The A26 mobile audio interface for the Universal Serial Bus (USB) is the perfect portable Surround solution. It’s a multi-channel interface delivering 6 playback and 2 recording channels at professional 44.1/48 kHz, 24-bit audio quality.

High Quality Audio I/O
The A26 is the ideal USB audio solution for all audio applications on both MacOS and Windows platforms. It provides 6 analog outputs, 2 analog inputs and stereo S/PDIF digital I/O at 16 or 24 Bit resolution, more than meeting the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s audio professionals. Also included is a stereo headphone jack, with independent volume control, for quick and convenient monitoring of input and output signals.

Portable and Easy to Use
The stylish A26 is lightweight and compact, approximately the size of a videocassette. It is the perfect match for modern Windows notebook or Apple PowerBook computers equipped with a USB port. It is equally at home on studio-based desktop machines where high-quality audio I/O and ease of use are a priority. Installation is simple and trouble-free. The computer automatically recognizes the EMI 2I6 and power is supplied via the USB port, with no need for additional cabling or the need to open your computer’s casing.

Zero Latency Monitoring
The A26 features latency-free hardware monitoring. This allows the monitoring of audio recording channels with no audible delay. The stereo monitor signal can be routed to the analog, digital, or integrated headphone outputs.

Ideal for Virtual Instruments
Thanks to Emagic’s advanced Low Latency technology, software-based virtual instruments such as Emagic’s EVP88, EXS24, ES1 and VST2.0-compatible instruments can be played in real-time.

Surround Sound Solution
The A26 provides an affordable Surround mixing hardware solution via suitable audio software, such as Logic Audio Platinum. All Surround formats up to, and including 5.1, are supported. This makes the A26 the ideal companion for the production of Surround sound audio mixes for DVD or film distribution.
