MOTU brought real excitement to this year’s Winter NAMM, thanks to their new 828mk3 Hybrid interface and updated MachFive 3 sampler. If you demand plenty of I/O, premium sound quality, and flexibility from your recording interface, then take a good look at MOTU’s amazing 828mk3 Hybrid. This versatile interface includes both FireWire and USB connections, so you can connect to the computers you want. This interface is ideal for the recordist who has multiple machines or who collaborates with artists and bands. Having that kind of connectivity, plus a whole lot of I/O options, means you’ll be prepared for all kinds of recording situations.
The 828mk3 Hybrid delivers 24-bit/192kHz-quality audio, and it’s equipped with combo inputs, 1/4″ inputs, and ADAT I/O banks. You can also use this amazing unit as a standalone mixer; its onboard DSP lets you route signals any way you like. Add built-in DSP-powered EQ, compression, and reverb effects, and you can give the artist a lush, spacious headphone mix, without tapping into any of your computer’s CPU power. You can also record those effects, so it’s just like having top-notch plug-ins without the processor strain! All of the onboard DSP mixing and effects are controlled by the included CueMix FX software. This is one box you won’t want to be without.
MOTU also updated their amazing MachFive sampler. MachFive 3 features a third-generation UVI engine and gives you an all-new user interface that makes navigation easier than ever. This outstanding sampler now includes 47 built-in effects; a script editor; and over 32GB of instruments, phrases, and loops. You can import AIFF, SDII, Apple Loops, Rex, and WAV files with drag-and-drop ease. Call your Sales Engineer today to get more details about both the 828mk3 Hybrid and the MachFive 3.
