M-Track 2X2M tech specs and questions

Hello forum i have some question about the new M-Track 2X2M, I can't find anywhere the tech specs and i cannot understand if the quality of this card is better than the M-Track Plus II or not.

The intentional use it 1 electric guitar + one microphone or 2 electric guitars and eventually a microphone.

The other question that i have is about the version without the midi ports. I see that on the m version there are 2 jack for instruments and 2 xlr for microphones, can i use all together or i have to choose from only 2 inputs?
and on the M-Track 2X2 i see that there is only 1 jack for instrument and one xlr for microphone, can i use it anyway with another instrument in the xlr port?

I hope you can understand my question,
thanks a lot.

  • Hi Sirio,

    Thanks for posting! I'll be happy to help!

    For both the M-Track 2x2 and M-Track 2x2M, you will only ever have two inputs at once, but the 2x2M provides more options.

    So, for example, with the M-Track 2x2 you have one Microphone/line level input (channel 1) and one instrument input (channel 2). An instrument (such as a guitar) should not be connected to the XLR input on channel 1, because this is intended for line level sources, such as a synthesizer or other keyboards.

    For the M-Track 2x2M, you can use either an instrument, mic or line level signal per channel but not all at once. So, for example, you could use an instrument for Channel 1 and a microphone for Channel 2 and record both simultaneously. But you could not connect both an instrument and microphone to channel 1. One will cancel out the other.

    So, with both units, just remember that you could record audio from up to two separate sources at once.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have more questions!

  • Thanks Corey.
    so it is an evolution of the M-Track Plus II ?
    another question, is it possible to use the soundcard without a computer?
    thanks

    • There will be (again) no syncing of interfaces via this hub aggregation?
    • No, that's not how syncing works. It's about sending and receiving a digital clock signal.

      Please refer to the article below if you have more questions about this:

  • Hello,

    I can't find how to switch sample rate.
    My DAW keeps saying my M-Audio 2x2M is set to 44100 kHz/32 bit.
    In ECHO Firewire 2 I have a software interface to change parameters.
    Drivers were installed Ok. Am I missing smth?

    Regards,
    Eugene

    • This tab was not hidden. I just could not imagine that sample rate switching was made in this quirky way.
      In my first (old) external sound card Echo Firewire 2 there is special utility for card configuration.
      I'm using Cakewalk Sonar Platinum DAW. But with Pro Tools, etc. it must be the same.
      I helped one of my friends in France to configure M-Track 2x2M on Windows 10 PC. We communicated via Skype (voice) and Teamviewer (computers link).
      Tomorrow I'll make screenshots with M-Track card configuration. Ok?

  • Hi,
    I promised Nicos to publish a screenshot with tabs for sample rate configuration.
    Here it is
    - right-click volume button and choose Playback devices
    - choose your device and hit Properties
    - find the tab for switching sample rates

  • Thank you Eugene!

    I've already tried this setting but with no luck. By the way, yesterday, a friend tried to setup this card to his Mac. It worked without a problem. Also, his audio interface, a Focusrite Solo worked to my PC without a problem!!! Additionally, I tried to setup the M-Audio to another windows PC which is already set up in a professional studio but with the same problem. It seems that this M-Audio's card cannot be set up on a windows PC but can be set up on a Mac.
