Focusrite has announced its new flagship portable audio interface – Forte.

Focusrite ForteForte is a two-input, four-output USB 2.0 audio interface that works with Mac and PC. It has two remote control mic preamps, as used in Focusrite's RedNet range of professional audio interfaces, and uses 24-bit/192kHz AD/DA convertersion. The unit features a colour OLED (Organic LED) to indicate input and output signal levels, mic preamp gain and other useful information, with motion graphics. A single, smooth-feeling control knob operates in conjunction with touch-sensitive icon buttons to give you complete control over input and output levels, and DAW control parameters.

Key Features:

· Two-input/four-output USB 2.0 Mac/PC interface
· Mic preamp gain range: 0-75dB
· ADC (117dB A-weighted) and DAC (118dB A-weighted)
· Multi-function touch icons and scroll wheel with DAW control functions

A breakout cable with locking connector is used for microphone (XLR) and line/instrument (TRS) inputs, but balanced line and independent headphone outputs are provided on the unit itself, so the breakout cable is not required for playback-only applications. In addition, the mic and line-level inputs on the breakout cable are separate, meaning all inputs can be connected simultaneously, without having to re-patch when switching from one to the other.

An external power supply is included with the unit, however Forte can also operate as a USB powered interface.
