From the Manufacturer
With Focusrite's iTrack Solo, you can record guitar and vocals on your Mac, PC, or iPad. iTrack Solo provides the best solution for recording your instruments and vocals using an iPad. Featuring a Focusrite microphone pre-amplifier and an input to record directly from electric and bass guitars, iTrack Solo is the perfect way to expand the audio capabilities of your iPad using Garageband or any other music-making app. Although it is an Apple-certified "Made for iPad" device, iTrack Solo is also fully compatible with your PC or Mac computer and comes with a host of free music making software including Ableton Live Lite and the Focusrite Scarlett Plug-in Suite.
The iTrack Solo is a 2-channel audio interface for iOS devices, Mac, and PC. Just connect your iTrack Solo to a power supply and an iPad and you're ready to go. With the very best in digital audio technology encased by a rugged aluminum unibody chassis, iTrack Solo will capture and playback your sound with pristine quality--up to 24-bit/96 resolution when used with PC or Mac.
Plug Straight In
The front panel has an input for a microphone and an input for an instrument (such as an electric guitar, bass guitar or the output of an electro-acoustic guitar). This makes the iTrack Solo perfect for capturing the output of a microphone, or using an electric guitar with one of the many guitar amp applications on iPad.
Keep an Eye on Your Audio
Unique signal halos let you know that you've got a good audio level for recording, with level and clip indication. Green is good and red means that your audio is too loud, and that you should turn down the level control.
Works with Garageband and Other Apps and DAWs
Record your songs with many apps including GarageBand, or connect to your favorite digital audio workstation on Mac or PC. iTrack Solo includes samples for Ableton Live Lite, Novation Bass Station, Scarlett Plug-in Suite, and Loopmasters.
25 Years of Experience
Since 1985, Focusrite has been a leading manufacturer in the professional audio field. Focusrite mic pres are the choice of leading artists, recording studios and engineers around the world. Now get the quality of Focusrite on your iPad or computer.
Don't be Limited by Your Dock
Use the iTrack Solo's premium quality audio outputs to take your sound to Hi-Fi, speaker systems or headphones to hear the difference Focusrite can make. At Focusrite, that's all that matters--sound is everything. A supplied cable connects iTrack Solo to the iPad, and it is powered by the included USB cable that delivers the power necessary to run the iTrack's high-specification components. If you are using iTrack Solo with a Mac or PC you don't need to connect it to the mains, your computer will supply enough power via the USB cable. The cable supplied in the box with your iTrack Solo is designed to pass Apple's Made for iPad tests to ensure that any official iPad accessory can meet their standards for noise interference resilience, specifically the TDMA noise that can be induced when an iPad receives a telephone call over a 2G network.

The complaints about the iPad connector cable are valid - it's too stiff and short. I feel like I might accidently break it off if I'm not too careful. Why it uses a proprietary connector on the back of the unit, I'll never know. To combat the included 30-pin cable I bought a $10 3ft 30-pin extension cable, which seems to do the job nicely. The GarageBand software on the iPad is simple enough to use, and while it can only record one of the 2 input channels at a time, that's fine for what I expected. To record from a live sound-board, I just use the XLR input, set the gain (with the awesome colored halo ring), and save the recording as a mono track.
Being small and solidly built, I've got no problem tossing this in the milk-crate with the rest of my cables and peddles.
In regards to how it records when plugging into a computer via USB (an iMac in this case), it's even better than I expected. The GarageBand software on the Mac does have the ability to record both input channels at the time time. The on-board monitor volume and headphone is fantastic. I thought it only would play back what was being input at that moment, but it does more than that.Read more ›
First, the pros:
-Outstandingly low latency. Uses the same driver as the scarlett, and I can run the demo track in the latest version of Ableton Live Suite with a buffer of 64 samples. That's an overall latency of 9.93ms which rivals RME and is as good as I've seen in a USB interface
-High quality built in pre-amps, apparently the same as the scarlett
-Low noise, sounds fabulous
-Separate gain controls for the mic and guitar inputs
-Front mounted headphone jack
-Attractive, small footprint
-Comes with (ridiculously short) iPad cable
The cons (as compared to the Scarlett 2i2)
-Unbalanced outputs which are fine for home use but might be limiting if you are playing live
-No line inputs, so not suitable for recording hardware synthesizers, guitar and mic only
-No separate volume knob for the headphones. I need to unplug the speakers if I only want sound in the headphones
-Only one mic input, so not suitable for live stereo recording
So while the Focusrite iTrack Solo sounds just as good as the Scarlett 2i 2with the same amazing low latency , I would think even the simplest home studios would miss the separate headphone volume knob, line inputs and live stereo recording capability of the Scarlett 2i2. The Scarlett 2i4 with multiple unbalanced and balanced outputs would probably be an even better choice for anyone who occasionally performs live.
