MicroBook IIc — Studio-grade audio interface for personal recording

Mixing and processing

A capable and compact mixer-to-go.

Mix live inputs with computer tracks with no latency.

Refine your sound with modeled analog EQ and compression

Three separate mixes

Dial up a separate mix for each output pair

The MicroBook IIc mixer takes signals from its four inputs, plus output from your computer, and mixes them to an output pair, such as the main outs. You control the volume of each input. Better yet, you can adjust input volumes differently for each output pair. In other words, each output pair can have its own unique mix. For example, you might create a balanced mix going to your PA via the main outs, but bring up the guitar for the mix going to your stage monitors via the line outs, so you can easily monitor your guitar sound. You get a separate mix for main out, line out, and phones.

CueMix FX Software

On-screen mixing and control

CueMix FX gives you comprehensive graphic control over your mix and other settings in the MicroBook IIc. CueMix FX can be operated side by side with any host audio software for Mac or Windows, and it can be controlled from the Mackie Control Universal Pro automated worksurface, or any HUI-compatible controller.

Multi-touch iPad control

Use an iPad to control your MicroBook IIc mix

It's the ultimate hands-on experience: use TouchOSC software (sold separately) with a custom-designed template for your MicroBook IIc and enjoy hands-on control of all mixing, EQ and compressor settings. Refining your mix has never been this fluid and intuitive.

Modeled analog EQ

Smooth and musical,
not harsh and sterile

British analog mixing consoles are renowned for their musical EQ profiles. The MicroBook IIc meticulously models these classic EQ curves to give you the very same, magical EQ settings found on these coveted desks. Seven separate filters are available on every input and output, including low-shelf and high-shelf, with intuitive graphic control of each EQ parameter.

Classic compression

No studio is complete without a compressor

The MicroBook IIc provides a classic compressor on each input and output, so you can apply compression liberally with the flexibility to decide if and when you want to "commit" to your mix. You can change the MicroBook's compression settings at any time while recording or listening.

USB routing to host

Send a complete mix back to your host software using driver-supplied returns

When mixing live inputs with computer tracks, sometimes you want to capture the result. The MicroBook IIc driver lets you do this in software, making it a snap: just record the MicroBook's 'return' bus back into your host software. Done! Say goodbye to jerry-rigged patching of cables from inputs to outputs...
