    Hello! I currently have a Presonus Firestation. Due to our new band addition we will be needing more inputs then currently on the FS. I was wondering what I could go about doing to have more inputs. I believe I read the Firestation has mLAN because of it's ability to hook up other hardware up to it. My question is, can I add a small hardware device just to get a few more inputs such as the M Audio "Audiophile" or would I have to connect plainly just another Firestation to it. Or..... is none of that possible, and I would now have to get a new recording device with more inputs.

    I know with their Firepod it is possible to daisy chain units together to get more inputs. I'd email Presonus tech support. It isn't possible to use more than one kind of audio interface/sound card at a time in most DAWs. Especially two different brands, becuase of drivers, etc.

    Alright, I do have one more question... I have more than one firewire port on my card (not the firestation) So I was wondering if I could have another different piece of hardware on another port and have 2 of them using the same FireWire card at the same time.

    sell your firestation and get a firepod..

    in canadian prices..

    i saw the fireBOX for 499$ !!!! OUCH !!!! TWO INPUTS!

    then there was the FIREPOD 799$ !!!! 8 INPUTS plus s/pdif etc... !!!! for 300 more.. you could have a steller upgrade...

    but thats just what i would do..

    but then again.. its to late.
