MOTU announce the new 828x Thunderbolt & USB 2.0 audio interface. The MOTU 828x takes the 828 - MOTU's all-time best selling, award-winning audio interface - into its 5th generation and adds Thunderbolt technology. Also featuring USB 2.0 connectivity, the 828x features 28 inputs and 30 outputs, MIDI I/O, Windows and Mac OS support and all housed in a strong, lightweight aluminium chassis.
Thunderbolt technology - The future of connectivity
Thunderbolt fulfills the promise of a truly state-of-the-art connectivity standard for personal computers. With massive bandwidth, Thunderbolt allows you to connect displays, hard drives, and other peripherals to your computer, along with the 828x, up to six devices total (with the 828x at the end of the chain), and the Thunderbolt bus won't even break a sweat. Thunderbolt combines plug-and-play convenience with massive bandwidth and low latency for truly professional audio interface performance.
28 inputs and 30 outputs
Two combo-style mic/guitar inputs with preamps, 8 balanced analog in/out, XLR main outs, 16 channels of ADAT optical (8 channels at 96 kHz), plus S/PDIF, word clock and MIDI. Connect all of your studio gear, including microphones, guitars, synths, keyboards, drum machines and even effects processors.

Need Legacy FireWire Support?
The MOTU 828mk3 Hybrid provides virtually identical features to the 828x (including USB 2.0 support), except that instead of Thunderbolt, it provides FireWire connectivity to any FireWire-equipped Mac or PC. The connectors are "Type B" jacks typically used for FireWire 800, but they operate as standard FireWire 400 ports and are compatible with any FireWire port on your computer (A or B).
