Hatsubai's review"You get what you pay for"

M-Audio Fast Track
The M-Audio Fast Track is a budget preamp for those who want to get to recording quickly without too much of a hassle. The pre features 2 inputs, 2 outputs, 24bit/48KHz audio, USB 2.0, XLR inputs with 48V phantom power, 1/4'' instrument input w/ gain control, 1/4'' stereo headphone output, RCA speaker outputs, output level knob for adjusting volume, direct monitoring button and bundled software.


The device itself isn't too bad in the way they set it up. There are no annoying breakout cables, so you don't have to deal with that. A lot of times, people cram tons of features into a small box and then have a breakout cable. These cables can snag and cause all kinds of issues. By having it all self contained, you have a much cleaner work area. It's a pretty intuitive device, and it's easy to use. Drivers seem to be fairly stable, so no issues there. I used this with the bundled software and had no issues at all.


The device is very simple to set up and start using. You simply plug everything into their corresponding ports, open up your DAW, set your preferences up and you're good to go. Making music is very easy with this. The pres themselves aren't the cleanest out there, but what do you expect from something this cheap? They definitely get the job done, but I wish it was firewire. I know some people dislike firewire, but it's still superior to USB 2.0 in real world applications.


If you're on a budget, this pre isn't too bad. If you can afford it, I recommend trying to get the Fast Track Pro. It'll have a few more features, although they basically sound the same. Try to find one of these used and use it in conjunction with your favorite DAW.

This material has bought t too fast and with some bad advice Vendor

I use a Rode NT1, 2 lecto acoustic (Folk and nylon) and electric, a master keyboard usb,

It is supposed to be used to record good quality models

Config small unpretentious aves 4GB of Ram.


The drivers are very stable

Software: Cubase, WaveLab and plugs adquats

Very few tracks are coutables the same time. I record track by track

No start date

Latency is randomized (depending on the mood of the hardware)


Installation without any worries

Simpler configuration

It is incompatible with me

What are you talking about manual?


2 months

Before dcrocher a little home studio I had an Edirol UA-25

His only utility in the home studio of tinkering, otherwise it is perfect for listening to music ... like the internal sound card of the PC ... and worse

Well, 90 it can always serve someone I know who wants dbuter.

With the experience I change ds tomorrow and even if there are better from this manufacturer, I have a horrible priori

I bought this card starting in computer music, my first need was able to record my guitar and some taken from sound via the microphone input. For both tasks the map proves rather effective. I work in Live with Phenom and 4GB of RAM, it will run without any problem!


Level drivers no worries! I regularly change the desktop (mac / pc) and everything works every time without problems! card is very easy to use, adjust, and also very easy to route from Live. The main drawback is the lack of punch from the guitar input, however in this small downside Live adjusts very easily!


This card is truly plug n play! I never installed any driver to use (except Asio!)


I bought this card as I had very little knowledge of computer music. It made me very great services, and given the purchase price I think it was largely amortized! However, if you move quickly computer music, you'll quickly new desires (for me it was swinging my 8 tracks in an analog console) and you will NECESSARILY move on!
