MOTU has equipped a new model of their 828mkII computer interface with high-speed USB 2.0 for connection to any USB 2.0 compatible Mac or PC.
The 828mkII-USB provides a 480 Mbit USB 2.0 connection to any USB 2.0-equipped Mac or PC. Users can freely choose between purchasing the 828mkII FireWire model or the USB 2.0 model, depending their computer and other FireWire or USB devices they plan to connect to it. Most recent computers (built within the last several years) support the high-speed USB 2.0 standard.
The 828mkII provides 20 separate inputs and 22 outputs, including separate main outs and headphone out. The two mic/guitar/instrument inputs feature analog, pre-amplified sends which allow you to insert your favorite outboard EQ, compressor, guitar amp, reverb or other effects processor before the signal goes digital. Use any input as a return.
Both models (828mkII-FireWire and 828mkII-USB2) are now shipping and share the same US list price of $795.
