Product Description

Versatile and practical - with 6 audio inputs and 2 audio outputs, MIDI I/O and USB hub, the A62 m offers mobility and quality in 1 compact interface. This makes it the ideal multi-purpose interface for use on the road or in your personal studio setup.

High Quality Audio I/O
The A62 m is the perfect cross-platform USB interface solution for all audio applications, meeting the needs of today's and tomorrow's audio professionals. It provides a stereo headphone jack, stereo S/PDIF digital I/O, 6 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs at 16 or 24-bit with sample rates up to 96 kHz (24Bit/96 kHz stereo operation only).

The 6 independent inputs are ideal if you wish to work with multiple sound sources using the virtual mixing console of your audio software such as Logic. And thanks to the unique technology developed by Emagic, multi-channel audio transfer via USB takes place without any data reduction. This ensures maximum audio quality throughout the 8-channel signal path.

The coaxial S/PDIF connectors allow digital audio devices, such as external digital effects processors and DAT machines, to be connected directly without conversion losses.

Low Latency
Due to Emagic's advanced low latency technology, virtual software instruments such as Emagic's EVP88, EVD6, EVB3, EXS24, ES1, ES2 and VST2.0-compatible instruments can be played in real-time. Latencies of only a few milliseconds are possible. ***The latency time depends on your computer, the operating system and the number of parallel audio tracks/instruments. For low latency operation, Core Audio, ASIO or EASI drivers should be used. Typical latencies are around 6 ms.

Zero Latency Hardware Monitoring
The A62 m features latency-free hardware monitoring. This allows the monitoring of audio recording channels with no audible delay. The stereo monitor signal is routed to the analog, digital and integrated headphone outputs, latter with independent volume control.

MIDI I/O
The A62 m provides two cinch (RCA) connectors which can be configured as either S/PDIF or as MIDI in and output ports.

The MIDI I/O offers 16 MIDI in and output channels. In many compact setups, the built-in MIDI I/O makes additional MIDI interfaces unnecessary, especially when portability is the key requirement.

Built-In USB Hub
The built-in USB hub has 2 ports, providing space for additional USB hardware such as the XSKey, Emagic's software protection system. This further emphasizes the advantages on offer to the mobile or laptop studio.

USB Powered
Power is supplied via the USB port, with no need for additional cabling or adapters. And swapping an A62 m between computers takes only a few seconds -- plug-and-play operation at its best.

Synchronization
The clock source selector switch allows the A62 m to act as a digital master or slave device. When acting as master, the A62 m uses its precise internal audio clock. When slaving, the A62 m will lock to any external S/PDIF clock signal arriving at its digital input.

Stay Informed
The A62 m incorporates a number of status LEDs to keep you informed: digital/analog input selection, Bit depth, sample rate and external/ internal synchronization. Each input and output features an individual LED that indicates the presence of a signal on the respective input or output channel.

Cross-Platform and Compatible
The A62 m is delivered with cross-platform low-latency drivers including support for Mac OS X Core Audio, EASI and ASIO (Mac OS 9 and Windows). The A62 m is therefore the ideal choice for Emagic's Logic Series and any other software that supports these drivers.

Mobile and Versatile
The stylish exterior A62 m is lightweight and compact, approximately the size of a VHS videocassette. A black soft case is included to protect the A62 m from scratches and dirt during transport. The ability to be powered via USB, the multiple inputs, the MIDI I/O, the built-in dual USB hub, and its low size and weight, combine to make the A62 m the first choice audio interface for a wide variety of production tasks. Whether in small studio setups or on the road, the A62 m is also an excellent match for all laptop computers with USB.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (33 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"I'm popping my top!"
Sound: It would sound fine if I could get rid of crackles and pops. Searching the Logic forums at Sonikmatter tells me that many people have problems. I've tried a million suggestions, and ultimately can't get rid of popping noises. Set the buffer size minimal, and you're almost rid of them, but then my G5 can't keep up with large polyphony. Feature: Man! Midi, extra USB port, ins/outs, headphone, this was the unit that had it all when I bought it. Right now the lack of mic input is a bit of a limitation. Quality: It's a bit light weight, and the headphone output feels like it'll ultimately go, but in general it's fine. Value: At the time it was worth the money. Right now there are plenty of alternatives. Manufacturer Support: Let me get back to you on that. The Wow Factor: It looks cool, has many features. But "I want it to work". Overall: I'm shopping for something else. Even intermittent pops are pops and they are driving me crazy. This seems to be largely a problem with Logic on the Mac, but I've heard other hosts and platforms with the same problem.
