Ideal for the mobile musician, M-Track Plus will transform your laptop into a mobile studio. The circuit design minimizes laptop battery drain, and the rugged aluminum case is ready to travel. With the Plus of a coaxial S/PDIF connection, M-Track Plus can live at the heart of your digital studio. Completing this powerful package are two complementary software selections: Avid® Pro Tools® Express and Ignite by AIR music creation software. Together, they deliver a comprehensive path for transforming the ideas in your head into a finished piece of music.
M-Track Plus offers compatibility with a range of audio sources — including digital. 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 Plus. In addition, S/PDIF (coax) in and out jacks provided direct access to digital studio equipment. 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 Plus 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 Plus 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 Plus settings.
Your M-Track Plus interface comes complete with both Avid® Pro Tools® Express and Ignite by AIR. These two programs can work alone or together to help you realize your musical dreams. Pro Tools Express starts with 16 simultaneous stereo or mono audio tracks. Add in the virtual instruments from AIR Music Technology and finish off with dozens of high-powered effect plug-ins. Ignite provides a refreshingly original and musician-centric way to quickly capture, combine, and arrange your musical ideas. When you’re ready to collaborate with other musicians, you can share your ideas through SoundCloud, or export your WAV and MIDI files and import them into any DAW software — including Pro Tools.
