M-Audio Fast Track C400 & C600

The all new M-Audio Fast Track C-Series interfaces combine practical controls with advanced audio interface technology, for faster and easier music making. The Fast Track C400 and C600 provide logical solutions for musicians of all skill levels, and with the option of bundling the interface with the industry standard ProTools software, it’s no wonder why everybody wants one!

These C-Series interfaces feature a new design that maximizes your desktop space and easy access to your main controls. The intuitive monitor management system enables the user to compare mixes on multiple sets of studio monitors, now that’s a feature that will make these interfaces any mixers best friend. The C400 and C600 both succeed in delivering quality recordings in less time that you may have experienced before, so you can maintain the creative flow and not worry so much about watching that clock.

So what are the differences between the C400 and C600 then? Well, to be honest, there aren’t that many differences at all. Both models feature identical technical specifications, and there two only differ with a few features.

C400

  • 4-input/6-output design lets you capture and play back multiple sources
  • 2 high-quality mic/line combo preamps on rear panel
  • 4 balanced analog outputs with monitor management system
  • 1 headphone output with independent volume control

C600

  • 6-input/8-output design lets you capture and play back many sources
  • 4 high-quality mic/line combo preamps on rear panel
  • 6 balanced analog outputs with monitor management (speaker switching) system
  • 2 discrete headphone outputs with independent volume controls
