Monitor 8 Feature Summary




Three products in one


24 x 16 x 8 monitor mixer, 6-channel headphone amp and USB/AVB audio interface.


Exceptional audio quality


Employs the same industry-recognized analog design as MOTU's groundbreaking 1248, 8M and 16A audio interfaces. The balanced, DC-coupled analog outputs produce measured performance of 123 dB dynamic range (A-weighted) and -110 dB THD+N (0.0003%) at -1 dBFS, Unweighted, 1 kHz.


24 inputs and 8 stereo bus outputs


Mix 24 physical inputs, multi-channel computer audio, and 64 AVB audio network channels to eight stereo bus outputs (Main, Aux, and monitor groups A thru F). Inputs include 8 channels of balanced (TRS) analog and 16 channels (2 banks) of ADAT optical.


Six monitor groups with flexible outputs


Each group provides multiple mirrored outputs, including 2x 1/4-inch phones (front and rear panel), summed 1/4-inch mono out for stage monitors, and, for groups A-D, balanced stereo 1/4-inch outs, which can be fed to in-ear monitoring systems or other stereo destinations.


Universal connectivity


Connects to a computer with standard AVB Ethernet or audio class compliant high-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0 and iOS). Discovery app and web app software works alongside any host audio software.


On-board DSP with mixing and effects


Flexible 48-input digital mixer modeled after large format mixing consoles, with 12 stereo busses and DSP effects, including reverb, 4-band EQ, gate, and compression.


32-bit floating point processing


DSP-driven mixing and effects engine delivers virtually unlimited headroom and the utmost in sound quality.


Modeled vintage effects processing


Classic reverb. Compression modeled after the legendary LA-2A compressor. EQ modeled after British analog console EQs.




System expansion and audio networking


Add a 2nd MOTU AVB interface (1248, 8M, 16A, 24Ai or 24Ao) with a simple Cat-5e ethernet cable. Connect up to five MOTU interfaces using a MOTU AVB Switch (sold separately). Build a network with multiple interfaces and computers using standard AVB switches and network cabling, with ultra-low network latency, even over long cable runs (100 meters point to point). Stream hundreds of audio channels among devices and computers on the network.


Flexible matrix routing and splitting


Send any input to any output, or multiple outputs. Includes routing to and from the computer, plus any devices on the AVB network.


Stand-alone mixing with wireless control


Connect an Apple Airport™ or other Wi-Fi router directly to Monitor 8 with a standard Ethernet cable and control the 8M's powerful mixing and DSP effects from your smartphone or tablet, without a computer. Great for live show monitor mixing.


Web app control


Control on-board DSP, mixing, device settings, and network audio routing from web app software running in your favorite browser on a laptop, tablet or smartphone connected by wire or Wi-Fi to your local area network.


Two banks of ADAT digital input


Connect digital mixers, optical expanders or other gear. 16 channels at 44.1/48 kHz or 8 channels at 88.2/96 kHz.


Comprehensive metering


The large backlit 324 x 24 LCD lets you view all signal activity at a glance with detailed metering for all analog and digital I/O. Access hardware settings from a simple and convenient menu.


AudioDesk


Includes AudioDesk workstation software for Mac and Windows with 24-bit recording, sample-accurate editing and 32-bit mixing and mastering.
