Edirol FA101 Firewire Audio Interface

The FA-101 is a feature-packed 10x10 audio interface that can handle a full 10 channels of input/output at 24-bit/96kHz. Record and monitor all 10 channels simultaneously in full duplex. Phenomenal audio power for the studio musician! In addition, the FA-101 offers 6-channel recording and playback at 24-bit/192kHz for performance at DVD-A quality.

The portable musician will love the FA-101, which draws its power completely from the Firewire bus — there's 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. During the break, CDs can be burned to sell on the spot. The Performance DJ will rely on the FA-101’s rugged metal chassis for reliable, club-tough operation. Back at home, the FA-101 will return as the centerpiece to the home studio.

Because of the FA-101’s ability to supply ample simultaneous inputs, the interface is perfect for practically any portable audio application. Portability with no limitation means you'll be able to take the FA-101 to any kind of performance.

The two phantom-powered XLR/TRS combo jacks offer premium mic preamps for high-quality recording. The back of the FA-101 hosts a number of 1/4" TRS balanced inputs & outputs: six inputs and eight outputs in all. The front-mounted S/PDIF optical I/Os transfer audio to and from other digital devices. 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, put the Edirol FA-101 at the top of your list.

"Nice and solid. Good Drivers."
Sound: The included pre-amps work nicely. Low noise and enough gain for my purpose (recording pop vocals). I've only used it with my Studio Projects B1 and it's been serving me well. Feature: For this price, I think this unit is a pretty nice bang for the buck. 2 pre-amps, 8 analog in's, 2 S/PDIF in's, etc. The good thing is that it works as advertised. No problems. Quality: Seems pretty solid. Nicely built, good mobility because of its weight. I've put it in a laptop bag and flew on the plane with it. Works fine. The transformer included with mine works in all regions. I've used it in both Japan and Hong Kong without problems despite the different voltages in the 2 countries. Value: I considered the M-audio FW410 before purchasing this. But I've seen reviews where users were having problems with the drivers and such. So I looked into this unit. The price is reduced now and I think it's pretty good for an entry-level product. The firepod was not released yet when I made my purchase and that unit seems to be nice because of including 8 preamps (man!). So, if you have another 100 to spend, getting that might be even more bang for the buck. Manufacturer Support: Replied my email about a sample rate question within a week. The Wow Factor: Nice red, shiny color that pics on the net don't do justice to. ;) Overall: The very one thing I was worried before purchasing an audio interface is to have to mess with my computer and IRQ's just to get the thing to work. This unit has been problem-less and easy to setup. Good and solid. I record it with SONAR on a PC laptop and it's been fine.
Style of Music: Rock, Pop, Metal, etc.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Rock Solid Red"
Sound: The preamps are very clean, and everything sounds great (especially at 24/92). My only complaint is that the mic preamps are a bit quiet - I find myself usually having to crank up to highest sensitivity. Feature: It has two combo XLR/1/4" inputs in front; that's convenient. The fact that it's bus-powered is great -- and though I was worried about using it this way, it works just fine. The FA-101 doesn't have a lot of gimmicky features, but the features it does have are quality. I really like the fact that this is simple, rock solid, and simply works. Quality: So far, it seems great, although I've only had it a week! It's solid, metal, and seems very well-built. I used it for a gig without AC power and it performed like a champ. Value: For 10 in/10 out firewire, this is a steal. It's also a heck of a lot easier to cart around than an 828 (although the 828s do offer more). Manufacturer Support: I have not yet dealt with Edirol, so no comment. The Wow Factor: It's wireless and red :-) Overall: I expect to use this for a long time. The preamp's not such a big deal as I can use an external preamp or mixer.
Style of Music: Experimental

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
