New M-Audio M-Track Audio Interfaces Announced at NAMM

As fans of the old M-Audio Fast Track as an entry-level interface for the home user (it has since moved under the Avid brand as the Avid Fast Track Solo), we’ve tried several of the other M-Audio interfaces over the years. One that became a bit of a staple in our small video production room was the M-Audio M-Track, a great 2-channel USB interface (which has also updated to the MKII). While the company has toyed with a few variations of the M-Track formula in the past, they seem to be going all-in this year.

At the winter NAMM show, M-Audio announced a whole range of new M-Track interfaces, from the M-Track Solo (2×2)…to the USB-C wired M-Track 84 (8×4)…to the M-Track 1212 (12/12). The team at M-Audio really do seem to be trying to appeal to a wide range of users, and we’re looking forward to getting our hands on one or two of them in the future. That studio could use an upgrade

Here is the full press release from M-Audio:
