iTrack Solo provides the best solution for recording your instruments and vocals using an iPad. Featuring a Focusrite microphone preamp and an input to record directly from electric guitars, iTrack Solo is the perfect companion for any singer-songwriter wanting to take their demos to the next level. Using the very best in digital audio technology, iTrack Solo will capture your sound with pristine quality. Simply plug in and press record. It couldn’t be simpler.

Since 1985, Focusrite has been a leading manufacturer in the professional audio field. Focusrite mic pres have played a key part in the recording of hundreds of hit records and they’re a top choice of leading artists, recording studios and engineers around the world. This experience has been used to great effect when designing the input section of iTrack Solo, which features a clean, low-noise, low-distortion preamp. iTrack Solo also provides phantom power for professional condenser microphones.

With a guitar input alongside the microphone input, you are free to record both vocals and your instrument simultaneously to separate tracks in your software*. You could even use both a microphone on your guitar and the guitar input at the same time to get a different sound.

Unique halo signal indicators, also found on Scarlett 2i2, let you know that you’ve got a good volume for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the signal returns to a healthy level, at which point the halo will turn green again.

A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for the volume of your speakers and headphones, whilst a high-quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs. This allows you to hear the incoming signal with no latency, which can be distracting and affect your performance.

On the rear panel you will find phono outputs allowing you to connect iTrack Solo to a pair of powered speakers, or to your home Hi-Fi system. The speaker volume can then be controlled using the large dial on the front of iTrack Solo meaning everything you need is within reach.

iTrack Solo will also work with Mac and PC allowing you to record with your desktop or laptop. There is an included version of Ableton Live Lite and Focusrite’s Scarlett Plug-In Suite, which provides essential effects for recording – Reverb, Compression, Gate and EQ.

*Please note that at current, GarageBand for iOS will record two simultaneous inputs to a single stereo track, which cannot be separated using iPad. The two separate signals can be separated by transferring your session to a Mac. Other apps are available which allow recording to two separate tracks simultaneously.

On the third trip to the store, this was returned


from Lincoln, NE

There were absolutely no instructions in the packaging, or on the company website with directions on using this with an ipad. Also required an additional $32 adaptor to connect to the new ipad.

No Halo


from Katy, Texas

I hooked this up to an iPad Mini using a converter cable and the sound interface connects great to GarageBand, however, the advertised halo feature does not work on this arrangement. Focusrite needs to mention this to prospective clients.

Excellent Audio Interface For iOS Devices


from Los Angeles, CA

I've been using this device for about 4 months. I love the quality of the audio -- I record 24 bit audio directly to my iPad, something I've wanted to do for a while. I have had no problems with the phantom power driving my AKG C 414 microphone, and the instrument input works beautifully with the old high impedance instruments I have tried. I also rely on the direct monitor switch rather than the switch in my DAW software. The halo indicators are a great way to quickly identify a too-hot signal. I tend to keep it in one place, but don't see any reason why one couldn't use it comfortably in a variety of mobile situations. Note that you need to power this thing via its USB port, and it will NOT charge your iOS device. Not a problem for me, and I think the manufacturer makes that very clear. Positives: For what it is -- a high quality two channel ADC with phantom power targeted at the iOS platform at a very reasonable price point -- I do not believe it can be beat. 5 stars just for this. Negatives: 1. The proprietary cord which connects the interface to an iOS device is very short and rigid. The manufacturer was forced into this length by Apple's standards -- understandable. But what's not understandable is why it's not reversible. It is a rigid, right-angled connector. One should be able to connect the iOS device from either side. As it is, one can only connect it from the right. 2. The headphone out is not nearly powerful enough to drive high impedance headphones, like standard AKG K240's, not even close. A headphone amp is required in order to use this product with such headphones. I use Schiit's Magni amp.
