M-Audio latest audio interface is the FireWire Solo, designed from the ground up as an easy-to-use interface for recording guitar tracks on the computer.
This compact bus-powered unit is small enough to go anywhere--perfect for desktop or laptops. The metal chassis can be rack-mounted as well. In addition to the 1/4" guitar input right on the front panel, a microphone input with phantom power also accommodates recording of vocals, acoustic guitars and other instruments. Both of these inputs feature gain control and clipping LEDs. There are also dual line inputs for effects, drum machines and other outboard gear. Coaxial S/PDIF digital I/O provides both 2-channel PCM and pass-through of AC-3 and DTS surround-encoded content.
FireWire Solo can be powered via the FireWire bus or optional power supply,and dual FireWire ports allow easy chaining of FireWire devices.
FireWire Solo is currently shipping at an MSRP of $249.95 USD.
