High Quality and Improved Audio Interface

is a rugged, rack-mountable USB audio interface with comprehensive simultaneous inputs and outputs , featuring a total of eight microphone preamps, 18 inputs and 20 outputs . In addition to its easy set-up, this 19-inch audio interface boasts excellent sound quality, talkback functionality and built-in speaker circuits , while various enhancements - including A-D and D-A conversion - provide even better performance and nuanced recording and playback at up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution .

eight excellent third-generation Scarlett microphone preamplifiers


What is unique is that an optional Air mode can be added to replicate the Air effect from the original ISA micro phone preamp , if required. This can lead to a more open and brighter sound. In addition, a pad on each microphone preamp allows for higher signal levels without clipping. The two instrument inputs on


front panel provide plenty of headphone space and allow guitars


basses to


recorded without clipping or unwanted distortion.

Not to mention the virtual loopback inputs for recording stereo signals to allow podcasting, live streaming and sampling .
But the list is longer!
