Here's What Audient Say About the Sono
British audio company Audient has teamed up with leading cab simulation pioneers, two notes audio engineering to present Sono, the ultimate audio interface for guitarists.
Combining Audient’s award-winning analogue and digital conversion recording technology with the world’s best speaker-cab simulation from two notes, Sono is home to the ultimate valve guitar preamp. Featuring an on board 12AX7 analogue valve and 3-band Tone control alongside two notes Torpedo power amp modelling and cab simulation, Sono provides countless tonal options for guitarists, whether they’re recording, practising or gigging.
“With two notes, the creative possibilities are endless and you can really start dialling in the tones your hear in your head,” says marketing manager, Andy Allen. “Choose from a wide range of guitar and bass cab models based on classics such as the Marshall 4x12, Fender 2x12 or Ampeg Fridge, with more tones downloadable from Torpedo Remote if needed. You can even customise everything from the room type, microphone model and placement too, and once you’re happy with your sound, you can store your favourite presets on board Sono and play them in standalone mode at any time - without the need for a computer.”
Minimum latency, maximum creativity
With near zero latency, Sono doesn’t get in the way of creativity. The Two Notes cab simulation software runs via an onboard DSP, meaning no extra computer power required and no interruption to your workflow. Monitor mix allows blending between the guitar input signal and DAW playback, ensuring delay-free recording, playback and monitoring, enabling the artist to stay in the creative zone with none of the latency problems you get when tracking with software.
In addition, Audient encourages Sono users to integrate their existing pedalboard. Andy explains, “Plug in your favourite distortion, reverb and delay pedals directly into Sono’s D.I, dial up a tone and instantly start recording or jamming without the need to mic up and play through a noisy amp (or annoy your neighbours).
“However, if you do want to record in the more traditional sense, Sono will always record a clean D.I signal, so you can capture your performances as creativity strikes and reamp through your favourite hardware amps later without the need to buy a dedicated re-amp box,” says Andy.
Guillaume Pille, two notes owner, has been a fan of Audient for some time. “Audient interfaces have long been in our list of benchmark products used to try out our plugins and hardware units,” he says. “Today, the whole two notes team is very excited to present what we think is the perfect interface, not only for the guitarist and bassist, but also for any musician who wants to bring colour into his recordings.”
Alongside the more guitar-centric features, Sono is a powerful interface in its own right, with two Audient console mic pres for studio quality recordings, expandability up to 10 inputs via ADAT for recording drums, class leading converters as well as the unique ‘to valve’ feature. “Try routing vocal microphones or synths through the classic valve preamp, analogue EQ and two notes processing and start creating crazy new sounds or simply add that classic analogue warmth to your recordings,” adds Andy.
“Sono is all about developing creativity and providing an easy-to-use gateway into the world of professional audio recording. It really is a fun tool for guitarists and engineers alike. With Sono anything is possible.”
