Portable 24-bit/96 FireWire audio interface.

Bus-powered, compact and providing the ultimate in connectivity, the Link.FireWire 4x6 Audio Interface is an ultra-portable and superb-sounding recording solution for musicians, composers, and producers.

Superior Sound Quality

For the Link.FireWire 4x6, Tapco started with two of the best mic preamps available in any audio interface at this price range. These Mackie-designed preamps will capture the subtle nuances of any sound you throw at them. Any mic, line, or instrument input is connected via 2 Neutrik XLR/TRS combo connectors. This exceptional sound is preserved all the way to your computer thanks to modern 24-bit/96kHz digital audio converters. These same converters supply superb quality sound to both your headphones and S Series Active Studio Monitors.

4x6 I/O Explained
Along with the 2 Mackie-designed preamps, the Link.FireWire 4x6 provides stereo coaxial S/PDIF inputs and can stream 6 channels of audio from your DAW and route it through the Link.FireWire's monitor outputs ” great for sending a cue mix to musicians for tracking ” hence the 4x6 in the name. In normal operation, the stereo outputs of the Link.FireWire 4x6 mirror the inputs, which makes it a 2x2 analog interface; 4x2 if you combine analog and S/PDIF digital inputs; and 4x6 when you use the 6-channel streaming audio feature from your DAW.

Small . . . But Mighty

All that great sound potential is cleverly packed into a compact case less than 2" high and 8" long. Link.FireWire 4x6 audio interface tucks comfortably alongside your laptop when you're on the go, and connects with a single FireWire cable when you're ready to get busy. It's bus powered, meaning it draws its juice from your computer for no-sacrifice recording and mixing, no matter where you end up. And with a unique swivel-foot design, you can stand Tapco's Link.FireWire 4x6 on its side in tighter workspaces, then stow it when it's time to go.

Fully Functional Good Looks
The Link.FireWire interface sounds and looks great, and it's designed for complete roadworthiness and functionality. Its soft rubber side-cheeks protect it from accidental impact and keep it from sliding. Silver side rails act like tiny roll bars to protect its precious knobs from being sheared off while in transit. The Tapco Link.FireWire 4x6 is hard working, smart, and sexy.

Simple, Powerful, Tracktion

The Link.FireWire interface includes Mackie's Tracktion Music Production Software; the easiest program out there to get you started using your computer to record. And once you've mastered the basics, there's plenty of room to grow with Tracktion's truly professional feature set. It even comes bundled with a great assortment of plug-in effects, including Mackie's Dynamics Suite to help you keep the mix tight, plus Mackie's Final Mix CD mastering plug-in for when you're ready to share your music with the world.
