IK Multimedia AXE I/O USB Audio Interface
Every knob, feature, and component on the IK Multimedia AXE I/O USB recording interface was carefully selected for the demanding guitar and bass player. A JFET input with continuously variable Z-Tone impedance, alongside switchable settings for active and passive pickups, provides the ideal front end for each of your instruments in the included AmpliTube 4 Deluxe suite. Transparent converters and a low-jitter clock deliver your performance in full 24-bit/192kHz hi-fi to the included Ableton Live 10 Lite suite or your DAW of choice. And features such as an onboard tuner and a dedicated re-amp output make the AXE I/O the only piece of gear you’ll need on your desk. Factor in 140 amp, cab, and stomp models and an in-line mix rack of 10 built-in T-RackS FX Singles (EQ, compression, reverb, and mic modeling), and with the IK Multimedia AXE I/O from Sweetwater, you’ve got all you need to translate your riffs and ideas into polished, marketable productions. A professional-grade headphone amplifier completes the package.
A Powerful Guitar Front End
JFET mojo. PURE clarity.
Pedal builders and recording engineers have long known the punch and harmonic sweetness running a JFET preamp into an amp can impart. If you’re looking to add some analog mojo to your digital amps and stomps, the AXE I/O’s JFET input stage can help. On the other hand, if you’re looking for maximum clarity and headroom, AXE I/O’s switchable PURE circuitry nets you accuracy and clarity with 117dB of dynamic range.
For active and passive pickups
Whether you play vintage singles or modern active humbuckers, the AXE I/O yields the best results for every guitar in your collection.
Variable Z-Tone impedance
One of the AXE I/O’s defining features is its Z-Tone variable impedance. This control allows you to shape the tone of your guitar to best suit every amp and stomp model in your virtual amp collection
A Comprehensive Recording Solution
Class A mic preamps
A pair of Class A mic preamps equips the AXE I/O for full-fledged song production. Onboard +48-volt phantom power readies these preamps for today’s condenser mics.
Transparent digital conversion
The challenge in guitar modeling is accurately capturing the instrument’s nuance and dynamics on the way in. The AXE I/O’s onboard 24-bit/192kHz are more than capable of translating the attack, definition, and frequency response of your guitar or bass into the digital environment.
Likewise, the AXE I/O’s accurate clocking keeps your performances free from artifacts for cleaner tracking and tighter mixes.
High-current headphone amp
A reference-grade headphone output in the AXE I/O is your ticket to mix translation and more enjoyable practice sessions.
