TerraTec Ships Pro FireWire Audio Interface

Terratec producerTerraTec Producer is now shipping PHASE X24 FW, the professional version of PHASE 24 FW.

The interface sports two analog inputs (line, hi-Z or mic in with 48V phantom power), four outputs, digital I/O, MIDI I/O, insert jacks and gain knobs. The package includes Steinberg´s Cubase LE workstation software with 48 audio tracks, WaveLab lite 2.5 and Native Instruments Traktor DJ software.

The two combination jacks on the front panel of the external housing accept 6.3 mm (1/4″) jack plugs for instruments such as electric guitars and basses, as well as XLR connectors for microphones. Equipped with status and clip LEDs, these inputs’ levels are individually adjustable using two dedicated gain knobs. On demand, 48-volt phantom power can assigned separately to each channel.

With four line outs (two main and two monitor each!), the PHASE X 24 FW’s crystal-clear signals are easily sent loss-free to outboard devices. The device offers 24-bit /192-kHz signal processing and 111 dB signal-to-noise ratio. What’s more, two front-panel inserts accommodate external effectors, for instance, compressors and other signal processors.

An adjustable headphones output, a digital interface (optical) for S/PDIF, AC3 and DTS formats, and a MIDI I/O round out the range of connection options. Courtesy of a FireWire™-enabled link to users’ computers, all data are sent fast and latency-free to their destinations. All cords and adapters required to connect the device are included. TerraTec Producer’s extended audio system also ships with a handy tote bag.

TerraTec Producer´s PHASE X24 FW comes ready-to-go with Steinberg´s Cubase LE for Mac and PC, the PC version of WaveLab lite and NI´s Traktor DJ for PC.

Cubase LE is based on Steinbergs Cubase SX technology featuring 48 audio tracks, VST plugIns and full VST support. Cubase LE can easily be upgraded to an even more powerful version like Cubase SX3. In addition, Cubase LE is VST system link and ReWire 2 compatible.

Priced at 359.00 euros (MSRP), PHASE X 24 FW is available now.
