Press Release: Audio AG, distributor of RME and ALVA, has globally started shipping of the ALVA Nanoface.
Sound quality, extraordinary features and ease of use, real analog hardware monitoring and low latency drivers for Windows and Mac OS X – all together in an awesome design housing for a very attractive price.
The Nanoface is the perfect solution for musicians or DJs, who need a complete recording studio not only at home, but also on the road and want to compose or mix music in quality they are accustomed to, or just want to listen in the best possible headphone quality. It only needs one USB 2.0/3.0 connection to transfer all audio and midi data in and out of the computer. The Nanoface works with the power provided by the computer supplied by the USB connector and does not need an external power supply.
6 audio inputs/outputs – more than enough for a small home studio, a DJ or surround setup. A MIDI input and two MIDI outputs form a perfect combination to connect a keyboard and external synthesizers or samplers.
Four analog inputs – two of them equipped with high-quality mic preamps with phantom power – allow the simultaneously recording of different sources at the same time, like a microphone, an electric guitar and a synthesizer. The Nanoface provides a Hi-Z instrument input – alternatively usable instead of the analog input 2. Optimal for spontaneous jam sessions with a notebook or as mobile recording station without the need for more equipment – live or with band rehearsals.
Four analog outputs with excellent technical specifications and an extraordinary audiophile sound provide a flexible setup for monitoring two stereo signals at the same time, e. g. with main speakers and headphones. The signal from output 1/2 can be routed to output 3/4 and can be individually adjusted.
The integrated digital I/O works in standard SPDIF format. This makes the Nanoface the perfect partner for a digital signal from a CD player, or an effect unit as a source for a surround receiver with digital optical input.
