Edirol has announced the newest addition to their line of audio interfaces, the FA-66. The FA-66 is a 6-channel version of the powerful FA-101 FireWire interface. The FA-66 builds on this technology offering a completely portable recording center with high-gain microphone preamps & premium analog components for home studio & field recording.

Edirol's support of Apple's Standard FireWire Audio Driver greatly simplifies the user experience when it comes to installation. Loading drivers is a thing of the past with the FA-66 in OS X. The user simply plugs-in and immediately the device appears offering the best sound quality, performance, and value to the Mac user. In addition, the FA-66 supports WDM/ASIO2.0 drivers for Windows XP.

The Edirol FA-66 allows simultaneous recording of up to 6 channels of audio at 24-bit, 96kHz, or up to 4 channels of audio at 24-bit/192kHz. Record two microphones directly into the FA-66 via the included phantom power mic preamps. These two XLR/TRS combo jacks can record from either microphone or line level devices directly into the computer -- including Hi-Z capability for guitarists. Record any line-level device into the FA-66 through stereo RCA inputs including signals from CD players, Tape decks, mini disc, keyboards, mixing consoles or any other line device.

The FA-66 offers 4 TRS balanced +4dBu outputs allowing two different stereo outputs--great for keeping a main mix and a cue mix on separate outputs. The balanced +4dBu output ensures high signal levels and quality even when running cables long distances. Monitor incoming signals with ZERO latency through theDirect Mix monitor on the front of the FA-66.

A special performance-oriented feature of the FA-66 is a built-in limiter to reduce the chance of over-shooting the optimal input level of the FA-66. The FA-66 also offers stereo optical S/PDIF to record from and play to digital devices such as DAT or CD-Recorder. The FA-66 also offers MIDI I/O to connect a keyboard, sound module, or MIDI sync capable device.

Suggested retail price is $495.
