CueMix DSP latency-free monitoring system.
Stand-alone operation – program your mixes at the studio and then bring the MOTU 896HD to your gig – no computer needed.
Multiple CueMix DSP mixes – create different monitor mixes for the main outs and headphones. Add send/return loops for outboard gear – with no latency. Up to four separate mixes are supported (two at 176.4 or 192kHz).
Eight mic pre-amps with switchable 48-volt phantom power and front-panel trim controls.
18 inputs / 22 outputs – there’s no channel sharing in the MOTU 896HD; the analog inputs, optical inputs, AES/EBU I/O, headphone out and main outs are all handled as separate channels. At 176.4 or 192 kHz, main outs and headphone are mirrored.
8 channels of 24-bit ADAT optical input/output. Eight channels at 44.1/48kHz. Four channels at 88.2/96kHz.
Sample-accurate digital transfers between ADAT digital tape decks and the computer via the ADAT sync port.
Expandable – add additional 828, 828mkII, 896 or MOTU 896HD FireWire interfaces for additional I/O.
