The Tracktion Copper Reference, a high-end boutique 2 in / 2 out audio interface, and the first pro audio hardware developed by Tracktion.

Introducing the new Tracktion Copper Reference, a high-end boutique 2 in / 2 out audio interface, and the first pro audio hardware developed by Tracktion.

The Copper Reference (called “Cu” for short) is a no compromise, built to order, audio interface with an American Hot-Rod mentality! Featuring the finest in detailed, transparent audio, plus optional valve character, the Copper Reference is aimed squarely at musicians and engineers who want the best AD/DA Conversion that money can buy.

With such a huge selection of affordable audio interfaces already on the market, and not wishing to simply emulate what’s already out there, the Tracktion team took it upon themselves to design a ‘no expense spared’ device that’s completely unlike anything else currently available.

In order to deliver the ultimate in transparent audio, the Copper Reference has been designed with the finest circuitry components, with each device hand-made in Seattle, USA. Saturation can be added to the input signals thanks to the optional tube stage (designed by guitar amplifier specialist Michael Soldano), adding versatility to your recording setup and providing an extra option when you’re looking for that perfect sound.

The Copper Reference’s I/O section includes a choice of professional connections and the most popular audio formats, with a ‘future-proof’ USB-C type connection for interfacing with Mac, PC and Linux-based systems. Use the Cu as your main audio interface and make recordings of the finest quality, with the option to add character and warmth via the on-board valves. Or you can integrate the device into a larger setup, acting as a front-end for your monitoring system and passing the highest-quality audio to your speakers.
