Propellerhead Balance Audio Interface - Includes Reason Essentials

Balance Audio Interface

Balance, a two-in by two-out audio interface for Mac and Windows, developed to cater for home and project studio producers and musicians. Fully USB 2 powered with separate volume controls for monitors and headphones, it contains 8 input connections to keep all instruments, mics and devices connected and ready to record with the press of a button—without software pop-ups or control panels. The included Reason Essentials packs in all the recording editing, effects, instruments and mixing tools needed to create great sounding tracks.

perfect integration with Reason and Reason Essentials

Balance’s class compliant drivers on the Mac and ASIO/WMD driver for Windows ensure hassle free installation and compatibility with all applications from iTunes to ProTools. Integration with Propellerhead products goes further. Hardware buttons on Balance bring up a large meter/tuner in Reason and can also enable “Clip Safe,” Propellerhead’s new recording technology that with one click heals clipped recorded audio. Musicians no longer have to worry about losing a great recording because gain levels were too high, and can stay focused on creating that goose bump evoking performance.

Balance Audio Interface Main Features

  • Clip Safe
    Clip Safe is a magical lifeline for distorted takes – a red-eye tool for recorded audio. Clip Safe records your take on two channels, one at a lower volume. If your recording clips, it lets you substitute it for the other one. Don't ask us how it works, it just does.
  • Recording Meter/Tuner
    Just a button-tap away, Reason Essentials' Recording Meter lets you tune your guitar and set the levels from across the room.
  • All the inputs you'll ever need. And then some.
    On the back of Balance you'll find inputs for all your gear: two microphone preamps with phantom power, high impedance guitar and bass inputs with pads, and four line inputs.
  • Hardware input source selection
    With Balance your instruments are always connected and you are always ready to record. Use the buttons on the front panel to select the active inputs. We've put all the controls at your fingertips.
  • Record Ready LEDs
    When a Reason Essentials audio channel is active and armed for recording, the Ready LEDs light up. Just hit record and play. The software will take care of the rest.
  • Large main output and headphone level controls
    On Balance the controls you reach for most often are the easiest to find.
  • Output muting and Direct Monitoring
    Hit the Mute button once to mute the main outs. Press and hold the button to activate direct monitoring of the input channels, for latency free recording or standalone use.
  • Powerful headphone amplifier
    No headphones are too tough for Balance's powerful headphone amp, ensuring earshattering volumes with even the quietest of headphones.
  • USB 2.0 powered
    Plug and play – Balance is powered through the USB port. On the Mac, no drivers are required. On Windows, the drivers come pre-installed with Reason Essentials.
  • Built-in Ignition Key
    Your license is stored on your interface. When you're at your friend's house, authorize the software through Internet Verification. Or bring Balance – it fits in your laptop bag.
  • Revolutionary technology that just works
    Bus-powered, low latency, Core Audio/ASIO- compatible interface with inputs for all your gear. No software control panel—all settings are on the front panel.
  • Everything you need — includes Reason Essentials. Just like its bigger brother, Reason Essentials puts making music in focus. From concept to completion, it has all the essential tools for turning good ideas into great songs.
  • Want Reason + Balance? Upgrade the included Reason Essentials with our Reason Upgrade to get the full version.
  • Already own Reason? Balance with Reason Essentials also upgrades previous versions of Reason to brand new Reason 6.

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.

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