A Host of Routing Options with the ProFire 2626!
M-Audio continues to make award-winning FireWire audio interfaces, and their new ProFire 2626 is sure to be a hit! With a sleek black look, the ProFire 2626 is true to its name, delivering 26 x 26 channels of simultaneous I/O - masterfully handling up to 52 audio streams with an onboard DSP mixer. No matter what connections you need to make, the Pro Fire2626 has you covered, offering eight analog mic/line inputs, complete with M-Audio's acclaimed Octane preamps for great sound. You can use the ProFire 2626 directly as a standalone FireWire audio interface, or you can hook it up to your 003 or any ADAT-ready interface via its optical ADAT connection, using it as an eight-channel mic pre! You can even get started right out of the box by using the included Ableton Live Lite software - or get to know the industry-standard, because the ProFire 2626 is Pro Tools M-Powered compatible! With LED clip indicators, per-channel gain control, switchable phantom power, alongside dual headphone outputs, M-Audio got it right with the ProFire 2626!

M-Audio ProFire 2626 at a Glance:

    Eight Octane preamps for great sound
    Onboard DSP mixer for flexible routing
    FireWire interface that doubles as an ADAT mic pre
    High resolution sound with multiple ins and outs
    M-Powered compatible

Eight Octane pre-amps
Great sound depends on the quality of your preamps, and the ProFire 2626 delivers a whopping eight of M-Audio's award-winning Octane preamps. Each preamp has a generous 75dB gain range, a -20dB pad, and phantom power that you can switch on channels 1-4 or 5-8. Whether you're using your favorite dynamics, ribbons, or condensers, you can get great sound for the whole band through the ProFire 2626.

Onboard DSP mixer for flexible routing
M-Audio understands that not every recording situation is the same. With an onboard DSP router, you can select from up to 52 streams of audio and then send them to any of the 26 hardware outputs by routing in stereo pairs. Select from any of the 26 hardware inputs and 26 software returns and make them sources for any of the ProFire 2626's 18 input channels and create up to eight stereo mixes. With the ProFire 2626, you can create favorite presets and recall them whenever you like.

Highly versatile
You can use your ProFire 2626 as a standalone eight-channel preamp, an eight-channel A/D-D/A converter, as well as a digital format converter. When in standalone mode, the eight analog inputs route to the ProFire 2626's frist eight ADAT optical output channels, making it easy to use line, instrument, and mic ins with other digital gear! By accepting optical ADAT input, the ProFire 2626 can route those eight channels to its eight analog outputs, providing D/A functionality as well. Adding even more flexibility, the ProFire 2626 can convert coaxial S/PDIF to optical S/PDIF.

High sound quality with tons of ins and outs
With high-quality converters, the ProFire 2626 delivers sampling rates up to 192kHz. Acclaimed JetPLL technology provides stable synchronization and works to eliminate jitter that can otherwise reduce audio quality. the ProFire 2626 allows master or slave operation via its internal clock, and its internal drivers deliver ultra-low latency. With ADAT lightpipe in and out, 2 x 2 S/PDIF digital I/O, on top of XLR and 1/4" TRS line inputs, with 1/4" instrument jacks on the front panel, the ProFire 2626 is readily equipped to handle your recording needs.

M-Powered compatible
With Pro Tools M-Powered and an M-Audio interface, like the ProFire 2626, you can work anywhere, anytime with the industry standard in music production software. You can open sessions created in Pro Tools M-Powered software with any Windows XP or Mac OS X Digidesign Pro Tools TDM or LE system, giving you unprecedented production options for your music. The latest version of Pro Tools M-Powered streamlines MIDI production with the introduction of Instrument Tracks, support for multi-processor use with RTAS plug-ins for increased performance, and a load of other performance-enhancing upgrades.
