Start Recording With This Budget-Friendly USB Audio Interface

Plug the M-Audio M-Track USB audio interface into your computer, fire up your favorite music-production software, and you're ready to start recording! This two-channel interface puts phantom-powered XLR mic/line/instrument inputs, MIDI I/O, direct monitoring, bundled software, and much more at your fingertips, giving you easy ways to record and polish anything from electric guitar or bass to vocals and keyboards, with either studio monitors or headphones as your extra set of ears. Connect to your computer and power up via the included USB cable.

2 Channels of Awesome

The portable M-Track offers just what you need to get a basic digital music studio up and running with high-quality, 48 kHz/24-bit digital audio processing. On each of its two channels, the M-Track has a phantom-powered XLR input for working with microphones or low-impedance sources, a balanced 1/4-inch input with level switching for plugging in electric guitars or basses directly, and an insert jack for hooking up outboard gear or effects. Get your levels just right with a turn of the gain knob.

MIDI I/O Included

If you're making music, chances are that you'll be working with MIDI. Conveniently for you, this USB audio interface also supports 16 channels of MIDI data and timing information, with 5-pin DIN MIDI IN and OUT jacks on the back panel.

Hear Music the Way It's Supposed to Sound

Monitor with your choice of speakers or headphones, and use a handy monitor mix knob to fine-tune the balance between the direct inputs and the playback from your computer software. Want straight-forward, low-latency monitoring options? Here you go. There's even a Stereo/Mono switch that lets you monitor the input signals in stereo or mono.

At-A-Glance LED Metering

Multi-color LED metering shows you what's up, so you always know where you stand with your levels. The M-Track's bright LEDs provide instant visual feedback of the settings and main output levels.

Bundled Software

Your M-Track arrives, and you're ready to start making music pronto. It's a good thing that the audio interface comes with AIR Ignite and Ableton Live Lite music-production software. Install the bundled software on your computer and you'll have access to powerful recording and arrangement features, editing tools, file-sharing/exporting features, instrument sounds, and more.

Product Description

M-Track opens the door to computer-based music making. The M-Track interface from M-Audio transforms your computer into a digital recording studio with plug-and-play simplicity. A single USB cable provides both power and a data connection to and from your laptop or desktop computer. M-Track offers the right connections for any instrument, from an electric guitar to a professional condenser mic -- phantom power is provided. The low-profile format delivers professional control in a portable package. M-Track includes both Ignite by AIR and Ableton(TM) Live Lite music software programs.

Accommodating Inputs

M-Track is equipped with a versatile array of inputs to provide the best results with any type of audio source. Each channel offers an XLR input and a balanced 1/4" input. The XLR input is designed to work with microphones or other Lo-Z sources. The phantom power switch delivers 48V to the XLR inputs for use with professional condenser microphones. The 1/4" input can be set to receive line level signal, or switched to allow an electric guitar or bass to be plugged directly into the M-Track. The gain knob ensures the proper input level.

Inserts

Each input channel is also equipped with an insert jack, a professional addition not often found in this class of interface. The insert jack allows studio-grade effects to be used with any input source as you record.

Improved Monitoring for Better Recordings

M-Track offers ultra-low latency monitoring of the input signal--either through the speakers or via headphones. The monitor mix knob adjusts the balance between the direct inputs and the playback from your computer software. In addition, the input signal(s) can be monitored in stereo or mono using the convenient Stereo/Mono switch. This makes it easy to record parts or add parts to an existing composition. The Headphone output offers its own level control.

MIDI Matters

In addition to the two audio channels, M-Track also support 16 channels of MIDI data and timing information. The MIDI In and MIDI out jack are compatible with all MIDI equipment.

LED Metering

Multi-color LED metering provides instant visual feedback of the main output levels, as well as the status of various M-Track settings.

Ignite

Ignite provides a refreshingly original and musician-centric way to quickly capture, combine, and arrange your musical ideas. The intuitive graphic interface encourages you to experiment and explore directions. Smart MIDI Chord and Phrase Players empower your ideas and bring them to life through over 275 superior instruments sounds created by AIR Music Technology. When you're ready to collaborate with other musicians or take your ideas to the next level, you can share them through SoundCloud, or export your WAV, MP3 and MIDI files and import them into Pro Tools--or any DAW software. Best of all, Ignite offers seamless integration with your M-Audio keyboard controller, with no set-up chores to perform.

Features:

- 24-bit / 48 kHz digital audio processing

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
