Description Introducing Impact Twin...

Impact Twin is a brand new, state of the art audio interface that features ground-breaking technology to ensure that the music you record sounds as good on the inside of your computer as it does on the outside. How?

Well, Impact Twin’s two mic preamps utilize our Impact III™ Technology which itself features three stages of top level processing. You get a high quality and very flexible mic preamp, superior 24/192 HD Conversion, plus a set of recording Channel Tools that lets you shape and optimize your sound making it the perfect recording. With each of these stages carefully combined behind Impact Twin’s rugged and cool looking exterior, you have a ‘take anywhere’ device that offers the ultimate in recording quality.

Let’s look in more detail at those all-important stages.

The Impact III Mic preamp makes the best of any microphone. So whether you record with the finest vintage tube mics, the most demanding low-budget condensers, or even a handheld dynamic, Impact Twin has been designed from the ground up to maximize the signal you record into your DAW. And with the two Impact III mic preamps, Impact Twin gives you maximum flexibility. Whether recording instrument, line or mic, with or without phantom power, Impact Twin works the way you need it to.

However, no matter how good your mic preamps, if your signal path doesn’t then lead on to the best converters then you may as well pack up and go home. Impact Twin’s 24/192 HD Convertors let you select your conversion rate – all the way from 44.1kHz right up to High Definition 192kHz for the ultimate in pristine audio capture, maintaining the essential transients of your sound.

For years we’ve been innovating in the world of signal enhancement, so Impact Twin includes essential recording Channel Tools that go even further to optimize your sound with onboard EQ, Compressor and De-esser that quickly, simply and invisibly tame and enhance those signals – no matter what you’re recording.

Impact Twin What you play now really is 100% what you record. What you record now really is 100% what you play.
