Resident Audio™ Debuts with World's First Bus-Powered 

Four-Channel Thunderbolt® Interface 

Resident Audio T4 provides four channels of near-zero latency audio

Resident Audio, a new company dedicated to designing and creating cutting-edge audio tools, is now shipping the new T4, the frst multichannel Thunderbolt® audio interface which requires no external power.

The portable T4 adds four channels of audio I/O to Thunderbolt-equipped Mac and select Windows computers, and can easily be integrated into any live performance rig or home studio. It comes with all required software drivers and offers a number of innovative features that break down the walls between artists’ vision and technology, such as a "Big Knob" master output control, an Input Mix control for blending live signal with computer playback, and Smart Monitoring, which automatically switches between stereo and mono depending upon input configuration.

The T4 supports 24-bit/96kHz audio with near-zero latency for virtually instantaneous recording and playback. It provides four combo XLR / TRS / TS inputs for the connection of microphones, instruments and line-level devices. In addition, there are four balanced TRS outputs and both main and secondary headphone outputs. Phantom power is available for all inputs, and tactile gain controls with three-color wraparound LEDs allow optimum levels to be set quickly even in low-light onstage environments. With its solid yet lightweight aluminum/acrylic construction, it’s great for the engineer on-the-go between studios or the touring music director.

"We may be a new enterprise but our team has a long history in the audio industry" said Resident Audio national sales manager Eric Battin. “The T4 brings a new level of portability and functionality to musicians, producers, and DJs everywhere. In live performance, it turns your laptop into an instrument with multiple outputs; in recording environments it opens up a myriad of possibilities.”

The T4 is robust, versatile, convenient, easy to use, and a key piece of any rig; it
ships in October 2014, with a MAP of $499.99.
