OVERVIEW

A compact and intuitive interface for your computer-based recording studio.

One of the most popular audio interfaces ever, the M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface is an affordable, reliable piece of equipment loaded with professional features for optimal mobile recording flexibility. You get 2 front-panel mic/line inputs complete with phantom power for condenser microphones, inserts for outboard effects, balanced and unbalanced analog outputs, S/PDIF digital I/O, MIDI I/O, and more.

The M-Audio Fast Track Pro also offers near-zero latency direct hardware monitoring and low-latency ASIO software monitoring, plus an A/B source switch and dual output pairs for DJ-style cueing. Compatible with most popular PC and Mac music software, the Fast Track interface's USB connection and bus power along with class compliancy for Mac OS X* make it a breeze to set up.

Professional Recording”Anywhere, Anytime
With the M-Audio Fast Track Pro, you'll get professional results whenever and wherever you want to record. A single USB connection gives you access to all the I/O you need for microphones and instruments like guitars, as well as MIDI- and S/PDIF-equipped digital audio gear. The microphone inputs are even phantom powered to accommodate studio-quality condenser microphones. M-Audio's acclaimed driver software gives you total routing control over the 4 x 4 I/O”including setting up an effects loop with external devices.

This product performs well, sounds great, and was a snap to set up on my MAC based Logic Studio. It comes with some outputs I do not use, but in general, it has everything one might need to run a home studio or a portable studio.

It is made of plastic, not metal, so some caution must be taken in handling. However, the product is sturdy and built well.

The only thing that did not please me was the lack of seperate volume controls for the rear outputs, but one can compensate by using a headphone amp plugged into one of the rear outputs and then using the amp to control the volume of the phones. This has nothing to do with the front headphone jack, which does have a seperate volume control. I just like using the rear outputs.

I use it to record a pre-recorded blog talk Internet radio show, and it performs like a champ. The set up was simple, and I use it on my MAC. The product's control panel (where you can select what outputs to use and what bit rate, etc.) will be placed in your MAC "System Preferences". Remember that! I installed the drivers and then I could not find the control panel anywhere. I read the instructions again, and found it in System Preferences.

The driver CD that comes with the product will be dated. However, it was a snap to go online, click on your product, and download the current and latest drivers for your unit.

I reccommend this product for the value.
I gave it a nine instead of a ten only because one cannot control the rear output(s) volume seperately. I had a PreSonus Firebox before it blew up and with it I could control the volume of my main studio monitors seperate from the volume (from the rear, not the headphone jack) to my headphone amp so I could run six headphones from the mix.

This is not a huge deal. I can "adjust" the headphone amp volume to make up the difference, but it was nice being able to set a level and leave it there without having to adjust the mains to compensate.
Quality: I gave it an eight instead of a ten only because it is made of plastic. However, the quality (sturdiness, dependability, etc) is excellent. Again, I went from a PreSonus FireBox that was in a metal casing with metal knobs, and it was heavey and sturdy (it also blew up on me after three years, so that is the quality there). The M-Audio is plastic, but I realize that if it were metel, it would cost $400-$500. It is sturdy, but it is plastic, and with that comes more careful handling.
You cannot beat this value! For the money, you get a full studio capable box and record up to four folks at a time. This has great outputs and sound and with plenty of features. This product is well worth the money. I would buy this one again.

I've used this box for one year now. The hardware is reliable and works well with my condenser mics that need phantom power. I've left it "on" for most of this year and the lights shine brightly and it still works fine.

The problem, as others have mentioned, is the ASIO driver. It hasn't been updated in years and it is simply not a well-written driver compared to what else is available. It hangs often, and absolutely if you let the computer enter sleep mode. If you route other software through the box (media players, etc.) then try to start your editing software (in my case, Ableton Live 9), the driver will fail in the editor with a message that the bit rate is not supported. To get it to work again, you have to reroute default output away from the box, then try to get the editor to open the ASIO again. Sometimes you'll have to reboot the box and/or the computer. I've learned the dance and it's more of an annoyance, but it took me days to figure out the path of least resistance to getting the box working again.

