Boasting a full range of features the Hybrid OPAL22 pretty much covers exactly what is needed in a small production studio setup or for a laptop producer who is on the move all the time.
It is a 2 in / 2 out sound card which means you can connect directly to powered studio monitors via stereo out jacks. You can also connect to input devices; this can be microphones and the Hybrid OPAL22 sports dual inputs with phantom power or you can connect line instruments too such a synthesizers, keyboard instruments etc.
USB connectivity via ASIO drivers assures one of low latency performance within your DAW and the Hybrid OPAL22 also sports conventional MIDI IN/OUT and AKM AK5358 converters for analog to digital conversion with up to 24bit 96kHz resolution for recording.
In a nutshell this new Hybrid audio interface competes with any other similarly priced sound card on spec and performance.
