MOTU Ultralite AVB Product Description

The UltraLite AVB 18 x 18 from MOTU is a USB 2.0 audio interface that records at up to 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution, and features DSP mixing, Wi-Fi control and AVB audio networking. It is ideal for a multitude of audio recording applications for your mobile, project or home studio.

The UltraLite AVB 18 x 18 boasts 2 mic inputs, 2 guitar inputs, 6 line inputs, 8 line outputs, headphone out and 8-channel optical I/O for a total of 18 inputs and 18 outputs, simultaneously. The optical ports also support stereo TOSLink (optical S/PDIF). The unit also features a large backlit 128 x 48 pixel LCD screen that lets you view all signal activity at a glance with detailed metering for all analog and digital I/O. Access to hardware settings are available from a simple and convenient menu, and quick setup templates are available for many common use cases.

By connecting a Wi-Fi router directly with a standard Ethernet cable, you can control the UltraLite AVB's mixing and DSP effects from your smartphone or tablet, without a computer. This is especially handy for mixing live sound. For more I/O, the system can be expanded by daisy-chaining a second MOTU interface via Ethernet cable, and for even more, up to five MOTU interfaces can be linked using a MOTU AVB Switch (sold separately).
