MOTU Traveler MK3

Hi-Def Bus-Powered Firewire Interface


The MOTU Traveler-mk3 is a mobile FireWire audio interface for Mac and Windows that provides eight channels of pristine 192kHz analog recording and playback combined with twenty channels of digital I/O in ADAT optical, AES/EBU and S/PDIF formats.

As a complete audio recording system with 28 inputs and 30 outputs operating simultaneously, including four XLR/TRS combo style mic inputs equipped with high-quality preamps, the Traveler-mk3 features V-Limit signal overload protection, true hi-Z guitar inputs, a 32-bit floating point DSP for on-board effects and mixing, two banks of configurable optical I/O and much more.

It also features CueMix FX, a flexible 28-input/16-bus mixer with on-board DSP effects, including classic reverb with sends/returns, plus modeled EQ and vintage compression on every input and output.

Engineered for portable recording situations with desktop or laptop computers, the MOTU Traveler-mk3 draws power from its FireWire connection to the computer. For extended remote sessions, it can be powered by an industry-standard field battery pack.

The MOTU Traveler-mk3 is housed in a strong, lightweight aluminum alloy case that fits neatly beneath any 15-inch laptop and slides easily into a backpack. Sturdy rack ears are included for convenient 19-inch rack mount installation.
