Product Description

The MOTU Track16 connects to any Mac or PC laptop or desktop computer via bus-powered FireWire or high-speed USB 2.0, with professional audio quality at sample rates up to 192 kHz. Track16 provides plenty of I/O for a well-equipped studio, including two mic inputs, two guitar inputs, two stereo line-level inputs, four channels of analog output, optical digital I/O (stereo TOSLink or 8-channel ADAT) and an independent stereo headphone output.

Track16's compact size is perfect desktop studio operation, with one-touch volume control of any input or output channel pair. Four pairs of 7-segment ladder LEDs provide level metering for all analog inputs and outputs at a glance. Housed in a rugged, compact enclosure you can take anywhere, the Track16 is equally well-suited for studio and stage, providing 16 separate inputs and 14 separate outputs, plus 16-channel MIDI input and output.

Connect all of your studio gear, including microphones, guitars, synths, keyboards, drum machines, effects processors and even MIDI devices. Record, monitor, route and process all of these live inputs using the professional on-board CueMix FX 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 tail lengths up to 60 seconds. Further sculpt your sound with 7-band parametric EQ meticulously modeled after British analog console EQs. Use two forms of compression: a conventional compressor and the Leveler, an accurate model of the legendary LA-2A optical compressor that provides vintage, musical automatic gain control.

Use Track16s on-screen CueMix FX software to tune your guitar and other instruments. Analyze and scope your audio with advanced diagnostic tools, including a full-screen real-time FFT display, spectrogram waterfall display, full-featured oscilloscope, X-Y plot, and rectangular/polar phase analysis graphs.

The Track16 provides cross-platform compatibility with Mac and Windows and all of your favorite audio software and host-based effects via industry standard WDM/ASIO/Core Audio drivers. Or you can use the included AudioDesk workstation software for Mac OS X, with 24-bit recording/editing and 32-bit mixing, processing and mastering.

2x hi-Z guitar inputs with -20 dB pad and Precision Digital Trim.

Expandable

Time code support
Directly resolves to (or generates) time code via any quarter-inch input or output, without the need for an extra synchronizer.

Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS)

DC-coupled TRS outputs
Can be used with Volta (sold separately) to manipulate and sequence voltage-controlled modular synthesizers from a host DAW.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
