AES3 and S/PDIF I/O with Flexibility

The MOTU 8D interface is a smart USB solution when you need digital connectivity for your DAW, and a compact-yet-powerful way to add I/O to your AVB audio network. It's equipped with two stereo pairs of AES3 digital I/O, plus two stereo pairs of RCA S/PDIF I/O. You also have access to 64 channels of USB I/O, as well as 32 channels of AVB network I/O. Built-in DSP processing allows you to add spot-on emulations of vintage EQs, compressors, reverb, and more, without taxing your host computer and with ultra-low latency. The MOTU 8D can even operate as a standalone mixer, and can be controlled wirelessly via Wi-Fi (router not included).


Connect to your computer, audio network, or iOS device

With USB 2.0 and AVB Ethernet connectivity, the 8D is ready to connect to your computer, AVB audio network, or iOS device. It can even be controlled via Wi-Fi, allowing you to route signals, apply effects processing, and create multiple mixes, all wirelessly from your iPad or laptop.

Comprehensive metering and simple front-panel controls

The 8D's full-color LCD screen displays signal activity for all inputs and outputs. And while the front-panel controls are very simple (only five buttons plus a headphone volume control), they provide full access to all hardware functions.


Included audio analysis tools

When you're managing hundreds of channels of digital audio in a large-scale facility, the ability to troubleshoot and resolve problems fast is paramount. The 8D's software interface gives you access to precision analysis tools including a full-screen, real-time FFT display, a spectrogram waterfall display, an oscilloscope, an X-Y plot, and a phase analyzer.


DSP emulations of classic hardware EQs, compressors, and more

Built-in DSP means you can apply outstanding effects processing to any input or output on the 8D, without taxing your host computer or adding latency. And these aren't generic effects — tap into compression modeled after the legendary LA-2A, EQ modeled after British analog mixing consoles, vintage reverb, and more.
