Cambridge, MA (February 20, 2015)—MOTU has shipped its UltraLite AVB, a compact 18-input, 18-output audio interface, offering DSP mixing, wireless control, AVB audio networking and more.
The UltraLite AVB provides separate mic and guitar inputs (two each), 8-channel ADAT optical (switchable to stereo TOSLink), 6 x 8 balanced quarter-inch analog I/O and MIDI IN/OUT jacks, housed in an aluminum alloy half-rack chassis. The balanced analog outputs achieve a measured dynamic range of 117 dB.
Expanded DSP reportedly doubles the available processing power for the redesigned console-style mixer, which provides 48 inputs, 12 stereo busses and 32-bit floating point effects processing, including modeled analog EQ, vintage compression and classic reverb. Matrix routing lets users patch ins to outs, or split inputs to multiple destinations. The unit can also be used as a stand-alone mixer and control everything wirelessly from web app software running on an iOS device or laptop.
The UltraLite AVB connects to a computer through AVB Ethernet or audio class compliant hi-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0 and iOS) and records at sample rates up to 192 kHz. Through AVB Ethernet, users can connect another MOTU AVB interface for more I/O, or connect to an expanded MOTU AVB network with multiple interfaces and computers.
