MOTU 828mk3 Hybrid Industry-Standard Audio Interface

The 828mk3 Hybrid takes the industry standard 828mk2 and adds even more incredible features. New features include a 32-bit floating point DSP for digital mixing and effects processing, more I/O, 192 kHz operation, true hi-Z guitar inputs, signal overload protection, digitally controlled analog input trims on all inputs, two banks of ADAT/TOSLink optical, MIDI I/O and now a choice of FireWire 400 or Hi-Speed USB2.0 connectivity

The 828mk3 Hybrid provides 28 inputs and 30 outputs: Eight balanced (TRS) 24-bit analog inputs and outputs, as well as two
XLR main outs and the two preamp inputs, (a total of ten analog inputs and outputs). Two optical banks provide 16 channels of ADAT optical or two banks of stereo TOSLink. All I/O is routed to a new on-board 16-bus digital mixer driven by hardware-based DSP with 32-bit floating point precision. The mixer allows users to apply no-latency effects processing to inputs, outputs or busses directly in the 828mk3 hardware, independent of the computer. Effects can even be applied when the 828mk3 is operating stand-alone (without a computer) as a complete rack-mounted mixer. Input signals to the computer can be recorded wet, dry, or dry with a wet monitor mix.

Effects include reverb, parametric EQ and compression/limiting. The 828mk3's Classic Reverb™ provides five different room types, three
frequency shelves with adjustable crossover points, shelf filtering and reverb lengths up to 60-seconds. Two forms of compression are
supplied: a standard compressor with conventional threshold/ratio/ attack/release/gain controls and the Leveler™, an accurate model of
the legendary LA-2A optical compressor, which provides vintage, musical automatic gain control. Finally, the EQ section provides 7-band parametric EQ modeled after British analog console EQ's, featuring 4 filter styles (gain/Q profiles) to effectively cover a wide range of audio material. LP and HP filters are also supplied with slopes that range from 6 to 36 dB.

In addition to MIDI I/O the 828mk3 Hybrid is equipped with Direct Digital Synthesis™ (DDS), a DSP- driven phase lock engine and internal clock source that produces imperceptibly low jitter characteristics (below the noise floor), even when the 828mk3 is resolved to an external clock source via either word clock or SMPTE time code. The 828mk3 can directly resolve to (or generate) time code via a dedicated quarter-inch time code input and output, without the need for an extra synchronizer.

Connecting via Firewire or USB2, the 828mk3 Hybrid provides CueMix FX and drivers for Mac (OS X) and Windows (XP and Vista) for cross-platform compatibility with virtually all audio software via WDM/ASIO/Core Audio drivers. The included AudioDesk® workstation software for Mac provides 24-bit recording/ editing and 32-bit mixing/processing/mastering.
