The PreSonus FireStudio Lightpipe is a 24-bit/96k ADAT light pipe to FireWire computer recording system for both PC and Macintosh computer systems. The FireStudio Lightpipe allows you to convert up to 32 channels of ADAT optical light pipe input/output to FireWire providing a multi-channel computer interface for digital mixers, AD/DA converters or ADAT recorders. FireStudio Lightpipe features JetPLL jitter elimination technology for ultra tight synchronization and improved imaging and clarity along with a 34x4 DSP matrix mixer allowing you to create dual zero-latency monitor mixes.
