MOTU 624 & 8A INTERFACES
Motu has released another two mobile interfaces, both with Thunderbolt and USB3 connectivity for Mac and Windows. The 624 and 8A boast ultra low latency performance (1.6ms roundtrip at 96k with Thunderbolt) with DSP-driven mixing and extensive AVB/TSN networking features as on the flagship 1248 and 16A interfaces. The 624 has 32 channels of audio I/O, and the 8A has 34. USB class compliant firmware support connection to any iOS device with a standard camera connection kit. ESS Sabre32 DAC technology provides 123dB dynamic range on the balanced analogue outputs, and the DSP gives you console-style mixing with 48 channels, 12 stereo buses, and 32-bit floating point effects processing including analogue-modelled EQ, compression and reverb. You can even use the 624 or 8A as a standalone mixer with wireless tablet, smartphone or laptop control. The Ethernet port lets you connect another Motu AVB interface for more I/O, or connect straight to an expanded AVB/TSN network with multiple interfaces and computers.
