    Hey everyone, So when I was traveling across country before, my firepod must have gotten knocked around a bit... It works completely fine but two of the red LED lights on the front for the gain knobs have fallen into the unit and I can hear them rattling around. It's not a big deal but...

    I know the Firepod is a few years old now, but I have a chance to pick one up used for a good price. How does it stack up to newer interfaces (lets say ~$300)? I don't need 8 preamps, but at the price I can get it at it seems like a steal. I was considering the audiofire 4 before coming across...

    I am currently pretty happy with the results I am getting when recording my jazz guitar. I currently mic my Archtop (seven string, big body type) with a Rode NTK and record the direct signal from my guitar through an Avalon U5. I then re-amp with a radial X-amp through a Polytone and mic this...
