Designed for solo performers in search of studio-quality recordings, the M-Audio AIR 192|4 is a straightforward 24-bit / 192 kHz audio interface with a combo XLR-1/4″ mic/line input and a separate 1/4″ Hi-Z instrument input with a specially designed gain and impedance stage for an accurate representation of guitar/bass signals plugged directly into the interface. Each input features dedicated meters and level controls. Two 1/4″ TRS outputs are designed to connect to studio monitors, while the 1/4″ headphone amplifier has an independent level control for private listening sessions.

The integrated Crystal Preamp provides transparent, low-noise operation to help you capture the very best sound from your favorite microphone, exactly the way you intended. The A/D converters feature pristine 24-bit digital audio with a broad dynamic range that captures every nuance and subtlety of the performance. Additionally, the AIR 192|4 utilizes a high-speed USB connection for low round-trip latency (2.59ms) between your computer and your hardware. What’s more a monitor mix control allows you to listen directly to the source inputs for zero-latency performance. The AIR 192|4 is bus powered and includes a USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable, and a USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable. A comprehensive suite of software is also included.
