IK Multimedia AXE I/O Overview

  • 1Description

The AXE I/O Audio Interface with Advanced Guitar Tone Shaping from IK Multimedia is a professional 2-in/5-out audio interface and controller designed for the recording guitarist. It can be used with Mac or Windows computers and offers best-in-class sound quality, which makes your guitar recordings faster, easier, and better in DAW applications.

The AXE I/O offers triple-topology, fully discrete input circuits with both PURE and JFET input stages. This allows you to go from transparent to tubelike with just a single switch. The Z-Tone impedance-adapting circuit interacts with your guitar's pick-ups to give you a large range of tonal flexibility. When it comes to recording with microphones, AXE I/O offers two combo XLR-1/4" inputs with +48 phantom power.

Furthermore, AXE I/O features a dedicated amp output so you can process your recording with real guitar amps and stomp boxes without the need for external accessories. The low-noise 1/4" output eliminates ground loops and is built on the front panel for easy access. Just record a track with a clean copy of your guitar's signal. Now you can use the amp output to experiment with different amp, stompbox, and microphone settings, or swap out a whole new rig. It is designed to keep high-gain reamplification as quiet as possible.

The AXE I/O integrates with the included AmpliTube 4 Deluxe software to select presets and control values via the front input knob. Set behavior, MIDI channel, MIDI CC#, minimum and maximum values, and more, to dial in the best settings for whatever application you want to control. This lets you connect pedals and switches to get the most from your virtual rig without taking your hands off your guitar. The AXE I/O Audio Interface with Advanced Guitar Tone Shaping is a full-blown analog in-the-box studio, out of the box. An onboard tuner is also included.
