Montebello, CA (May 18, 2007)–The new FireOne from Tascam and Frontier Design Group is a FireWire audio interface that combines stereo audio I/O with a control interface. The FireOne includes a copy of Live Lite 6 Tascam Edition, the music creation, production and performance software from Ableton. Live’s drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to seamlessly move from basic song ideas, to studio production, to the stage.
“The FireOne is the most exciting Tascam FireWire interface ever,” said Johnny DeLeon, computer products channel manager for Tascam. “Its unmistakable, portable design fits your hand like a glove. Top that with detailed audio quality and the most innovative recording software and you have an unbeatable package for inspiring great music.”
The FireOne features a pair of mic inputs with phantom power, pad and line switches. A guitar input switch for recording direct and MIDI input and output are also provided. According to the company, it will be the first FireWire interface in its class to record and play at up to 192 kHz/24-bit resolution (with a future free software update).
In addition to its weighted and backlit jog wheel, the FireOne has transport keys and eight shortcut keys to control functions in audio applications like Logic Pro, SONAR, Cubase, Nuendo, Digital Performer and Live.
