Designed for musicians, producers, and songwriters in pursuit of quality recordings and fresh sounds on a scaled-down budget, the M-Audio M-Track Solo desktop 2×2 USB audio interface provides simultaneous 2-channel recording, easy operability, and a helpful software bundle of DAWs, virtual instruments, and plug-ins.

With its XLR-1/4″ combo mic/line input and dedicated front-panel 1/4″ line/instrument input, the M-Track Solo can simultaneously accommodate a dynamic or condenser mic and an electric guitar/bass while offering separate meters and gain controls for both inputs. Since the interface has two unbalanced RCA monitor outputs and a 3.5mm headphone output with a shared level control, you can connect active speakers and a set of headphones and adjust their volumes simultaneously. The built-in direct monitor function lets you hear the zero-latency live input signal in mono, or monitor the USB return signal from your computer, so you can smoothly transition from tracking, to overdubbing, to mixing.

Crystal Clear Audio in a Compact Design

The M-Track Solo delivers 48 kHz audio resolution in a compact and easy-to-use format that is ideal for creating music on any Mac/Windows computer or iOS mobile device. This versatile interface works great for recording any type of sound source; it features a single Combo Crystal Preamp with phantom power and a switchable line/instrument input, making it compatible with any guitar or microphone. Plus, with M-Track Solo’s two-channel recording, you can use both line inputs simultaneously to capture digital pianos, drum machines, or any other stereo 1/4″ device.

Direct Monitoring and Headphone Connection

M-Track Solo offers zero-latency monitoring of the input signal through both the main RCA outputs and the 3.5mm headphone output. The USB/Direct switch adjusts the balance between the direct inputs and the playback from your computer software. This makes it easy to record new parts or add parts to an existing composition.

Crystal Preamps and Clear A/D Converters

M-Audio’s engineers designed their Crystal preamps to provide you with a transparent low-noise preamp, for optimal sound from your microphones, and captures your performance exactly the way you intended. The M-Track Solo incorporates pristine A/D converters for 24-bit / 48 kHz resolution digital audio with a dynamic range that let you capture every nuance and subtlety of the performance.

Bus Powered

M-track Solo is completely powered by USB, which makes it portable and perfect for anyone. Throw it into your bag, grab a laptop, and create your next podcast, song, or mix, anywhere you want. The interface is class-compliant for Macs and utilizes a downloadable driver for Windows.
The power available from an iOS device is not sufficient to power M-Track Solo. Use an Apple Camera Connection Kit, a USB breakout cable, and a USB power adapter (all available separately) to properly connect and power the M-Track Solo with an iPhone or iPad.

Creative Software Suite

To help you start recording as soon as possible, the M-Track Solo comes complete with a software package—two DAWs, 20 effect plug-ins, a virtual instrument, and more.

  • Pro Tools | First M-Audio Edition and MPC Beats: Two DAWs that make it easy and fun to create professional-sounding podcasts and music or competitive beat productions on any Mac or Windows computer
  • Eleven Lite: Guitar amp simulator with modern and vintage amps and cabs
  • AVID Effects Collection: 20 effects including compression, delay, reverb, and more
  • AIR Music XPand!2: A multitimbral synthesizer plug-in for creating synths, strings, percussion, organ, piano sounds, and more with ease
