Luxurious metering


You always know your levels — at a glance

Track16 sets the bar high for detailed metering in such a compact interface. You get dedicated 7-segment main out meters, and configurable meters for all other analog inputs and outputs. Just press the METERS button to toggle between the blue and white labels. It’s easy to monitor your signal levels at a glance with Track16.

 

One-touch operation


Set your creative mind free

Simply press the button for the input or output you wish to control, and turn the knob.
It’s that simple. No fiddling with tiny displays. No guesswork. Just creative flow.

Backlit buttons


Designed for the studio and stage

Often, we are called upon to work in studio or stage environments where the lighting conditions are not optimal. Track16’s buttons are backlit with multi-color LEDs to facilitate operation just about anywhere. From the factory, the buttons glow amber (orange), except for the currently selected channel, which glows bright green. Or, you can choose from six other color schemes, in various combinations of green, red and amber.
