MOTU MicroBook IIc

The MOTU MicroBook IIc is a compact, class compliant, and powerful preamp with a slew of simultaneous inputs for various line-level devices. The preamp itself is naturally colored and includes a 20dB pad alongside 48V Phantom Power. Additionally, all of the interface’s outputs are programmable, allowing for a variety of flexible monitoring options unavailable in other similarly-priced interfaces. 

The MicroBook IIc is also an 8-bus digital mixer with mixable live inputs that can be used alongside or independently of host software tracks. When running the included CueMix FX software, users can create separate live audio mixes and route them to any combination of its three separate outputs: main out, line out, or phones out. This allows for a host of creative mixing/routing options no matter whether the interface is included in a studio or stage environment.
