iTrack Solo provides the best solution for recording your instruments and vocals using an iPad. Featuring a Focusrite microphone preamp and an input to record directly from electric guitars, iTrack Solo is the perfect companion for any singer-songwriter wanting to take their demos to the next level. Using the very best in digital audio technology, iTrack Solo will capture your sound with pristine quality. Simply plug in and press record. It couldnâ??t be simpler.
Since 1985, Focusrite has been a leading manufacturer in the professional audio field. Focusrite mic pres have played a key part in the recording of hundreds of hit records and theyâ??re a top choice of leading artists, recording studios and engineers around the world. This experience has been used to great effect when designing the input section of iTrack Solo, which features a clean, low-noise, low-distortion preamp. iTrack Solo also provides phantom power for professional condenser microphones.
With a guitar input alongside the microphone input, you are free to record both vocals and your instrument simultaneously to separate tracks in your software*. You could even use both a microphone on your guitar and the guitar input at the same time to get a different sound.
Unique halo signal indicators, also found on Scarlett 2i2, let you know that youâ??ve got a good volume for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the signal returns to a healthy level, at which point the halo will turn green again.
A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for the volume of your speakers and headphones, whilst a high-quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs. This allows you to hear the incoming signal with no latency, which can be distracting and affect your performance.
On the rear panel you will find phono outputs allowing you to connect iTrack Solo to a pair of powered speakers, or to your home Hi-Fi system. The speaker volume can then be controlled using the large dial on the front of iTrack Solo meaning everything you need is within reach.
iTrack Solo will also work with Mac and PC allowing you to record with your desktop or laptop. There is an included version of Ableton Live Lite and Focusriteâ??s Scarlett Plug-In Suite, which provides essential effects for recording â?? Reverb, Compression, Gate and EQ.
*Please note that at current, GarageBand for iOS will record two simultaneous inputs to a single stereo track, which cannot be separated using iPad. The two separate signals can be separated by transferring your session to a Mac. Other apps are available which allow recording to two separate tracks simultaneously.
While this interface gets the job done, it also has a bit of latency issues from constant use. The single connection for XLR is annoying as well.
When i decided to buy this interface, i had certain things in my mind. I didnt need so many inputs, I needed pristine quality in my home recordings, i needed to use the interface both on my apple and windows devices. All done. No driver issues. No latency. This device is a bang for the buck.
