MOTU Product Overview

The 8D is a flexible digital audio interface, router, splitter, converter and stand-alone mixer with AVB-TSN networking and connectivity to a host computer through class compliant, high-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0 and iOS). The 8D provides four channels of AES3 (AES/EBU) I/O, four channels of RCA (coaxial) S/PDIF I/O, 64 channels of USB I/O, 32 channels of AVB-TSN network I/O and a headphone output, for a total of 210 simultaneous I/O channels. All AES3 and S/PDIF inputs are equipped with sample rate conversion. A convenient, assignable front-panel headphone output with volume control allows for convenient monitoring of any stereo channel pair.

Housed in a sturdy aluminum alloy half-rack enclosure, the 8D is ideal for routing AES3 and S/PDIF digital audio in live performance systems, AVB-TSN network installations or recording studios of any size. Powerful DSP delivers large console style mixing with 48 channels, 12 stereo busses, and 32-bit floating point effects processing, including modeled analog EQ, vintage compression and classic reverb. Extensive routing patches ins to outs, or splits input channels to multiple destinations. Use the 8D as a stand-alone mixer and control everything from the 8D's innovative web app running on an iPad™, iPhone™, tablet, smartphone, and laptop. Connect a second MOTU AVB-TSN interface with a simple Ethernet cable. Incorporate the 8D into a larger AVB-TSN audio network with standard AVB-TSN switches and sub-millisecond latency, even over long cable runs. From studio to stage to corporate campus, the 8D delivers flexible digital routing/conversion, state-of-the-art operation and reliable performance.
