News Alesis iO|2 Express

USB audio interface from Alesis belonging to the iO series

Alesis announced the iO2 EXPRESS recording interface, with two input channels.

The iO2 EXPRESS is a compact audio-recording interface for home, project and portable studio recording setups. This two-channel USB device for Mac and PC-based systems enables users to record at up to 24-bit resolution for input into virtually all DAW, recording and performance software. The compact recording interface is small enough to comfortably fit into a mobile recording rig, laptop bag or backpack, yet contains high-quality components and circuitry suitable for the studio.

The iO2 features discrete-design preamplifiers and 48-volt phantom power for use with virtually all microphones and audio sources. High quality analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters ensure that every detail of each session or performance gets captured and played back faithfully. The bus-powered USB interface is class compliant for plug-and-play operation with Mac OS X and Windows XP, Vista and 7.

Each channel has an XLR microphone input, a 1/4” TRS insert for external effects units and a 1/4” TS jack that works with line-level sources and can accommodate direct connection of guitars.

The iO2 Express sends and receives two audio channels on a single USB cable for universal interface to a computer. Users can monitor sessions on any studio monitoring or other loudspeaker system via dual 1/4” balanced outputs. For remote tracking and alternative playback, the iO2 Express has a 1/4” TRS headphone output. The iO2 Express features MIDI In and Out jacks for playing and controlling software with keyboard and pad controllers, workstations, and other MIDI-compatible instruments.

It comes complete with a copy of Steinberg Cubase LE digtal audio workstation (DAW) software.

Pricing & Availability
The iO2 Express will be available from musical instrument and professional audio retailers Q2, 2010. It has a U.S. Retail Price of $149.00 and an estimated street price of $99.00.