When you get it figured out, it produces fine recordings for amateur standards (given the 48K, not 96K, limit when you go bi-directional, which you will always do when you're, say, singing to a music track in your editor).

I've got the headphone volume all the way up and my Bose Quiet Comfort headphones are weak. I wish it had more gain on the headphone output.

I bought this as a bundled deal which resulted in a very nice price. If I had to pay more for it, I would have been even more critical. For the price I paid, I can live with a little hassle... still, I'm here looking for alternatives so if your time is real money, go for less hassle. I'm a (very) amateur singer so this is just entertainment for me.

I *have* recommended it to a friend, so I'll say "yes" to that, but it was because he is as "cost-conscious" as me and I was going to show him the workarounds. If you are pretty computer savvy you'll figure it out and save money.

I'll post a picture of my studio but unfortunately the one hidden thing is the Fast Track Pro box (behind a monitor). However, it is certainly sufficient for an amateur studio like this and is THE I/O box serving everything here. I've set the levels and really don't have to mess with it daily.

FYI, note the MIDI I/O is the old school style, and I still have equipment that uses that. If you've got USB MIDI devices this isn't for you.

Misleading- Beware!

By Carl Jurew

from Colorado

See all my reviews

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

M-Audio needs to be more up-front with providing specs to a prospective buyer. My advice: Before you buy ANYTHING....download the PDF manual first and get the big picture instead of relying on only the marketing hype!
I bought the Fast Track Pro thinking (based on the specs provided) that I could record one track while listening to the other tracks all at 24 bit and 96k. WRONG! Bi-directional transfer causes the unit to default to 16 bit, 48k. In addition, I bought self powered digital studio monitors so I could benefit from digital signal. The problem arose when I realized that my sub-woofer (which uses XLR cabling) gets muted when you select S/PDIF out. HOW STUPID! Why mute the balanced analog outputs when digital out is selected? I had to cut the connectors off and install 1/4 in. TS. I wasted extra money on good quality XLR cables for NOTHING! Thanks, M-Audio!

Good unit, Bad drivers

By Mike123shafer

from Maryland

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

The Bottom line is this is a good piece of hardware, but software sucks. The main issue is VIRTUAL ASIO drivers. This unit will only channel through one Virtual ASIO driver (ASIO4ALL interferes with it), and anything else that uses ASIO (web cams, Winamp, online video), upon opening your recording software get ready for all the ASIO problems you'll encounter. Restarting your computer even Reloading the software is common with this product. Check out E-MU, they use a application called "DSP" so you'll have Virtual ASIO channels.

Customer tech support from this company is very bad, there's no phone number to call, they might answer and an e-mail, but that's about it. I've just recently gotten a new tower and I'm having bad latency problems and there's no one to go to for help. I'm never buying anything from Avid again !!!

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

I've used it flawlessly with Adobe Audition and Pro Tools on XP as well as Logic on my Mac without any problems. Download the latest drivers and you shouldn't have any problems. The recording quality is great for the price and the features are good. I don't usually use ProTools but I like having that as an option in case I ever need it for some reason. If mine was ever lost or stolen I would buy another one without hesitation. It's perfect for my needs as a recording hobbyist.

best value on the market

By adamcno

from bay area, ca

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

1. This is the only USB interface in it's price range to offer 1/4", RCA, XLR, and MIDI inputs.2. The compact interface is fairly simple to figure out - the knobs are clearly labeled and having the combo 1/4" XLR jacks on the front is extremely handy for plugging and unplugging different instruments and inputs.3. I'm amazed at the sound quality of my recordings - I'm using an M-Audio condenser mic with the phantom power supplied by the FastTrack Pro and it sounds top notch.4. Yes, it may take a bit of know-how to get the unit set up properly with your computer and recording software. Once you do, however, recording is quick and painless. I've recorded vocals, guitar (thru mic and direct audio), and drums (thru direct audio and midi) and it all sounds great.

