MOTU Track16 · Audio interface

Intended to fit into any DAW recording rig, MOTU designed the Track16 audio interface to keep desk space clear, while giving access to a full set of hands-on controls. Need to adjust mic input 1? With the push of a button, the Track 16's large central button lets you adjust the level. The same thing goes for every other input or output. Adjust any input or output level with a single push of a button via the Track16's top-panel controls.

The desktop MOTU Track16 24-bit 296kHz HD audio 16-input / 14-output hybrid USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 audio interface gives you all of the I/O and advanced mixing options you need to make professional-quality recordings. Analog inputs and outputs connect via a single DB25 breakout cable for maximum versatility. Two MOTU microphone preamplifiers provide low-noise high-headroom performance. Each microphone preamp features switchable +48V phantom power and a switchable -20dB pad. Two dedicated instrument direct inputs allow you to record guitar and bass direct. Four line level inputs (in two stereo pairs) for keyboards, drum machines, and outboard gear. Precision Digital Trim technology on all inputs provides adjustments in approximately 1/4dB increments, which you can store and later recall. The Track16's optical digital 8-channel ADAT / 2-channel TOSlink (optical S/PDIF) / 4-channel SMUX expansion ports let you add up to eight additional channels of outboard gear.

The MOTU Track16 features eight audio output: 2 x main, 2 x line, 2 x headphone. DC-coupled TRS outputs can be used with MOTU's Volta (sold separately) to manipulate and sequence voltage-controlled modular synthesizers from a host DAW.

The MOTU CueMix FX 16 track digital mixer lets you assign a separate pre-computer input mix to each output pair including the main outputs, the line outputs, the headphone outputs, 4 x optical pairs, and the return bus. CueMix FX also lets you apply effects and processing to input channels including Classic Reverb, a 7-band parametric EQ, a compressor, and the Leveler model of the LA-2A optical compressor before your incoming signal hits your computer, so no latency. The 8-bus mixer also functions in standalone mode without being connected to a computer.

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 DSP-driven phase lock engine and internal clock source produces imperceptibly low jitter characteristics (below the noise floor), even when the Track16 is resolved to an external clock source via SMPTE time code

Mac and PC compatible on both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms, support for Mac OS X and Windows 7. FireWire or USB 2.0 powered, external power supply also included for standalone use.
