Recording music on a computer is incredibly easy with the Mackie Spike, a complete digital recording solution from Mackie for your Mac or PC. The Spike system consists of the XD-2 24-bit 96kHz USB Audio/MIDI Interface featuring clean, high-headroom Mackie mic preamps and onboard SHARC® dynamics processing. Easy-to-use Tracktion 2 Music Production Software features unlimited track count and VST plug-in support, plus a full suite of Mackie mixing and mastering tools. Quite simply, Spike is the easiest open-ended system for computer music production.
The XD-2 is a two-channel, mic/line/instrument USB audio and MIDI interface with 24-bit, 96kHz resolution, high-quality internal effects for tracking and monitoring, and support for ASIO 2.0, WDM and OS X Core Audio. Although it occupies very little desktop real estate, the XD-2 offers great sound, channel dynamics and EQ for tracking and monitoring—and comes with all the software needed to start recording straight from the box. Since the XD-2 has its own onboard SHARC (Super Harvard ARChitecture) processor, low-latency monitoring and dynamics processing can be controlled via the intuitive on-screen graphic display.
Tracktion 2 is an intuitive audio recording and MIDI production software based around a refreshingly simple user interface, thoughtful features… and personality! Tracktion 2 integrates all the major features of a professional digital audio workstation into a simple working environment that gets all the technical stuff out of the way, allowing you to focus on making music. And with full VST plug-in support, you can use all your favorite plug-ins from other applications.
Spike gives you several ways to tap into high-quality effects. For starters, the XD-2's onboard DSP provides channel dynamics and EQ for tracking and mixdown, plus low-latency monitoring with zero drain on the host computer's CPU. The bundled Tracktion 2 software comes with a great assortment of powerful plug-ins like Reverb, Chorus, Delay, EQ, Compressor, and Phaser.
The Mackie Spike also includes a full suite of powerful Mackie mixing and mastering tools that can take your project from initial concept to finished CD. The included software bundle contains: Mackie's Final Mix CD Mastering Plug-in, the Mackie Dynamics Suite, and Maxim Digital Audio's (MDA) virtual instruments and plug-ins.
The Mackie Spike is the perfect solution for home and project studios, live performance, and any other situation where high quality 24-bit/96kHz digital recording is a must. The ultra-cool XD-2's slim and robust all-metal design takes up minimal desktop space and its unique "swivel-foot" collapses for transport in your laptop bag!
