The MicroBook II is an impressively small 5.5 by 3.6 by 1.25 inches, which means that it slides easily into your backpack or a large pocket. It also sits nicely next to your laptop or desktop computer.



Studio-grade sound
Engineered for the discriminating ear



The MicroBook II has been engineered with MOTU's renowned, award-winning audio interface technology, which delivers the uncompromising audio quality and rock-solid performance MOTU interfaces are known for worldwide. You can always record and mix with confidence, even in most demanding professional recording situations, knowing that decades of engineering experience are behind you, every step of the way. The MicroBook II delivers measured audio specs that rival interfaces costing hundreds more.

High-speed USB 2.0
High bandwidth and low latency



The MicroBook II can record and play all channels simultaneously, and high-speed USB 2.0 provides plenty of bandwidth, even at 96 kHz.



Flexible volume control
Digital encoders push and turn



The two digital rotary encoders not only look good, they feel good, too. Push the volume knob repeatedly to cycle among the main outs, headphones, or both, as indicated by the LEDs. For the mic input, adjust trim and toggle 48V phantom power or the -20 dB pad. Hands-on control is immediate and intuitive.



Professional I/O
Personal recording with no-compromise, professional I/O connections



XLR mic input



Go ahead: connect your $5000 mic. This preamp is worthy of the best you've got.



Hi-Z guitar in



Proper impedance delivers totally authentic guitar tones that feel right as you play.



Line in



Add a keyboard or other line level input on balanced connectors for pristine sound.



Multiple independent outputs



Feed independent audio to each output pair: main out, line out, and phones.



Balanced line level connectors



Protect your mix from AC hum and RF noise with balanced connections.



Digital controlled analog trim



You get the best of both worlds: analog sound quality with digital precision.



Mixing and effects
It's an 8-bus digital mixer, too



The MicroBook is an 8-bus digital mixer that lets you mix live inputs with each other, with or without host software tracks. With CueMix FX running on your computer, you can create separate mixes of live audio from your mic, guitar, and keyboard, and send each mix to separate outputs (main out, line out, and phones out) or any combination of all three.




Solid metal chassis
MOTU interfaces are built to last

The MicroBook aluminum alloy chassis is lightweight, yet incredibly sturdy and durable, and designed to withstand the rigors of the studio, stage, and tour bus. In a world awash with cheap plastic, the cool touch of the MicroBook II's metal exterior in your hands is a reassuring reminder that you are holding quality engineering and construction built to last.
