Yamaha Intros New Mobile FireWire Audio I/O with Software Suite

Yamaha Firewire InterfaceYamaha’s new portable GO46 Mobile 24/192 FireWire Audio/MIDI Interface is a designed to be a complete  ecording solution for active musicians.

“The FireWire audio I/O devices market is rapidly expanding,” states Athan Billias, Director of Marketing for Technology Products at Yamaha. “With the GO46, Yamaha partners with Steinberg to include the strongest software bundle in the market, providing a complete hardware and software system solution for the musician looking to record at home or on the go.”

Compact and ready to go in a moments notice, the GO46 is big on features; some never before seen at this price point. Two front mounted combo inputs feature independently selectable phantom power and gain
controls allowing connection of a powered source and a non-powered source simultaneously, which means the GO46 can record a vocal using a condenser microphone and guitar input at the same time. Two inserts for adding outboard gear such as compressors, EQ, or effects, and a headphone out with independent level control add to the unit’s versatility.

The GO46 has a total of 4 in and 6 out with recording resolution up to 24 bit, 192 kHz and is bus-powered for mobility. It comes with a complete cross-platform PC/Mac software suite including Cubase LE, Groove Agent SE, HALion SE, Sample Tank SE, Sonic Synth 2 SE, Amplitube LE and T- Racks EQ as well as an ASIO 2.0 driver for ultra-low latency.

Add to all this DTS and Dolby AC3 playback compatibility for those working in surround and you have an incredibly powerful and flexible interface at a very low price point.
