iTrack Solo provides the best solution for recording your instruments and vocals using an iPad and is a certified ‘Made for iPad’ device. Featuring a Focusrite microphone preamp and an input to record directly from electric guitars, iTrack Solo is the perfect companion for any singer-songwriter wanting to take their demos to the next level. Using the very best in digital audio technology iTrack Solo will capture your sound with pristine quality. Simply plug in and press record. It couldn’t be simpler. iTrack is also fully compatible with your Mac or PC.

Since 1985, Focusrite has been a leading manufacturer in the professional audio field. Focusrite mic pres have played a key part in the recording of hundreds of hit records and they’re the choice of leading artists, recording studios and engineers around the world. This experience has been used to great effect when designing the input section of iTrack Solo, which features a clean, low-noise, low-distortion preamp, which is also found in our flagship interface Liquid Saffire 56. iTrack Solo also provides phantom power for professional condenser microphones.

With a guitar input alongside the microphone input, you are free to record both vocals and your instrument simultaneously to separate tracks in your software*. You could even use both a microphone on your guitar and the guitar input at the same time to get a different sound.

Unique halo signal indicators, also found on Scarlett 2i2, let you know that you’ve got a good volume for recording. Red means that your signal is clipping, and that you should reduce the gain. The halo will momentarily turn amber as the signal returns to a healthy level, at which point the halo will turn green again.

A large monitor dial provides a tactile control for the volume of your speakers and headphones, whilst a high quality headphone amp provides a clean yet loud signal to headphones connected to the front panel socket. The direct monitor switch routes audio directly from the inputs to both the headphone and speaker outputs. This allows you to hear the incoming signal with no latency from your music app, which can be distracting and affect your performance.

On the rear panel you will find phono outputs allowing you to connect iTrack Solo to a pair of powered speakers, or to your home Hi-Fi system. The speaker volume can then be controlled using the large dial on the front of iTrack Solo meaning everything you need is within reach.

iTrack Solo will also work with Mac and PC allowing you to record with your desktop or laptop. We’ve included Ableton Live Lite – a powerful recording and sequencing software allowing you to create music, and Focusrite’s Scarlett Plug-In Suite, which provides effects essential to recording – Reverb, Compression, Gate and EQ.

*Please note that at present, GarageBand for iOS will record two simultaneous inputs to a single stereo track, which cannot be separated using iPad. The two separate signals can be separated by transferring your session to a Mac. Other apps are available which allow recording to two separate tracks simultaneously.
