    High-level recording with a superior hardware interface.

    The MOTU 896HD FireWire digital interface is easy to use and quick to set up. Empowers your computer with powerful 24-bit, 192kHz audio. Provides 8 mic preamps, pristine 192kHz analog I/O, 8 channels of ADAT digital, and stereo AES/EBU. Adapts to studio or stage. With a computer, provides 18 inputs and 22 outputs, including main out and headphone out. 

    The 896HD includes the CueMix DSP onboard mixing feature, a flexible DSP-driven 18-input/8-bus mixing and monitoring matrix that eliminates the need for an external mixer or patchbay. CueMix connects all of your studio gear, including mics, guitars, keyboards, drum machines, and effects processors. Everything can be controlled from the included CueMix Console software or directly from the 896HDs front panel. 

    If you're hitting the road, just program the 896 in the studio with the CueMix Console software and then take the 896 on the road for portable mixing and monitoring without a computer. In the studio, the 8 channels of ADAT optical I/O, plus stereo AES/EBU, make the 896HD an ideal companion to a digital mixer. All digital I/O connections support standard sample rates up to 96kHz.
