This version of the incredibly easy-to-use Focusrite iTrack Solo was made for Lightning-compatible iPads. The audio interface will record your instruments or vocals with its powerful preamp, and is also compatible with PC or Mac as well.
The Focusrite iTrack Solo is a powerful yet intuitive interface for recording instruments or vocals directly to your iPad, and PC or Mac. The preamp, a popular choice among many recording artists and professional musicians, will make sure that the amazing sounds that you're making will be picked up in the recording. All you have to do is connect the iTrack Solo to a device, such as a lightning-compatible iPad, as well as a power supply and you're ready to make great music!
Once it's powered-up, you can use the microphone input and dedicated instrument input simultaneously to record both sound sources. You can record yourself belting out a ballad, or use dedicated apps on the iPad to add groovy effects to your Guitar sound. Check out the video below for a quick introduction on just how easy it is to lay down your music:
With the unique signal lights on each gain knob, the Focusrite iTrack Solo will let you know when you've got a great sound, or when you're a little too loud and you should turn down. Not only does the iTrack Solo let you record sound, it can also output to your Hi-Fi, headphones, or other speakers, letting you immediately hear the fantastic sound that this interface is achieving. Focusrite have even built in an ingenious direct monitor function, allowing you to completely cancel out all latency when recording, keeping this frustration-free. And all of this housed in a rugged metal casing, protecting it from the amount of transporting you'll inevitably be doing.
The Focusrite iTrack Solo is a fantastically usable, eminently affordable solution to recording your vocals or instrument through an iPad. It's easy-to-use and sounds great, ensuring that everything, and more, that you play gets preserved in your chosen interface, whether that's Garageband or Ableton or any of the numerous options available.
