While also compatible with Mac and Windows systems, the iXR Trackpad from Tascam is a portable audio/MIDI USB interface primarily designed for recording to your iPhone and iPad at resolutions up to 24-bit/96 kHz. It is MFi-certified, connecting to iOS devices via standard USB to Lightning or 30-pin cables without the need for an external adapter.
The unit features two Ultra-HDDA mic preamps with phantom power, two direct inputs for your guitar or bass, two line inputs for your keyboards, and MIDI in/out connectors to boot. To avoid latency, the monitor knob on the front panel allows you to hear your pure analog path, so you can avoid latency sometimes associated with digital recording.
Two balanced stereo outputs let you connect your iOS device to a concert sound system or to powered speakers. Furthermore, the unit can operate in stand-alone mode when you want to practice an instrument without recording it. In addition to the software bundled with this interface, the Trackpack comes with a Tascam TM-60 microphone, a desktop stand, a vinyl protective cover for the iXR.
