MOTU Track16 Desktop Audio Interface

MOTU Track16 Desktop Audio Interface
Simple operation. Clean design. Studio-grade sound quality. Track16 exhibits these design principles through and through. And dont let its compact size deceive you. Theres plenty of I/O available for a well-equipped personal studio ready for multi-player recording sessions. Track16s pristine mic preamps balanced line-level audio connections and renowned MOTU engineering deliver world-class audio quality.

Track16s mic inputs are equipped with pristine transparent preamps and offer individually adjustable 48V phantom power and -20 dB pad. All settings can be adjusted directly using the MIC 1 and MIC 2 buttons or from Track16s CueMix software running on your computer. Mic inputs can be operated individually or in stereo pairs as needed. Without proper impedance levels direct DI guitar input wont sound right when you run it through your guitar amp plug-ins and virtual stomp boxes. Track16s two guitar jacks provide high-impedance load characteristics suitable for passive and active pickups alike to deliver proper guitar tone to your host software. For even more authentic feel and response when using virtual guitar amp and cabinet plug-ins use a ZBox guitar impedance adapter. Track16 analog inputs are designed to be flexible so that you can address a wide range of recording situations. The balanced quarter-inch line inputs provide proper level matching for keyboards analog mixers effects processors or other gear with either -10 dB or +4 dB reference level input. The stereo eighth-inch “mini” input is great for an iPad or other consumer devices. Connect a pair of powered studio monitors to the main outs. The line outs can be used for a variety of purposes either mirroring the main outs (perhaps for a 2nd set of studio monitors) or acting as a completely independent output pair (for a separate mix going to a mixing board or stage wedges for example). Because they can be programmed the line outs offer tremendous flexibility. Track16s preamps deliver clean sound 53 dB of gain and adjustments in approximately 1 dB increments using the front-panel trims or the on-screen CueMix software. The gain adjustment itself is smooth and the digital control gives you both precision and the ability to save and recall trim settings. So you get the best of both worlds: analog trim with digital precision and control. Trim is adjusted at the input before the mixer so it applies to all mixes. Mix levels are controlled separately from trim so you never sacrifice sound quality for a balanced mix. The optical digital inputs can be trimmed too.
