A streamlined 1-in/3-out audio interface for recording and re-amping guitars.
The IK Multimedia AXE I/O ONE is a streamlined but professional 1-in/3-out audio interface and controller designed specifically with the needs of the recording guitarist in mind. It has three different circuit topologies to adapt to any type of guitar, pickup and style so you can always dial in the perfect tone from any instrument. AXE I/O ONE also offers a simple, streamlined re-amping setup in a single box, to save you time, money and energy and open unlimited sonic flexibility for all your guitar recordings. Plus, you can use the Amp out to experiment with different amp, stompbox and microphone settings to take total control of your recordings.
AXE I/O ONE sports IK’s exclusive Z-TONE impedance control, JFET input for warm, tube-like sound, dedicated Amp Out for practicing or reamping, pickup selector, external volume/wah pedal or switch controller inputs, and includes award-winning AmpliTube and TONEX software with access to thousands of presets, amp and pedal rig tones on ToneNET for a complete digital studio rig that sounds like a pro. Every electric and bass guitar is different and AXE I/O ONE’s Z-TONE input circuit allows you to dial in the perfect tone for recording by changing the impedance of the guitar input to go from a tighter/sharper tone to a thicker/bolder tone on the same instrument. The Class-A JFET input buffer adds the midrange focus, warmth and harmonic enhancement highly sought after by guitar players, while an Active/Passive pickup selector allows for precise input settings.
Take Control of Your Sound
Unique to AXE I/O family, the ONE also features external controller inputs to connect switches or volume pedals to control the included software hands-free, without ever having to stop playing. You can also use AXE I/O ONE’s MIDI input and output to connect floor controllers or iRig Stomp I/O to add even more real-time controls.
Real Amp Integration With Amp Out
The exclusive Amp Out allows players to connect directly to a guitar amplifier or a guitar rig for practicing using a hybrid setup of virtual and real guitar gear. Or it can be used for reamping, the technique of recording a dry guitar signal and using external gear for processing, or even to capture your own real rig and turn it into a plug-in using the included artificial intelligence software.
A Massive Bundle of Tones
With both AmpliTube 5 SE and TONEX SE included, you’ll have instant access to a huge library of thousands of gear models and presets to record and play right out of the box, and AXE I/O ONE works with any recording application. AmpliTube 5 SE includes 80 pieces of gear that cover a wide range of stomp and rack effects, amps, cabs, speakers, mics and rooms with complex series/parallel rig chains easily built by drag and drop to emulate any type of sound.
TONEX SE is the new and revolutionary AI Machine Modeling software that’s taking the world by storm, offering not only thousands of rigs that are indistinguishable from the real thing but also the possibility of modeling any real rig and turning it into a plug-in. You can model your amps, cabs or pedals including distortion, overdrive, EQ, fuzz, boost and more, and play them inside TONEX and AmpliTube. Both software applications include access to the ToneNET online service where there are now over 6,000 AmpliTube presets and 10,000 TONEX tone models to explore, produced and expanded daily by a thriving community of guitar and bass players.
Plug and Play Straight Away
AXE I/O ONE is USB-C bus powered and requires no external power supply. To start recording is as easy as plug and play. Just hit record right out of the box with the included easy-to-use AmpliTube 5 SE multitrack standalone application or, for more sophisticated composition, Ableton Live Lite software is included to take it to the next level. Everything is easy to set up and easy to use whenever inspiration strikes.
AXE I/O ONE’s MIDI input and output also allow you to connect keyboard controllers or any other MIDI controllers to play virtual instruments or control the included software with external MIDI gear or vice versa. Plus, AXE I/O ONE also works with the latest iPads for use with TONEX SE iOS (also included), the free AmpliTube CS iOS app and a huge variety of compatible apps.
High-quality Tracks, Anywhere
Great recordings require uncompromised quality and AXE I/O ONE delivers professional audio with sample rates up to 192kHz, 108dB dynamic range and 9Hz–45kHz frequency response. And for recording acoustic instruments and vocals via the XLR mic input, AXE I/O ONE features a PURE Class-A mic preamp with phantom power for ultra-transparent and clean recording, without any unwanted coloration, preserving the true sonic character of your vocal, acoustic guitar, piano or other instrument.
Super compact and easy to carry in a backpack or gig bag, AXE I/O ONE can also quickly become the ideal interface for recording on the go. AXE I/O ONE also includes a powerful, convenient Control Panel application to manage input and output and assign routing and controller inputs. In the INTERFACE tab, you can view the active input, enable phantom power and control the ground lift to dial in the least noise for your setup. Adjust output volume, select the sample rate and more. The CONTROLLER tab gives you control over the two controller inputs. Set behavior, MIDI channel, MIDI CC #, minimum and maximum values and more, to dial in the best settings for any application you want to control.
