The updated MicroBook IIc is now USB audio class compliant, which means that you can connect it to an Apple iPad with a standard Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (purchased separately) for studio-grade audio I/O for your iPad music and audio apps. If you are serious about the music you make with your iPad and laptop, the MicroBook IIc offers the perfect combination of excellent analog audio quality, studio-grade connectivity and rugged, ultra-portable design and construction.

The MicroBook IIc provides simultaneous inputs for a microphone, a guitar, and a keyboard or other stereo line level device. The mic preamp delivers neutral colouration and pristine sound, with -20 dB pad and 48V phantom power for condenser mics. Programmable outputs provide flexible monitoring options.

Mixing and effects
The MicroBook IIc is also an 8-bus digital mixer that lets you mix live inputs with each other - with or without host software tracks. With CueMix FX running on your computer, you can create separate mixes of live audio from your mic, guitar, and keyboard, and send each mix to separate outputs (main out, line out, and phones out) or any combination of all three.

Wall power and bus power
When connected to an iPad, the MicroBook IIc is powered by a standard Micro-B-to-Type-A USB cable with attached AC power adapter (both included). This helps preserve maximum battery life for the iPad. When connected to a Mac or PC, the MicroBook IIc is bus-powered by the USB connection to the computer. No separate power connection is necessary.

XLR mic input
Go ahead: connect your $5,000 mic. This preamp is worthy of the best you've got.

Hi-Z guitar in
Proper impedance delivers totally authentic guitar tones that feel right as you play.

Line in
Add a keyboard or other line level input on balanced connectors for pristine sound.

Multiple independent outputs
Feed independent audio to each output pair: main out, line out, and phones.

Balanced line level connectors
Protect your mix from AC hum and RF noise with balanced connections.

Digitally controlled analog trim
You get the best of both worlds: analog sound quality with digital precision.

Ultra-compact size
The MicroBook IIc is an impressively small 5.5 by 3.6 by 1.25 inches, which means that it slides easily into your backpack - or a large pocket. It also sits nicely next to your laptop or desktop computer.
