Fast Track Solo - Audio Interface from Avid

What is Fast Track Solo? The Fast Track Solo from Avid is a new two-input, two-output USB 2.0 digital audio interface that ships with a light version of the industry standard DAW software, Pro Tools Express. The interface has a single microphone preamp with switchable phantom power, and a second instrument input for plugging in an electric guitar or other electronic instrument.

This unit comes with everything you need to turn your Mac, PC, or iPad into a portable, easy-to-use songwriting and audio recording system. Featuring a high-quality mic preamp, instrument input, and Pro Tools Express software, the studio-grade Solo enables you to sound your best, providing an easy entry into Pro Tools, the music industry standard.

The included software delivers many of the recording, MIDI, and notation tools found in the full version of Pro Tools. It includes three virtual instruments and a comprehensive array of plug-ins, suitable for any digital audio process. The interface will however function with any Core Audio or ASIO compatible software, or with iOS-compatible audio recording apps on the Apple iPad.
