At Winter NAMM 2014, Focusrite introduced the iTrack Dock ($249.99 MSRP) as a complete music recording solution for the iPad. iTrack Dock was designed to provide a comprehensive recording, monitoring and control solution for iPad users. iTrack Dock is a studio-quality Lightning iPad recording interface, featuring dual Focusrite microphone preamps plus two line inputs and an instrument DI, independent stereo monitor and headphone outputs, and a USB port for class-compliant MIDI instruments and controllers.
iTrack Dock provides everything required to record, monitor and control music on the iPad, with precision Focusrite AD/DA conversion with a dynamic range of more than 105dB dynamic range, at up to 24-bit/96kHz sampling. It also charges and powers the iPad at the same time.
The Focusrite recording dock features an industrial design and provides a platform for docking, charging and recording music with the new generation of iPads, including iPad (4th Generation), iPad Air, iPad mini, and iPad mini with retina display.
The two Focusrite mic pre's include 48-volt phantom power for use with condenser microphones. iTrack Dock also features Focusrite’s “Gain Halos,” which are rings of light around the input gain control, for easily setting the input gain: green for healthy signal, red if it’s too hot.
iTack Dock includes a built-in Core Audio driver and works with any Core Audio app, including GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria and more. It also includes the Tape by Focusrite app for iPad, which offers instant recording, mastering and sharing.
