With the M-Audio AIR 192/8, you can create 24-bit/192kHz studio-quality recordings with an intuitive and easy-to-use audio interface. The AIR 192/8's flexible inputs enable you to record up to 2 channels at once with its 2 dedicated XLR+1/4" balanced combo inputs with switchable -10dB mic pad, and 2 all-new 1/4" instrument inputs that have a specially designed gain and impedance stage to provide the most accurate representation of a guitar or bass plugged directly into the interface.
