The MOTU 896mk3 Hybrid FireWire/USB audio interface enhances the already supremely accomplished 896mk3 with the addition of USB. With eight XLR/TRS "combo" style analog inputs with preamps, true hi-Z guitar inputs plus a load of digital I/O for a total of 28 inputs and 32 outputs, the 896mk3 Hybrid is ready to rock. Onboard effects juice the featureset with Classic Reverb, Brit-flavoured EQ, and an emulation of the legendary LA-2A, which does jaw-dropping things to drums and mix busses. If you need a top-notch interface, check out the MOTU 896mk3 Hybrid.

Key features:

  • Hybrid FireWire/USB2 connectivity — connect to your computer via plug-and-play FireWire or hi-speed USB2
  • CueMix FX — flexible 28 input/16 bus mixer with on-board DSP effects, including reverb with sends/returns, plus EQ & compression on every input & output
  • 28 inputs / 32 outputs (at 44.1/48 kHz) — there's no channel sharing in the 896mk3; the mic inputs, AES/EBU I/O, S/PDIF I/O, headphone out & main outs are all handled as separate channels
  • Front-panel control — access any setting in your entire 896mk3 mix directly from the front panel
  • Stand-alone operation — program your mixes at the studio & then bring the 896mk3 to your gig — no computer needed
  • Multiple CueMix FX mixes — for example, create different monitor mixes for the main outs & headphones. Or add send/return loops for outboard gear — with no latency
  • Eight rear panel combo jacks provide 1/4” or XLR mic input with phantom power, pad & plenty of gain
  • Clip protection — input limiter prevents digital clipping & distortion from overloaded signal levels up to +12 dB over zero
  • Eight 24-bit 192kHz analog inputs & outputs on XLR jacks
  • Precision Digital Trim — Digitally controlled analog trim on all analog inputs provides accurate adjustements in 1 dB increments. Fine-tune the balance of your analog inputs & then save/recall trim configurations
  • Flexible optical I/O — 16 channels of ADAT lightpipe, 8 channels of SMUX (96 kHz) or two pairs of stereo TOSLink. Mix and match formats between the two banks
