Focusrite iTrack Studio

A recording package to turn an iPad into a fully-functioning studio with an audio interface, monitor headphones and condenser microphone

ollowing the success of the Scarlett Studio recording bundle, UK audio equipment manufacturer Focusrite Audio Engineering have announced the launch of the iTrack Studio – a complete system for the Apple iPad (or Mac/Windows computer) with the essential kit a songwriter would need to start recording music.

Based around Focusrite’s iTrack Solo, a 2-in, 2-out computer audio interface, the iTrack Studio kit includes closed-back monitor headphones, a studio-quality condenser microphone with XLR mic cable, and a long 30-pin device link cable to connect the audio interface to the iPad. Recording to both audio channels will be made possible with Tape, a free iOS app from Focusrite coming in the Autumn from the App Store.

The iTrack Studio recording system consists of…

  • Focusrite 2-channel iTrack Solo audio interface, with up to 24-bit, 96kHz recording and dual inputs for recording instrument and vocals simultaneously
  • CM25S studio condenser mic
  • HP60S closed-back studio headphones
  • XLR cable and 1.2 meter, 30-pin iPad Device Link cable – also connects to iPad 4 and iPad mini via a Lightning adapter (not supplied)
  • Use iTrack Studio with free iPad app Tape by Focusrite, as well as with GarageBand, Cubasis, or any number of other existing iPad recording apps.

The Focusrite iTrack Studio will be available worldwide in September 2013 for a suggested retail price of $299.99 (approx. £195). For more details, check out www.focusrite.com. In the meantime, you can watch a video of John Smith – who was interviewed for Songwriting earlier this year – performing Winter in one take using the Focusrite iTrack Studio at Ounce Studios…
