      Works perfectly on my iPad and MacBook. Clean, quiet preamp. Great price! The short connection cable to the ipad could be annoying to some people.

          I have been using apogee one for a few years and decided to try this lil unit. It is clean and warm and nice that works directly with logic with no extra software required. love the front panel volume control for each channel. Maybe not as much gain as apogee, but i actually like the warmth more

          Comments about Focusrite iTrack Solo Audio Interface for iPad, PC & Mac:

          I just needed an interface to plug in a pretty good quality mic to record voice overs. iTrack solo plugs right into my pc (windows 8.1) via USB. It was plug and play really. Adobe Audition recognized it right away.Keep in mind, in terms of outputs, this interface only has RCA and a 1/4" headphone jack. So if you intend to run monitors out of this baby, you'll have to select accordingly.From time to time my computer doesn't recognize the line in, so I just have to unplug and re-plug the USB (effectively restarting) and then it's all good to go.Good sound quality!

                Comments about Focusrite iTrack Solo Audio Interface for iPad, PC & Mac:

                Got this for my 15 y/o daughter. She plays guitar and writes her own songs and was wanting to record her music to start up a YouTube channel. I spoke with a B&H tech and they gave me several recommendations, some were less expensive but this had guitar and voice both covered in one.
                I paired this with the MXL 770 microphone and got a mic stand and pop filter.
                I set it up and we surprised her with it when she got home and she cried. Then she did a quick recording with it in Garage Band of one of her songs. When we played it back, I cried.
                I couldn't be happier with the ease of use (as the household tech support guy) and with the quality and ease of use.
                You won't be sorry.

                  I am using this to record guitar and vocals in GarageBand. It is compact and lightweight and yet feels like higher end quality. It is ultra simple to use and the circuits are very quiet.
                  Shame about the short cable to connect to the iPad. That makes a great product hard to use. Thus minus one star.
                  Customer Support were helpful when I had some connectivity questions..... But not very prompt via the online query system - 3 days to respond.

                        So far I love it... it's easy to use, plug and play, haven't been able to do a lot yet, but I can tell you I found no latency and the quality is perfect. Can't wait to put more time in it and I definitely want to try recording some double tracked guitar.

                          As the next step to being able to do all your audio production on an i-Pad, the i-Track Solo is the start of the evolution. You get Focusrite pre-amp quality to drive the best microphones into your i-Pad or i-Phone for true recording quality using Garage Band, Twisted Wave, and a host of other iOS recording apps. Its the same audio quality as the very popular Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 with the ability to go iOS.

                          its only "out of the box" deficit is the short iOS cable. Focusrite makes a longer one which you can purchase. Although I see they are offering it free when you register the product.

                                The iTrack Solo Audio Interface is the key to my voice training system for connecting my CD Recorder and condenser microphone through my Desktop PC USB port with +48V Phamtom power. Although, diminutive in size its performance exceeded my expectations. It is extremely easy to use and monitor. Basically, it just sits there and does the job it was designed to do. I
                                experienced some problems with the initial setup through the USB 2.0 port. A call to Focusrite technical support solved the problem by patiently talking me through the set up procedure. Cudos for the their tech staff.

                                  I used this with my Mac. It was easy to use and the quality was great (I used it with Garage Band). I wish it was able to plug in more than one mic, but besides that, this is a great investment for those solo artists who just need one mic and guitar plug in.

                                  I use the Focusrite to input guitar parts into Garage Band on my IPad.
                                  It does exactly what I hoped it would.
                                  It doesn't replace a more advanced multitrack interface, but does a great job
                                  on the IPad.
                                  I'm going to try it on my PC platform.
