Cumberland, R.I. (Dec. 22, 2011) – Alesis, the world’s leading manufacturer of instruments and tools for today's musician, announces that the iO4 USB audio interface for Mac, PC, and iOS* devices, is now shipping to musical instrument and pro audio retailers.
The iO4 is a compact audio-recording interface for home and mobile recording setups. This four-channel USB device for Mac, PC and iOS systems enables users to record and monitor up to eight channels of audio (four in, four out) at 16-bit resolution, or four channels (two in, two out) at 24-bit. The iO4 is compact enough to comfortably fit into laptop bag or backpack, yet contains high-quality components and circuitry suitable for the studio.
The iO4 has four input channels, each with an XLR microphone input, a 1/4-inch TRS insert for external effects units, and a 1/4-inch TS jack that works with line-level sources and can accommodate direct connection of guitars. Discrete-design preamplifiers and 48-volt phantom power are provided on each channel, allowing musicians to connect nearly any microphone or audio source to their computer. High-quality analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters ensure that every detail of each session is captured and played back faithfully.
