Device supports 24/96 audio, four inputs, phantom power
Resident Audio, a new company dedicated to designing and creating audio tools, has introduced the T4, the first multi-channel Thunderbolt audio interface which requires no external power. The T4 supports 24-bit/96kHz audio with near-zero latency for virtually instantaneous recording and playback.
The unit comes with all required software drivers, and offers a number of features such as a "Big Knob" master output control, an Input Mix control for blending live signal with computer playback, and Smart Monitoring, which automatically switches between stereo and mono depending upon input configuration.
Four combo XLR / TRS / TS inputs are provided for the connection of microphones, instruments and line-level devices. In addition, there are four balanced TRS outputs and both main and secondary headphone outputs. Phantom power is available for all inputs, and tactile gain controls with three-color wraparound LEDs allow optimum levels to be set quickly, even in low-light onstage environments.
The T4 will be available in the next few weeks, and retails for $500.
