Award-winning Octane preamp technology

The quality of your preamps is critical to how your music sounds. Embraced by reviewers and audio professionals alike, M-Audio set a new standard with the 8-channel Octane™ preamp. The ProFire 2626 delivers the same award-winning Octane technology with its eight onboard mic preamps, giving you pristine audio fidelity right from the start of your signal path. In addition to exceptional sound, each preamp has a generous 75dB gain range, 48V phantom power, and a -20dB pad.

User-assignable master volume control

The ProFire 2626 interface delivers a new level of flexible control via the customizable master volume knob. It’s assignable to any or all of the four analog output pairs, so you can choose which output pair will feed your main monitors. You can also choose whether the master volume knob influences either or both of the two headphone outputs, or operates independently of them. In addition, you can assign the master level control to all four output pairs to uniformly attenuate up to a 7.1 surround mix.

High-definition 192kHz sound and solid performance

The ProFire 2626 employs high-quality converters to deliver sampling rates up to 192kHz for pristine, high-definition sound quality. The unit also features critically acclaimed JetPLL technology to provide extremely stable synchronization and eliminate jitter that can degrade audio quality. In addition, the ProFire 2626 allows master or slave operation via internal clock, ADAT optical, S/PDIF and word clock. M-Audio’s mature, stable drivers deliver solid performance and ultra-low latency. Complete with Octane preamp technology and premium A/D-D/A converters, you won’t find a better sounding or more flexible host-based audio interface.

Pro Tools M-Powered Compatible

The ProFire 2626 is an extremely powerful interface for Pro Tools M-Powered. Flexible I/O, top-quality sound and low latency round out an incredible recording environment that is file-compatible with many other pro and project studios around the world.*

Please visit m-audio.com for update availability. 96kHz and 18 x 18 I/O maximum with Pro Tools M-Powered.

Onboard DSP mixer and router

Customize your setup and record the way you want thanks to the power and flexibility of the ProFire 2626 onboard DSP mixer and router. Use the router to select from up to 52 audio streams and send them to any of the 26 hardware outputs.* The adaptable onboard DSP mixer allows you to select from any of the 26 hardware inputs and 26 software returns as sources for any of its 18 input channels—allowing you to create up to eight stereo mixes. You can also create presets and instantly recall these setups at a later date.

*Routing in stereo pairs.

Standalone operation

The ProFire 2626 doubles as a standalone 8-channel preamp, 8-channel A/D-D/A converter and digital format converter. In standalone mode, the eight analog inputs route to the first eight ADAT optical output channels. This facilitates use of the line, instrument and mic ins—including the preamps—with other digital gear. Similarly, the first eight ADAT optical input channels feed the eight analog outputs to provide D/A functionality. You can also disable the D/A conversion to allow the analog input channels to route to both the analog and ADAT optical outputs—transforming the ProFire 2626 into a standalone 8-channel mic pre with eight discrete analog outputs plus 8-channel ADAT output. When the second optical port is not used for A/D conversion, the ProFire 2626 can also convert coaxial S/PDIF to optical S/PDIF.

Professional connectivity for the most demanding projects

The ProFire 2626 features essential connectivity for any studio, delivering rock-solid stability and optimal sound quality. Analog inputs are sourced from the eight combo jacks as either XLR mic or ¼” TRS balanced line inputs. In addition, analog channels 1 and 2 provide easily accessible ¼” TS instrument jacks on the front panel. Eight ¼” TRS connectors provide balanced line outputs for monitoring and interfacing with other outboard gear. Digital I/O is available via 2 x 2 S/PDIF and 16 x 16 ADAT Lightpipe. The two front-panel headphone jacks feature separate sources and independent level controls for additional cue mixing flexibility.

M-Audio ProFire 2626 High-Definition FireWire Audio Interface Reviews


M-Audio 2626

Great product for the home studio or the pro! Tons of routing and the pre's are very clean with no noise. I have two running for 16in and 16 out to my console with no problems what so ever... Would recomend to anyone and extremely easy to set up...Be sure to get the latest drivers and you will be happy with this very well built pro interface. I've used RME, Motu, Line 6, and this is very close in my opinion to the RME with better routing so don't be fooled by it's price...


M-Audio ProFire 2626

I thought I should voice my opinion on this really good piece of hardware. I have used a lot of Audio Interfaces, ranging from PreSonus, RME and even Digidesign, but the ProFire really does beat them all.

Why does it, your wondering? Firstly, the built in Octane pre-amps are so clean and clear, and they do not give out any unwanted noises or hissing you can get from other Audio Interfaces. Also you don\'t have to crank the volume up to the full, to get a loud sound. What I really like about it, is that it has a -20db pad, so if your recording really loud things like a guitar cab, use the -20db pad and it sounds perfect.

It has two headphone inputs which is very handy when recording, and it has two separate phantom power buttons on inputs 1-4 and 5-8. That can be very good for the use of different microphones at one time. (Condensers & Ribbons). It also has two jack instrument inputs on the front (which give a much better sound), so you don\'t need to connect them to the XLR inputs on the back. Also it has 2 LED lights to indicate Clip and another if the signal is being received.

It has two firewire connections which is absolutely great and much, much better than USB. So you can hook up two 2626\'s together and have 52 separate inputs of audio! It also comes with some I/O; MIDI, S/PDIF & Wordclock. Also what could be better, when its compatible with the industry standard DAW; Pro Tools!

Things you must remember about the Profire is that, turn it on FIRST before your computer and monitors, otherwise it could harm the Profire. There really isn\'t any bad things I can say about the Profire. It is really an amazing piece of gear, and would be very good for any studio.

Profire 2626

Great product. After lot of research I choses the profire 2626.
Totaly satisfy. I had a line 6 KB37 which was ok but rubbish to record bass. Pre amp are so much better on the profire, Pro tools compatible ... Can\'t get better for the money. I diddn\'t check if it was in stock( my fault) and took 4 weeks for it to arrive. Good thing was:they always replyed to my e-mails when I was chasing my order. They dispatched it the same day it arrives and It was delivered in the channel island a couple of days after. Worth the wait.


Profire 2626

Very pleased with this. Very quick delivery. Easy to unpack and set up. Works flawlessly with Win XP and Windows 7 RC. Quality sound and flexible routing. Instant grown-up studio...
