Plug a microphone into channel one and turn on 48V phantom power if needed for the microphone. You should see the input meter react to your speaking. Adjust trim so that input level at maximum without clipping. Adjust the MIX control counter clockwise to monitor input only for zero latency. Note that online help available for Cubase LE by pressing F1 or visiting www.
Microphone Pre-Amplifier. The award winning PreSonus preamplifier design is a Class A input buffer followed by a dual servo gain stage. This arrangement results in ultra low noise and wide gain control allowing the FIREPOD user to boost desirable signal without increasing unwanted background noise. The top button turns on phantom power for microphone Inputs 1 to 4. The bottom button turns on phantom power for microphone inputs 5 to 8. This feature gives you wide dynamic range and excellent transient response characteristics.
Neutrik Combo Connectors. The line level inputs for these two channels are on the back panel of the FirePod. When an instrument is plugged into the instrument input, the microphone preamplifier is bypassed and the FirePod becomes an active instrument preamplifier. NOTE: Active instruments are those that have an internal preamp or a line level output.
Active instruments should be plugged into a line input rather than into an instrument input. This knob provides the following gain structure for each channel:. Clip Indicator. Therefore it is highly recommended that you do not allow your converters to clip the clip indicators to light up as the sound quality would not be desirable. The mix knob is like a balance control. This feature is an analog hardware mixer, so it allows you to monitor the signal before it goes to your computer providing zero latency monitoring.
The Phones knob controls the amount of volume going to the headphone output on the front of the unit. Notice the volume indicator goes to 11 loud. Use this setting with caution.
This light is a clock sync indicator. It lets you know if your unit is receiving word clock correctly. Word clock is the manner by which digital devices sync frame rates.
Proper word clock sync prevents digital devices from having pops, clicks, or distortion in the audio signal due to mismatched digital audio transmission. Blue — solid sync Red — sync not present. Flashing Red and Blue — external sync not present.
Power Adaptor Input. Please check the power supply to ensure that it is the correct voltage and plug type for your country. Power Switch. Push the top part of the switch to turn the unit on. Push the bottom part of the switch to turn the unit off. FireWire Ports. Both FireWire ports are standard 6 pin firewire jacks. If your computer has a 4 pin connector, then you will need to get a 4 to 6 pin connector to connect your FirePod to your computer. Word clock is the synchronizing signal that indicates the sampling frequency or rate of sample words over a digital audio interface.
However, the MIDI standard goes well beyond just instrumentation and sequencing. One function of this port is MIDI programming. Please consult the manual of the software manufacture to learn setup and usage of different MIDI applications. This outputs the results of the setting of the Mix knob on the front of the unit. The Mix knob is a balance control between the inputs and the first two outputs. Main CR Output. These outputs are the same as line outputs 1 and 2. The level of this output is controlled by the Main volume knob on the front of the unit.
Simply connect the Preamp Output jack, balanced or unbalanced to the input of the external processor. The final, processed signal will be available to record now. The Line Input can also be used as a standard line level input for devices that do not require pre-amplification such as a CD player, drum machine, sampler and etc.
Dynamic microphones and ribbon microphones are generally lower output devices and require no external power source. Condenser microphones are generally more sensitive than dynamic and ribbon microphones and typically require external 48V phantom power. NOTE: If you are using a ribbon microphone, please check the manual on the unit before applying phantom power.
Applying phantom power to some microphones could cause damage to the microphone. The Line Input can also be used as a standard line level input for devices that do not require preamplification such as a CD player, drum machine, sampler and etc. This makes recording extremely easy.
