What is it?A USB-powered audio interface for broadcast and other pro-audio applications. DetailsIncorporating dual “professional grade” mic preamps, the UAX220-Mic can be used with multiple computers – for example, a laptop on the road and a desktop in the newsroom or studio. It offers two balanced analogue mono mic/line inputs capable of handling maximum input signals of +10dBu plus two balanced analogue mono line outputs. A switchable -20 dB input signal level attenuator is included together with a stereo headphone output plus 48V phantom power. The UAX220-Mic provides switchable zero-latency direct hardware monitoring of the inputs and allows input monitoring to be switched to mono mode (left channel + right channel) and recording of both inputs mixed. The interface provides A/D and D/A conversion up to 24-bit/48kHz resolution and offers support for both Mac OSX and Windows systems. The software supplied with the UAX220-Mic complies with the USB Audio specification, and (depending on operating system), is compatible with WDM DirectSound, ALSA, and CoreAudio. It’s also possible to use a third-party ASIO driver (Asio4all, Ploytec).
