M-Audio Introduces M-Track 8x4M USB-C Audio Interface

October 4 2018, 00:25
With 8 inputs, 4 outputs, audiophile-grade Crystal Preamps, Hi-speed USB-C connection, USB/Direct control for zero latency and support for 24-bit/192kHz audio, the new M-Audio M-Track 8X4M is a very nice studio-quality audio interface for an affordable price. Finally, pro audio manufacturers are noticing the advantages of the updated USB-C interface and are making available the technology to home- and project-studios at the most affordable level.

An 8-in 4-out feature-packed USB audio interface that provides all of the connections needed to easily create professional 24-bit/192kHz studio-quality recordings, the M-Audio M-Track 8X4M interface boasts an elegant pro-grade metal chassis with a large central monitor volume knob and features transparent low-noise microphone preamplifiers and pristine A/D converters that deliver the highest audio performance in its class.

The M-Track 8X4M features (4) XLR+ 1/4" TRS combo inputs, (2) 1/4" line inputs and (2) 1/4" instrument inputs that have a specially designed gain and impedance stage to provide the most accurate representation of guitar or bass when plugged directly into the interface, along with a MIDI input and output. The interface also offers a stereo pair of 1/4" studio monitor outputs, and (2) 1/4" assignable outputs. Two musicians can have their own separate mixes while recording by using the (2) 1/4" headphone outputs with independent source and level controls. 

To make things safe for those users less aware that technology moves-on, the M-Track 8X4M can connect to either a "standard" old USB A port or the faster USB-C port on any Mac or PC (even if Macs already all offer faster speeds with Thunderbolt 3, but at least the USB-C interface will be compatible, just supporting "only" 10Gbps speeds). Cables for both interfaces are included: a USB C to C cable and a USB C to A cable. The premium Hi-Speed USB connection and USB/direct control enables users to have zero-latency monitoring, making the recording process easier than ever. 

The overall combination of professional audio performance, easy-to-use features, and the included software bundle makes the M-Track 8X4M an amazingly versatile, high-performance audio interface, perfect for any recording session. The M-Track 8X4M comes complete with a software package that has everything needed to make professional recordings right away. With 2 powerful DAWs to suit any production needs, M-Track 8X4M includes Pro Tools | First M-Audio Edition, and Ableton Live Lite. M-Audio also added an entire Effects Plugin, and Virtual Instruments package to cater to all production needs.

M-Audio (m-audio.com) began as Midiman, a driving force in the desktop recording revolution that followed the introduction of MIDI in the 1980s. The brand was for more than a decade the home-studio division for Avid and today it is a member of the inMusic family of brands, focusing on computer interfaces and home studio solutions, from keyboard and controllers to microphones and studio monitors.

U.S. retail for the M-Audio 8X4M is $299.00 and it will be available in Q4 2018.
