The new M-Audio AIR series is here to offer premium-fidelity audio to a wide range of users’ needs. The family consists of five devices which, between them, can cover every musical situation from solo recordings to multi-input projects. With the ability to capture audio at 24-bit/192kHz, these interfaces will turn your computer into a fully-fledged, high-fidelity recording studio.
Each AIR interface is loaded with M-Audio’s exclusive Crystal preamps. These low-noise preamps work in conjunction with pristine A/D converters to deliver the highest audio performance in their class. 24-bit/192kHz audio ensures you’ll have the wide dynamic range and detail you need to capture clean and nuanced recordings.
Faster Than Fast
The AIR interface family is powered by a high-speed USB connection enabling an incredibly low latency roundtrip of 2.59ms. This means you’ll be able to monitor your audio in real time, free from pops and glitches, enabling the best possible performance from your artists.
Easy to Use
With a large central volume knob and onboard LED indicators, the AIR series is purpose-built for desktop use. Each model comes complete with a comprehensive software package that gives you everything you’ll need to make professional recordings.
Each AIR interface comes with Pro Tools | First M-Audio Edition – borne out a collaboration with Avid to create a special version of Pro Tools that is specially configured for use with M-Audio hardware.
The devices also include Ableton Live Lite - the powerful music creation tool designed to inspire musicians and producers with its fluid audio/MIDI environment.
Each AIR interface also includes a collection of virtual effects and instruments including a drummer, drum machine, synth, strings, percussion, organ, and piano.
Make no mistake, with two DAWs and a host of instruments and effects, every AIR interface is ready to get you fully up and running.
