MOTU's new 828mkII ($795), a single-rackspace FireWire audio interface for Mac and Windows, replaces the 828 at the same price but adds new features.

These new features include more simultaneous inputs (20) and outputs (22), 24-bit 96kHz operation, 8-bus monitor mixing with front-panel LCD programming, stand-alone operation, front-panel mic/guitar/instrument inputs with preamps and sends, SMPTE timecode sync and MIDI I/O.

"The 828mkII is equally well-suited for both studio and stage," said Jim Cooper, director of marketing at MOTU. "It gives you all of the analog and digital I/O you need for desktop recording, including convenient front-panel mic inputs with sends for your favorite compressor, EQ or guitar amp. You can program multiple monitor mixes onscreen with the included CueMix Console software, hit the road and then tweak mix settings at your gig using the front-panel LCD display without the computer. And, we've added convenient MIDI jacks so you don't need to carry an extra MIDI interface."

Additional features include ADAT sync input; wordclock input/output; punch-in/out; two 1394 FireWire connectors; IEC power receptacle; universal compatibility with virtually all audio software on Mac OS 9/X and Windows ME/2K/XP; and AudioDesk, a sample-accurate workstation software for Mac OS with 24-bit recording/editing and 32-bit automated mixing/processing/mastering.

The 828mkII is expected to ship in Q2 of 2003. For more, visit
