24bit/48kHz, 2-in/2-out USB audio interface

DUO-CAPTURE, a small and convenient USB audio interface, is a dream for mobile recording. It is USB bus powered so no separate AC connection is required. Dedicated sliders give you quick control of volume; peak indicators give visual verification if signals overload. You can record and play back at rates up to 24-bit/48 kHz – exceeding CD quality. DUO-CAPTURE is also compatible with ASIO2.0 and Core Audio, which enable low latency audio input and playback.

Flexible I/O

DUO-CAPTURE is equipped to handle a wide variety of patching scenarios. Its LINE IN can be used to connect devices such as a mobile audio player or tablet computer. The MIC/GUITAR input lets you record directly to DAW software with a connected guitar or monaural dynamic microphone. A Phones jack and stereo miniature phone-type jack (which can be used as a LINE OUT) are provided as well.

Direct Monitoring

For latency-free monitoring, you can listen to the instrument's output directly without passing the audio signal through the computer. The Direct Monitor feature can be easily switched on/off.

SONAR X1 LE Bundle

Every DUO-CAPTURE package includes a complimentary copy of SONAR X1 LE software for PC, which is designed to work fluidly and seamlessly with the interface. Derived from Cakewalk’s award-winning SONAR X1 DAW software, the LE version gives you a powerful set of software tools for writing, recording, editing, and mixing your music.
