iConnectAUDIO4+'s Multi-Host technology supports multiple audio and MIDI peripherals, and also multiple computing devices, all at once. iConnectAUDIO4+ can do the job of multiple interfaces and numerous cables. Any combination of up to two Mac, PC, and iOS devices as well as up to nine connected MIDI peripherals can share iConnectAUDIO4+'s high quality audio inputs, outputs and MIDI I/O.
The Audio4+ features four ultra-premium mic preamps on XLR/jack combo connections with 48v Phantom Power for recording a combination of up to four microphones, two line inputs and two instrument inputs. On the rear panel, there are four analogue outputs for connecting two pairs of monitors, while there is also a dedicated headphone output, controlled using the touch-pad and volume control on the front of the unit.
The Audio4+ utilises iConnectivity's multi-host and Audio and MIDI passThru™ technologies to bridge iOS, Mac and PC in a professional environment, with many practical applications. Control a virtual instrument (or any music programme) on one computer device from another, with audio and MIDI flowing back and forth without extra cables, and with no audio degradation. All the computer devices act like a single integrated machine.
The Host Port is another unique technology. Many peripherals use USB for MIDI I/O, but an iOS device can only access one of them with its single port. The iConnnectAUDIO4+, thanks to its Host Port, is the only iOS interface to eliminate that limitation, enabling users to connect up to 8 Class-Compliant USB MIDI devices at the same time by using a standard USB powered hub.
iConnectivity's iConfig software for iOS, MAC & PC (included) offers complete control over iConnectAUDIO4+'s I/O, providing direct control over audio and MIDI routing. Snapshots are then stored in flash memory on the device. On the stage, iConnectAUDIO4+ can also operate stand-alone without a computer. It mixes and merges audio, and hosts sophisticated MIDI routing and processing set-ups using both 5-pin and USB MIDI connections.
