, S/PDIF I/O, MIDI in thru out, 2 balanced 1/4” analog outs, Balanced line and Mic ins
1 TC Electronic M300 delay/reverb, S/PDIF I/O, MIDI in out, 2 1/4” ins and outs
The above left over from my live days.
1 AKG 271MKII headphones
1 pr Creative Gigaworks T20 series 2 speakers. Not really monitors, maybe Santa will bring some real ones?
1 M-Audio Venom synth, MIDI out in, USB2, Mic and instrument ins 2 1/4” outs and 2 RCA inputs.
1 2012 Mac Mini quad i7, USB3 Firewire 800 and combo Digital/analog 1/8” ins and outs. (the Venom won't play with the Mini because of the USB3 on the Mini) I think I can hook that into the back of the FSM as well? Or would MIDI be the way to go?
A FireStudio Mobile is in the mail.
I wonder if I could use the VoiceWorks as a 3rd mic pre going into a 1/4” input on the FSM? Actually, every piece has MIDI so I don't really know how to connect units. (MIDI or analog?)
I am going to read a MIDI primer at this point. Spent an hour learning basic MIDI stuff, much work to be done.

The rack units all have good sounds and I can get around nicely on the them, but are they worth hooking up?
Can I use the VoiceWorks for a mic pre/interface

All the ins and outs can be seen here;

I guess the main question is how to do a basic set up with FSM, Mac Mini, and monitors. (SM58 into the FSM or course).
And then Venom and outboard gear? If worthwhile?
I plan on using the S1 Artist software.
Any input is much welcome.

What is/are the differences between the 2626 and project? Is the 2626 still a decent option?
Pre-Sales Questions » Is FireStudio Mobile soon to be discontinued? » Go to message
Is FireStudio Mobile soon to be discontinued? The reason I asked is the local music store will sell me a new-in-the-box unit for US$199.
Maybe just the store is discontinuing sales of it? The cheapest I have seen on the interweb is $229.00?
