At the 2016 NAMM Show, Tracktion was showing its upcoming Copper Reference Stereo I/O Interface.
With the Copper Reference, Tracktion did not want to duplicate the many existing mainstream audio interfaces. Instead, they wanted to apply ‘American hot rod mentality’, to creating a boutique, high-end stereo interface.
In this video, from the NAMM Show floor, Tracktion’s James ‘Woody’ Woodburn gives us the details on the Copper Reference.
They say that the Copper Reference Stereo I/O Interface is handcrafted, using ‘the finest silicon money can buy’, for transparency. A selectable tube-power overdrive circuit is also onboard, to add as little or as much tube character as you like.
Details are to come, but Tracktion expects the Copper Reference to be available mid 2016, priced around US $5,000.
