Focusrite Debuts iTrack Solo iOS Interface

Focusrite has introduced its iTrack Solo, a hardware interface designed to allow 2-channel recording in any iOS device; specifically the iPad.  Although compatible with PC’s, the iTrack was specifically designed to use with the iOS GarageBand software.  The unit itself comes with LED indicators for input levels, as well as separate input controls for both microphones and amplified sources – it also has on-board connections for direct loudspeaker routing.

The beauty of a hardware recording unit (opposed to software recording), is the latency free monitoring and the high-quality, unadulterated signal that it’s capable of producing.  It will be available in October at around $160.
