Axe I/O is a professional 2 in/5 out audio interface - and controller - designed specifically with the needs of the recording guitarist in mind, providing best-in-class sound quality and powerful features aimed squarely at making your recordings faster, easier and better than ever. AXE I/O offers exclusively a triple-topology fully discrete input circuit, with both PURE and a JFET input stages, that can go from transparent to tube-like. Its patent-pending Z-Tone(TM) impedance-adapting circuit interacts with your axe for a massive range of tonal flexibility, never heard before. A dedicated Amp Out lets you process your recording with real guitar amps and stomps without the need for external accessories and with massively reduced noise. AXE I/O seamlessly integrates with the included AmpliTube 4 Deluxe to select presets and control values via the front input knob, and lets you connect pedals and switches to get the most from your virtual rig without ever taking your hands off your axe. It also offers a selection of T-RackS Singles hand-picked to deliver the most useful processors for recording instruments & vocals, and Ableton Live Lite 10 to get you up and recording instantly.
