The culmination of Focusrite's 27-year heritage as a leading manufacturer of
pro-audio technology, iTrack Solo adds studio-quality guitar and microphone
inputs to the Apple iPad; the same inputs found in recording studios around
the world. It's compatible out of the box with a range of music-making apps,
from GarageBand to Auria – just plug in and play. Packed neatly into a sleek
metal chassis that fits in the palm of the hand, it's the perfect companion
for any singer/songwriter wanting to take their demos to the next level, when
the inspiration is there but the studio is not.

Now available for $199.95 MSRP ($159.99 Street), the iTrack Solo is an
affordable and high-performance recording solution and the ideal holiday gift
for aspiring musicians.

Key Features

  oMade For iPad. Compatible with Mac OS X and Windows: iTrack Solo is an
    official 'Made For iPad' accessory and works with many iOS apps including
    GarageBand. Plug in your guitar, bass, keyboard or microphone and hit
    record. It couldn't be simpler.
  oUncompromising audio clarity: Record audio at higher than CD quality
    (24-bit, 96kHz). Phantom Power enables the use of top-quality studio
    microphones.
  oHigh-end components: iTrack Solo features an award-winning Focusrite
    microphone preamplifier, the choice of leading artists and recording
    engineers around the world.
  oIntelligent controls: Getting the right volume is important - two "halo"
    lights surround the input level knobs, turning red if record volume is too
    high.
  oConnect directly to a loudspeaker system: Rear panel speaker outputs allow
    for playback over an audio system.
  oRoadworthy protection: Its rugged aluminum uni-body case means iTrack Solo
    is suitable for even the most adventurous musicians.

Giles Orford, Marketing Director of Focusrite, said: "Artists such as the
Arctic Monkeys, Lily Allen and Justin Bieber all hit the road to success by
sharing their music online, but they didn't get there by strumming or wailing
into a webcam. With iTrack Solo, we wanted to give consumers a really simple
way to get themselves heard without compromising on sound quality. As our
product works with many iPad apps, it now couldn't be easier to record, mix
and share your music."
