iTrack Solo & Scarlett 2i2/2i4

Post by timmyg » Tue Jan 15, 2013 4:33 am

Im currently debating which of these to buy:

1) Can anyone confirm that the iTrack Solo records at 24 bit on iPad in Auria?
The website says: 'some apps also allow 24 bit recording with the itrack Solo'
A bit vague to whether it does or not. I contacted Focusrite but no reply yet.

2) Also can anyone recommend a usb powered hub for the Scarlett 2i2? Does any powered hub work?

3) Has the 2i4 been proven to work with Auria?


any help in confirming the above would be great,
cheers

I am using the "Belkin 2.0 4-port USB white" hub with the 2i2. Works great.

Auria records everything at 24 bits, so if an interface provides it, Auria will record it.

Thanks Rim, I am aware that Auria records at 24 bit, but what I'm really after is if the iTrack Solo will record at 24 bit?

I would assume it does, since it's a 24 bit interface.

2i4 definitely works and needs a powered hub..
I use a D-Link 4 way hub

iTrack Solo definitely records true 24 bits audio samples.

I've personally recorded and checked several samples from ipad/iphone interfaces myself using Harmonicdog Multitrackdaw. Then verified the samples using Goldwave.

Guitarjack 2, Line 6 Mobile In, Line 6 Sonic Port, iTrack Solo, Scarlett 2i2 and Rode iXY are some interfaces that I have tried and checked. And they all provide true 24bit audio samples.

Tascam IM, Tascam IM2 and Tascam IU2 don't deliver 24bit. With these, you can see in Goldwave that even if the file says it is 24bit, the audio samples are 16bit.

I used Multitrackdaw from Harmonicdog to record the samples; but the interfaces should give the same results with Auria.

Is it possible to monitor from the iPad headphone jack and the headphone output on the 2i2 at the same time?
