Axe I/O is a professional 2 in/5 out audio interface - and controller - designed specifically with the needs of the recording guitarist in mind, providing best-in-class sound quality and powerful features aimed squarely at making your recordings faster, easier, and better than ever.

3 Different Circuits (Pure, JFET, Active)
AXE I/O's main channel offers 3 different circuit topologies – that means you have 3 different options to adapt to any type of guitar, pick-up, and style so you can always dial in the perfect tone from any instrument:

  • PURE offers a completely transparent and ultra-accurate instrument preamp that won't color your sound in any way.  

  • JFET is a Class A JFET input buffer to add subtle harmonic enhancement. A slight midrange focus adds warmth, giving you more tonal options from the same instrument.

  • ACTIVE pickups don't require a Hi-Z input, so this setting bypasses unnecessary gain stages to keep your signal path as direct, transparent, and clean as possible.

Customizable Impedance Control
AXE I/O's patent pending Z-TONE circuit lets you dial in impedance from 1 MOhm ("sharp") down to 2.2 kOhms ("bold") that interacts with your pick-ups. At the maximum impedance, you'll find your sound tighter, sharper, and more precise. Lighten the load and the sound becomes thicker and bolder.

116 Dynamic Range
When it comes to recording with microphones, AXE I/O offers two PURE mic preamps designed for transparent and clean recording. These mic pres offer a wide, flat frequency response: 5 Hz to 32 kHz, 0.5 dB (at 96 kHz) to avoid unwanted coloration and perfectly preserve the sonic character of your acoustic guitar, piano or other instrument, and maintain the character of whichever mics you connect. They offer 116 dB of dynamic range, for ultra-quiet sound perfect for recording even the most delicate instruments, but make it easy to also pull back and record the loudest amp stack.
