Musik Messe 2007 has seen the launch of nio 2 | 4, Novation’s latest foray into the interface market which they say offers a flexible 2 In / 4 Out mobile interface solution designed with the modern music maker in mind.
Novation tell us that their Direct FX technology places a host of powerful FX at your fingertips. Direct FX technology’s ultra-low latency environment provides an unmatched freedom to create, allowing all of nio 2 | 4s effects to be used in real time. This same unique environment ensures rock solid and lightning fast performance.
nio 2 | 4’s multi-effects engine includes guitar amp simulations, filters, delay, chorus, phaser, flanger, distortion, EQ, Reverb, Tremelo, among others, many derived from the effect algorithms of Novation’s synth giants, past and present, most notably the Supernova II.
Novation believe that, with robust rock-solid hardware, flexible software and powerful FX, nio 2 | 4, is the ideal interface solution for home recording, live performing and DJ’ing and that, with two headphone outputs, it’s also an ideal solution for the classroom environment.
nio 2 | 4 provides a unique and truly flexible monitoring solution, with two dials close to hand and independent switching between three different monitor mixes. This, combined with four phono (RCA) outputs and flexible metering, say Novation, makes nio 2 | 4 the ideal solution for laptop DJs and live performers.
Two inputs are available for recording high quality audio into the DAW. Both an instrument jack and microphone XLR with phantom power are provided. As an alternative to these inputs, a pair of phono (RCA) inputs can be used to record a stereo signal, from a record deck, CD player or synthesizer for example.
Finally, nio 2 | 4 provides MIDI i/o and is also class compliant with both Mac and PC, connecting via USB and bus powering with each. In addition, the unit is class compliant with Mac OS X CoreAudio.

nio 2 | 4 is expected to ship Spring 2007 More information:
