M-Audio C-Series Audio Interfaces

M-Audio has just announced the immediate release of two new powerful music production audio interfaces, the M-Track 2x2, and 2x2M! The new recording/monitoring interfaces allow artists to produce 24-bit/192kHz studio-quality recordings using a laptop/PC. The compact units are visually pleasing, built using a pro-grade metal outer shell. In the centre of each unit is a decent sized volume control which accentuates their user-friendliness. Packed within their casings are M-Audio’s elite Crystal™ low-noise preamps and A/D converters.
