MS-Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms are supported; no special driver or software is needed. The USB Matchbox II will operate with virtually any audio editing, recording, or broadcast automation software that supports a USB sound device at sample rates up to 48 kHz and 16 bit resolution.
The USB Matchbox II provides the quality and facilities that professional users require. Its dual-PLL asynchronous design permits simultaneous record and playback at different sample rates. Front panel trimmers allow precise adjustment of input and output levels. A high performance Headphone output is provided for critical monitoring. Rear panel connections include XLRs for balanced analog I/O and the AES/EBU digital output. The steel chassis provides effective RF shielding. All ICs that connect to the “outside world” are mounted in sockets.
