Watch: Recording with Avid Fast Track Duo and Pro Tools Express

Avid Fast Track Duo, a complete recording solution.
We tried out Avid's new Fast Track Duo audio interface in our studio with Zak Ford from the Gear4music Purchasing Department.

A complete audio solution, Fast Track Duo comes with Pro Tools Express, letting you experience the same workflow as professional standard Pro Tools, including over 25 plugins and 3 virtual instruments.

Zak specialises in purchasing guitars and uses the Dreadnought Electro Acoustic Guitar by Gear4music. Awarded 4/5 from Music Radar, this guitar includes a pickup and preamp with 4 band EQ and phase reverse.

Playing his song 'Heartbreakers', from the Zak Ford EP, Zak uses the sE Electronics Magneto Condenser Microphone which delivers a high-quality performance at an entry-level price.

The Fast Track Duo offers two-track simultaneous recording, so Zak could lay the track down in just one take. "It was so easy to set up" said Zak, "All I had to do was plug in and start playing".

Including an iLok worth £37.95, plus USB and iOS cables, the Fast Track Duo gives you everything you need to start composing and recording on your Mac, PC or iPad.

Buy the Fast Track Duo before June 14th 2013 and register with Avid by June 28 to receive four free plugins, worth £956 in the Avid online store.
