2408mk3 Audio Interface with PCI-424 (PCI-X) Card description:

The MOTU 2408 MK3 Audio Interface. Dependable 24 Input / 26 Output Hard Disc Recording System with PCI 424 Card for Mac and PC.

The MOTU 2408 MK3 provides 8 channels of pristine 96kHz analog recording and 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 MOTU 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 MOTU 2408mk3 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. Built-in video and SMPTE synchronization allows you to slave your entire workstation directly to video or SMPTE time code with sub-frame accuracy - without a dedicated synchronizer. The MOTU 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 MOTU 2408 MK3 uses the second generation AudioWire protocol, a high-bandwidth digital audio format capable of carrying up to 24 channels of 96kHz digital audio in and out of the computer at the same time. The included PCI-424 card features a powerful DSP chip 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 system provides near-zero latency performance. Up to four audio interfaces (which are hot swappable) can be connected to a PCI-424 in any combination.

The main features of the MOTU 2408 MK3 include:

  • Dependable 24 Input / 26 Output Hard Disc Recording System with PCI 424 Card for Mac and PC

  • Resolve your entire system directly to word clock or SMPTE time code with sub-frame accuracy. No separate SMPTE synchronizer required
  • Includes AudioDesk full-featured, sample-accurate workstation software for MacOS 9 with recording, editing, mixing, real-time 32-bit effects processing & sample-accurate sync
  • PCI-424 Provides word clock and ADAT Sync – achieves sample-accurate digital transfers between digital tape decks and the computer
