Introducing ESI's new multi-channel audio interface – now shipping from Time+Space

Published: Wed November 05, 2008  News Feed

Multi-purpose 4-in 6-out multi-channel audio interface

The U46 XL is the successor of the famous U46DJ interface. As its predecessor, it provides 2 stereo line inputs, a microphone input with +48V phantom power and a headphone output and now has improved analog circuitry improving the audio quality as well as the professional microphone preamplifier with XLR input.

This makes U46 XL the perfect solution to record signals from dynamic or condenser microphones on the road or in your studio.

The unit also features an instrument input (Hi-Z), typically to connect a guitar directly to it. Two totally separate stereo line inputs on the backside provide 4 simultaneously usable input channels at one time. There are also 6 independent individual outputs on the backside, perfect for multi-channel playback applications like to provide individual outputs for software synthesizers, to provide independent playback channels for DJ software or to provide surround playback capability via a 5.1 setup. A separate mix output with professional TRS outputs could be used to connect U46 XL to professional stereo studio monitors.

A further feature is the DirectWIRE support in the driver, allowing you to record signals from one application to another internally. U46 XL works with this driver based on ESI´s EWDM technology under Windows XP and Windows Vista, however U46 XL is also Mac OS X compatible.
