USB audio interface de la marque MOTU

Public price: $449 incl. VAT

MOTU is now shipping the 4pre, a half-rack 6x8 hybrid audio interface and mixer.

The 4pre connects via FireWire or hi-speed USB2 to a Mac or PC computer and features front-panel mixing, various I/O options, including four mic inputs with preamps, alternative guitar/line inputs, four channels of analog output, stereo S/PDIF and two stereo headphone outputs. Other features include digitally controlled analog trim, DDS (Direct Digital Synthesis) audio clocking and an instrument tuner.

 

 

Four mic inputs with preamps

The 4pre connects to any current Mac or PC via high-speed USB 2.0 or FireWire and provides six simultaneous inputs and eight outputs. Four XLR/TRS “combo” jacks equipped with preamps provide input for up to four microphones, with individual 48V phantom power and –20 dB pad. All settings can be adjusted directly on the front panel, or from the 4pre’s CueMix software running on the computer.

 

Alternately, the four quarter-inch (TRS) analog inputs provide two hi-Z guitar inputs and two balanced line level inputs, allowing users to connect guitars, a keyboard, drum machine, or other line-level instrument. Four quarter-inch (TRS) analog outputs can be connected to powered monitors, stage wedges, or other output destinations.

 

All quarter-inch analog connectors are balanced for protection against RF interference, AC hum, and other noise-producing environmental factors.

 

The 4pre’s two guitar jacks are designed to provide high-impedance load characteristics suitable for passive and active pickups alike, to deliver guitar tone to host software.

 

The rear panel includes S/PDIF digital I/O at sample rates up to 96 kHz.

 

Mixing for studio and stage

The 4pre front panel provides mixing of all four analog inputs. Users can plug in a mic, guitar, keyboard, and control the mix going to the main outs via four front-panel knobs. Users can also adjust input trim levels from the front panel.

 

In the studio, 4pre front-panel mixing can be used for monitor-mixing while tracking into host software on a computer (to eliminate software latency during recording), or for playing connected instruments even when the computer is turned off. On stage, the 4pre can be used for live mixing, either stand-alone or with a computer.

 

Pricing & Availability

The 4pre is now shipping. Price is $495 USD.
