IK Multimedia proudly announces AXE I / O SOLO, a new entry in its range of AXE I / Or high-end guitar interfaces with advanced tone-shaping features.
Developed for guitar players who want to record the best possible sound on a budget or on the go, AXE I / O SOLO is a compact 2-in / 3-out USB audio interface that features IK's high-end PURE microphone preamp; an instrument input with proprietary tone-shaping options; an exclusive Amp Out to incorporate real gear into a recording setup; and 24-bit, 192 kHz converters with a wide dynamic range, for pristine recordings in all musical genres.
AXE I / O SOLO can also act as a controller for use with IK's included AmpliTuber or other favourite guitar-friendly software, offering a complete, affordable solution for players who want the best possible tone for their tracks.
AXE I / O SOLO offers IK's high-definition, Class A PURE mic preamp, designed for transparent and clean recording. An extended, flat frequency response captures the full tonal range of voices and instruments without colouring the sound. A best-in-class dynamic range ensures ultra-quiet recordings.
Proprietary tone-shaping options let users dial in the perfect settings for their instruments or coax a wider range of tones from a single instrument:
First, an active & passive pickup selector adapts instantly to any instrument. The active channel bypasses unneeded gain stages, ensuring the signal is always as direct and uncoloured as possible.
Next, AXE I / O SOLO offers both a PURE circuit for pristine, transparent sound and a JFET circuit for adding warmth and harmonics, all within a single device.
Finally, IK's proprietary Z-Toner impedance-adapting circuit lets users adjust the input impedance to interact with their guitar's pickups: at the maximum impedance, sounds are tighter, sharper and more precise, and at lower impedances the sound becomes thicker and bolder.
These controls give guitars even more sonic character - with just a few minutes' experimentation, users can dial in a sound that perfectly fits the mix.
AXE I / O SOLO offers a streamlined re-amplification setup in a single box. A front panel Amp Out lets guitar and bass players incorporate real amplifiers and stompboxes without the need for an external conversion box. This low-noise out also eliminates ground loops, to keep even the highest-gain re-amplification as quiet as possible.
AXE I / O SOLO preserves the best-in-class dynamic range, ultra-low self noise and wide, extended frequency response of the original AXE I / O, ensuring premium sound quality for recording both instruments and vocals.
1 / 4" balanced outputs and a headphones out provide comprehensive connections, and a "blend" knob mixes direct and processed signal for zero-latency monitoring. In addition, AXE I / O SOLO also features two dedicated inputs for controller pedals and switches, plus MIDI In / Out, offering a range of options for real-time control over amp modelling plug-ins or recording software.
For seamless, out-of-the-box recording and processing, AXE I / O SOLO comes bundled with AmpliTube 4 Deluxe, IK's powerful guitar and bass tone studio for Mac / PC / iPhone / iPad, as well as a suite of T-RackS mixing & mastering plug-ins and Ableton Live 10 Lite recording software.
