FEATURES

  • Superb audio quality — For example, the balanced TRS analog outputs produce 123 dB dynamic range and -110 dB THD+N (0.0003%) at -1 dBFS, Unweighted, 1 kHz.
  • 66 simultaneous audio channels — 4 mic inputs, 2 guitar inputs, 8 x 12 balanced analog with dedicated main and monitor outs, 2 x 8-channel ADAT optical, RCA S/PDIF (with SRC), and two independent phone outs for 32 inputs and 34 outputs. 
  • Universal connectivity — Thunderbolt or high-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0). USB audio class-compliant firmware and Industry standard drivers work with any audio software.
  • On-board 32-bit floating point DSP with large console style mixing and effects — Flexible 48-input digital mixer with 12 stereo busses and DSP effects, including reverb with sends, plus modeled analog EQ and compression, gate, and reverb.
  • System expansion and audio networking — Add a 2nd MOTU AVB interface (1248, 8M or 16A) with a simple Cat-5e ethernet cable. Connect up to five MOTU interfaces using a MOTU AVB Switch (sold separately). Build a network with multiple interfaces and computers using standard AVB switches and network cabling, with ultra-low network latency (0.625 ms), even over long cable runs (hundreds of meters). Stream hundreds of audio channels among devices and computers on the network.
  • Matrix routing and splitting — Flexible, matrix-style audio routing and splitting for any analog or digital input, computer channel or network stream to any other output, computer, or network device. Split any single input to unlimited multiple output destinations.
  • Web app control — Control on-board DSP, mixing, device settings, and network audio routing from web app software running in your favorite browser on a laptop, tablet or smart phone connected by wire or Wi-Fi to your local area network.
  • Stand-alone mixing with wireless control — Connect an Apple Airport™ or other Wi-Fi router directly to the 1248 with a standard Ethernet cable and control the 1248's powerful mixing and DSP effects from your smart phone or tablet, without a computer. Great for live sound mixing.
Description
MOTU presents the world’s first Thunderbolt audio interface with 48-channel DSP mixing and AVB networking. The 1248 is the flagship interface for a new line of high performance audio interfaces that combine superb audio quality and state-of-the-art features.

The 1248 gives you everything you need to turn your computer into a powerful 24-bit/192 kHz digital audio workstation. As a “hybrid” audio interface, the 1248 provides flexible connectivity to your computer via ultra-fast Thunderbolt™ technology or high-speed USB2, with 30 channels of pristine analog I/O, combined with sixteen channels of ADAT optical digital I/O and stereo S/PDIF, for a total of 66 simultaneous audio channels..

66 Simultaneous Audio Channels

The 1248 is equally well-suited for studio and stage, with or without a computer. As an interface or standalone mixer, the 1248 provides 32 separate inputs and 34 separate outputs, including four XLR mic inputs with individual preamps, two dedicated front-panel hi-Z guitar pickups, dedicated main outs and monitor outs, and two front panel headphone jacks.

4 mic inputs, 2 guitar inputs, 8 x 12 balanced analog with dedicated main and monitor outs, 2 x 8-channel ADAT optical, RCA S/PDIF (with SRC), and two independent phone outs for 32 inputs and 34 outputs.
Need more I/O? Expansion possibilities are seamless and virtually limitless.

Thunderbolt technology & USB2.0

Thunderbolt gives you an astonishing 256 channels of computer I/O (128 in and out). You can use them to route audio to the physical inputs and outputs on the 1248, plus the 48-channel mixer inside the 1248, plus audio network streams. The 1248 is the first and only interface to combine Thunderbolt I/O connectivity with AVB audio networking.
Don’t have a Thunderbolt-equipped computer yet? The 1248 is USB 2.0 audio class compliant, which means you enjoy OS-level USB compatibility and support, including iPad support (with a camera connection kit). 

48-channel digital mixing

The 1248 is equipped with a 48-channel digital mixer designed just like a large format mixing console. The 48 inputs can take signal from anywhere: the physical inputs on the 1248 interface itself, audio channels from host software on your computer, audio network streams, or even mixer outputs. The mixer provides 7 stereo aux busses, 3 groups, a reverb bus that can alternately serve as a 4th group, a Main Mix bus and a separate Monitor bus that can serve as a solo bus. In essence: capable and transparent mixing.
