With iOS being multi-channel audio capable, it’s time for hardware manufacturers to step up and harness the 30 pin and Lightning ports, and to finally bring real stereo outputs for headphones and speakers. Griffin has always been active in the Apple peripheral market, and has made the DJ Connect — a small and eye-catching bus powered audio interface that means saying goodbye to the mono splitter cable.
NI has made its already tiny Traktor Audio 2 interface smaller, and at the same time iOS friendly. Mark Settle falls in love with this pocket rocket.
Unlike NI’s other releases, the revised Traktor Scratch A10 audio interface has been their best kept secret. Dan Morse takes a look.
The Electrix brand is reborn, and first off the starting blocks is a retro block of affordable audio interface goodness. The Ebox-44 USB is a simple box of tricks that just works.
