OVERVIEW

Two-channel USB audio/MIDI interface.

The M-Track interface from M-Audio® transforms your computer into a digital recording studio with plug-and-play simplicity. A single USB cable provides both power and a data connection to and from your laptop or desktop computer. M-Track offers the right connections for any instrument, from an electric guitar to a professional condenser mic—phantom power is provided. The low-profile format delivers professional control in a portable package. M-Track includes both Ignite by AIR and Ableton™ Live Lite music software programs.

Accommodating Inputs
M-Track is equipped with a versatile array of inputs to provide the best results with any type of audio source. Each channel offers an XLR input and a balanced 1/4" input. The XLR input is designed to work with microphones or other Lo-Z sources. The phantom power switch delivers 48V to the XLR inputs for use with professional condenser microphones. The 1/4" input can be set to receive line level signal, or switched to allow an electric guitar or bass to be plugged directly into the M-Track. The gain knob ensures the proper input level.

Inserts
Each input channel is also equipped with an insert jack, a professional addition not often found in this class of interface. The insert jack allows studio-grade effects to be used with any input source as you record.

Improved Monitoring for Better Recordings
M-Track offers ultra-low latency monitoring of the input signal—either through the speakers or via headphones. The monitor mix knob adjusts the balance between the direct inputs and the playback from your computer software. In addition, the input signal(s) can be monitored in stereo or mono using the convenient Stereo/Mono switch. This makes it easy to record new parts or add parts to an existing composition. The Headphone output offers its own level control.

MIDI Matters
In addition to the two audio channels, M-Track also support 16 channels of MIDI data and timing information. The MIDI In and MIDI out jack are compatible with all MIDI equipment.

LED Metering
Multi-color LED metering provides instant visual feedback of the main output levels, as well as the status of various M-Track settings.

Ignite
Ignite provides a refreshingly original and musician-centric way to quickly capture, combine, and arrange your musical ideas. The intuitive graphic interface encourages you to experiment and explore new directions. Smart MIDI Chord and Phrase Players empower your ideas and bring them to life through over 275 superior instruments sounds created by AIR Music Technology. When you’re ready to collaborate with other musicians or take your ideas to the next level, you can share them through SoundCloud, or export your WAV and MIDI files and import them into Pro Tools—or any DAW software. Best of all, Ignite offers seamless integration with your M-Audio keyboard controller, with no set-up chores to perform.

FEATURES
  • Audio and MIDI unites your computer-based music studio
  • USB power provides convenience and mobility
  • Phantom power plus guitar-level switching accommodates any audio source
  • Insert jack on each channel easily incorporate your favorite effects

        Comments about M-Audio M-Track with Ignite:

        After a few hours, I got the device to record through Audacity. Ableton Live never recorded, just that annoying beeping sound waiting for me to play. I would play, VU meter shows sound playing, but wouldn't record or create instrument.
        I having trouble adjusting sound levels on M-audio. It's not ready right out of the box. The instructions are incorrect.
        I just built a new I7 machine for recording but I'm wishing I had just bought aan old cassette deck and saved all this hassle.

        Comments about M-Audio M-Track with Ignite:

        I have a had a Fast track maudio interface. I have a friend that is interested in recording. I have upgraded my interface to this model and giving him my old one that still works great. I have recorded several albums with it, and very happy with the results. Now I can do some projects with my friend, since we are both running protools, and I can record with other musicians in live time.

          Latency and Playback Issues

          Comments about M-Audio M-Track with Ignite:

          The unit is very easy to use, but had too much latency when my guitar amp was mic'ed. The ASIO download solved the latency problem, but had issues cutting out on playbacks. Needed to download newer versions of the ASIO driver twice. Also, could not get the guitar amp direct line out to register with the line input. Had to stick with mic'ing the guitar amp.

          Comments about M-Audio M-Track with Ignite:

          Still not sure. I bought it to replace my E-Mu 0404USB because of the Win7 issues and it specified Windows 7 in the literature. I am using both its own ASIO driver and ASIO4All. Sometimes I get terrible distortion. I restart the ASIO and it usually clears up. Sometimes I need to select the other ASIO driver. Might be a Windows 7 thing. I don't know. I would recommend it but just barely. I'd rather leave that blank.

                Comments about M-Audio M-Track with Ignite:

                Worked right out of the box with my Macbook Pro and Garageband. Went into Garageband preferences, chose my input and output settings, which showed up immediately without installing any drivers or additional software, and began recording within minutes. Only issue I had, which was more of a personal preference, is that I wish it had another headphone jack for the second channel, but other than that it is well worth the money for as simple as it was to use,

                This unit offers a seamless interface with ProTools software. It is easy to setup and start using right out of the box. This is very important when you are under time constraints. Can be easily integrated into your live performances as it provides integration of your microphone, instrument and midi all in one lightweight, compact device.
