MOTU MicroBook Audio Interface

MOTU has announced the MicroBook, a USB bus-powered audio interface that delivers studio- grade audio performance in a compact size small enough to fit in your pocket. The MicroBook turns a Mac or PC computer into a personal 4x2 recording studio with all the audio I/O and mixing needed to make professional-quality recordings.motu microbook

The MicroBook gives users a complete personal recording solution for a Mac or PC laptop or desktop computer, with four simultaneous inputs for a microphone, a guitar, and a keyboard or other stereo line level device. The mic preamp delivers neutral coloration and pristine sound, with 20 dB pad and 48V phantom power for condenser mics. Programmable analog, digital, and headphone outputs provide flexible monitoring options.

Due to its slim form factor, the MicroBook's mic input is a balanced quarter-inch jack. If a user would prefer to use a mic cable with an XLR plug, the MicroBook package includes an XLR-to-quarter-inch adapter. The mic input preamp and A/D converter deliver pristine sound and transparent coloration. True 48V phantom power can be enabled, powered by the MicroBook's USB connection to the computer.
 
The MicroBook's Precision Digital Trim feature provides digitally controlled analog trim on all analog inputs. This gives users the best of both worlds: the excellent signal quality of analog audio circuitry and the fine-tune precision of digital control. Users can even save and recall trim settings on their computer.

The guitar input provides the proper impedance loads for guitars, so users can play through guitar processing plug-ins in their host software with confidence, knowing that they are getting natural feel and response. To make host plug-ins feel and sound even more like a real classic guitar amp, users can connect a MOTU ZBox impedance adapter.

The "mini" eighth-inch analog input can be used to connect an iPod or other stereo line level signal. Audio input can be mixed with other inputs and routed to any output pair. For example, a user could plug in a guitar and rehearse with a mix from his iPod. Or the input signal can be routed to the computer to be recorded or mixed in host software.

The MicroBook provides four pairs of outputs: balanced TRS quarter- inch main outs, stereo "mini" line out, S/PDIF digital out, and phones (on a stereo "mini" eighth-inch jack). Users can connect powered studio monitors to the main outs and/or powered desktop speakers to the stereo mini output jack. With its internal mixing and routing features, the MicroBook lets users program up to five different stereo mixes consisting of any combination of inputs and host audio tracks. So the main outs, stereo "mini" out, and phones can each produce an independent output mix. Alternately, users can send the same mix to multiple outputs, or employ a separate output for the MicroBook's built-in test tone generator or white and pink noise generator. The S/PDIF digital output mirrors the main outs.
