Impact TwinImpact Twin is a brand new, state of the art audio interface that features ground-breaking technology to ensure that the music you record sounds as good on the inside of your computer as it does on the outside. How?

Well, Impact Twin’s two mic pre’s utilize our Impact III™ Technology which itself features three stages of top level processing. You get a high quality and very flexible mic amp, superior 24/192 HD Conversion, plus a set of recording Channel Tools that lets you shape and optimize your sound making it the perfect recording. With each of these stages carefully combined behind Impact Twin’s rugged and cool looking exterior, you have a ‘take anywhere’ device that offers the ultimate in recording quality.

Let’s look in more detail at those all-important stages.

The Impact III Mic Amp makes the best of any microphone. So whether you record with the finest vintage tube mics, the most demanding low-budget condensers, or even a handheld dynamic, Impact Twin has been designed from the ground up to maximize the signal you record into your DAW. And with the two Impact III mic amps, Impact Twin gives you maximum flexibility. Whether recording instrument, line or mic, with or without phantom power, Impact Twin works the way you need it to.

However, no matter how good your mic amps, if your signal path doesn’t then lead on to the best converters then you may as well pack up and go home. Impact Twin’s 24/192 HD Convertors let you select your conversion rate – all the way from 44.1kHz right up to High Definition 192kHz for the ultimate in pristine audio capture, maintaining the essential transients of your sound.

For years we’ve been innovating in the world of signal enhancement, so Impact Twin includes essential recording Channel Tools that go even further to optimize your sound with onboard EQ, Compressor and De-esser that quickly, simply and invisibly tame and enhance those signals – no matter what you’re recording.

Price Matching

Dolphin Music brings you the best music gear at the best price. We are committed to superior customer service and have extensive product knowledge. However, in today’s market we may not always be aware of all the price fluctuations of the products we sell. So, we offer competitive price matching.

Please fill in the following form to request a price match.

What prices we will match?

We will compare prices for new, direct from manufacturer items, excluding any add-ons, options, or other special features which may affect price.

The item must be new and must be the exact same make and model (ie, the same size, version, etc.).

Since our postage charges are lower than most of the shops, the comparison price must be a "delivered cost" to the consumer.

If we are unable to verify the previous condition, we will notify you that we require additional information to verify the Price Match request. Our goal is to make this policy simple and hassle-free. We are committed to responding to your requests quickly.

The price you have found must be the Internet Retailer's regular, advertised price for a current and available item. The price you found cannot be a closeout, discontinued, blemished, year-end, inventory reduction, or any other type of advertised sale price.

Price Matching requests may not be combined with any other promotional discounts, specials or other price incentives.

Prices and price sources you have found which do not meet the above criteria or in which incomplete or inaccurate information is provided to us, will not be approved for our Price Match.
