Record guitar and vocals on your computer—complete with effects.

The M-Audio Fast Track USB Computer Recording Interface is an easy way to record your guitar with professional results. Just connect Fast Track to the USB port of your computer and you're ready to rock. It comes bundled with Ableton Live Lite intuitive audio recording and MIDI sequencing to help get you started.

Fast Track USB has a switchable (instrument/line) 1/4" input for instruments like guitar, bass, and keyboards, plus an XLR microphone input for recording vocals or other acoustic sounds.

The included GT Player Express software gives you killer effects and virtual stomp boxes so you don't need any other gear to sound great. GT Player Express also plays standard audio file formats like AAC, MP3, and WAV that let you learn and jam along with your favorite music at variable speeds.

Ableton Live Lite
Ableton Live Lite delivers much of the functionality of Ableton Live—the revolutionary, multi-award winning music production solution that allows you to spontaneously compose, record, remix, improvise, and edit your musical ideas in a seamless audio/MIDI environment. Live brings your acoustic, electronic, and virtual instruments—as well as your digital audio recordings and MIDI sequences—together in a single interface with unparalleled ease of use.

Ableton Live Lite 7 sports up to eight tracks, more effect instances, an enhanced audio engine, 64-bit mix summing, multiple time signatures, new and improved devices, side-chaining, refined MIDI timing and more.

Live's Session View acts as a musical sketch and launch pad, encouraging you to try out new ideas and improvise freely. Each cell in the Session View grid can hold a loop, recording, MIDI file, complete song or any other musical element. These ideas can be recorded on the fly or dragged in from the Browser, combined and played in any order you wish.

The Arrangement View offers a timeline-based approach for traditional recording, MIDI sequencing, arranging, editing, and other musical production tasks. And when you improvise in the Session View, all of your actions can be recorded into the Arrangement View, where they can be edited and perfected whenever you like.

Works great!

By S. C.

from Nutley, NJ

This was my intro to computer recording. It has lots of features in a small package. No complaints about reliability, sound quality or anything. The mic preamp sounds very good and the guitar input is a great feature too. I will be upgrading but definitely buying another M-audio product.

Horrible.

By Ian-.Smki

from Virginia

Latency is horrible. Only good for single tracking adn the mic pre amps are horrible too. I plugged in a shure SM58 and it sounded like a broken Nady mic.
