Product Description

Delivering the same superb analog audio quality as their flagship 1248, the MOTU 624 is equipped with the renowned ESS Sabre32 DAC technology. Built on proven award-winning performance, the 624 turns your computer into a powerful 24-bit/192 kHz digital audio workstation.

MOTU 624 Thunderbolt USB3 Interface Features

  • The same superb analog audio quality as MOTU’s flagship 1248
  • 123 dB dynamic range on balanced analog outputs
  • Ultra-low latency and proven, high-performance MOTU drivers
  • Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 support for both OS X and Windows
  • 32 channels of I/O with DSP mixing and effects processing 
The 624 connects to any computer or iPad with Thunderbolt, super-speed USB 3.0, AVB Ethernet or USB class-compliant firmware. New optimized MOTU drivers work with all your favorite audio apps, delivering industry-leading, ultra-low round-trip latency (RTL) performance as low as 1.6 ms at 96 kHz over Thunderbolt with high-performance DAW hosts.

Housed in a rugged, compact enclosure you can take anywhere, the 624 provides eight channels of pristine analog I/O, including two XLR mic inputs with individual preamps, two dedicated front-panel hi-Z guitar pickups, dedicated main outs and a front panel headphone jack, combined with eight channels of ADAT optical digital I/O, for a total of 32 simultaneous audio channels.

Connect all of your studio gear, including microphones, guitars, synths, keyboards, drum machines and effects processors. Record, monitor, route and process all of these live inputs with no latency and no processor strain on your computer. Extensive routing features let you patch ins to outs, or split inputs to multiple destinations. Powerful DSP delivers large console style mixing with 48 channels, 12 stereo busses, and 32-bit floating point effects processing. Add Classic Reverb with lengths up to 60 seconds. Further sculpt your sound with 4-band parametric EQ carefully modeled after British analog console EQs. Choose between two forms of compression: a conventional compressor and the Leveler, an accurate model of the legendary LA-2A optical compressor that provides vintage, musical automatic gain control.

After recording and mixing in the studio, unplug the 624 from the computer and take it on stage for operation as a stand-alone mixer with effects. Control everything over Wi-Fi from your favorite web browser running on your laptop, tablet and smartphone.

Through AVB/TSN Ethernet, connect another MOTU AVB interface for more I/O — or connect to an expanded MOTU AVB network with multiple interfaces and computers.

From studio to stage, the 624 delivers exceptional sound quality, state-of-the-art operation and rock-solid performance.
