Question about PreSonus FireStudio Project with Faderport

1 Answer

Hello, Not sure if my issue is hardware or software related. I have the Presonus Firestudio Project with CuBase LE4 software, running on a laptop with Windows 7 (Home premium I believe), I have 3GB of RAM and a 2.3GHZ processor, both higher than CuBase requires. I have optimized the laptop for recording, I have defragged the hard drive, "tuned up" the registry, downloaded the latest drivers available, and still CuBase arbitrarily freezes during recording, in a different spot every time (sometimes after a few seconds, sometimes several minutes). If I set CuBase to record through the built-in mic jack on the laptop I have no issues (records for 35 minutes without issue), but when I fire up the Firestudio all goes to pot. Is there anything I can do, other than give up and go with other equipment & software?

What latency do you have the Presonus set to? Too low of latency can cause this issue.

Factory reset

I don't think it's possible to reset a Faderport in the traditional sense since the firmware is not an EPROM (Electrostatic-Programmable-Read-Only-Memory).

I think it's more likely that the driver on your PC or Mac has become corrupted and needs to be uninstalled and reinstalled.

To do this, we'll need to know more about your platform, especially the DAW. Are you using Studio One v2 or v3?

I want to record from my Korg M50 to Cubase LE4 on my laptop.

Hello, To record into a lap top you will need a USB mixer, your audio output from the SYNTH will go into the mixer, you use the midi USB cable from the mixer to the lap top. this will help pre amplify your synth to normal audio levels. hope this helps.

Clicks digital !!! I have problems with my D8 connected to " firestudio 26x26 ". Noise of clicks random only in the tracks of the D8. Clicks foxgloves apparently CLICKS of milliseconds...

Make sure all background processor hogs such as Antivirus, Antimalware, Anti-spam, automatic defragers as well as internet accessing program are either removed or disabled on your computer. These processor hogs cause overuns and underruns causing data loss which appear as clicks caused by discontinuities in the data stream.

Crackling and popping during playback/recording, latency issues. Using Firestudio Project, Windows 7 and Cubase 5.

Turn OFF all resource hogs such as Anti-virus, Anti-pop-up, and other background programs. Disconnect all internet access such as wireless and Ethernet service programs. All these resource hogs and programs for instance that keep track of when to run scans just cause interrupts of the servicing of the high speed audio grabbers. Your machine should be BARE of all these hogs.

With my pc, the presonus firestudio tube got solid blue light but it makes audio cripples, with cubase it can't make the asio multimedia setup. i have latest driver and firmware

Check your latency settings and try something higher that what it is currently set to. 1024 samples is usually a good starting point for most newer PCs.

Hellooo There, I need to convert my FireStudio Project from 120v (US) to 240v (Australia). Does anyone have a circuit diagram or assist with the process for this conversion?

On the back panel, beneath the socket that the IEC mains cable plugs into, the legend says 110-240v A.C. so I believe that the unit is already dual-voltage enabled.  the spec sheet on the manufacturers website confirms it is factory configured to work with 90-230 volts.
However if you are not prepared to risk trying it I would simply purchase a separate voltage converter capable of delivering 20watts output. In the UK these cost about £10 (AUD$20) and  would be a lot cheaper than wrecking your  kit
