A premium audio interface made for guitarists!
The AXE I/O is the highest quality 2 IN/5 OUT designed for guitarists.
192kHz compatible USB audio interface & controller. Not only does it bring out the original tone of the guitar to the maximum, but it also has various functions to make the recording of the guitar smoother.
○ Product overview and main features of AXE I/O
The AXE I/O is equipped with many guitar-specific functions even at the input stage alone.
2 mode switches, PURE and JFET, are provided for the main input, and you can switch between a transparent sound without seasoning and a warm sound by adding overtones. In addition, PASSIVE mode for passive pickup and ACTIVE mode for active pickup are available. In ACTIVE mode, unnecessary circuits are bypassed to bring out the original tone of the guitar or pickup. In addition, the patent-pending Z-Tone allows you to adjust the input impedance to match the tone of the connected guitar or pickup. Optimal sound can be obtained that avoids sound thinning and muffled sound due to impedance mismatch.
I/O is bundled with software and plug-ins worth more than 1,000 euro, so you can enjoy recording, mixing, and mastering right away.
AmpliTube 4 Deluxe is a guitar with over 140 gear models/Bass effects and amp modeling software that includes guitar and bass amps, cabinets, stomp effects, and mics that resemble ultra-realistic analog behaviour. AXE for preset selection and value adjustment
You can also use the knobs on the front panel of the I/O, or connect an external pedal/footswitch to operate the pedals and switches on the AmpliTube. Also, for mix software, T-RackS
10 popular processors, carefully selected from 5, are also bundled. From vintage outboard-modeled compressors and limiters to the popular integrated processor ONE, you can complete world-class mixes and masters. In addition, the free version of Ableton
Lite is bundled, so you have all the music production software you need to compose and record audio at once.
