MOTU have announced that they have started shipping their new ‘personal studio recording’ solution. The MicroBook II provides simultaneous inputs for a microphone, a guitar, and a keyboard or other stereo line level device. The mic preamp delivers neutral coloration and pristine sound, with 20 dB pad and 48V phantom power for condenser mics. Programmable outputs provide flexible monitoring options.
Studio-grade sound without compromise
Engineered with MOTU’s renowned, award-winning audio interface technology, MicroBook II delivers uncompromising audio quality, with measured audio specs that match interfaces costing hundreds more.
A complete 4 x 6 recording solution
Plug in a mic, guitar, and keyboard (or iPad) and record simultaneously. Connect your best studio monitors with balanced quarter-inch cables. Add desktop speakers and studio-grade headphones.
The MicroBook II’s sturdy, aluminum-alloy enclosure is an impressively small 5.5 by 3.6 by 1.25 inches, so it slides easily into your backpack or even your pocket. USB 2.0 bus power means no wall wart.
Flexible volume control and mixing
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. Hands-on control is immediate and intuitive.
