Just connect your iTrack Solo to a power supply and an iPad and you're ready to go! With the very best in digital audio technology encased by a rugged aluminium unibody chassis, iTrack Solo will capture and playback your sound with pristine quality.
Plug straight in
The front panel has an input for a microphone and an input for an instrument (such as an electric guitar, bass guitar or the output of an electro-acoustic guitar). This makes the iTrack Solo perfect for capturing the output of a microphone or using an electric guitar with one of the many guitar amp applications on iPad.
Keep an eye on your audio
Unique signal halos let you know that you've got a good audio level for recording. Green is good and red means that your audio is too loud and that you should turn down the level control.Don't be limited by your dock
Use the iTrack Solo's premium quality audio outputs to take your sound to Hi-Fi, speaker systems or headphones to hear the difference Focusrite can make. At Focusrite, that's all that matters - Sound is Everything.
A supplied cable connects iTrack Solo to the iPad, and it is powered by the included USB cable that delivers the power necessary to run the iTrack's high-specification components. If you are using iTrack Solo with a Mac or PC you don't need to connect it to the mains, your computer will supply enough power via the USB cable.
Made for iPad, also works with Mac and PC
The latest version of iTrack Solo is compatible with all Lightning iPads: iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina Display, iPad (4th generation) and iPad Air.
We also have a version of iTrack Solo that works with iPad (1st gen), iPad (2nd gen) and iPad (3rd gen), via a device link cable.
Both versions work with all core audio apps and are compatible with your PC or Mac too. Make sure you order the right one for your iPad.
High-Quality Mic Preamp
The preamp design on the iTrack Solo is the same design as used in the Scarlett and Saffire audio interface ranges, used and trusted by top musicians and artists around the world.
With a dynamic range of over 105dB, your music will sound amazing going out of the iTrack Solo's professional digital to analogue conversion.
Rugged Metal Unibody Case
The tough aluminium unibody chassis ensures that your iTrack Solo can withstand life on the road, and looks great next to your iPad.
Unique Signal Halos
The gain halos which surround the gain knob for each input provide an easy way to know that the signal you're recording is at the right level. It will show green when the signal is at a good level (above -24dBFS). If it turns to red, you know that the signal is too loud and is, therefore, clipping - if this happens, simply reduce the gain until the halo returns to green.
Direct Monitor Function
Flick the direct monitor switch on the front panel of your iTrack Solo and you will hear what you are recording through your speakers or headphones, without the signal having to go through your iPad or Mac / PC. This avoids the possibility of "latency" (a slight time delay) being introduced by your music app, which can be distracting while recording.
Included software for Mac and PC
Inside the box, you'll find a code which will unlock Ableton Live Lite 8, as well as Focusrite's Scarlett plug-in suite. Compatible with all major DAWs (digital audio workstations) on Mac and PC, the Scarlett plug-in suite provides EQ, Compression, Gate and Reverb - essential tools for polishing your mix.
