MOTU Track16 USB & Firewire Desktop Audio Interface

Please contact me with information about availability and pricing for MOTU Track16 USB & Firewire Desktop Audio Interface

The MOTU Track16 is a 16 X 14 I/O USB & Firewire audio interface for Mac & PC. The Track16 is a portable desktop design that features detailed and clear metering, easy access and control of your I/O settings via the central encoder and rock-solid MOTU drivers for Mac and Windows based systems. The Track16 can be bus-powered via the firewire protocol only, but includes a power supply for USB operation. The included breakout cable allows access to the majority of the analog audio I/O, MIDI I/O and power. The digital I/O, 6.5mm and 3.5mm headphone outputs, a hi-impedance instrument input, and a handy 3.5mm stereo input are available on the unit itself. There is also a Breakout Box (sold separately) for the Track16 available from MOTU. 


      Feature Highlights
      16 x 14 audio interface for Mac and Windows
      All channels are available simultaneously and operate independently.
      Hybrid Firewire/USB 2.0 Connectivity
      Connects to your Mac or PC via either bus-powered Firewire or hi-speed USB2.
      One-touch Operation
      Simply tap the input or output you wish to control with the main knob.
      Compact desktop form factor
      Sits neatly next to your computer keyboard or laptop.
      16-bus digital mixer
      Routes and mixes all sixteen inputs to any output pair.
      Eight Separate Stereo Mixes
      Each output pair (main outs, line outs, phones, 4x optical, and a return bus) can have a completely different mix of all eight inputs, with or without computer tracks.
      Two Mic Inputs
      2x pre-amp equipped mic inputs with individual 48V phantom power, -20 dB pad, Precision Digital Trim™, and plenty of gain.
      Two Guitar Inputs
      2x hi-Z guitar inputs with Precision Digital Trim.
      Stereo Line Inputs
      On balanced TRS quarter-inch jacks. Connect a keyboard, synth, drum machine or other analog source.
      Stereo Main Outs
      On balanced TRS quarter-inch jacks. Connect directly to powered speakers (or other line-level analog destination).
      Stereo Line Outs
      Separate line-level outputs for secondary studio monitors or other destination.
      Two Headphone Outputs
      Can't find your headphone adapter? No problem. Both a quarter-inch and eighth-inch jack are provided. Or connect two pairs of phones simultaneously.
      Support for HD audio
      Supports standard sample rates up to 192 kHz.
      Precision Digital Trim™
      Digitally controlled analog trim on all inputs provides adjustments in approximately 1 dB increments. Fine-tune the balance of your inputs and then save/recall trim configurations.
      CueMix FX™ Cross-Platform Mixing Software
      Attractive on-screen graphic mixing with an instrument tuner and audio analysis tools including real-time FFT display, spectrogram "waterfall" display, oscilloscope, X-Y plot and linear or polar phase analysis.
      Stand-alone operation
      Bring the Track16 to your gig, with or without a computer. Just plug in the included power adapter and you are ready to go.
      Add additional interfaces for more I/O as your needs grow.
      Time Code Support
      Directly resolves to (or generates) time code via any quarter-inch input or output, without the need for an extra synchronizer.
      Direct Digital Synthesis™ (DDS)
      DSP-driven phase lock engine and internal clock source produces imperceptibly low jitter characteristics (below the noise floor), even when the Track16 is resolved to an external clock source via SMPTE time code.
      DC-coupled TRS outputs
      Can be used with Volta™ (sold separately) to manipulate and sequence voltage-controlled modular synthesizers from a host DAW.
      Play-and-plug Operation With Your Mac or PC via Firewire or USB 2.0
      Compatible with all current and recent generation Macs and PCs.
