MOTU shows ultra-portable MicroBook interface

MOTU has introduced its small MicroBook audio interface on Tuesday. Powered entirely by a USB connection and compatible with Macs and Windows PCs, the MicroBook gets four inputs and two outputs, letting users connect a microphone, guitar, keyboard or other stereo line level device and record simultaneously. A 3.5mm input and output lets users connect sources such as iPods or other portable audio devices, as well as computer speakers.

The mic preamp has a 20dB pad and 48V phantom power for condenser mics. The analog, digital and headphone outputs are programmable and allow for live monitoring. An XLR-to-quarter-inch adapter is included to let users plug in a wider range of microphones.

An optical output is present, which provides the same output as the main outputs. There is a digital trim for all outputs, and an independent volume control for the headphones. CueMix FX is onboard with no-latency mixing and monitoring with EQ and dynamics processing, as is a 7-band parametric EQ and compression. The MicroBook can generate test tones and white/pink noise.

The MicroBook, which includes AudioDesk DAW software for Macs, will ship in July for $269.
