M-Audio Reveals ProFire 610 – FireWire Audio Interface
M-Audio revealed the ProFire 610 FireWire audio interface, a compact unit with advanced functionality, 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution, M-Audio Octane preamp technology and onboard DSP mixing in a bus-powered unit.
The flexible ProFire 610 audio interface was designed to facilitate the needs of diverse musicians and producers. Two preamps with Octane technology offer solid sound with low distortion. Multiple analog and digital connection options enable DJs and electronic musicians to use the ProFire 610 interface as the centerpiece of a live performance rig.
The onboard DSP mixer allows producers and musicians to create multiple, independent monitor mixes. Simultaneous 6 x 10 I/O gives sound designers and video editors the ability to create 7.1 surround sound mixes in 24-bit/192kHz audio resolution. The metal chassis allows users to take ProFire 610 on the road for mobile music production.
