The newest audio interface from MOTU can serve not one, but two vital purposes in your studio! First, the 8pre USB is a USB2.0 16×12 audio interface, with eight mic preamps, stereo analog outs, stereo headphone out, and eight channels of digital optical audio input and output. With 48-volt phantom power and a 20dB pad on each mic/line/instrument input, and support for resolution up to 24-bit/96kHz, the 8pre is an outstanding option for capturing sessions into your Mac or Windows PC.
But it doesn’t stop there! The 8pre also lets you take advantage of the ADAT-format optical inputs on your existing audio interface or digital mixer! This makes it the ideal front end for capturing tracks into your audio interface and for expanding the input count on your mixer, and you still get all the benefits of the pristine preamps and high-resolution converters onboard the 8pre.
Two for one — that’s a great deal!
