Boasting an elegant pro-grade metal chassis with a large central monitor volume knob, the M-Track 8X4M features transparent low-noise Crystal Preamps™ and pristine A/D converters that deliver the highest audio performance in its class. These pre-amps provide amazing audio quality that capture your performance exactly the way you intended.
The overall combination of professional audio performance, easy-to-use features, and the included software bundle makes the M-Track 8X4M an amazingly versatile, high-performance audio interface that will conquer any recording session with ease.
When recording, you want to focus on capturing that perfect moment, and getting the best performance out of your artist and talent. You don’t want to be bogged down by clicks, pops or latency. The M-Track 8X4M not only features a high-speed USB connection for providing the lowest round trip latency (2.59ms*) between your machine and your hardware, but it also features monitor mix control for listening directly to the source inputs, providing you with zero-latency technology.
*Round trip latency is dependent on buffer settings, and computer hardware
The M-Track 8X4M features 8 inputs for simultaneously recording up to 8 channels at once to meet all your studio’s recording needs. The (4) dedicated XLR/TRS Mic/Line combo inputs with Crystal Preamps™ and phantom power are perfect for recording a vocalist, or vocalists, mic’ing up an acoustic guitar, vintage guitar or bass amp or the core elements of a drum kit. The (2) ¼” dedicated Instrument inputs use specially designed gain and impedance staging to provide the cleanest signal from your guitar, bass or keyboard, while the (2) ¼” dedicated Line inputs provide a pure uncolored signal for connecting a tube preamp, keyboard, synth or mixer, and MIDI input and output for connecting any of your boutique synth gear.
At the center of the M-Track 8X4M is a large metal monitor volume knob with inlayed rubberized diamond textured comfort grip for dialing in your studio monitor’s volume, and smoothly referencing your mix at both high and low levels. The monitor and headphone outputs feature a direct mono/stereo switch and direct/USB mix knob. The (2) ¼” headphone outputs have independent volume controls, and source select switches let you create mixes to suit your and your artist’s needs. In addition to the (2) ¼” rear panel monitor outputs, the M-Track 8X4M sports an additional (2) ¼” outputs for connecting outboard gear.
When capturing a performance, you want to get the best levels possible. With the M-Track 8X4M’s segmented input VU LEDs (-20db through 0dB), you can dial in the perfect gain setting every time, so there’s no more guessing how close or far away you are from optimizing your signal.
The M-Track 8X4M comes complete with a software package that has everything to get you started making professional recordings right of the box. With 2 powerful DAWs to suit your production needs, M-Track 8X4M includes the industry standard Pro Tools | First M-Audio Edition, and Ableton Live Lite.
