Studio Grade Sound Quality Compact Studio Interface

The Track16 Breakout provides the same connectors as the Track16’s included cable. It connects to Track16 with a custom, shielded 40-inch DB25-to-DB25 cable (included with the Breakout box).

The 40-inch DB25-to-DB25 cable that comes with the Breakout box is a custom-designed, specially shielded cable that protects the balanced analog audio connects and fully prevents crosstalk among the many channels that it carries.

Key Features

  • Track16 can draw power from its FireWire connection to the computer, so you can operate remotely on laptop battery power.
  • Track16 can record and play all channels simultaneously, and high-speed USB 2.0 provides plenty of bandwidth, even at 192 kHz.
  • Track16 provides time-tested drivers for Mac OS X and Windows (8, 7 and Vista) for cross-platform compatibility with virtually all audio software via WDM, ASIO, and Core Audio drivers.
  • Track16’s aluminum alloy chassis is lightweight, yet incredibly sturdy and durable, and designed to withstand the rigors of the studio, stage, and tour bus.
