Novation has announced Audiohub 2x4, a combined audio interface and USB hub designed for electronic music production. Pricing and release date have not yet been announced.
Audiohub 2x4 provides a low latency stereo input, four high quality audio outputs and a loud headphone output, all in a compact and tough aluminium case with 96kHz, 24-bit 'Focusrite Sound Inside'. Its integrated USB hub powers up to three USB devices simultaneously, meaning a single power supply can power an entire setup, and connect everything to a computer (or even an iPad with a Camera Connection Kit).
