    Hi, Im gathering up stuff to cut an album. Im looking at the FireStudio Project.

    The big thing is, I want to have atleast 8 mic inputs.

    I've heard about alot of "technical" problems with these, but I dont care about those, because I've studied all the fixes, and im also a computer tech by trade. I have a beefy "hackintosh" with 2.66 dual core and 4 gigs of hyperX Ram.

    Anyways, what Im wondering is, do you think this is a quality product? If not, what else would you consider for around the same price? Or would it not even be worth getting.

    I've heard alot about needing quality preamps. Im not sure exactly what these are. You see, im a Drummer. I can play alittle guitar, but I dont know anything about the gear.

    Also, could someone suggest a good Mic for less then $200ish? Something good for a low voice prefered.

    Dude, seriously

    If you've heard of technical problems - and are planning on ignoring them, what is there that we can say that you will listen to? Is there any point in answering your questions - will you listen to what we say?

    See above

    There's a hell of a lot of posts about this, but try reading through approx 75% of the Budget gear forum, and then going out and buying an SM58.

    The moral of this story is - we'd love to help you out, but do your research first, and don't ignore what you find!

    Ahhh... :D

    I have done my research, the technical problems with them that I have found have all been attributed to incompatability issues with the PC, which I am confident that I can reasolve if i've had such issues. I just wanted someone who has hands on experience with them to tell me what they think. I dont want someone saying that they heard that their brothers uncles sister had one and it kept dropping out so they eBayed it.

    What I want to know is, has anyone used one hands on and what the experience is like. How do the recordings sound with it and how are the preamps on them. Not, "I hear they have problems with some Firewire cards" because I already know that and have already found out how to resolve the issue.
