Superb Guitar Recording Interface
Audient’s Sono is tailor-made for the recording guitarist, marrying a 12AX7-fueled preamp with a top-shelf power amp and cabinet simulation from Two Notes, along with a 3-band EQ and powerful re-amping capabilities. Sono isn’t just for guitarists, however — it’s also a feature-packed USB audio interface. Experience studio-quality recording thanks to a pair of Audient’s console-grade microphone preamps and class-leading AD/DA conversion. Benefit from low-latency monitoring and a crystal-clear headphone output. Beyond that, Sono is expandable via ADAT, so you can track entire bands without breaking a sweat. Sono features all-metal construction, so it’s built to last and ready to travel.
Authentic 12AX7 and Two Notes guitar recording interface
Crafting killer guitar tones is easy with Sono. It all starts with an authentic 12AX7 — the best-known preamp tube among guitarists. This tube generates everything from warm cleans to high-gain sizzle, and you can shape its sound to perfection with Sono’s 3-band EQ. After you get your preamp tone dialed in, use the built-in Two Notes Torpedo cabinet modeling to emulate the sound of a miked cabinet in a world-class studio. Customize microphone model, microphone placement, room type, and more. Choose between cabinets from Marshall, Fender, Ampeg, and more — all at your fingertips. And everything is baked directly into Sono. You can even store up to three presets onboard — no laptop required!
Musical-sounding mic pres with clean, punchy character
Packed with Audient’s famous Class A mic pres, Sono delivers the world-class sound you’d expect from one of their acclaimed consoles. These preamps exhibit a clean, punchy, and musical character that will breathe life into everything you record. You’ll capture the intricate details of every transient thanks to the wide bandwidth offered by these preamps. An optimized gain range of 0 to 60dB, transformerless input stage, and surprisingly low noise floor offer unparalleled detail and clarity.
Doubles as a high-quality re-amping box
Sono performs double duty as a high-quality re-amping box — without the need for a separate device. When you record, it captures your clean direct signal with sublime clarity. This allows you to preserve your ideas before your inspiration dies and re-amp your performance through your favorite amplifier later.
A feature-packed, top-shelf audio interface
Loaded with all the essential features, Sono is a top-shelf audio interface. You’ve already got two world-class mic preamps. But if you need more, you can easily expand to up to 10 total inputs via ADAT to track drums, multi-mic cabinets, or capture live performances. Latency is kept to a minimum with Sono. With it, you can create a monitor mix that allows you to blend between the input signal from your guitar and your DAW’s playback to record and monitor with next to zero latency. Class-leading AD/DA conversion and high-quality analog components deliver ultra-clean sound with 114dB of dynamic range.
