The iConnectivity iConnect Audio 4+ Audio and MIDI Interface is the complete unit for your home studio setup, enabling you to bridge the gap between your instruments and recording device seamlessly. Whether you use a computer or an iOS device, you are guaranteed high-res audio and MIDI data transmission via the USB, 5-pin MIDI, mic, and instrument, speaker, and headphone ports. Wherever you are, you can rely on the iConnect Audio 4+ to perform immaculately.
As noted, the iConnect Audio 4+ is equipped with a range of inputs and outputs that cater to a wide range of instruments, making it perfect for those who incorporate a wide range of equipment in their home set-up - and thanks to its portable dimension and lightweight design, it is perfect for taking on the move. At your disposal are four XLR / 1/4" TRS combo analog inputs with premium microphone preamplifiers that offer 48v phantom power. There are two balanced and unbalanced mic and line inputs. Recording your electric guitar or bass is as simple as plugging directly into an input; both dynamic and condenser microphones are catered to, which is perfect for recording vocals and acoustic instruments. High-resolution audio is transmitted up to 24-bit/96kHz Analogue to Digital/Digital to Analogue conversion.
Along the rear panel there are dual USB ports for connecting to multiple devices simultaneously, which allows you to use two computers (MAC/PC/iOS) at the same time. The Host USB port allows you to connect up to 8 MIDI peripherals (with Class-compliant devices connected using a powered USB hub), allowing you to connect multiple synths, an electronic drum kits, and USB controllers. A very useful feature of the USB ports is that Port 1 will charge an iOS device, whilst Port 2 may keep an iOS device charged, depending on the type of device. Next to the USB ports are the 5-pin DIN MIDI In and Out ports for connecting your legacy MIDI equipment.
The stereo headphone output allows you to directly monitor your instrument signals whilst simultaneously capturing information. Alongside the headphone jack are four unbalanced line outputs, which allows you to connect two pairs of studio monitors.
The front panel touch screen display gives you quick access to a wide range of routing options. Along with the control knob, you can attenuate the level or trim levels to prevent clipping or distortion. Simply by double-clicking the level control allows you to quickly switch between input and output port controls. Along the front panel single outputs, or groups can be controlled with ease.
The team at iConnectivity has included their outstanding iConfig software interface (compatible with Windows, Mac, and iOS), which enables you to perform advanced MIDI routing, as well as operating audio levels using your PC/Mac/iPad etc. You have the ability to save and open complete routing arrangements, and processing Snapshot files that allow you to turn a highly sophisticated system into a simplistic control setup. iConfig allows you to name inputs, route MIDI with ease, and process MIDI to meet your demands.
