MOTU 2408MK3 COMPUTER RECORDING SYSTEM: High-End Digital Audio Recording Made Easy

The Mark Of The Unicorn 2408mk3 contains everything you need to turn your computer into a powerful 24-bit/96kHz digital audio workstation. It provides eight channels of pristine 96kHz analog recording/playback combined with 24 channels of ADAT and Tascam digital I/O -- the most ever offered in a single rack space audio interface. Connect up to four interfaces to the included PCI-424 card for an expanded system capable of 96 simultaneous active input and output connections at 96kHz. The 2408mk3 is ideal for both the computer-based studio with no mixing board and more elaborate studios built around a digital mixer of any size.

For the computer-based studio, the included PCI-424 card features CueMix DSP, a flexible DSP-driven mixing and monitoring matrix that eliminates the need for an external mixer or patch-bay. Connect all of your studio gear, including synths, keyboards and even effects processors. Then control it all from your desktop with no audible monitoring latency and no processor drain on your computer. With 24 channels of digital I/O, the 2408 is ideal for connecting your computer to a digital mixer. Both ADAT lightpipe and Tascam TDIF digital connections are supported at any sample rate up to 96kHz.

And here's another 2408mk3 first: built-in video and SMPTE synchronization. Slave your entire workstation directly to video or SMPTE time code with sub-frame accuracy--without a dedicated synchronizer. The 2408mk3 provides cross-platform compatibility with Macintosh, Windows 98SE/Me/2K/XP and all of your favorite audio software and host-based effects via WDM/ASIO/Sound Manager drivers. Or you can use the included AudioDesk workstation software for Macintosh, with 24-bit recording/editing and 32-bit mixing/processing/mastering.

The 2408mk3 upgrades the award-winning 2408 with many significant improvements including 96kHz support, SMPTE synchronization, support for four interfaces and a 96-channel DSP-driven monitor mixer. The 1U rack-mountable 2408mk3 provides seven banks of I/O: one bank of 24-bit, 96kHz analog on balanced TRS connectors, three banks of 96kHz ADAT optical, three banks of 96kHz Tascam TDIF, plus stereo S/PDIF. You can choose any three banks (up to 24 channels) to be active at one time. This means you can hook up three ADATs, three DA-88s, and eight analog devices all at the same time and access any three banks - in any combination of formats. And you can freely switch formats at any time.

In addition to the eight dedicated analog outputs, the 2408mk3 also features a stereo output with front panel volume control so you can plug powered monitors directly into the 2408mk3. The PCI-424 card included with 2408mk3 core systems is fully compatible with legacy MOTU interfaces originally designed for the PCI-324 card. Connect any MOTU PCI interface, including the 2408, 2408mkII, 1296, 1224, 24i and 308. Mix and match new and legacy interfaces as you please. The PCI-424 card features Cuemix DSP, a powerful processor dedicated to creating a custom tailored monitor mix of up to 96 channels of 96kHz audio. Because the mixing takes place on the card itself, instead of making the round trip from the PCI bus to the host processor, the 2408mk3 system provides the same near-zero latency performance as today's latest digital mixers. CueMix DSP completely eliminates the buffer latency associated with monitoring on host-based systems. Because the DSP is mixing for you, your computer's CPU is free for other tasks. Cuemix DSP is the most flexible Cuemix ever, allowing you to mix multiple channels into multiple mix busses or directly assigned outputs. Manage your monitor mix with the enhanced Cuemix Console software included with the 2408mk3. The Cuemix console now provides independent level and pan controls for each input on every mix. Also, CueMix DSP does not limit you to four stereo mixes. You can configur
