The Fast Track Pro from M-Audio was designed to provide a professional, portable audio and MIDI interface for a Windows or Macintosh laptop or desktop computer. Using the USB bus, the interface delivers exceptionally flexible, routing power and versatility, while delivering high-resolution 24-bit audio to and from the computer at sampling rates up to 96kHz.
The unit has two high-quality microphone/instrument preamps accessed via convenient front panel hybrid
XLR/TRS inputs that can accommodate balanced or unbalanced line or instrument levels. Switchable phantom power and individual -20dB pads are included, as are sixteen channels of MIDI in and out.
The rear panel offers insert points for inputs one and two, two balanced TRS analog outputs and four unbalanced RCA connectors, as well as dedicated S/PDIF inputs and outputs, for a total of four inputs and four outputs. The Fast Track Pro is housed in a sleek, rugged, lightweight and highly portable enclosure.
At 16-bit, with maximum sample rate of 48kHz, operates as a 4 In, 4 Out device, with analog AND digital inputs available.
At 24-bit, with maximum sample rate of 48kHz, operates as a 2 In, 4 Out device or a 4 In, 2 Out device, with analog OR digital inputs available.
