Features

The Echo 2 is a high-end personal mixer and a USB audio interface. With innovative touch panel controls and premium microphone preamps, the Echo 2 is perfect for live performance and for recording.

The Echo 2 features touch controls, built-in studio grade preamps, and a compact, portable design. You don't need a separate preamp or direct box - simply connect your instrument or microphone to the Echo 2, and mount the Echo 2 on your microphone stand using the included bracket. Complete control of your mix is right at your fingertips.

The Echo 2 is great for recording, mixing, mastering, or just listening to a playlist. The separate headphone and main outputs are also ideal for DJ software.

The Echo 2 is a versatile creative tool, with audio quality comparable to interfaces costing hundreds of dollars more.
