I recieved an email from PreSonus with news of their new multi-unit for mac and pc that will enable one to daisy chain three FirePods and also enables you to use with gigastudio. You mean I can finally try GIGASTUDIO?
Lets see.

PreSonus is excited to announce that the FIREPOD multi-unit driver and firmware is officially released!! This means that you can daisy-chain up to three FIREPOD's (on Mac or Win XP) for a total of 24 microphone preamplifiers in three rack spaces! This makes for an amazingly compact live recording rig as well as providing enough inputs to handle almost any recording session. The new driver also supports Gigastudio on PC as well as allows the FIREPOD to be used as a stand-alone 8-channel analog mic preamp.
