AXE I/O ONE for Tracking Guitar

Production Expert: “Not all audio interfaces are made equal for guitarists!”

Production Expert reviews AXE I/O ONE, IK's new audio interface for recording guitar and bass. The author discusses all the tone-shaping circuitry and posts audio examples using different settings.

It's a worthwhile read if you're wondering how to get a better sound from your favorite axe. Even if you already have an audio interface, AXE I/O ONE fits right into your existing setup.

Here are some highlights and a link to the full review below:

While Hi-Z inputs are almost a standard feature on many desktop interfaces, it's hard to think of any other box in any price bracket that has so many options to massage guitar sounds on the way in, as well as in the box.

Its variable impedance Z-TONE circuit does make an audible difference to recorded pickup sounds. This is more stark than some of the subtleties available from some variable mic pres I've tried.

Knowing how discerning many guitarists are about their instruments, a tool like AXE I/O ONE could be one to check out for anyone who wants their front end to leave their instrument's sound as nature intended.
