Aphex® Introduces the New IN2 Desktop Computer Interface
— The IN2 offers pros and project studios alike a desktop solution that includes two digital and two analog I/Os, two Class A microphone pre-amps, Aphex®’s renowned optical compression and HeadPod 4™ headphone amplification technology in a single simple yet powerful interface —
NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 24, 2013 — Aphex® (booth 6940), a leader in professional audio technology for more than 35 years, has introduced the IN2 Desktop Computer Interface. The IN2 is the solution that project studio, home recordists and broadcast production personnel have been waiting for: a single desktop-unit interface with two analog inputs and outputs, two SPDIF digital inputs and outputs, two high-quality Class A microphone pre-amps, volume, mono/stereo dim controls, Aphex’s renowned optical compression and the acclaimed HeadPod 4™ technology.
Other desktop computer audio interfaces are merely basic input/output devices that still require the discriminating user to incorporate external preamps, compressors and headphone amplifiers. The IN2 brings it all – high-quality mic pre’s, transparent optical compression, and Aphex’s unique HeadPod 4 headphone amplification system. By allowing compression to take place in the analog domain, before going through the A-to-D conversion process, before going through the USB-to-DAW transfer, the best possible recordings can be achieved. Because of the extensive feature set, purchasers of the IN2 are saving potentially thousands of dollars worth of outboard processing and connectivity equipment. With the Aphex IN2, you get it all.
Aphex CEO David Wiener stated, “With the continued increase in desktop-based recording, we felt it was important to apply Aphex’s engineering efforts and acclaimed technologies to a new line of USB recording tools. The IN2 Interface will surely find a home as a key part of recording setups far and wide, and we can’t wait to hear what users cook up with it!”
