USB audio interface from MOTU belonging to the UltraLite series

MOTU has announced the UltraLite MK3 Hybrid, described as "the world's first hybrid FireWire/USB2 audio interface for Mac and Windows."

The UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid is designed to provide flexible and mobile operation via FireWire or hi-speed USB2 connectivity to a Mac or PC computer, with professional audio quality at samples rates up to 192 kHz and plenty of I/O, including two mic/instrument inputs, six line-level analog inputs, ten channels of analog output, stereo S/PDIF and a stereo headphone output.

As the first-ever “hybrid” audio interface of its kind, the rear panel of the UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid provides both a FireWire A (400 Mbps) and hi-speed USB2 (480 Mbps) port.

Users can connect the UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid to their computer using either port for full-featured operation and ultra-low bus latency, the company says. According to MOTU, using FireWire provides the added benefit of fully mobile bus-powered operation, with enough power through the FireWire cable connection from the computer to support all features, including 48-volt phantom power to both mic inputs.

An included power adapter can be used for USB2 connectivity, or operation as a stand-alone mixer.

The UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid will ship Q4 of 2009 at the same price as the original UltraLite-mk3. No pricing has been announced yet.
