The FA-101, Edirol's first Firewire audio interface is a smashing 10x10 audio interface, capable of 24-bit/96 kHz at a full 10 channels in & out. You can record and monitor all 10 channels simultaneously in full duplex- phenomenal audio power for the studio musician.
In addition to 10x10 24-bit/96kHz performance, the FA-101 also offers 6 channel recording & playback at 24-bit/192kHz for performance at DVD-A quality.The portable musician will love that the FA-101 draws its power completely from the Firewire bus - there is no need for an electrical hookup. At an event, all of the band's hardware can be routed through the FA-101 to output to monitors and at the same time the show can be recorded and during the break, CD's burned to sell on the spot. The Performance DJ will rely on the FA-101's rugged metal chassis to allow him to pound the clubs without worrying about the state of his audio interface. Back at home, the FA-101 will return as the centerpiece to the home studio.Because of the FA-101's ability to supply so many simultaneous inputs, it's perfect for any portable audio application. Portability with no limitation means you'll be able to take the FA-101 to any kind of performance to record multi-track audio.The two Phantom-power XLR/TRS combo jacks offer premium mic preamps for incredibly clean recording with studio condenser mics or dynamic stage mics. The back of the FA-101 hosts a number of 1/4" TRS balances inputs & outputs: six inputs and eight outputs in all. The front-mounted S/P DIF optical I/Os transfer audio to & from other digital devices and the built-in MIDI interface allows a synthesizer or controller keyboard to be connected to the FA-101 for sequencing directly into a software program.If you're looking for an audio interface capable of simultaneous multi-channel recording on your computer at the highest quality possible... you need the Edirol FA-101, particularly if you have Firewire. Invest in yourself and your music, with the FA-101.Main Features:10x10 24-bit/96kHz Audio performance 6x6 24-bit/192kHz Audio Performance FireWire Bus-Powered Direct Monitoring Low-latency Driver Support Native Support in Mac OS X (10.3.4 or later) 2x Phantom Power Mic Preamps 8x8 balanced analog I/O S/P DIF Optical I/O MIDI I/O Main SpecificationsNumber of Audio Record/Playback Channels(Up to 96kHz) Full DuplexRecord: 10 ChannelsPlayback: 10 Channels<192kHz> Full DuplexRecord: 6 ChannelsPlayback: 6 ChannelsSignal ProcessingPC Interface: 24-bitAD/DA Conversion: 24-bit (Linear)Sampling FrequencyDigital Output: 44.1/48/88.2/96 kHzDigital Input: 44.1/48/88.2/96 kHzAD/DA Conversion: 44.1/48.88.2/96/192 kHzFrequency Response96.0 kHz : 20 Hz to 40 kHz (+0/-2 dB)88.2 kHz : 20 Hz to 40 kHz (+0/-2 dB)48.0 kHz : 20 Hz to 22 kHz (+0/-2 dB)44.1 kHz : 20 Hz to 20 kHz (+0/-2 dB)Nominal Input LevelInput jack 1-2 (XLR Type):-50 to -10 dBuInput jack 1-2 (1/4" TRS Phone Type):-35 to +4 dBuInput jack 3-6: +4 BalancedInput jack 7-8: -10dBu to +4dBu (Balanced)Nominal Output LevelOutput Jack 1-8 +4 dBu (Balanced)SN RATIO (Typical)OUTPUT: 108 dB (typ.)INPUT: 102 dB (typ.)"A-Weighted" Residual Noise Level(input terminated with 1 k ohms,MAIN VOLUME: 0 dB,INPUT SENS: +4 dBu,DIRECT MONITOR VOLUME: OUT1/2 position,IHF-A typ., Balanced)Output Jack 1-298 dBuInterfaceFireWire (IEEE1394)Digital input/outputOptical type (conforms to IEC60958)MIDI In/OutConnectorsInput Jack 1-2 (XLR/TRS Combo)XLR type (Balanced/phantom power +48V)TRS type (Balanced)Headphones Jack (Stereo 1/4" phone type)Digital In Connectors (Optical Type)Digital Out Connectors (Optical Type)Input jack 3-8:TRS Phone type (Balanced)Output jack 1-8:TRS phone type (Balanced)MIDI Connectors (In, Out)FireWire ConnectorPower SupplyAC AdaptorDimensions8-5/8 (W) x 5-7/16 (D) x 1-7/8 (H) inchesAccessoriesOwner's ManualDriver CD-RomAC-Adaptor6 to 4 FireWire Cable6 to 6 FireWire Cable System RequirementsMacintoshOS: MacOS X 10.3.4 or 10.3.3 with-+* Firewire UpdateComputer: Apple Macintosh series with on-board FirewireCPU/Clock: PowerPC G3/800MHz, G4/700MHz*PowerPC G4/1.2GHz or higher recommended for 192kHz Memory(RAM): 256MB or More Display/Colors: 800x600 or higher WindowsOS: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition/ XP ProfessionalComputer: Windows XP Compatible PC equipped with an IEEE 1394/FireWire PortCPU/Clock: Pentium, Celeron, or Pentium compatible processor 900MHz or higher. *Pentium IV/2GHz or higher recommended for 192kHz Memory(RAM): 256MB or more Display/Colors: 800x600 or higher/65,536 colors (16 bit High Color) or more.
