No-compromise professional studio quality and features at an amazing value!
With the AIR 192|8, you can create 24-bit/192kHz studio-quality recordings with an intuitive and easy-to-use audio interface. The AIR 192|8’s flexible inputs enable you to record up to 2 channels at once with its 2 dedicated XLR+¼” balanced combo inputs with switchable -10dB mic pad, and 2 all-new ¼” instrument inputs that have a specially designed gain and impedance stage to provide the most accurate representation of a guitar or bass plugged directly into the interface. The (2) ¼” and (4) RCA outputs with USB/Direct control, and Direct Mono/Stereo switch provide multiple output options for connecting to outboard gear, DJ mixers, or studio monitors. The headphone output with independent level, USB/Direct, and switchable 1/2 or 3/4 audio stream controls are perfect for discretely listening to a cue mix, sub mix, or main mix. MIDI In and Out connections are included for connecting synths, sequencers and external MIDI gear.

Two onboard Crystal preamps
The AIR 192|8's low-noise Crystal preamps build a solid foundation for any style recording. Clean and uncolored, M-Audio's Crystal preamps are a blank slate for your creative mix decisions down the road.

Latest-gen A/D converters
High headroom and low distortion are yours at every stage of the recording process, thanks to the AIR 192|8's current-gen A/D converters.

Direct inputs for guitar and bass
Twin front-mounted 1/4" instrument inputs streamline the M-Audio AIR 192|8 for guitar and bass players. The included Eleven Lite FX suite gives you several virtual amp, cab, and stomp options to choose from, so you can leave your amp and pedalboard behind.

MIDI I/O for outboard gear
Take advantage of the included AIR virtual instrument suites when you pair your MIDI-equipped controller with the M-Audio AIR 192|8. Two 5-pin MIDI to 1/8" adapters are included.

Rugged tabletop form factor
The M-Audio AIR 192|8's desk-friendly form factor puts all essential controls right at your fingertips, with an ergonomic tilt that improves visibility for desktop and remote use. A feature we at Sweetwater have enjoyed in all recent AIR interfaces is the large central volume knob, which is unmistakable and easy to access for setting desired monitoring levels. The all-metal chassis feels great underhand and is sure to hold up to location recording.

High-speed USB-C
USB-C protocol (also compatible with USB 2.0) gives the AIR 192|8 fast round-trip speeds — as low as 2.59ms — to minimize latency when you're tracking and monitoring.
