The 24Ai provides flexible connectivity to your computer with class compliant, high-speed USB 2.0 and delivers 24 channels of pristine balanced analog input, combined with 48 channels of digital I/O, for a total of 72 audio channels.
As a computer interface, analog-to-optical expander, or stand-alone mixer, the 24Ai provides 24 analog inputs and three 8-channel banks of ADAT optical digital input and output. Connect a variety of line level inputs, including mixer outputs, audio snakes, synths, keyboards, drum machines and effects processors. Record, monitor, route and process all of these inputs using the professional on-board digital mixer — with no latency and no processor strain on your computer. Apply hardware DSP-driven effects processing to inputs, outputs, and busses independent of your host computer. Add Classic Reverb™ with lengths up to 60 seconds. Further sculpt your sound with 4-band parametric EQ, modeled vintage compression, and gating.
Add more MOTU interfaces as your needs grow, connected to a state-of-the-art audio network using standard AVB Ethernet switches and CAT-5e cabling, with near-zero network latency, even over long cable runs (100 meters point to point). Route hundreds of audio channels among multiple devices and computers on the network.
Control all DSP-based mixing and effects, device settings, and network audio routing using your favorite web browser running on your laptop, tablet and smart phone connected wirelessly or locally to the 24Ai audio network.
From studio to stage, the 24Ai delivers superb sound quality, state-of-the-art operation, and reliable performance.
