From the Manufacturer
Two-Channel USB Audio/MIDI Interface
Using a single USB cable, M-Track transforms your desktop or laptop computer into a digital recording studio with plug-and-play simplicity. From an electric guitar to a professional condenser mic, M-Track offers the right connections for any instrument or any performer. Compatible with nearly all music software, M-Track includes both Ignite by AIR and Ableton™ Live Lite to get things started.
M-Track offers compatibility with a range of audio sources. Each channel offers an XLR input for use with microphones or other Lo-Z sources, plus a balanced 1/4" input. The phantom power switch delivers 48V to the XLR inputs for use with condenser microphones. The 1/4" line input can be switched to allow an electric guitar or bass to be plugged directly into the M-Track. The gain knob ensures the proper input level. Each channel is equipped with an insert jack for adding studio-grade effects as you record—a professional addition not often found in this class of interface.
Improved Monitoring for Better Recordings
M-Track offers ultra-low latency monitoring of the input signal. The monitor mix knob adjusts the balance between the direct inputs and the playback from your computer software. This makes it easy to record new parts or add layers to an existing composition. The Headphone output offers its own level control. In addition to the two audio channels, M-Track also supports 16 channels of MIDI data and timing information. The MIDI In and MIDI Out jack are compatible with all MIDI equipment. Multi-color LED metering provides instant visual feedback of the main output levels, as well as the status of various M-Track settings.
