No matter whether you’re recording instruments and vocals or are communicating with your audience on Twitch, the Volt has you covered.
Capture the sound of a classic tube amp
Unlike conventional USB audio interfaces, the Volt includes a preamp that emulates the circuitry of a vintage tube amp. The Vintage Preamp Mode emulates the sound of the Universal Audio 610 tube preamp which was famously used to record many legendary singers including Ray Charles and Van Halen. This is ideal for recording both instruments and vocals, providing classic, analog-style sound for the modern era.

Get creating straight out of the box using the music software suite included with Volt. From a powerful digital audio workstation to virtual instruments and effect plugins, the suite has it all! Ableton Live Lite is a streamlined version of the award-winning DAW, providing all the tools you need to record, arrange, edit and publish music and audio.
In total, the interface comes complete with 10 pieces of unique software comprised of everything from guitar amp emulations to classic reverb units and virtual instruments for drums and bass.
