If the answer is yes then Audient has the ideal product for you – The Audient SONO!
SONO is the ultimate audio interface made specifically for guitarists. The idea behind SONO is to provide the guitarist with the perfect solution to record your guitar at home, retain all the tone you get from an amp and not upset the neighbours.
It features a Valve Preamp guitar input stage, a 3 band analogue EQ section, and a tube drive knob. This all feeds Two Notes Torpedo Power Amp and Cabinet Modelling software. SONO Features ZERO latency monitoring when used with any DAW, whether it’s the supplied Cubase recording software or Logic, Pro-Tools or Ableton. Once you dial up a sound in the Torpedo software you can save this to one of the 3 preset switches on the SONO hardware – this means you don’t have to turn on your computer every time you just want to rock out – Bonus!
Why would you choose a SONO over any of the other Audio Interfaces on the market?
Sure this interface is geared at the guitarist for the above-mentioned features but don’t think of it like that. Think of SONO as the ultimate recording package. It has the same legendary Preamps that are found on Audients Large format Analogue Recording console – the ASP8024 – This alone is worth the admission price, but it doesn’t stop there. You get a tube that can be kicked into one of those preamps to warm up your vocals. The headphone amp is clear and loud – just what you want for monitoring. SONO has ZERO Latency Monitoring so you won’t get any delay when recording. It has High-Performance AKM AD/DA Converters for a super transparent sound. Throw all this on top of the Guitar specific features and this is an interface that kicks serious butt!
