Tascam has launched the FireOne, a FireWire audio interface offering a large, weighted, backlit jog wheel for scrubbing through recorded tracks. The FireOne features a pair of mic inputs with phantom power, pad and line switches. A guitar input switch for recording direct and MIDI input and output are also provided. The FireOne can record using two mic inputs and two outputs simultaneously at 24-bit/192kHz resolution.
The FireOne also has transport keys and nine programmable shortcut keys for controlling functions in audio applications such as Logic Pro, SONAR, Cubase, Nuendo, Digital Performer, Live and Pro Tools. Its edit control interface allows it to be used with video editing applications, including Final Cut Pro and Premiere.
