Description

MOTU interfaces can be found in studios around the world because of their superb performance record and trusted reliability. The 1248 is MOTU's flagship interface for their next-generation line of high-performance audio interfaces, combining incredible audio and state-of-the-art features.66 audio channels - All the I/O need in one rack spaceThe 1248 provides all of the I/O need for a well-equipped personal studio, including four mic inputs, two dedicated hi-Z guitar inputs, 8 x 12 balanced analog with separate main and monitor outs, 2 x 8-channel ADAT optical, and RCA S/PDIF (with sample rate conversion), for a total of 32 inputs and 34 outputs. Need more I/O? Expansion possibilities are seamless and virtually limitless.Superb audio quality - Pure sound, without compromiseThe 1248 employs latest-generation ESS Sabre32 Ultra converters, known for their industry-leading performance, together with expertly engineered analog circuits that reflect more than three decades of pro audio engineering expertise. The result? The 1248 achieves actual, measured performance of 123dB dynamic range (A-weighted, 20Hz to 20kHz) on its balanced TRS analog outputs.Ultra-low I/O latency - State-of-the-art latency performanceEvery digital audio workflow has some latency. The only question is, how much? In the case of the 1248, the answer is, not much at all. In the 1248, latency is measured in a handful of samples, from the time an audio signal first goes digital to its arrival somewhere else (to an output the mixer, or the computer). By keeping latency this low in the hardware, the 1248 helps minimize latency introduced by system.Thunderbolt technology - Plug-and-play ease with massive bandwidthThunderbolt lets connect displays, hard drives, and other peripherals to computer, along with the 1248, and the Thunderbolt bus won't even break a sweat. But more importantly, Thunderbolt gives an astonishing 256 channels of computer I/O (128 in and out). can use them to route audio to the physical inputs and outputs on the 1248, plus the 48-channel mixer inside the 1248, plus audio network streams. The 1248 is one of the first and only interfaces to combine Thunderbolt I/O connectivity with AVB audio networking.Audio class compliant USB 2.0 - Broad compatibility with future-proof connectivityDon't have a Thunderbolt-equipped computer yet? Hi-speed USB 2.0 provides across -the-board compatibility with pretty much all laptops and desktop computers. The 1248 is USB audio class compliant, which means enjoy OS-level USB compatibility and support, including iPad support (works with camera connection kit, sold separately). Since USB 2.0 devices are compatible with USB 3.0-equipped hosts, 1248 interface is a future-proof investment in studio.48-channel digital mixing - Control up to 12 separate stereo mixesThe 1248 is equipped with a 48-channel digital mixer designed just like a large format mixing console. The 48 inputs can take signal from anywhere; the physical inputs on the 1248 interface itself, audio channels from host software on computer, audio network streams, or even mixer outputs. The mixer provides 7 stereo aux busses, 3 groups, a reverb bus that can alternately serve as a 4th group, a Main Mix bus and a separate Monitor bus that can serve as a solo bus. In essence: capable and transparent mixing.Modeled analog EQ and compression - Vintage processing with 32-bit floating point precisionBritish analog mixing consoles are renowned for their musical EQ profiles. The 1248 meticulously models these classic EQs to give the very same, magical EQ response found on these coveted desks
