Avid today announced the first new M-Audio recording interface since re-branding Digidesign under the Avid corporate moniker. And these units are sweet. All the basics are there that you would expect – mic/line inputs, line outputs, 24/96, s/pdif in and out, MIDI I/O – but what makes these units an incredible value are the added features:
- Built-in monitor management system – allows you to switch between 3 sets of studio monitors, fantastic!
- Multi button – program to put repetitive tasks at the touch of a button
- Reassignable transport controls – use as they are – what a great feature – or assign each button to a different function of your choosing
- Pro Tools SE software included or step up to M-powered
And finally – meters! This is a sleek looking interface that combines great tactile control surface features with a hardware interface and included software that allows you to record music right away. There are well produced videos on line that go into the details of these new interfaces. If it sounds as good as it looks, these new units will be huge! Can’t wait to get my hands on one.
Make great music with three tools in one.