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

This is my first audio interface. I think its okay. My sounds are clean and compressed and sound good as long as i dont use distortion from my amp. I dont know if there are any better for the price but this beats lexicons and tascams and usb mixers. I think you could be happy with this. It does all its supposed to do very well and everyone says at all the local music shops that its the best quality. so go for it!

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

I just received the fast track pro and I love it! It is very simple to set up, and for those who say it doesnt work for Vista 64 bit, It does! It works perfectly and was easy to set up. I dont understand how people can have a hard time plugging it into their computer and just downloading the drivers for their OS. Best bang for your buck. If you have firewire I would say otherwise.

Perfect Piece of Junk

By John1776

from East of Eden

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

Great features but they all perform below subpar- that is, slightly above File 13 and right below useless. It looks sophisticated in the studio like faux electronics in furniture stores. I am an engineer and needed simplicity. What I got was a week long latency migrane. I kid you not- five days. The latency problem is nothing short of your worst DAW recording nightmare. Been on the phone with every hardware and software vendor-- even tried custom ASIO drivers- nothing worked. The only way around the latency is installing 2009 M-Audio FT Pro drivers. Now I get absolute great latency values at a killer 25 ms minimum! I need 7 ms maximum on the input and output buffers. Like G. H Bush said, "Not gonna do it." The problem is you can get rid of the pops and cracks but you cannot reduce the latecy value enough to rid yourself of the delay in your DAW when your kit, bass, guitar, violin, etc. registers on the VU's in your host software. Ran it through an XPS Studio, Sony Vaio, Acer Ferrari and it bombed out on all three.I run Ableton Suite, Battery and Traktor plus all vintage gear except for the M-Audio control surfaces. The Neutrik ins are cheap, gain is terrible but the PAD works great. Spend your bucks on a dedicated *high-speed 2.0 USB* interface...that's the avenue to take when you're limited to USB. And make sure it's USB *2.0.* I lay you odds the M Audio FT Pro is USB v1.1. Here's the good news; It works absolutely fantastic as an external sound card. Just don't think you can run anything *into* it with success.So save your pennies, do your homework and check into Alesis, Mackie, and TC Electronics USB interfaces.

Beware XP SP3 and Vista Sp1 Users

By Keith Garrett

from Santa Cruz, CA

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

It's totally unfortunate that M-audio has some of the worst customer support and tech support of any audio company out there otherwise this little box would be exactly what I need. If you are on Vista or have SP3 for XP beware.. The driver is badly optimized and I have constant latency issues with it. My computer is a dual core 1.73ghz, 4 gb ram laptop and with this particular interface I can barely run 8 channels of audio in ableton with two effects per channel (simple things like compressors) without crackling. Furthermore, you can't have two programs open that process sound (for example a media player and Ableton) or you will get errors about how the sample rate is not supported by the sound card... If you don't believe me check out the 9 page thread on the m-audio forum that has been open since September of last year (no actual solution has been developed by m-audio). Again this little box is exactly what I want and it's unfortunate that their drivers are so awful but as soon as I find a new interface this will be getting shipped back...

M-audio products don't last

By scarecrow hands

from Arlington, TX

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

This is the second M-audio interface I have owned. The first was the one that was a step below this. It barely worked out of box, behaving erratically and only working intermittently. The after a short period of time it just stopped working all together. Then I bought this thinking that I was getting more since I was paying more. It worked great at first. the first month or so I did a ton with it and I thought I had made a great choice. Then I was playing in a band and not recording at home as much so I didn't turn the device on for about a month. then I came back to it and now my Mac won't recognize the device is there. I have spent about two hours on the phone with tech support with no luck. Then that same day it started working again long enough for me to get some work done. I thought hey it fixed itself and maybe just maybe there was a conflict I wasn't able to come across. Then the next day I turned it on and the computer won't see it again. So I try other USB ports, other computers. Nothing!!! So now I have to send it away for repair. I am not happy.On top of it all M-Audio's tech support is long distance to call with hour long hold times. This is horrible!

