IN5E: USB Audio Interface and Stand alone Mixer
The IN5E covers a huge range of applications for use in the home/project studio. It is suitable for mixing various analog audio signals to a high quality recording output channel in high quality low noise analog format. In addition to this, the unit will operate as a versatile monitor mixer providing facilities for up to 12 channels of monitored signal!
Many users will be glad to see the options provided for connectivity. 3 x Bal mic inputs with switchable phantom power, peak lights, and gain control can be found on the front of the unit (3 x inserts available on these channels). An additional 4 x mono (2 x stereo) line level inputs, 1 x stereo Turn-table , CD or Phono inputs with RIAA EQ and level controls are also present. This is great news for DJ's home audiophile users wanting to digitize their vinyl and transfer to the PC!

Dual Bus Mixer
Each channel on the IN5E can be switched and routed to a monitor or recording output pair and of course to the USB port. Perfect for eliminating latency when tracking recordings directly to your PC, this special "Direct Recording Mode" enables the user to have certain inputs monitored only, and others sent to your "record outs" with high quality analog fidelity. It's as easy as pressing a button!
The USB I/O at the back turns the IN5E to a true computer recording interface. As it is USB class compliant there is no need for complicated driver installations. If you have a Mac you can run the IN5E with Core Audio drivers. Whenn connecting to a Windows PC we recommend installing ASIO drivers. The Freeware ASIO4all provides low latency drivers for Win systems and can be downloaded here: www.asio4all.com
