MOTU TRIO OF DIGITAL I/O INTERFACES
Motu is debuting three new interfaces at NAMM 2017 with complementary digital audio I/O configurations, flexible routing, standalone mixing, AVB/TSN networking and connectivity to a host computer through class compliant USB2 (compatible with USB 3/0 and iOS). The M64, 8D and LP32 are ideal for routing digital audio streams in live performance systems, AVB/TSN network installations or recording studios of any size. An included mounting bracket kit allow two units to be joined side by side with each other, or mixed and matched with other Motu half-rack units to create a single rack-space configuration consisting of customised analogue, digital and/or MIDI I/O tailored to your needs.
The M64 provides one bank of optical MADI I/O, plus a second independent bank of coaxial MADI I/O on BNC connectors for a total of 256 simultaneous channels. A duplicate BNC output is included for splitting the coax bank to two separate destinations.
The 8D provides two separate stereo pairs (four channels) of AES3 digital I/O and two stereo pairs of S/PDIF digital I/O for a total of eight digital I/O channels. The AES3 inputs are equipped with sample rate conversion.
The LP32 provides four banks of eight-channel ADAT optical digital I/O for a total of 32 channels at 44.1/48 kHz or 16 channels of SMUX at 88.2/96k. Each I/O bank is individually switchable between eight-channel ADAT, four-channel SMUX or stereo TosLink (optical S/PDIF).
