Two Channel USB Audio Interface, Alesis iO2 Express

The Alesis iO2 EXPRESS is a compact, audio-recording interface for home studios and portable recording setups. This two-channel USB device for Mac and PC-based systems enables you to record at up to 24-bit resolution for input into virtually all DAW, recording, and performance software. It is USB bus powered, so there’s no external power supply needed.

Discrete-design preamplifiers and 48-volt phantom power ensure that you capture microphones’ complete signal. High quality A/D and D/A converters ensure that every detail of your session or performance gets recorded – and played back on your monitoring system. It’s also class compliant, so you can use the plug-and-play iO2 EXPRESS with virtually any computer.

The iO2 EXPRESS sends and receives two audio channels on a single USB cable for simple, universal interface. There are inputs for microphones, line-level sources, and instruments including guitars. You can monitor sessions with the balanced studio monitor and headphone outputs. The iO2 EXPRESS also features traditional MIDI In and Out jacks for playing and controlling software with keyboard and pad controllers, workstations, and other MIDI-compatible instruments.

Each channel has a gain trim control, and there’s a master level control for optimal gain staging. There’s a dedicated volume control for monitoring on headphones, and you can also visually monitor levels and operation using the tricolour, stereo metering tree and lighted status indicators. The iO2 EXPRESS comes complete with a copy of Steinberg Cubase LE digital audio workstation (DAW) software.
