ALVA presents the Nanoface, a 12-channel, bus-powered USB audio and MIDI interface


The Nanoface provides 6 audio I/Os. A MIDI input and two MIDI outputs form a combination to connect a keyboard and external synthesizers or samplers.

  • Four analog inputs – two of them equipped with mic preamps with phantom power - allow the simultaneously recording of different sources at the same time, like a microphone, an electric guitar and a synthesizer. The Nanoface provides an Hi-Z instrument input - routable to any of the four analog inputs. For spontaneous jam sessions with a notebook or as mobile recording station without the need for more equipment – live or with band rehearsals.
  • Four analog outputs provide a setup for monitoring two stereo signals at the same time, e. g. with main speakers and headphones. The signal from output 1/2 can be routed to output 3/4 and individually adjusted.
  • The digital I/O works in standard SPDIF format. This makes the Nanoface a potential partner for a digital signal from a CD player, or an effect unit as a source for a surround receiver with digital optical input.


The Nanoface measures only a quarter of the size of some bigger interfaces, according to Alva. In doing so it´s light as a feather.


The Nanoface needs one USB 2.0/3.0 connection, to transfer all audio and midi data in and out of the computer. The Nanoface works with the power from the USB connector. It does not need a power supply.


All features - including managment, monitoring, phantom power for the microphones - can be adjusted with the big multi controller directly on the unit.

 

Connectivity:

  • Audio: 6 inputs + 6 outputs
  • MIDI: 1 x input + 2 x output
  • 4 x analog I/O (channels 1-4)
  • Digital optical SPDIF I/O (channels 5-6)
  • 2 x Mic preamps including phantom power (analog inputs 1/2)
  • 1 x Hi-Z instrument input (alternatively usable instead of analog input 1-4)


Availability
The Nanoface will be available in June 2011.