Very good, but still has room for improvement

By ShredWithKitty

from Miami FL

See all my reviews

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

I've owned this for about 7 months, I've been using mainly to records electric guitars, either line or with Mic. I'm using Logic as my DAW. The goods:The sound is good. The latency is low as long as you use a small buffer and little-to-no plugins during recording. And it's very easy to setup.The bads/could-be-betters:-The preamps lack gain!! only 40dB!! if you're planning on recording mic'd guitar amps without setting the amp at extreme volume, you'll lack gain. -It doesn't support Sleep Mode in Mac, if you do sleep, the sound card will crash and you need to restart it. Not a big deal, but annoying...-It advertises it's Max sample rate at 96 KHz, but that's using only outputs OR inputs, not both. You'll work at 48. But let's be honest; if you spend only $200 in a sound card, then nobody will notice the difference between 48 and 96 KHz...Still it's very cheap and very useful, and a good value, as it does its job very well. If you desperately need to make decent recordings without using funky cell phone or laptop mics, this is it!!

You have lost a customer. I will never buy anything with M-Audio written on it ever again after this. now looking to replace this horrible paper wait with the Behringer FCA1616 Firepower looks way better and is by a different brand. I just pray they are not like M-Audio with there false advertisement on quality vocals and such. I am so disappointed and upset.

This is a great little box for the home studio. Finally decided to get rid of my Behringer (surprisingly got out of it what I put into it shy of five bills) I never used it. I love the fact the fast track is USB powered because AC power without a furman is so obnoxious. The USB power allows the sound to be clear no matter what's running through your electrical system! Also, the phantom power and switcheable line/instrument is very nice. It comes with everything for the home project. MIDI, SPDIF, two mic or instrument plugins and outputs. I love it and plan to keep it.

Get What You Pay For

By Uncle Ruckel

from Interior of BC

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

I have been recording to a PC using a SB Audigy platnium interface since 2002. The MIDI never seem to work very well so I stuck with using my 1987 Atari Mega 2 to create and edit then would import the MIDI file to PC. I bought the Fast Track as a step up to something better. Hmmm.I use my laptop for playing my backing tracks ( drums and Bass) and had issues with the cheezy headphone jsck. First gig using the fast track it stopped working and I had to switch back to on-board. It has done this a couple of time so I have stopped using it. I tried to record a concert using condensors mikes and the phantom power did not work. You have to use a mixer with it. Those inputs are $10 preamps I'm sure. Getting back to the MIDI. it works but with stuck notes from my Korg M1. I could not get the Digital in -out to work with my Yamaha OV1. I found it will not crash as often if you power it with a wall wart. Not a professiol tool at all.

need to have computer literacy to set up. You may have to redownload windows XP SP 3 a number of times before you get it right. Also, make sure the unit is connected when you install the drivers. Reading the instructions goes a long way.... I am very happy with it for recording guitar, electronic drums, keys, and bass. I use it with AcidPro and it fixes the latency issue. Do not hesitate to buy it for high quality home recording.

Great Deal!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

I've owned the fast track pro for about 5 months now. I'm very pleased with the money/quality ratio. I would agree with some of the other reviews that the preamp gain leaves a little something to be desired, but come on, it's only $200. A great deal!I cannot stress enough. Alway, always look into compatibility issues before purchasing. I went to the actual manufacturer's site to make sure that this would work. I'm runnning Win XP Media Center on a Dell. It works just fine. Also make sure to select the ASIO driver in the preferences of the recording program that is being used. Any other driver selection will create latency issues. The other problem is, when recording, the program depends on the actual computer's processor, so many tracks with effects at once isn't recommended.

Comments about M-Audio Fast Track Pro Mobile USB Audio/MIDI Interface:

This was my first audio recording interface. I have used it with a macbook and that was nothing but driver problems all the time. I had to reinstall the software more than 10 times and everytime my macbook went to the screen saver or sleep mode, the driver would crash forcing me to reboot if I wanted to continue my work.Also, I think this product is really pricey for an USB 1.1 Audio Interface. There are plenty of more performance-oriented audio interfaces out there, and I would suggest the buyer to go for an USB 2.0 or FireWire device.
