Designed specifically with the needs of the recording guitarist in mind, AXE I/O is a professional 2 in/5 out audio interface and controller, providing the best-in-class sound quality and powerful features aimed squarely at making your recording faster, easier and better than ever.
AXE I/O (opens in new tab) offers a fully discrete input circuit, with both PURE and JFET input stages, to go from transparent to tube-like with just a single switch and patent-pending Z-TONE® impedance-adapting circuit. Plus AXE I/O includes a dedicated Amp Out, so you can process your recording with real guitar amps and stomps without the need for external accessories.
The slimmed-down version, AXE I/O Solo (opens in new tab), provides the same great tone shaping, convenient features and premium sound in a compact, bus powered 2-in / 3-out format at a very competitive price.
When it comes to making music on the move with your smartphone or tablet, we've got you covered with our range of iRig accessories and apps for guitar and bass players.
The iRig 2 has become the industry standard for easy-to-use guitar recording interfaces. Or for those requiring additional capabilities or higher sound quality, there is now iRig HD 2, iRig Pro I/O or the 2-channel iRig Pro Duo I/O.
Recent additions to the range are our Z-TONE DI (opens in new tab) active box and Z-TONE Buffer Boost (opens in new tab) pedal (above), allowing you to precisely match your guitar signal with your recording equipment.
Both offer the Z-TONE advanced tone-shaping technology derived from AXE I/O as well as a unique active/passive pickup selector switch to ensure the perfect gain staging for any instrument; switchable PURE and JFET input circuits to adjust from pristine, transparent sound to added warmth and harmonic richness.
