    Details

    The MOTU 828x brings the speed and bandwidth of Thunderbolt to MOTU's esteemed range of audio interfaces! Building on the tried and tested format of the 828 MK III, the new 828x brings all the quality and functionality but with a new connection format for the latest generation of Mac Pro, Macbook Pro, iMac and Macbook Air computers as well as USB 2.0 connection for non-Thunderbolt machines. The MOTU 828x offers a total of 28 inputs and 30 outouts, (8 analogue, 16 ADAT, twin headphones) plus timecode and wordclock IO. The onboard DSP runs MOTU's Cuemix FX software and enables the 828x to provide competely customizable, latency-free monitor mixes and even to function as a standalone digital mixer. The interface can be expanded upon by connecting additional MOTU FireWire audio interfaces or the 8pre microphone input expander.

    As an interface or standalone mixer, the 828mk3 hybrid provides twenty-eight separate inputs and thirty separate outputs, including dedicated main outputs and two front panel headphone outputs. These allow for connecting a multitude of studio gear, including microphones, guitars, synthesisers, keyboards, drum machines and even effects processors.

    All of the live inputs can be used to record, monitor, route and process, using the on-board CueMix FX digital mixer, with no latency and no processor strain on the computer. Hardware DSP-driven compression, EQ and reverb can be applied to every input and output, independent of the host computer. When recording from the microphone/guitar inputs, the 828mk3's signal overload protection provides an extra 12dB of headroom above zero with no digital clipping or harsh artifacts.
