Fi Station looks like the tablet for the musician

We've reviewed some recording accessories in the past, but a new Indiegogo for a tablet looks to be one for taking the cake.

The Fi Station looks very much like a Lenovo Yoga tablet

Right now, the Early Bird option is still up for $349USD and for that you'd get:

9.7" 4:3 aspect at FullHD (1080p)
(there is an 11.6" 16:9 aspect model for another $150)
1.8GHz x4 Rockchip 3288
32GB storage
Android 5.1.1
2x XLR input
RCA stereo out
1/4" monitor (headphone) out
Coax in/out
Optical in/out
Midi in/out
USB x2
HDMI out

Sure, some of you are saying "Lollipop... that's old!"  But if it's meant to pretty much do one thing and not the latest greatest Flappy Bird games, you won't need the latest OS.

Just look at the plethora of all the connections in and out of the device.  No matter what you're doing, this can help you monitor it and add your effects and whatnot.

It's all a little over my head, but I know a few of my guitar buddies who'd be very interested.

The design with the 'roll bar' makes it very easy to use while recording whether you're the artist with it next to you, or it's on your studio table in the mixing booth.

And it looks hella sleek.

September 6, 2016, Shenzhen, China – Fly Imagine, introduced today the Fi Station, the first all-in-one low-cost portable music, video, and entertainmentcenter for recording and mixing high quality professional music, editing 4K HD video, listening to hi-fi audio, doing karaoke, DJ remixing, and watching HD video, movies, and other content. Priced for a limited time starting at $349 for pre-sale on Indiegogo at:, Fi Station combines top components, an elegant all-metal encased design, and all the ports and technology necessary for professional A/V use, replacing professional sound and video equipment normally costing thousands of dollars.
Includes Pre-installed Fi App, Works with Android, iOS, Mac/PC Apps & Software
Unlike hard-to-use highly technical, expensive systems designed for a small number of hardcore professionals, Fi Station employs the ease-of-use of an Android touchscreen and comes preinstalled with the Fi app for controlling Fi Station’s input/output. Fi Station also gives you full control of a variety of Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac apps, software, and hardware configurations, giving powerful music and video production and mixing to all at a fraction of the price.
Created by the industry’s best designers in high quality Shenzhen, China manufacturing facilities, Fi Station is compact and lightweight, shaped like a tablet, with 9.7” or 11.6” display options and an aluminum alloy unibody with CNC shield noise and other technologies to make audio clearer. Whether you want to record or play music, DJ a party, play 4K HD quality video, watch a HD movie or perform karaoke, Fi Station can handle any request with ease.
Fi Station Makes the Impossible Possible – No Need for Multiple Products to Get the Job Done
“Sometimes you find yourself needing to buy several products to meet your different needs – you might need a professional sound card to record, a Hi-Fi player to listen back to lossless audio, and a separate TV box to play HD videos. And even after you’ve bought all of these separate products, you’ll find that very few of them are compatible with each other,” said Fay Wong, Founder & CTO, Fihifi. “That’s why we created the Fi Station – an easy-to-use product that can be used in different scenarios, with high quality input and output capabilities, neatly wrapped up in a stylish design.”
