MOTU 828x 28x30 Thunderbolt / USB 2.0 Audio Interface
IN STOCK SHIPS FOR FREE
The 828x is quite possibly the best interface available for under $1500. Two mic preamps, 2 headphones & monitor outputs mean you won't need to buy a headphone amp for performers or a monitor controller to control your monitor volume. There is also an additional 8 analog i/o giving you 10 analog inputs in total. Add to that SPDIF, Midi, Onboard DSP FX and 16 ADAT digital inputs for adding MOTU 8 Pre's (or another ADAT equipped device) later, you really do have a future proof interface.
Thunderbolt & USB 2.0 give you flexibility you won't find on other devices.
In total you get 28 inputs and 30 outputs - all in a single rack space. MOTU's acclaimed CueMix FX mixer software makes it easy to set up any routing configuration, and built-in DSP gives you awesome-sounding reverb, EQ, and compression. That way, you can give your artist a lush headphone mix, without tapping into any of your computer's CPU power you need for recording. You can also record those effects, so it's like having top-notch plug-ins without the CPU strain!
The front panel of the 828x gives you a full visual display of all your i/o, as well as controls for main monitors, both headphone sends, the two preamps, and all Cue Mix settings. Yes 828x can be run standalone for mixing.
There isn't much the 828x can't do which is why the 828 range has been so popular with musicians and engineers for over 15yrs. The 828x model is a continuation of that fantastic legacy.
