NAMM 2008: E-MU announces Tracker Pre USB audio interface

Published: Sat January 19, 2008  News Feed

E-MU Systems has announced its new Tracker Pre USB 2.0 Audio Interface/Mobile Preamp, the ultimate portable USB audio interface for Mac and PC, offering pristine 24-bit/192kHz recording and playback, direct monitoring, and a host of professional features in a compact, USB bus-powered package.

The Tracker Pre USB provides users with two XTC™ Class-A, ultra-low noise Mic/Line/Hi-Z preamplifiers that can be run independently or in stereo to record guitars, basses, keyboards or microphones with optimal audio performance. CurrentMorph™ is a patent-pending circuit design that allows Tracker Pre to offer +48V phantom power and use our XTC premium high-power converters, while using only USB bus power.


  • Pristine 24-bit/192kHz A/D and D/A converters (A/D and D/A: 112dB measured SNR performance) 
  • Preamplified analog signals are available before the A/D converters, allowing the Tracker Pre to be used as a standalone high-quality stereo microphone preamp (using optional power supply) 
  • Hardware zero-latency direct monitoring (mono or stereo) with continuously variable level control 
  • Plug-and-play operation with hands-on control of all major functions 
  • Independent ground lift switches for optimal audio fidelity/flexibility 
  • USB bus powered (can also be powered using optional 5V power supply) 
  • Cross-platform support (Mac OS X and Windows XP32/XP64/Vista32/Vista64) and compatibility with most popular audio/sequencer applications (ASIO2, WDM, MME, Apple Core Audio and Core MIDI supported) 
  • Includes newly updated Production Tools software bundle with E-MU's Proteus VX Software Sound Module, as well as software by Cakewalk, Steinberg, Ableton, IK Multimedia, BIAS, and many more - everything needed to create, record, edit, and master your music is in the box

I/O Configuration:

  • Two XTC™ Class-A, ultra-low noise, Mic/Line/Hi-Z preamps. Balanced XLR, 1/4" TRS and 1/8" Inputs (-127dB EIN) with 60dB of gain 
  • 1/8" Stereo Condenser Microphone Input with 5V Power 
  • Two 1/4" Balanced/Unbalanced Outputs (112dB SNR) 
  • Two 1/4" Unbalanced Send/Return Inserts prior to A/D converters
