Fast Track is a 2-input, 2-output USB audio interface designed mostly for recording guitar and vocals. It features one XLR microphone input with +48V phantom power and one ¼” instrument input. Each input has a corresponding gain control on top of the interface. A ¼” stereo headphone output and RCA stereo outputs are controlled by a large output knob, which is also found on top of the interface. The Fast Track offers 24-bit/48kHz recording via plug-and-play USB connection, and it features a Direct Monitoring button for zero-latency.

One of the most valuable features of Fast Track is ProTools M-Powered 8 Essential. This included software offers 16 mono or stereo audio tracks, 60+ virtual instruments, and basic effects processing. Not only is Fast Track compatible with ProTools M-Powered 8, it will work with other popular recording software like Cubase, GarageBand, Live, Logic, Reason, and SONAR.
