Make the Audio Express the centerpiece of your personal studio! This 6-in/6-out audio interface puts the right connectivity where you need it: on your desktop. It's perfect for the singer/songwriter first starting to record, yet the Audio Express offers premium sound quality (better than CD, at 24-bit/96kHz) so it's perfect for the top-level engineer who needs a mobile recording solution. Better yet, the MOTU Audio Express features both USB and FireWire ports. That means it'll work with nearly any computer you'll come across, so it's easier than ever to collaborate. Just put the MOTU Audio Express in your laptop bag, bring it to your bandmate's house, and you can get going.

Key features:

  • 6-input, 6-output audio interface for Mac & Windows
  • 6 x 8 physical input/output channels - all channels are available simultaneously & operate independently
  • Hybrid FireWire/USB 2.0 connectivity - connect to your Mac or PC via either bus-powered Firewire or hi-speed USB2
  • 8-bus digital mixer - routes & mixes all six inputs to any output pair
  • Four separate mixes - each output pair (main outs, line outs, S/PDIF out & phones) can have a completely different mix of all six inputs, with or without computer tracks
  • Two mic/guitar combo jacks - provide hi-Z 1/4" guitar input or XLR mic input with phantom power, 20dB pad, Precision Digital Trim & plenty of gain
  • Stereo analog inputs - on line-level, balanced TRS quarter-inch jacks. Great for keyboards or other line level-input signals
  • Stereo main outs - on balanced TRS quarter-inch jacks. Connect directly to powered speakers (or other line-level analog destination)
  • Stereo 24-bit 96kHz S/PDIF digital in/out
  • Stereo headphone output on quarter-inch jack with independent volume control
  • Support for standard sample rates up to 96kHz
  • Precision Digital Trim - digitally controlled analog trim on all inputs provides adjustments in approximately 1dB increments, so you can fine-tune the balance of your inputs & then save/recall trim configurations
  • Front-panel mixing and control - each input has its own dedicated volume knob Control multiple mixes with clear feedback from front panel LEDs & metering
  • CueMix FX cross-platform mixing software
  • Stand-alone operation
  • Front panel volume control of main outs & headphone jack
  • Expandable - add additional interfaces for more I/O as your needs grow
  • Time code support - directly resolves to (or generates) time code via any quarter-inch input or output, without the need for an extra synchronizer
  • Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS) - a DSP-driven phase lock engine & internal clock source that produces imperceptibly low jitter characteristics (below the noise floor), even when the Audio Express is resolved to an external clock source via SMPTE time code
  • Sample-accurate MIDI
  • Foot switch input
