Product Information

  • Overview

    Focusrite's iTrack Solo mic preamp provides the best solution for recording your instruments and vocals using an iPad. Featuring a Focusrite microphone preamp and an input to record directly from electric guitars, iTrack Solo is the perfect tool if you're a singer-songwriter who wants to take their demos to the next level. Using the very best in digital audio technology iTrack Solo can capture your sound with pristine quality. Simply plug in and press record.

    Directly connect your microphone or instrument

    Simply plug in your electric, electroacoustic, or bass guitar and microphone to record in pristine quality. There's a guitar input alongside the microphone input, so you're free to record vocals and your instrument simultaneously to separate tracks in your software.

    Signal halos for level and clip indication

    Two lights surround the input level knobs letting you know that you're recording at the correct volume. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the signal returns to a healthy level, at which point the halo will turn green again.

    Clear controls

    A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for the volume of your speakers and headphones, while a high-quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs—so you can hear the incoming signal with no latency from your music app.

    Connect directly to your speakers

    Outputs on the rear panel let you connect iTrack Solo to a pair of powered speakers or to your home hi-fi system. You can then control the speaker volume using the large dial on the front of iTrack Solo.

    Compatible with iPad, Mac OS X, and Windows

    iTrack Solo is a certified "Made for iPad" device that also works with Mac desktops or notebooks. That's why Focusrite includes Ableton Live Lite—a powerful recording and sequencing software allowing you to create music—and their own Scarlett Plug-In Suite, which provides Reverb, Compression, Gate, and EQ effects.

    High-quality award-winning microphone input

    Focusrite's long experience in professional recording really shows in the design of the input section of iTrack Solo, which features a clean, low-noise, low-distortion preamp. iTrack Solo also provides phantom power for professional condenser microphones.

In a tiny space it incorporates a pristine preamp, a well-designed interface, providing a lightweight answer to every portable recording engineer's dreams. For the traveling musician, engineer, or sound designer wanting to use an iPad to record on the go, there is no better interface.
