Add a professional edge to your studio with the M-Track Eight from M-Audio. This eight- input USB audio interface enables you to track large music ensembles, record the band, or mic an entire drum set with pro-grade audio components and a myriad of connections. Eight combo XLR+1/4" inputs accommodate nearly any source, from phantom-powered microphones to your favorite guitar, and eight dedicated outputs offer versatile playback options. The XLR inputs are designed to work with microphones and other Lo-Z sources, and the phantom power switch enables you to use condenser microphones by delivering 48v phantom power to the XLR inputs (Channels 1-4; 5-8). M-Track Eight also has two conveniently located inputs on the front panel that can be switched to allow instrument- level signals, so you can plug your electric guitar or bass directly into M-Track Eight and start recording. Individual gain knobs with meters help ensure the proper input level by providing real-time visual feedback.

Improved Monitoring for Better Recording Sessions
M-Track Eight offers ultra-low latency monitoring of the input signal—either through the speakers or via headphones. The USB/Analog Direct Balance knob adjusts the balance between the direct inputs and the playback from your computer software for accurate monitoring during tracking and recording sessions. Flexible output routing lets you send signals to outboard gear or analog mixers for summing or processing. Additionally, two headphone outputs, located on the front panel, have their own level and selectable-source controls for creating custom headphone mixes.

Pro-Grade Audio
M-Track Eight features pristine and precise audio recording with up to 24-bit/96 kHz resolution. Each input channel is equipped with a high-headroom input that features M- Audio's sought-after Octane Preamp Technology. The result is a robust signal path for clean, professional sound. In addition, each input comes with dedicated line-input circuitry so you can record and track with your favorite external preamps.

Immediate Studio Integration
In addition to outstanding audio performance, M-Track Eight connects to your computer via USB 2.0 and easily integrates into your studio with its standard 1U 19” rack size. With a single USB cable, M-Track Eight creates a two-way audio connection with your Mac or PC, enabling you to record directly into your favorite DAW or playback audio to mix and master your tracks. Plus, Cubase 7 LE comes bundled with M-Track Eight for out-of-the-box music creation and gives you a powerful software environment to record, edit, and bounce down your songs.

TekSpek Guides
Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

In computing terms, system buses are used to connect various components to the motherboard’s core logic and, often, to each other. Modern PCs run with a multitude of high-speed buses ranging from the interconnects between, say, the chipset and the CPU, graphics card, memory, and peripherals.

Updating Drivers
Updating Drivers
Date Issued: 25th Jun 2008

Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically.

M-Audio M-Track Eight - USB 2, 96KHz, 24 Bit, 8 Mic Pre's, 8 / 8 Analogue I/O is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Potentially very useful, but totally let down by buggy drivers It's a real shame - I was greatly looking forward to upgrading our PC audio interfacing with this, but it has proved a frustrating disappointment owing to Windows 10 drivers that won't work reliably on real world machines! From numerous posts from many people on the M-Audio forum and elsewhere (just Google M-Audio Drivers Crash) it's obviously not just me that finds the M-Audio driver routinely crashes Windows 10 with a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, which usually indicates a programming error in the driver. Despite all the finger pointing by M-Audio staff at all the other possible causes of a crash, it is absolutely apparent that many people have exactly the same problem as I do on multiple computers. That is, with no M-Audio driver present the computer runs audio applications glitch free for weeks with no restarts; then install the M-Audio driver and it crashes during audio operations, maybe once in three days, sometimes three or more times in a day.Or it doesn't totally crash but just refuses to record or replay audio. I bought this gear for a local broadcast radio station as supposedly top quality equipment from a reputable maker, and it is distressing to have the station silenced or disrupted repeatedly in a way that never happened when we used 'cheapo' Behringer interfaces that require no special drivers. If the drivers cannot be installed and work reliably on a majority of real systems 'in the wild', then they are not fit for purpose. It is not acceptable for them to be reliable only under laboratory conditions with a pristine installation of nothing else. It's long overdue for M-Audio to get some capable software driver engineers and on the case and find out why their drivers are trying to reference paged out code or other invalid addresses under common circumstances across a wide range of different systems. If this can't be achieved, then the gear is simply not ready for the professional market, and M-Audio should bow out with a full recall and refund to dissatisfied purchasers. On other matters, I find that the line inputs start to distort and then clip at way lower input levels than pro gear should - I have had to insert -10dB attenuators on the inputs, and then even the input gain controls down low it just about manages to cope with +12dB peaks. It also consumes a lot of power and gets very warm - it has a laptop style 19V 3.7A input and if installed against other gear in a rack its temperature makes it clear that it is definitely drawing a good proportion of that power!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I have had this product 4 weeks and after simply switching on an acoustic guitar pickup, one of the components blew, all the lights went red(max) and now the unit is totally unusable. According to the M-Audio support forum, this appears to be a common issue, and and has been for some time - yet still the unit is being sold. Do not buy this!
