MOTU UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid

November 11, 2009

This hybrid FireWire/USB 2 audio interface for Mac and Windows provides flexible and mobile operation via FireWire or high-speed USB 2 connectivity to a Mac or PC computer, with professional audio quality at samples rates up to 192 kHz and plenty of I/O, including two mic/instrument inputs, six line-level analog inputs, 10 channels of analog output, stereo S/PDIF and a stereo headphone output.

The rear panel of the UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid provides a FireWire A (400 Mbps) and high-speed USB 2 (480 Mbps) port. Users can connect the UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid to their computer using either port for full-featured operation and ultra-low bus latency. Using FireWire provides the added benefit of fully mobile bus-powered operation, with enough power through the FireWire cable connection from the computer to support all features, including 48-volt phantom power to both mic inputs. An included power adapter can be used for USB 2 connectivity or operation as a stand-alone mixer.

Other updates include computer-controllable pad and 48V phantom power switches for the two mic inputs, simplified two-way pad switch (-20 dB or off) and an increased mic trim range (0 to 60 dB). The UltraLite-mk3 Hybrid includes all features from the earlier FireWire-only mk3.
