The OLED display indicate microphone, line in, line out and headphone levels, gain structure and other functionality. The control knob accesses preamplifier and output functions (input, monitor, headphone, and control) plus controls DAW functions and acts as a remote control for music software. The Focusrite Forte audio interface's supplied breakout cable gives you two microphone XLR and two line / instrument TRS inputs. Balanced line and independent headphone outputs are provided on the Forte, so the breakout cable is not required for playback. A pair of TRS outputs let you run audio to your monitor setup for mixing and mastering. A front-mounted 1/8-inch headphone output for recording and silent mixing. An external power supply is included that gives the Focusrite Forte phantom power for condenser microphones. The included Forte Control software selects and sets low-latency monitoring, microphone preamp levels, and many other features. Focusrite also included their Midnight plug-in suite with models of the Focusrite ISA110 EQ and ISA130 compressor.
