Focusrite iTrack Dock Review

Alesis got innovative a couple of years ago when they released the first real solution to iPad recording with the Alesis IO Dock. It has been updated since then with the Alesis IO Dock 2 and now other companies are stepping up to the plate with their own iPad audio interface. Enter the Focusrite iTrack Dock built for the latest generation of iPad, iPad Air, and iPad Mini.

Focusrite have some outstanding circuitry and microphone preamps in their interfaces, and that same technology is on board the iTrack Dock. We decided to dive a little deeper to see what the Focusrite iTrack Dock offers for mobile recording so you can decide if the iTrack Dock is right for you.

Presonus Audiobox iOne & iTwo Interface Review

Presonus have been releasing a lot of audio interfaces over the years from their mobile FireStudio line all the way up to their large console StudioLive line. The AudioBox line has been equally popular in providing high quality preamps into very mobile boxes. The latest addition to the AudioBox line from Presonus are the AudioBox iOne and iTwo audio interfaces. These new interfaces have the same quality and portability of previous AudioBox interfaces, but Presonus have added iPad connectivity to allow integration with popular recording apps for a truly mobile recording experience.

Portability is great but how do the AudioBox iOne and iTwo stack up in terms of quality? We decided to take a closer look at these new interfaces to see what they have to offer.

The iOne has a single XLR input as well as a single instrument input. The XLR input has switchable 48 volt …

Apogee One Overview

As much as I would not like to be the old man on the porch talking about things in my day, I can’t help but express a deep emphasis on the fact that you kids today have things so much better than when I was trying to record my music. Nowhere is this more evident than with the Apogee One; a 2 in and 2 out audio interface that works exclusively with Apple computers and iOS devices. To get you recording right out of the box, Apogee provide you with a breakout cable that includes an XLR input and a 1/4 inch instrument input. There is also a high quality microphone built right into the interface so you can get ideas down anywhere and at anytime. You can also trust that the microphone will give you a quality recording if you want to use it for your final production.…
