A Powerful Guitar Front End JFET mojo. PURE clarity. Pedal builders and recording engineers have long known the punch and harmonic sweetness running a JFET preamp into an amp can impart. If you’re looking to add some analog mojo to your digital amps and stomps, the AXE I/O’s JFET input stage can help. On the other hand, if you’re looking for maximum clarity and headroom, AXE I/O’s switchable PURE circuitry nets you accuracy and clarity with 117dB of dynamic range.

For active and passive pickups Whether you play vintage singles or modern active humbuckers, the AXE I/O yields the best results for every guitar in your collection. Variable Z-Tone impedance One of the AXE I/O’s defining features is its Z-Tone variable impedance. This control allows you to shape the tone of your guitar to best suit every amp and stomp model in your virtual amp collection.

Comprehensive Recording Solution Class A mic preamps A pair of Class A mic preamps equips the AXE I/O for full-fledged song production. Onboard +48-volt phantom power readies these preamps for today’s condenser mics. Transparent digital conversion The challenge in guitar modeling is accurately capturing the instrument’s nuance and dynamics on the way in. The AXE I/O’s onboard 24-bit/192kHz are more than capable of translating the attack, definition, and frequency response of your guitar or bass into the digital environment. Low-jitter clocking Likewise, the AXE I/O’s accurate clocking keeps your performances free from artifacts for cleaner tracking and tighter mixes. High-current headphone amp A reference-grade headphone output in the AXE I/O is your ticket to mix translation and more enjoyable practice sessions.
