Today Focusrite announced the launch of its iTrack Studio, a complete system for recording music on the Apple iPad (or Mac/Windows computer) with “everything a musician needs” in the kit.
Based around Focusrite’s iTrack Solo, a 2-in, 2-out computer audio interface, the iTrack Studio kit includes closed-back monitor headphones, a studio-quality condenser microphone with included XLR mic cable, and a long 30-pin device link cable to connect the audio interface to the iPad. Record both channels of audio to Tape by Focusrite, a free iOS app (available Autumn 2013 from the App Store).
- Everything required to get started recording music right away on iPad, or Mac/Windows computers.
- Includes studio-quality microphone and monitor headphones. iTrack Studio comes with a CM25S studio condenser mic, XLR cable and HP60S closed-back studio headphones.
- Up to 24-bit, 96kHz recording for superb sound.
- Connect directly to the iPad with 1.2 meter, 30-pin Device Link cable. Also connects to iPad 4 and iPad mini via an inexpensive Lightning adapter.
- Use iTrack Studio with free iPad app Tape by Focusrite, as well as with GarageBand, Cubasis, or any number of other existing iPad recording apps.
