Sims Audio has introduced the Amon USB recording interface, a two channel USB interface that features a high quality microphone preamp, a line level/instrument input, and MIDI I/O. The Amon includes a software package from Native Instruments including: Absynth 4, Massive, and Traktor 3 demo software.
The Amon is USB bus powered and requires no extra power supply or wall-wart. The lack of power supply and small size make the Amon ideal for location recording. The Amon also supports zero latency direct hardware monitoring so can hear exactly what is coming from the recording source. A powered headphone amp is included in the Amon’s chassis and it accepts a 1/4″ headphone input. The AMON comes with a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.
The AMON has a MSRP of $225 USD.
