Propellerhead Balance Interface With Reason Esntl.
Balance with Reason Essentials is an integrated music recording environment with everything you need to create anything you want.
2-in 2-out audio interface. Sounds as good as it looks. Works as great as it feels. We've taken care of all the tedious stuff - calibration, setup, the works. You can concentrate on having fun instead: making music. With two channels of pristine audio recording, and with inputs for all your gear, your instruments are always connected and you are always ready to record. Balance is a two-in by two-out interface for Mac and Windows. Fully USB2 powered with separate volume controls for monitors and headphones, it contains 8 input connections to keep all instruments, mics and devices connected and ready to record with the press of a button.
The included Reason Essentials software packs in all the recording, editing, effects, instruments, and mixing tools you need to sound great. With its generous sound bank and familiar creative flow, it's the software that lets you focus on the music and finish that song.
Balance is perfectly integrated with Reason 6 and the included Reason Essentials. With Clip Safe you'll never lose a good take to distortion again. Recording Meter lets you tune your guitar and set the levels from across the room. Use it with Propellerhead software, other pro audio apps, or even iTunes - Balance works with everything.
All the inputs you'll ever need. And then some.
On the back of Balance you'll find inputs for all your gear: two microphone preamps with phantom power, high impedance guitar and bass inputs with pads, and four line inputs.
Hardware input source selection
With Balance your instruments are always connected and you are always ready to record. Use the buttons on the front panel to select the active inputs. We've put all the controls at your fingertips.
Clip Safe is a magical lifeline for distorted takes - a red-eye tool for recorded audio. Clip Safe records your take on two channels, one at a lower volume. If your recording clips, it lets you substitute it for the other one. Don't ask us how it works, it just does.
Just a button-tap away, Reason Essentials' Recording Meter lets you tune your guitar and set the levels from across the room.
