[spoiler show=”Show Press Release” hide=”Hide Press Release”]Focusrite iTrack Solo Brings Quality Recording To iPad®
Record guitar and vocals with a Focusrite mic preamp
With a quarter of a century of experience building legendary pro-audio equipment for top recording studios around the world, leading UK-based pro-audio manufacturer Focusrite turns its attention to recording on the iPad with the launch of the new iTrack Solo – a compact, rugged 2-channel interface for the iOS platform. It is also fully compatible with Mac and PC computers.
Focusrite?s iTrack Solo is a dual-input audio interface designed for recording instruments
and vocals, bringing Focusrite versatility and no-compromise sound quality to the world
of iPad audio recording for the first time. iTrack Solo is the perfect companion for any
singer/songwriter wanting to take their demos to the next level – with audio quality that?s so good, they can be used in the final mix. The interface is compatible with GarageBand and other popular recording apps, and it can be used on a Mac or PC with up to 24- bit/96kHz digital performance.
iTrack Solo features a professional, low-distortion, low-noise Focusrite microphone preamp as used in Focusrite?s flagship Liquid Saffire 56 interface. Phantom power allows the use of top-quality studio microphones, and alongside the microphone input on the front panel
there?s an instrument input that?s perfect for guitar and bass, along with the very best in digital conversion for the ultimate in quality. With its rugged unibody aluminium chassis, it?s perfect for recording guitar or keyboard and vocal on the go.
Owners of Focusrite?s popular Scarlett 2i2 USB interface will find the layout and features quite familiar – in fact iTrack Solo is based on the proven technology found in Focusrite?s existing range of computer audio interfaces. Focusrite?s signature “halo” indicators around the input knobs let you know if you are recording at the correct level (green) or at too high a level (red). There?s a large monitor knob that controls the output level. Monitoring can be switched to listen to your recording signal against your backing track without incurring off-putting latency introduced by your music software.
