Nashville, TN (November 19, 2020)—iCON Pro Audio has released its new Duo44 Live portable recording interface, intended for podcasting, home recording, live streaming applications and more.
The Duo44 Live is a four-input/four-output USB recording interface allowing full duplex simultaneous recording and playback. There are dual mic/instrument preamps accessed via front panel-positioned hybrid connectors (it accepts a standard three-pin XLR plug or a quarter-inch balanced TS connector) alongside potentiometers to control the input level of each of the associated analogue microphone/instrument inputs, while the rear panel also includes MIDI I/O on standard five-pin DIN connectors.
A Master level potentiometer (to control the master output level of the analogue outputs) is available on the front panel, while the topside-sited singular Monitor knob allows for direct monitoring when turned clockwise and ‘computer’ monitoring (complete with effects while recording by using low-latency ASIO monitoring) when turned anti-clockwise. The unit sports DA/AD convertors delivering 114 dB dynamic range and provides 24-bit/192 kHz conversions.
The Duo44 Live is equipped with a +5V DC power supply connector, enabling external power to be supplied when working with a USB-connected iPad, for example, so no need, necessarily, to work with a computer-hosted DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). But beyond that, iCON Pro Audio’s (Windows-only) proprietary ProDriver 4 software lets users redirect audio from any source on their computer and also hosts VST or DirectX plug-ins without a DAW.
iCON Pro Audio’s Duo44 Live is available at $169.99 USD.
