Thunderbolt™/ USB2/AVB Ethernet Audio Interface with 112 channels of digital I/O and MADI

 

The 112D is a flexible digital audio interface, router, format converter, and stand-alone mixer, with console-style 48-channel mixing and DSP effects. The 112D can operate as an audio interface for a studio workstation (DAW) or as a standalone format converter or mixer. The following sections provide a brief overview of its main features and characteristics

 

112 channels of simultaneous digital I/O The 112D provides 24 channels of AES/EBU digital I/O and 24 channels of ADAT optical digital I/O at sample rates up to 96 kHz. The 112D also serves as a 64-channel MADI interface, router, converter, and MADI-to-AVB bridge, for a total of 112 simultaneous digital I/O channels. Complementary I/O configurations 112D delivers an exceptional amount of digital audio I/O. In addition, it is designed to complement MOTU’s other AVB-equipped audio interfaces, to deliver a wide range of I/O options. You can mix and match several interfaces and operate them as a unified I/O and mixing system. The following sections provide a bird’s-eye glance of the I/O configurations offered by each interface in the MOTU AVB line-up. Each interface provides a variety of analog and digital interconnects, all active simultaneously, designed to provide everything you need for a wide range of situations
