4channel audio and MIDI USB interface.

Add a professional edge to your project studio with the M-Track Quad from M-Audio. Four flexible inputs accommodate any source, from phantom-powered microphones to your favorite guitar. Plus, each input comes equipped with its own insert jack for integrating your favorite effects. M-Track Quad provides zero-latency monitoring of the input signal for carefree recording. Four outputs deliver versatile playback options. The front panel also offers a headphone output with dedicated level control. In addition to outstanding audio performance, M-Track Quad also features MIDI in and out jacks. M-Track Quad connects to your computer via USB and also acts as a powered hub with three additional USB ports. Completing this powerful package is Ignite by AIR. Ignite delivers a comprehensive path for transforming the ideas in your head into a finished piece of music.

On the Four Front
M-Track Quad is equipped with four inputs that provide the best results with any type of audio source. Each offers an XLR input and a balanced 1/4" input. The XLR input is designed to work with microphones or other Lo-Z sources. The phantom power switch delivers 48V to the XLR inputs for use with professional condenser microphones. The 1/4" input can be set to receive a line level signal, or switched to allow an electric guitar or bass to be plugged directly into the M-Track Quad. Individual gain knobs ensure the proper input level.

Each input channel is also equipped with an insert jack, a professional addition not often found in this class of interface. The insert jack allows studio-grade effects to be used with any input source as you record.

Improved Monitoring for Better Recordings
M-Track Quad offers ultra-low latency monitoring of the input signal—either through the speakers or via headphones. The monitor mix knob adjusts the balance between the direct inputs and the playback from your computer software. In addition, the input signal(s) can be monitored in stereo or mono using the convenient Stereo/Mono switch. This makes it easy to record new parts or add parts to an existing composition. The Headphone output offers its own level control.

MIDI Matters
In addition to the two audio channels, M-Track Quad also supports 16 channels of MIDI data and timing information. The MIDI In and MIDI out jacks are compatible with all MIDI equipment.

USB Central
M-Track Quad uses a single USB cable to create a two-way audio and MIDI connection with your computer. Best of all, the M-Track Quad also serves as a powered USB Hub. Connect your USB controller keyboard, pad controller, and other USB devices directly to your M-Track Quad for a convenient, single cable computer connection.

Ignite provides a refreshingly original and musician-centric way to quickly capture, combine, and arrange your musical ideas. The intuitive graphic interface encourages you to experiment and explore new directions. Smart MIDI Chord and Phrase Players empower your ideas and bring them to life through over 275 superior instrument sounds created by AIR Music Technology. When you’re ready to collaborate with other musicians or take your ideas to the next level, you can share them through SoundCloud, or export your WAV and MIDI files and import them into any DAW software. Best of all, Ignite offers seamless integration with your M-Audio keyboard controller, with no set-up chores to perform.

  • Pricey Brick

    As reviewed by Mark on 6/15/2015

    I have had mine for a while and since day one it suffers from crackling and distortion in the recording and playback. I thought it was user error so I opted to scour the forums instead of return it (did not get it from Sweetwater). Apparently, MANY people have this problem. Attempted solutions range from decreasing buffer size to driver updates to changing USB ports and cables. I tried all of them to no avail. The user error was that I did not return it as soon as the fault was noticed, that I relied on the quality of M-Audio and decided to learn how to fix it myself. This has turned out to be an expensive error. I am NOT impressed. The M-Track Quad is a worthless piece of gear to me, a pricey brick.

  • Not supported by 3.16.5 linux kernel

    As reviewed by Jason on 11/3/2014

    Kernel recognizes it as appears from output of `lsusb` but `aplay -l` `arecord -l` `alsamixer -c #` `cat /proc/asound/cards` and other data do not show the device is functional as an audio interface.

  • Would love to use it

    As reviewed by CLIFF SEAMAN on 4/22/2014

    This option looks great on paper. Pro Tools will not recognize it. So, for now it's just collecting dust until proper drivers are developed. Thanks.
