Edirol announced the FA-101, a 10-input/10-output FireWire bus-powered audio interface offering two premium mic preamps with phantom power, six dedicated TRS balanced inputs and eight dedicated TRS balanced outputs. This half-rack unit has a front-mounted optical S/PDIF input and output and rear-accessible MIDI input and output.

The FA-101 offers simultaneous 10 inputs and 10 outputs at up to 24-bit/96kHz audio quality on both PC (ASIO 2.0, WDM) and Mac (CoreAudio), and is capable of running completely from the power of the FireWire bus. In addition, it supports stereo in and out at 24-bit/192 kHz. The FA-101 can also be powered by the included DC adapter with 4-pin FireWire ports.

The FA-101's control panel routes various inputs and computer signals to different tracks and outputs

"This FireWire product along with our high-speed USB2 interface sets Edirol apart as the first company offering products using both high-speed serial interfaces,” commented John Broadhead, lead product manager for Edirol North America. “A customer can now focus on features such as sound quality rather than first letting the type of interface dictate a direction.”

The FA-101 lists for $695 and will be available in April 2004. For more information, visit www.edirol.com/products/info/fa101.html.
