Product Description

A complete guitar recording studio, the AXE I/O is a premium USB audio interface with advanced guitar tone shaping capabilities. Axe I/O is a professional 2 in/5 out audio interface – and controller - designed specifically with the needs of the recording guitarist in mind, providing best-in-class sound quality and powerful features aimed squarely at making your recordings faster, easier and better than ever.

AXE I/O: A truly premium audio interface

  • 2 in/5 out high-end USB audio interface
  • Discrete Class A microphone preamps
  • 24 bit/192Khz maximum sample rate

AXE I/O offers exclusively a triple-topology fully discrete input circuit, with both PURE and a JFET input stages, that can go from transparent to tube-like. Its patent-pending Z-Tone™ impedance-adapting circuit interacts with your axe for a massive range of tonal flexibility, never heard before. A dedicated Amp Out lets you process your recording with real guitar amps and stomps without the need for external accessories and with massively reduced noise.

Triple-topology instrument preamp with Z-Tone
  • The PURE circuit delivers completely transparent and ultra-accurate sound, with >117 dB (A) dynamic range
  • JFET adds subtle harmonic enhancement for a rounder, warmer sound without sacrificing dynamic range
  • ACTIVE bypasses unneeded stages for completely transparent sound when used with active pickups
  • Patent-pending Z-Tone variable impedance Hi-Z input re-shapes the sound of instruments to dramatically reshape the tone of your guitar, or precisely match the impedance of a virtual gear model

AXE I/O seamlessly integrates with the included AmpliTube 4 Deluxe to select presets and control values via the front input knob, and lets you connect pedals and switches to get the most from your virtual rig without ever taking your hands off your axe. It also offers a selection of T-RackS Singles hand-picked to deliver the most useful processors for recording instruments and vocals, plus Ableton Live Lite 10 to get you up and recording instantly.

Very versatile and well built Interface for Guitarists!

Product Review

I really like this. It's the perfect guitarist's studio interface. They don't give you a lot of room to write here, so I'll just highlight the Pros/Cons. Pros: Z-Tone makes a difference and adds some nice finishing touches to the sound Active/Passive pad switch is a big A+ from me Build like a tank!! Very sturdy. Reamp/Amp out works great, but requires routing in DAW. Tuner is a nice touch, seems to be as accurate as my VST Tuners. Footswitch inputs are plug and play. Meters are easy to read Footswitch and preset selector are midi assignable and work in any guitar VST that supports midi. I've tested in TH3 and S-Gear so far, and of course Amplitube. Cons: Only con about the box itself is be aware it's large. About the size of 2 Focusrite 2i2 put back to back. Amplitube Deluxe will probably disappoint, so don't buy this for the software alone. Is it worth the asking price? If you are a guitarist with a small studio, absolutely!

Amplitube's Missing Link

Product Review

Made in Italy, the rugged enclosure is weighty and solid. The features all contribute to bring out the tones possible from Amplitube and give them a more natural feel. The Z-Tone feature and JFET Preamp are worth the price of admission. The built-in tuner is great and switching presets from the unit is great. A couple caveats: make sure to install the latest firmware for the control panel to work in Windows. Also, thus far I am not successfully integrating the IK iRig Stomp IO as a MIDI controller (I'm working on it). This is one of the best purchases I have made in a while and it really livened up the home recording rig. Thanks, AMS!
