Offering a true analogue front end for both Mac and PC, Cello supports 384kHz recording and 125dB dynamic range, with a tactile control surface. Cello’s preamp design was developed in house and uses Adaptive Conversion technology – new ADC and DAC filtering options to enable users to tailor sample rate and performance to a recording source. At the heart of Cello’s appeal is JoeCo’s reliability, established through the behind the BlackBox range of professional multitrack recorders and BlueBox interface recorders.

Other Cello features include a built in talkback microphone and on-board monitor controls. At the front end, the two microphone inputs include discrete analogue mic preamps with 80dB gain, hi-pass filter, pad and phase reverse, with two dedicated preamp-only channels to ensure signal purity.

Inserts points are incorporated in both mic channels for outboard equipment. S/PDIF and 16 channels of Adat Lightpipe input are provided for use with external preamps. Mastering grade monitor outputs ensure the best results, while the unit can also accept external wordclock.

‘We are known as a provider of absolutely dependable professional audio solutions, and we believe that everyone deserves to benefit from that same quality,’ says JoeCo MD, Joe Bull. ‘Cello is designed and built in the UK to the same no compromises standard as every other product in our range - the highest specification features and the best audio quality available, all at a price you can afford.

‘Cello represents a step forward in every sense, and it has a touch of analogue style that’s hard to resist. We’re very proud to introduce what we believe is the best audio interface in this price range, bar none’.

Cello is expected to carry a suggested retail price of US$899.
