Large console style mixing from your laptop, tablet or smartphone
48 channel mixing
A flexible, dynamic, scalabe mixing experience
With almost twice the DSP power of MOTU's award-winning line of
"mk3" audio interfaces, the 8D mixer provides up to 48
assignable input channels.
Aux bus mixing
Long-throw faders for aux sends
The Aux Mixing tab lets you zero in on a single aux bus and control send
levels with long-throw faders, just like hardware consoles that let you
temporarily "flip" aux sends to the channel faders... perfect for detailed
mixing on any aux bus.
Monitor Mix / Solo Bus
Convenient dedicated monitoring
The monitor Mix is specifically designed for monitoring. It can mirror
any other bus, or act as a solo bus for isolating all currently soloed inputs,
aux busses or groups. You can, of course, create additional monitor mixes
with seven available aux busses.
32-bit floating point processing
Virtually infinite headroom
The 8D's mixing and DSP effects engine employs 32-bit floating point
processing, which produces virtually infinite headroom for complex mixing and
processing calculations, along with an infinitesimally low noise floor.
Modeled analog EQ
Precise and musical equalization
British analog mixing consoles are renowned for their musical EQ profiles.
The 8D meticulously models these classic EQ curve to give you the
very same, magical EQ settings found on these coveted desks. Four separate
filters are available on every input, including optional low-shelf and high-shelf.
An all-around verb with tails up to 60 seconds
The 8D's Classic Reverb™ provides three frequency bands with
adjustable cross-over points, predelay, spread and reverb lengths up to 60
seconds. Perfect for monitor mixes when tracking in the studio or for
treating vocals during a live show.
Finely crafted vintage compression
The Leveler™ is an accurate model of the legendary Teletronix™
LA-2A™ optical leveling amplifier, known for its unique and highly
sought-after Automatic Gain Control (AGC) characteristics. The heart of
the LA-2A is the T4 opto-coupler, a photoelectric device with almost magical
(signal dependent) self-adjusting behavior that makes optical compressors
the tool of choice for smoothing out jsut about any audio material.
Gate and HPF
Gating and high-pass filtering on every input
Each input is equipped with a standard high-pass filter and gate module for
removing rumble, environmental noise, and other signal clean-up tasks.
