SPARTAN A 2进2出 USB音频接口

SPARTAN A是一款2进2出USB音频接口,可兼容Mac和Windows系统。

With its vast 110dBA dynamic range and precisely designed analogue circuitry, SPARTAN A will bring perfection to your work, especially for audio editing and mixing based on virtual instruments.

Independent volume controls for both speakers and headphones will provide the most flexible monitoring environment you ever experienced. The low latency device driver for Windows guarantees stable operation, and includes our innovative CAPTURE PROBE technology which allows you to freely route and mix every audio signal from both ASIO and WDM applications as logical inputs.

Input/Output Level Indicators

See what you’re listening

With its light level indicators, you can intuitively adjust input levels. Starting at -30dBFS, green light shows up and its brightness harmonizes with the level of incoming signal. When the signal reaches -1dBFS, it turns into red light as a warning of clipping. Output lights indicate the levels of speakers and headphone separately. In addition to your convenience, it will offer eye-pleasing experience.

Balanced Output, High-Quality Headphone Amps and Separate Volume Controls

The most flexible monitoring environment

You may once have experienced a situation when you want to swiftly switch between your headphone and speakers while monitoring. SPARTAN A provides separate hardware volume controls for both speakers and headphone, therefore you can adjust each output level quickly and easily. On top of that, the Built-in Direct Monitor Function will offer you even more flexibility.

Connect your powered speakers with SPARTAN A’s fully balanced line output, headphones with high-quality preamps. The professional-grade +14 dBU balanced output maintains excellent frequency response and low noise level within wide frequency range. The two headphone outputs are capable of yielding maximum +13dBu output even through low impedance headphones, leaving no single detail unnoticed.

110dBA Dynamic Range

Fine-tune your reverb

The wide dynamic range is required if you want to check minute details of reverb in your mixing process. SPARTAN A is equipped with the low noise analogue circuitry to make it possible. 110dBA dynamic range will offer you the best recording/monitoring experience.

Low-Noise Mic Preamp & JFET High Impedance Preamp

Analogue is where everything starts

Engineers of AUDIOPROBE know what you need when you are recording at home. We tested with various types of equipment to build a perfect analog frontend. Our mic preamps and instruments input are tailored to your practical use.

Standard MIDI I/O

It still matters

Low-latency standard MIDI I/O is also provided to make SPARTAN A itself connects with various MIDI instruments.

Asynchronous USB Audio Class 2.0

All digital technology begins with perfect analog technology

In digital audio systems, clock jitter is a major cause of sound distortion. When using the old USB Full-speed (1.1) connection standard, various jitters result in significant sound distortion when recording and playing back the original audio, even though it might be high quality ADC/DAC. This is because the audio clock system has a significant amount of noise and is dependent on a computer clock that is not accurate. To solve the effects of these kinds of jitters, the Audioprobe engineers focused on solving two major technical problems.

First, SPARTAN A connects to the computer through an asynchronous method with the USB Audio Class 2.0 standard. This allows SPARTAN CUE to remain unaffected by the computer and use a completely independent audio clock to operate the ADC/DAC, enabling it to perform more accurate sampling.

Second, we focused on designing a stable power supply to reduce the clock errors that occur inside SPARTAN A. Supported by a highly reliable power supply, the audio sample clock is capable of up to 512 times the sampling rate while operating with minimal errors.

A digital signal made up of bits of data can be converted to an analog signal without jitter distortions and vice versa. This allows you to experience clear and realistic audio.


Lossless routing of sound being played

CAPTURE PROBE? is a fantastic tool used to capture sound played on a Windows System, enabling you to easy record sound from a video or a movie soundtrack.

Select the CAPTURE PROBE? button and mix the sound that is being played to SPARTAN CUE’s logical input. Depending on the running application’s output driver type, they can be selected altogether or individually to be recorded.
