The MOTU Monitor 8 audio interface is a 24 x 16 x 8 monitor mixing interface, which offers 8 analogue inputs, 16 channels of ADAT input and 6 independent headphone outputs, plus an on board 48 channel mixing. Its the perfect addition to an AVB setup where a band want professional independent monitoring while recording, or for using AVB interfaces to create a live mixing rig.
Connection to the host computer is via Thunderbolt (for full channel count) or via class-complaint USB (24 channels of I/O, even under iOS). As part of MOTU's range of AVB-equipped interfaces, the Monitor 8 can form part of an expanded system, using a standard ethernet connection to add a single additional interface, or via an AVB switch to connect to an extended network of audio interfaces.
Main outputs can be connected to 2 sets of monitor speakers and each of the 6 monitor output channels can be used to headphones, mono-summed line level outputs for stage monitors, balanced quarter inch jacks for In Ear Monitors - all simultaneously.
Powerful onboard DSP handles routing of signals, allowing complex internal mixing, distribution of signal and even allows the Monitor 8 to function as a digital format converter. Any input can be mapped to any output(s) and the DSP also includes a mixer with 7 Aux Busses, 3 Groups, Reverb, Monitor Buss, EQ and Dynamics on every channel.
The large backlit 324 x 24 LCD lets you view all signal activity at a glance with detailed metering for all analog and digital I/O. Hardware settings can be accessed from a simple and convenient menu, or accessed via a web application from a Mac, PC or iOS device.
Included with every MOTU interface is a 3 year warranty and a licence for MOTU's AudioDesk 4.0 recording application for Mac and PC.
