Expansion & drivers
Expand your 896mk3 system and run it with all your favorite audio software.
Adding more I/O to your 896mk3 system
As with other MOTU FireWire interfaces, the 896mk3 supplies two FireWire jacks so it can be daisy-chained with additional MOTU FireWire audio interfaces or other devices.
The 896mk3 is also fully compatible with the 8pre, a single rack MOTU interface that adds 8 mic preamp inputs to the 896mk3. Because the 8pre connects to the 896mk3 via ADAT optical, its mic inputs are fully integrated into the 896mk3's on-board CueMix FX digital mixer.
Drivers and AudioDesk workstation software
The 896mk3 provides CueMix FX and drivers for Mac (OS X) and Windows for cross-platform compatibility with virtually all audio software via WDM/ASIO/Core Audio drivers.
The 896mk3 includes AudioDesk®, the advanced workstation software for Mac OS X and Windows with 24-bit recording and editing, along with 32-bit mixing, processing and mastering.
