Vintage Motu 2408 MK3 Digital Audio Interface. Condition is Used, but in near perfect condition.


The 2408mk3 is the ideal audio interface for computer-based studios where mixing is done entirely in the computer and for more advanced installations built around a digital mixer of any size. For the computer-based studio, the PCI–424 card features CueMix DSPTM, a flexible DSP-driven mixing and monitoring matrix that provides the same near-zero monitoring latency as today’s latest digital mixers. CueMix DSPTM allows 2408mk3 users to connect keyboards, synth modules, drum machines, and even effects processors and then monitor these live inputs with no audible delay and no processor drain on the host computer’s CPU. The CueMix DSP engine resides on the PCI–424 card, so it works across all interfaces connected to the card. The included CueMix Console software provides an on-screen mixer that gives users hands-on control of their monitor mix, regardless of what audio software they prefer to use. Digital Performer users have the additional option of controlling CueMix DSP directly within Digital Performer’s mixing environment.

For example, a user could connect the analog output of a synth module to a pair of 2408mk3 analog inputs, and then bus that signal via CueMix DSP to a pair of analog outputs connected to an effects processor – say a rack-mount reverb unit. The output from the effects processor could then be fed back into a second pair of 2408mk3 inputs (just like an aux return) and then routed to audio software running on the host computer, as well as the 2408mk3 main outputs. The result is that the user can apply hardware reverb to the live synth input, listen to it on their studio monitors with no audible delay while also recording it into their workstation software (either wet or dry), also with no delay. The performance of this signal path is the same as an aux send/return on a conventional digital mixer. CueMix DSP completely eliminates the buffer latency associated with host-based recording systems.

For users with fast computers, CueMix DSP can, of course, be combined with signals monitored through host-based effects as well. A fast computer allows users to drop their host buffer settings low enough to greatly reduce – and even eliminate – audible buffer latency. The combination of CueMix DSP and host-based monitoring with effects processing opens a new world of possibilities for MOTU workstation users.
