motu 1248

Limitless CreativityThe MOTU 1248 hybrid audio interface can be used in many different ways, from a one-room production studio to an entire building or high-performance live applications. No matter how you choose to use it, the 1248 will provide consistent pristine sound quality whilst offering highly flexible I/O, including 32 inputs and 34 outputs, and a flexible 8 x 12 analog section.

Four MOTU preamps give you crystal clear amplification whilst Thunderbolt connectivity rids of any possible latency issues. The 1248 features a powerful DSP mixer that includes effects, EQ and dynamics. The AVB Ethernet allows you to network several different interfaces to the 1248 with the advanced options making it possible to use as a wirelessly controlled mixer using an iPad.

Amazing Features • High-quality 32-in/34-out hybrid audio interface for studio and live sound use
• Clear and transparent microphone sound provided by 4 pristine preamplifiers
• Ultra-low-latency Thunderbolt, high-speed USB 2.0, or iPad/iOS connectivity
• Built-in 32-bit floating point DSP-driven digital mixer

Thunderbolt Technology

thunderbolt connectivity

Huge BandwidthThunderbolt allows you to connect displays, hard drives and more to your computer, including he MOTU 1248. It also provides an incredible 256 channels of computer I/O, 128 in and 128 out.

You can use these to route the audio to physical inputs and outputs on the 1248, along with the 48-channel built-in mixer, and the audio network streams. Making the MOTU 1248 the first of its kind and the only interface that features both Thunderbolt I/O connectivity with AVB audio networking.

Class Compliant USB 2.0

Future-ProofIf you've not Thunderbolt connectivity on your computer, hi-speed USB 2.0 gives you compatibility for almost every laptop and desktop machine out there. The 1248 is USBA audio class compliant, so you have OS-level USB compatability and support.

You also get support for iPads as long as you have a camera connection kit. The MOTU 1248 becomes futureproof, as USB 2.0 devices are compatible with USB 3.0-equipped hosts, making it a timeless investment for your audio set up.

Matrix Routing & Splitting

routing

The Ultimate Patch-BayUsing the MOTU 1248's routing grid, you can route any source signal to any destination with just one click. Sources can be analog or digital inputs on the interface, channels on the pc, mixer bus outputs or audio network streams from other devices. Destinations can be interface outputs, host software inputs, mixer inputs or any other device on the same AVB network. You could also split any single input or stereo pair to a limitless number of output destinations

Expand With AVB Network

Versatile ConnectivityUsing the Ethernet connection, you can link additional MOTU audio interfaces with AVB technology. Either by connecting using a standard Ethernet cable as part of the audio network or by using an additional MOTU AVB setting.

An Ethernet cable link is just a case of directly connecting your other AVB device to your first one. If you’re connecting using MOTU AVB Switches, you can connect up to five units which gives you a possibility of linking hundreds of I/O over a wide area. No latency will be an issue as its all connected using a standard Cat-5e Ethernet cable.

The Power Of DSP

EQ, Compression & EffectsThe onboard DSP mixer found on the MOTU 1248 gives you even more useful functionality, with up to 48 inputs and 12 stereo busses that allow you to create extensive routing set ups separate from your laptop or PC.

When connecting a wireless router to the 1248 you gain access to all the internal mixing capabilities, such as processing and effects, all accessible using an app on an iOS device, which allows your interface to work as a standalone mixer. No matter if you’re in the studio or in a live situation, you’ll be sure to make use of the professional DSP EQ, gate, compression and reverb effects.

Web App Control

Web App Control

Wireless CapabilitiesThe software used to control the 1248 doesn't rely on a hard drive. It's a web app served from the hardware itself. Meaning you can control the 8As on-board DSP, mixing, device settings, and network audio routing.

You can do this all from a web browser of your choice on a laptop, tablet or smartphone connected by wire or Wi-Fi to your local area network. Available with any web client on any platform, Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android, it just needs to share the same network.
