MOTU 828mk3 Hybrid - Firewire and USB Audio Interface

High Grade Performance and Extreme Flexibility
Featuring a massive array of inputs and outputs, this workhorse delivers the professional quality and high versatility that has made MOTU a big name player among audio interfaces. With it's flexible connectivity, the 828mk3 will connect to virtually any recording set up it encounters, and provide up to 28 inputs of recording.

Incredible Sound Quality and Exceptional Routing Capabilities
One reason the MOTU 828 series has been so popular and well loved is the fact that these interfaces sound incredible, while remaining extraordinarily versatile. You can record up to 24-bit/192khz-quality audio, and the MOTU 828mk3 Hybrid offers combo inputs, 1/4" inputs, and ADAT banks.

Effects and Mixing Capabilities
You can also use the MOTU 828mk3 as a standalone mixer, using the onboard DSP to route signals the way you please. In fact, you even get built-in EQ, compression, and reverb effects that are powered by DSP. That way, you can give the 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 processor strain! All of the DSP mixing and effects are controlled by the CueMix FX software that's included with the MOTU 828mk3 Hybrid.

Control CueMix with Your iPad
MOTU's CueMix FX software, the mixing software that drives the powerful routing of the 828mk3, can be controlled from your iPad. MOTU created CueMix templates for the TouchOSC controller app, giving you complete control over your 828mk3's mixing and effects processing over a Wi-Fi network. This means that when you're recording in your studio, you don't need to keep going back to your computer to adjust gain levels, change monitoring effects, or virtually anything else you rely on CueMix for.

When what you want is a great-sounding interface that's also reliable, you can count on MOTU every time. And when what you want is maximum versatility, thanks to a decked-out array of I/O, you'll want to grab the MOTU 828mk3 Hybrid!
