2-In/4-Out 24/192 USB Audio Interface
No-compromise professional studio quality and features at an amazing value!
With the M-Audio AIR 192|8, you can create 24-bit/192kHz studio-quality recordings with an intuitive and easy-to-use audio interface. Boasting an elegant pro-grade metal chassis with a large central volume knob, the AIR 192|8 features M-Audio's exclusive Crystal low-noise pre-amps and pristine A/D converters that deliver the highest audio performance in its class. The M-Audio AIR 192|8’s flexible inputs enable you to record up to 2 channels at once with its 2 dedicated XLR+1/4-inch balanced combo inputs with switchable -10dB mic pad, and 2 all-new 1/4-inch instrument inputs that have a specially designed gain and impedance stage to provide the most accurate representation of a guitar or bass plugged directly into the interface.
The (2) 1/4-inch and (4) RCA outputs with USB/Direct control, and Direct Mono/Stereo switch provide multiple output options for connecting to outboard gear, DJ mixers, or studio monitors. The headphone output with independent level, USB/Direct, and switchable 1/2 or 3/4 audio stream controls are perfect for discretely listening to a cue mix, sub mix, or main mix. MIDI In and Out connections are included for connecting synths, sequencers and external MIDI gear.
The M-Audio AIR 192|8 connects to your Mac or PC via a standard USB or USB-C port using one of the two included cables. This premium hi-speed USB connection enables you to have zero-latency monitoring of your inputs, making the recording process easier than ever.
