DSP Wireless Control AVB Audio Networking for Mobile Audio Recording

The latest in MOTU’s popular, award-winning UltraLite interface series, the UltraLite AVB is an 18-input, 18-output audio interface with DSP mixing, wi-fi control, AVB audio networking and best-in-class analog audio quality for on-the-go mobile audio recording.

36 SIMULTANEOUS AUDIO CHANNELS – THE MOST I/O EVER OFFERED IN THE ULTRALITE SERIES

You get 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).

BEST-IN-CLASS ANALOG AUDIO QUALITY – PERFORMANCE SUITABLE FOR THE MOST DEMANDING SITUATIONS

The UltraLite AVB sets a new standard for analog audio performance in a mobile audio interface. The eight balanced analog outputs deliver a stunning 117 dB dynamic range. This level of measured performance had previously only been available in audio interfaces that cost thousands of dollars.

UNIVERSAL CONNECTIVITY – CLASS COMPLIANT USB 2.0 PLUS AUDIO OVER ETHERNET

The UltraLite AVB connects to your computer with audio class compliant hi-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0 and iOS) for across-the-board compatibility now and in the future. Alternately, if you have a Mac running OS X Yosemite (10.10) or later, you can use a standard Ethernet cable for operation as an audio interface. Either way, the UltraLite AVB is compatible with all audio software.

DSP-POWERED MIXING – CONSOLE-STYLE MIXING WITH 48 CHANNELS AND 12 BUSSES

The mixer in the UltraLite AVB is a complete departure from earlier models. In fact, it’s identical to the mixer found in MOTU’s flagship 1248 and 16A interfaces. If you know your way around a large-format mixing console, you’ll feel right at home. If you’ve ever wished to mix on a large console, the driver’s seat is now yours.

WEB APP CONTROL – CONTROL EVERYTHING FROM YOUR LAPTOP, TABLET AND SMARTPHONE

The software that you use to control the UltraLite doesn’t reside on your hard drive. It’s a web app served from the hardware itself. This means you can control the UltraLite’s on-board DSP, mixing, device settings, and network audio routing from the web app software running in your favorite web browser on a laptop, tablet or smartphone connected by wire or Wi-Fi to your local area network. Use any web client on any platform – Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android – as long as it shares the same network.

STAND-ALONE MIXING WITH WIRELESS CONTROL – CONTROL EVERYTHING FROM YOUR IPAD OR IPHONE

Connect an Apple Airport or other Wi-Fi router directly to the UltraLite with a standard Ethernet cable and control the UltraLite AVB’s powerful mixing and DSP effects from your smartphone or tablet, without a computer. Great for live sound mixing!
