MOTU 8pre-es

The MOTU 8pre-es is an outstanding all-in-one audio interface. It boasts eight balanced analog inputs with crystal-clear preamps, eight DC-coupled TRS audio outputs, 16 digital inputs and outputs, and outstanding ESS Sabre32 conversion. The 8pre-es also features robust DSP effects, a full 48-channel mixer with EQ and aux busses, and an ultra-flexible routing matrix, all of which can be used without a host computer. Using the MOTU Touch Console app, these features can even be controlled remotely using touchscreen devices.
