Hear The Performance Now—Not A Second Later

When recording, you want to focus on capturing that perfect moment, and getting the best performance out of your artist and talent. You don’t want to be bogged down by clicks, pops or latency. The M-Track 8X4M not only features a high-speed USB connection for providing the lowest round trip latency (2.59ms*) between your machine and your hardware, but it also features monitor mix control for listening directly to the source inputs, providing you with zero-latency technology. *Round trip latency is dependent on buffer settings, and computer hardware

Connect Anything And Everything

The M-Track 8X4M features 8 inputs for simultaneously recording up to 8 channels at once to meet all your studio’s recording needs. The (4) dedicated XLR/TRS Mic/Line combo inputs with Crystal Preamps™ and phantom power are perfect for recording a vocalist, or vocalists, mic’ing up an acoustic guitar, vintage guitar or bass amp or the core elements of a drum kit. The (2) ¼” dedicated Instrument inputs use specially designed gain and impedance staging to provide the cleanest signal from your guitar, bass or keyboard, while the (2) ¼” dedicated Line inputs provide a pure uncoloured signal for connecting a tube preamp, keyboard, synth or mixer, and MIDI input and output for connecting any of your boutique synth gear.

Mix, Monitor, And Provide

At the centre of the M-Track 8X4M is a large metal monitor volume knob with inlaid rubberized diamond textured comfort grip for dialling in your studio monitor’s volume, and smoothly referencing your mix at both high and low levels. The monitor and headphone outputs feature a direct mono/stereo switch and direct/USB mix knob. The (2) ¼” headphone outputs have independent volume controls, and source select switches let you create mixes to suit your and your artist’s needs. In addition to the (2) ¼” rear panel monitor outputs, the M-Track 8X4M sports an additional (2) ¼” outputs for connecting outboard gear.
