MOTU 828MkII - Price Drop!

Published: Wed April 18, 2007  News Feed

Want to turn your Mac or PC computer into a very powerful 24-bit, 96kHz digital audio workstation? Now it's your perfect opportunity!

We have dropped the price of Motu's 828MkII USB 2.0 Audio Interface, which you can now buy for only £369! VIEW PRODUCT PAGE

With simple plug-and-play operation via FireWire or "high-speed" USB 2.0, the 828mkII provides 20 inputs and 22 outputs, including 10 channels of pristine 96kHz analog recording and playback, combined with 8 channels of ADAT digital I/O and stereo S/PDIF. And you can expand your system by connecting additional interfaces.

The 828mkII is equally well-suited for studio and stage, with or without a computer. As a computer interface, the 828mkII provides 20 separate inputs and 22 outputs, including separate main outs and headphone out. The two mic/guitar/instrument inputs feature analog, pre-amplified sends which allow you to insert your favorite outboard EQ, compressor, guitar amp, reverb or other effects processor before the signal goes digital.

Sounds interesting? Here's an in-depth look into the 828MkII:

FRONT PANEL CONTROLS

Front-Panel mic/ guitar inputs:

The two front-panel inputs accept either high impedance quarter-inch inputs or low impedance XLR microphone inputs. The microphone preamplifiers provide plenty of gain and individually switchable phantom power. Use the rear panels sends to insert an outboard EQ, compressor, reverb or other processor before the signal goes digital.

Volume Control:

Dual function knob provides separate volume control over main outputs and headphones

CueMix DSP mixer controls:

Create up to four stereo monitor mixes with 20 inputs each using those front-panel controls. Mix to any four output pairs you wish.  Because the mixing takes place in the 828MkII itself, your computer's processor is free for other tasks.

Backlit LCD display:

The 828MkII can be used as a stand-alone mixer. The front-panel display allows you to configure your system using an intuitive interface. Every setting is available from the LCD.

Level Meters/ Status Indicators:

Dedicated LEDs display audio levels, tach and lock status and clock rate.

REAR PANEL CONTROLS

International power supply:

Built-in international power supply accepts 110-220v on a standard IEC cable so your 828 MkII can follow you wherever your music takes you.

Word Clock:

Word clock input and output for synchronization with a wide variety of digital devices - or a centralized word clock source.

ADAT Optical I/O:

Eight channels of ADAT Optical (lightpipe) input and output. Connect a digital mixer, ADAT or additional A/D/A converter. Also supports four channels of 88.2 0r 96 kHz audio.

ADAT Sync port:

Provides sample-accurate sync for compatible devices. Transfer multiple passes of ADAT via lightpipe with single-sample accuracy every time.

S/PDIF I/O:

Stereo 24-bit, 96kHz S/PDIF digital I/O. Connect a DAT machine or effects processor.

Standard FireWire or High-Speed USB 2.0:

Connect your FireWire or high-speed USB 2.0-equipped computer here. No PCI or PC cards to install, just plug in and go. Connect your additional interfaces via a standard FireWire or USB hub, or daisy-chain up to four interfaces without a hib (FireWire only)

SMPTE I/O:

Resolve the 828MkII directly to an external analog tape deck or video source. No extra synchronizer needed.

Hands-Free Punch in/out:

Connect a pedal for hands-free punch in/out.

MIDI input and output:

No need to carry an additional MIDI interface. Connect a MIDI controller, keyboard, sound module, control surface or any other MIDI device.

Eight Balanced TRS Analog Ins/Outs:

24-bit 96kHz analog inputs and outputs on balanced/unbalanced quarter-inch connectors. Input level can be switched between +4/-10 for each input via software.

Sends:

These pre-amplified analog outputs from the two front-pannel inputs allow you to insert a compressor or effects processor before the signal goes digital. Use any input as a return.

Main Outputs:

Connect powered monitors directly to these jacks and separately control your main mix and monitor levels with convenient, front-pannel knobs.

 

MOTU 828mkII Inputs and Outputs

All inputs and outputs are discrete. In other words, using a mic-preamp input does not 'steal' an input from the TRS analog I/O bank, and the headphones and main outputs are available as separate mix destinations. They do not 'mirror' another output. CueMix DSP, however, can be configured to mirror an existing mix bus to the headphones.

MOTU 828mkII MIDI

The 828mkII includes a 16-channel MIDI interface that provides sample-accurate timing with supporting software. Connect a MIDI keyboard, sound module or control surface, and you are ready to go. The FireWire or USB cable carries both MIDI and audio so you don't need to connect an additional USB cable for MIDI.
