Overview

This latest generation of iTrack Solo is the easiest way to record instruments and vocals on your Lightning-compatible iPad. Simply plug into the legendary Focusrite preamp and dedicated instrument input to start capturing your sound in pristine quality, using the very best in digital audio technology. Compact, lightweight and housed in rugged aluminium case, iTrack Solo is the perfect companion for any singer-songwriter who wants to make exceptional demos on iPad, Mac or PC.

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.

    Comments about Focusrite iTrack Solo (Lightning):

    This device is extremely easy. I just plug it in and it works instantly with Logic and Ableton Live. I use this for tracking on the road, and even during our set. Fantastic product. I am very very happy! Best money I've spent on recording gear in awhile.

    Not a stand alone device for H&K TM18 red box

    By Aaron

    Comments about Focusrite iTrack Solo (Lightning):

    I'm very new to this type of devices so some of you may already know most of this. For those new to this I may help you a little, although it is kind of specific to the H&K TM18 head. The reason for my purchase was solely to be able to listen to my H&K TM18 at night with headphones. For that it does work. The H&K has the red box built in and an XLR output. I just plug the XLR to the device (guitar input), put the power soak on "no speaker" and I'm up and running with my headphones being the only output, well sort of. YOU MUST have the ipad (or computer) connected to the device for it to work in any way, despite the fact the device has its own power supply. If you do not have an ipad or computer to use it will not work. I also discovered that despite the fact the H&K uses an XLR output, you cannot use the mic (XLR) input on the device. The sound is not right, its low and bad, I'm sure most folks already know this, I didn't. I needed to get the XLR to 1/4 and plug into the guitar input for it to sound decent. That being said it is a lot of fun. You can use garage band, your music collection or I guess about anything and play along. There is a tape app for the ipad that allows you to record yourself. I cannot find any other apps for the ipad although I guess there are apps you can use on the computer in addition to the tape app. I have not used any other features but may start to look into that later.
