The M-Track 2X2M comes with a USB-C to USB-C cable as well as a USB-C to USB-A cable to ensure that it can connect to all current and future available USB connections available.
USB-C is the hot, new industry standard connector and cable used for connectivity and power. For more information on USB-C connections, check out this great article.
There is no difference in the audio quality between the USB-A, B, or C connections. The M-Audio M-Track 2X2M simply uses the USB-C connection because it is becoming the industry standard USB connection type.
The M-Track 2X2M is USB hub-powered meaning that it is powered simply by connecting it to your computer with the included USB cable. No additional power connections are necessary.
For a Windows operating system, the M-Track 2X2M requires the installation of drivers to ensure the best possible performance. For Mac operating systems, the M-Track 2X2 is class-compliant and does not require a driver installation.
You can obtain the Windows drivers by visiting this link and choosing the M-Track 2X2, or you can download the driver directly from the following link:
The M-Track 2X2M supports up to 24-bit and 192kHz studio quality sample rates to capture every nuance and subtlety of your performance.
First, ensure that the USB / DIRECT knob is not all the way to one side or the other. In most cases, you will want a blend of direct sound and audio from your computer.
Next, in your preferred Digital Audio Workstation, set the track that you are attempting to play/record into to channel 2. Most DAWs default to channel 1 and the instrument channel on the M-Track 2X2M is set to send on channel 2.
If you continue to have difficulty, reach out to M-Audio support for additional assistance.
The M-Track 2X2M weighs about 2 pounds and the dimensions are approximately 8" x 6" x 2.75" (L x W x H).
I connected to input 1 on the front and input 1 on the rear but I only hear the front input. Is this normal?
For both inputs 1 and 2, the priority is the front input. If connecting to both the front and rear inputs on the same channel, only the front input will pass through.
