General

The M-Audio M-Track Eight is a 24-bit/96kHz USB audio interface with a rugged 19-inch housing. The eight XLR/jack combo inputs of the M-Track Eight are suited for microphone as well as line signals. Your guitar or bass guitar can be directly connected to the two front inputs thanks to a Hi-Z switch on the front panel. The M-Track Eight is equipped with exceptionally high-grade preamplifiers that guarantee beautiful recordings, and with a sound card that is compatible with both Mac and PC and has a maximum recording resolution of 24 bits/96 kHz.

Direct monitoring

The level of the incoming signals can be accurately monitored by means of the built-in meter bridge, and the M-Track Eight allows for zero-latency headphone monitoring - ideal when you're recording vocals or instrument parts. A monitor mix knob enables you to determine the balance between the incoming signals and the signal of your DAW. A built-in control room allows you to adjust the volume of your monitors and to listen to your audio in mono, and provides you with a DIM function. The two headphone connectors of the M-Track Eight can be switched between channels 1-2 and 3-4.

Pro Tools Express and Air Ignite

The M-Track Eight audio interface is supplied with an accessory copy of Avid Pro Tools Express. This starter version of Pro Tools offers you all the essentials you need to get started right away on your own recordings and compositions. A Pace iLok USB key is included for registration purposes. Also included with the M-Audio M-Track Eight is Air Ignite: a software MIDI sequencer with a wide range of instruments.
