    Details

    The MOTU 8A is a premium grade audio interface with Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 and AVB connectivity. It offers 16 channels of IO (8x8) and features 8 live level inputs and outputsplus ADAT I/O which can also be configured as stereo optical S/PDIF formats.

    Powerful on board DSP allows for custom mixes - including effects - to be performed inside the unit itself, and this can be controlled either from the connected host computer or over a network via the built-in web app.

    Effectively a cut down version of MOTUs 16A interface, the 8A offers the same low latency, powerful DSP and ESS Sabre32 converters.

    AVB Audio Networking means that the 8A can form part of a much larger system. Easily scalable, AVB allows audio interfaces to be connected via ethernet cables (one interface directly, or via an AVB switch if higher IO counts are required) with almost zero latency between interfaces.
