Novation nio 2 | 4 USB Audio Interface

Novation nio 2 | 4 USB Audio Interface

The Novation nio 2|4 Mobile USB Interface was designed to meet the demands of today's music makers, from songwriters working on home recordings to club DJs doing live performance. This compact, direct mix monitoring solution has two independent mic inputs-an XLR with phantom power on the rear and a 1/4" jack on the front-for recording high quality audio into your DAW. Switch to high impedance mode and the 1/4" jack becomes a high-quality direct instrument input.

The nio 2|4 also lets you record a stereo signal from a CD/MP3 player or synthesizer with its pair of phono (RCA) inputs. All key processing is accessible from the nio 2|4's hardware allowing you to switch between three different monitor mixes, like two stereo computer audio streams alongside a live input with applied effects.

The nio 2|4 audio interface comes packaged with Novation's Direct FX powerful multi-effects engine which gives you 5 guitar amp models and 4 distortion pedals, based on classic and cool models like the Dunlop Fuzz Face and the Fender Bassman. You also get a delay, chorus, phaser, and 3 filter effects derived from the algorithms of Novation's own popular synth, the Supernova II, as well as Focusrite signal processing solutions such as Gate, Compressor, EQ, and Reverb. The ultra-low latency environment of the Direct FX technology enables all of the Novation nio's effects to be used in realtime, with uninterrupted, high speed performance.

As an added bonus, you get Ableton Live Lite 6 and a host of other free software samples to acquaint you with your new favorite tool.
