That Focusrite Sound
iTrack Dock, like other acclaimed Focusrite interfaces, couples superb analogue audio circuitry with the highest precision digital conversion expertise, to deliver the best of all possible worlds for today’s iPad-based hit-makers, in both personal studios and world-class facilities across the globe.
Did you know that... The legendary Focusrite sound embodied in all of Focusrite's products goes all the way back to 1985, when Rupert Neve was commissioned to build "no compromise" modules for the consoles in Air Studios? Since then, countless hit records have been tracked and mixed through Focusrite gear, which to this day follows the same design philosophy:
Sound is everything.
Simple, Sleek Setup
Getting started is easy. Whichever Lightning iPad you have, just slide the connector on the iTrack Dock up or down to match the position of your iPad's socket and plug in. The iPad sits perfectly in the iTrack Dock, at just the right angle, in line with and alongside the Dock's raked control surface.
Hooking up your gear is easy too. Simply plug in your microphones and guitars via XLR and Jack cables, while line inputs and monitor outputs to your speakers are carried over TRS cables. A standard USB cable connects your MIDI controller to the iTrack Dock, giving you instant "hands on" control of any assignable MIDI parameters.

Legendary Focusrite mic preamps
Two Focusrite mic pres, as featured in the Scarlett range of USB audio interfaces, include 48V Phantom power for use with condenser microphones. iTrack Dock also features Focusrite’s unique “gain halos” – a ring of light around the input gain control – to easily set the input gain: green for healthy signal, red if it’s too hot.
Plug your guitar into your favourite apps
iTrack Dock provides a guitar input with plenty of clean, clear headroom to capture both quiet and loud guitars with stunning clarity.
Connect and power a MIDI controller
USB MIDI port for class compliant MIDI controller connectivity (MIDI + power) - perfect for connecting a controller like the Novation Launchkey or Launchkey Mini.
