Resident Audio Premiers T4 Four Channel Thunderbolt Audio Interface

Resident Audio has premiered the T4, a four-channel Thunderbolt audio interface, which requires no external power. It adds four channels of I/O to Thunderbolt-equipped Mac and most Windows computers, with support for high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz audio and low latency. Developed by Intel Labs in collaboration with Apple, Thunderbolt is the most advanced input/output (I/O) protocol available today. Twice as fast as USB 3.0, twenty times faster than USB 2.0 and twelve times faster than Firewire 800.

The lightweight and portable T4 comes with all required software drivers and innovative features such as an auto-detecting Multichannel Output Mode and Smart Monitoring, which automatically switches between stereo and mono depending upon input configuration. Four combo XLR / 1/4″ input jacks allow you to plug in microphones, instruments and line-level devices— with phantom power for all inputs—and there are four balanced TRS outputs for connection to speakers and external mixers. MIDI connectors enable the T4 to be used as a MIDI interface, and there are dual headphone outputs. Gain controls with three-color wraparound LEDs allow you to quickly set levels, even in low-light onstage environments. A “Big Knob” master volume control plus custom designed analog preamps (the T4 has eight of them—two for each channel) and high-power A/D/A converters round out the feature set.
