Line 6 has introduced the new Sonic Port VX mobile audio interface, equipped with built-in studio-grade condenser microphones, quality mic preamps, and compatibility with iOS, Mac and PC.
The three built-in mics and preamps—a stereo matched pair and a front-facing mono mic—offer exceptional gain range and clarity. Vocals, acoustic instruments, pianos, horn sections and more can be recorded in mono or stereo to create and complete multi-track songs.
The guitar/bass input offers 120 dB of dynamic range to enhance both tone and dynamics, and a stereo line input lets users record keys, drum machines, DJ mixers and other sources. 1/4-inch stereo outputs make it easy to connect studio monitors.
Sonic Port VX provides seamless tri-platform compatibility—users can record using an iOS device, Mac or PC. A Lightning cable connection enables iOS users to record along with Mobile POD, GarageBand, and other Core Audio music apps.
Sonic Port VX can also serve as a mobile guitar interface—the free Mobile POD app offers over 10,000 presets, 32 amps, 16 stompboxes and rack effects, and 16 speaker cabinets. The user interface makes it easy for guitarists to tweak and save custom tones, and even play along with their iTunes library.
“With Sonic Port VX, we’ve expanded the Sonic Port family to allow musicians to develop ideas and record complete multi-track songs however, whenever and wherever they want,” says Max Gutnik, VP of products and marketing at Line 6. “The Sonic Port family represents the next generation of professional-quality mobile recording, and Sonic Port VX is the only audio interface that puts the power of a studio into the hands of songwriters on the go.”
Sonic Port VX is available now.
