The Focusrite iTrack Studio -announced today- might well be all you need for your mobile recording rig. Here at Edinburgh’s Red Dog Towers, we have the lowdown…
The iTrack Studio starts with the iTrack Solo, which puts a renowned Focusrite mic-pre in your studio, along with an instrument input to get your guitar recorded simultaneously. With a pair of RCA outputs to match the two inputs, as well as a headphone jack, you can get your studio monitors plugged in, but easily keep the headphones ready for when you’re recording.
Speaking of headphones, the iTrack Studio ships with the same clear, unflattering and accurate HP60 headphones that you find in the Scarlett Studio, so you can get listening straightaway.
But to what will you listen? Fortunately, in addition to its instrument input, the iTrack Studio package also includes the CM25 large-diaphragm condenser microphone (and an XLR cable) so you can get recording straight out of the box. Huzzah!
Much like the Scarlett Studio, the iTrack Studio is the perfect one-stop-box for getting into recording, or simply adding an additional mobile recording rig to complement your home studio; just add a computer or iPad and you’re away!
If you are using the iTrack with your iPad, you will no doubt be pleased to hear that Focusrite will be releasing the recording app Tape for free on the app store to give you the software to go along with the hardware. The iTrack Studio bundle also includes a version of Ableton Live Lite, the Scarlett plugin suite, the Novation Bass Station plugin instrument and sample content from Loopmasters.
The iTrack Studio package will be shipping in September, so stay tuned for more updates!
