Direct Monitoring of Audio Inputs Standalone without computer ?

edited May 2015 in Audio
When using the iCA4+ without a computer, if the inputs are routed to the outputs directly or through the analog mixer, is it still being processed by the DSP or is it pure analog no latency hardware monitoring ?


  • Yes, it still goes through our ADC to DAC. Latency through our system is fixed around 1.7 ms.

    Let me know if you have any other concerns,
  • Thanks, my plan is to replace my small analog mixer with the iCA4+ and run 2 hardware synths to it and then output to an amp. 1.7ms is quite reasonable !
  • We've had guitar players plug their Hi-Z straight into the preamp, route to the iPad for amp modeling, and back out the box for monitoring. They were very impressed with the speed of the interface - especially when you have audio and MIDI routing back and forth between computing devices similtaniously.

    It's a beast!
  • Can't wait to get mine :) Is the wait time long when ordered directly from you ? I ordered at the beginning of the week. My local dealer was actually more expensive than going through the website...
  • So you have already ordered using our website? Did you get shipping confirmation from us?

  • Got it - and have forwarded to my e-commerce team for resolution.
