The iO4 is Now Available

This four-channel, 24-bit audio interface works with your software of choice on Mac, PC, and iOS (with Apple USB adapter)! It has Four input channels each with XLR and 1/4" jacks plus an insert, MIDI I/O, and four assignable outputs for maximum utility and flexibility. We also think it's our best-sounding interface. Now you can get your hands on one of your own. Learn more about the iO4 here.
