The Traveler-mk3 allows you to connect a wide variety of studio gear, including microphones, guitars, synths, keyboards, drum machines, effects processors and more.
Digitally controlled analog input trim
In addition to an independent +4/-10 reference level switch, each balanced quarter-inch (TRS) analog input on the rear panel is also equipped with 12 dB of additional Precision Digital Trim.
Level matching analog inputs has never been easier or more convenient. You can carefully tune the balance among your analog inputs using the CueMix FX software (or front panel LCD menus) and then save the entire configuration on disk for instant recall. You can create and save as many trim configurations as you need.
Rear panel I/O
Eight balanced (TRS) 24-bit analog outputs, four analog inputs and four preamp inputs all operate at sample rates up to 192 kHz. Two optical banks provide 16 channels of ADAT optical at 48 kHz, 8 channels of S/MUX optical I/O at 96 kHz or two banks of stereo TOSLink at rates up to 96 kHz. The banks operate independently, allowing you to mix and match any optical formats. RCA S/PDIF and XLR AES/EBU connectors also supply independent stereo digital I/O.
|Analog 24-bit 192-kHz on +4/-10 bal/unbal TRS||4||8|
|Mic preamps 24-bit 192-kHz on XLR/TRS combo||4||-|
|ADAT optical (digital)†||16||16|
|S/PDIF 24-bit 96-kHz (digital)||stereo||stereo|
|AES/EBU 24-bit 96-kHz (digital)||stereo||stereo|
* The phone jack can operate as an independent output pair, or it can mirror any other Traveler-mk3 output pair, such as the main outs (analog 1-2).

Control room monitoring
Powered monitors can be plugged directly into the outputs of the Traveler-mk3 and you can attenuate the output from the software or the front-panel MASTER VOL control. Main out volume is not limited to stereo operation: quad, 5.1, 7.1 and even user-defined configurations are available. You can even program the Traveler-mk3 to control all 30 outputs with the MASTER VOL knob.
