Metric Halo's Mobile I/O 2882+DSP is a portable, one-rackspace, 18-in/20-out audio mixing and routing interface with built-in digital signal processing that can be powered entirely from a Mac FireWire bus. The newly released +DSP environment introduces an onboard processing chip that offers users access to Metric Halo's signal processing effects without sacrificing computer processing power.

The high-resolution DSP is connected directly to the converters and I/O, features automatic processing delay compensation and ultralow signal processing latency, and offers dynamic and instant instantiation of plug-ins. Flexible signal routing and sophisticated patch and preset-management systems round out the features.

Mobile I/O 2882+DSP ships bundled with a variety of Metric Halo's plug-ins, including MIOComp, MIOLimit, MIOEQ-6, MIOEQ-12, MIO M/S Processor and MIOStrip. Compatible with both Mac OS 9 and X, the plug-ins are now shipping with all Mobile I/O +DSP models.

Mobile I/O 2882 provides eight analog inputs, including eight mic pre’s, as well as line and instrument inputs. The mic pre’s feature individually switchable phantom power. The comprehensive simultaneous I/O also includes eight channels of ADAT digital I/O, with 24-bit/96kHz converters, two channels of AES/EBU or S/PDIF digital I/O, word clock I/O and 24/96 headphone output with front panel mute and dim. The interface may be powered directly from the FireWire bus, battery or wall outlet. A switchable high-power mode provides expanded output headroom when powered from an AC outlet.

For studio recording, the Mobile I/O 2882+DSP provides a high-quality interface to a DAW, offering sound processing or simple file transfer between workstations. In the broadcast domain, the Mobile I/O 2882+DSP offers instant playback of up to eight channels per box, allowing instant playback of four individual stereo sends for music cues or sound effects. In the live performance arena, in addition to operating as a remote recorder for archiving performances or to play out backing tracks and musical cues, Mobile I/O 2882+DSP can operate as a soft synth mixer and I/O interface, as well as a tool for multizone analysis and system venue tuning with SpectraFoo.
