the E-MU Tracker Pre is a USB powered audio interface with 192kHz sampling. The frequency range is flat up to 90 kHz and the anti-aliasing filtering is pretty good. With high level signals exceeding 96 kHz (in the range 96 to 105 kHz) you can get aliased components in the range 96 to 87 kHz. Graphs will be shown soon on our website.
This interface has only analog I/O. At max gain the mic inputs accept levels up to 18mVpp (measured between pins 2 and 3 of the XLR input).

I have successfully tested the E-MU 0404 USB 2.0 Audio/MIDI Interface:
It's frequency response is flat up to 90 kHz. Unfortunately, it is not BUS-powered, which means that it requires an external power adapter.
The frequency response and anti-aliasing characteristics of such audio interfaces are primarily determined by the A/D converter chips in them. The above unit employs the AK5385A chip, whose pass-band filter characteristics (at fs=192 kHz) can be found at page 10 of the data sheet: .
