MOTU 4PRE Hybrid
MOTU have introduced their new 4PRE Hybrid (Firewire and USB) audio interface.
The 4pre is a 8.5 by 7 by 1.75 inches, suited for use with a laptop or desktop computer.
The four inputs are not just for mics: they are combo jacks that also accept a quarter-inch plug. Inputs 1-2 take line-level signals, such as the output from a synth or keyboard. Inputs 3-4 are "hi-Z" DI inputs with proper impedance for plugging in your electric guitar directly, without an amp or cabinet, to process your guitar sound through amp and cab simulation plug-ins in your host software.
The 4pre connects to a Mac or PC via FireWire or USB 2.0. You can connect your mic, guitar, keyboard, and digital input. You can balance the levels of mics, guitars, a keyboard, or other inputs from the front panel. Each input has its own volume control. You can route inputs directly to an output pair, each with its own mix: main outs, line outs, S/PDIF out, and phones he 4pre has an aluminum alloy chassis.
The 4pre can be joined with another MOTU half-rack interface (MIDI or audio) and together they can be mounted in a standard 19-inch equipment rack.
Pricing and Availability:
$485 (List price), availability soon
