New M-Audio M-Track 2X2 C-Series Audio Interfaces (Video)

M-Audio M-Track

A couple of new entry-level USB audio interfaces have recently been released from M-Audio called the M-Track 2X2 C-Series.

They have one DI input for connecting guitars and other instruments, along with a combo input for mic/line, a direct monitor knob, a phantom power switch, headphone jack, and balanced outputs. Plus they sport a metal chassis and support up to 24-bit/192kHz audio recordings.

C-series stands for USB-C support but they also work with regular USB ports.

There are two versions of the M-Track 2X2, one without MIDI connections for $99 and one with MIDI for $149.

They come with a healthy dose of free software as well, including Cubase LE, the AIR Creative FX Collection with 20 plugin effects, and the AIR Strike, Xpand!2 and Mini Grand virtual instrument plugins.

The M-Track C-Series are nice-looking audio interfaces for the price, and have a good amount of features and software.

Of course it all comes down to the sound and performance, and how well the drivers work and how low the latency is.

If anyone reading this gets a chance to test out an M-Audio M-Track let us know what you think of it in the comments section.

Here’s a video below from Sweetwater showing the new M-Track audio interface. It’s quite a bit larger than the pictures indicate. In fact it’s downright huge compared to the Scarlett 2i2 and Audient iD4.

  1. Do you have any new information concerning latency of this card al low setting of buffer? (f.e.64 samples at 44.1 kHz)
    Thanks

    • Sorry, I have no personal knowledge of the latency of these units. I saw a couple early reviews and it didn’t look good in that department. I think it’s going to be hard for any of these lower end models to come anywhere close to the low latency on the 2nd gen Focusrite Scarletts, and the Scarletts can actually hold it together at high CPU with lots of plugins, which a lot of interfaces struggle with even if they can achieve low latency numbers. At this point I wouldn’t trade my 2nd gen 2i2 for anything but an RME because I use it every day and it’s been very reliable.

  2. I forgot:November issue of magazine Sound on Sound brought information (after measurement), that this sound card adds latency about 160 samples, which is not reported to DAW. I do not know whether it is under Win or Mac OS, since then M-audio released new driver for Windows, that should solve problems with Win 7/64bit
