Product information - MOTU 16A

AVB Thunderbolt and USB Audio Interface

Special offer: If you buy an AVB-compatible MOTU interface or converter, you will now receive the full German version of the professional DAW Digital Performer 9 free of charge!

The MOTU 16A AVB is a Thunderbolt and USB audio interface with AVB network function. It can be connected to the host computer either via Thunderbolt or USB. The MOTU 16A AVB can also be used as a digital mixer in standalone mode, which is a very practical and versatile feature in addition to the normal application of an audio interface.

AVB network and Standalone-Mixer application

The MOTU 16A can also be connected to other AVB audio interfaces via the AVB Ethernet port, as mentioned above. This can be done either by a direct Ethernet cable connection from interface to interface or by using the single available MOTU AVB switch, which can be used to connect more than two MOTU audio interfaces simultaneously. In this way, any number of inputs and outputs can be added to an existing AVB network without much effort. The standalone mixer function of the MOTU 16A AVB rounds off the audio interface's highly flexible application profile, as it no longer needs to be rotated, but can be remotely controlled via a web app on an iPhone, iPad, smartphone, tablet or laptop. In this way, certain parameters can be modified. This feature makes the MOTU 16A AVB very interesting for mobile applications, such as stage or general live applications. However, it is also very suitable for studios, as it can be easily expanded through the AVB network. Furthermore, it is also well suited for home studios, as the high quality converters and very good 24-bit/192kHz resolution allow for excellent audio recordings.

Designed for extensive audio recording

The MOTU 16A AVB has a total of 32 input and output channels. Of these, 16 are analog line inputs and outputs and 16 I/Os via the optical ADAT connector on the rear panel. An overview of all I/Os is given by the LCD display, which shows the levels of all analog I/Os and an ADAT bank. The MOTU 16A AVB is used in large studios or for extensive audio recording sessions, where it impresses with brilliant sound quality and reliable functionality. All inputs and outputs are accessible from the rear.
