The Impact Twin from tc electronic is a state of the art audio interface featuring two microphone preamps that utilize the company's Impact III technology. Three stages of processing include a high quality and very flexible microphone preamp, superior 24-bit/192 kHz high definition conversion, plus a set of recording Channel Tools that lets you shape and optimize your sound.

The microphone preamp accepts the finest vintage tube microphones, the most demanding low-budget condensers, or even a handheld dynamic. And having two preamps provides maximum flexibility, whether recording an instrument, line source, or a microphone with or without phantom power.

The Impact Twin's converters let you select your conversion rate - all the way from 44.1 kHz, right up to high definition 192 kHz for the ultimate in pristine audio capture, while maintaining the essential transients of the source. The included Channel Tools go even further to optimize your sound, with an onboard EQ, compressor and de-esser, that quickly and simply tame and enhance those signals, no matter what you're recording.
