Designed for mobile and desktop production, the compact Fast Track Ultra interface utilizes USB 2.0 technology, making suitable for all current PC and Mac computers.
The Fast Track Ultra introduces M-Audio's brand-new MX Core DSP technology. The MX Core mixer employs an array of eight individual DSP cores to deliver near-zero latency, effects (e.g. to apply reverb while tracking vocals) and a matrix for sophisticated channel routing options—accessible via an intuitive control panel that utilizes a separate mixer for each pair of outputs, all without burdening the computer.
The Fast Track Ultra features four preamps with M-Audio Octane technology. Features include +48V phantom power, signal/peak LED indicator lights and a pull-out gain knob that activates a 20dB pad. The first two inputs also accept instrument-level signals.
The Fast Track Ultra provides six channels of analog inputs and outputs plus 2-channel digital S/PDIF I/O. The unit features two inserts (before A/D conversion) on the first two channels. Easy connection via a single USB 2.0 cable delivers audio/MIDI communication with a computer, as well as bus power (USB bus power enables analog channels 1 and 2, S/PDIF I/O, and headphone output 1; included power supply required for full 8 x 8 operation).
