Focusrite iTrack Solo offers an extremely affordable, entry level USB audio interface loaded with an award winning microphone preamp. Focusrite iTrack Solo also comes designed for use with the iPad, featuring a compact and rugged construction that boasts 2-channel operation. As iTrack Solo includes a USB interface, so you can also use it with standard PC/Mac platforms.
iTrack Solo comes with a single high-quality Focusrite mic preamp as found in all current Scarlett and Saffire interfaces and includes a separate instrument input. This USB audio interface offers compatibilitye with Garage Band and other popular recording apps, and can be used on a Mac or PC with up to 24-bit/96kHz digital performance.
With iTrack Solo 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. The unique halo signal indicators, also found on Scarlett 2i2, will let you know that you’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. Focusrite iTrack Solo also ships with Ableton Live Lite, powerful recording and sequencing software allowing you to create music as well as Focusrite’s Scarlett Plug-In Suite, which provides effects essential to recording, including Reverb, Compression, Gate and EQ.
