MOTU 8M Product Description

Thunderbolt Not Included

The 8M hybrid Thunderbolt/USB 2.0 audio interface continues a tradition of high-quality audio that many of us have come to expect. With a mere -110dB THD+N of self noise, this 8M's offers you some of the cleanest audio around. Eight amazingly transparent microphone preamps include MOTU's V-Limit protection, which offers a 9dB buffer to prevent digital clipping. An additional 16 channels of digital I/O via ADAT optical ports brings your total channel count to 24 x 24. To go with this impressive selection of high-quality I/O, MOTU gave the 8M ultra-fast Thunderbolt connectivity (in addition to USB 2.0), so you get epically low system latency too.


  • A fantastic 24-in/24-out hybrid audio interface for studio and live sound applications
  • 8 pristine microphone preamplifiers offer clear and transparent sound of any kind of microphone
  • V-Limit overload protection offers 9dB of headroom to prevent digital clipping
  • ADAT optical I/O lets you expand your system with additional outboard gear
  • Choose from ultra-low-latency Thunderbolt or high-speed USB 2.0 computer connectivity
  • Onboard 32-bit floating point DSP-driven digital mixer with EQ, dynamics, and effects provides latency-free routing
  • Hook up a wireless router and take complete control of the onboard mixer from your iOS device - no computer needed!
  • MOTU's AVB audio networking lets you easily expand your system and additional AVB equipped audio interfaces
  • Create an AVB network via optional AVB Switches for support for up to five compatible interfaces
