MOTU 8432 overview

  • 1Description

The MicroBook IIc from MOTU is a reincarnation of the company's popular MicroBook, once again delivering a complete personal recording solution with simultaneous inputs for a microphone, a guitar, and a keyboard or other stereo line level devices. The microphone preamps deliver a neutral (no coloration) signal and are fitted with a -20 dB pad, digitally controlled analog trim, and 48V phantom power for use with condenser microphones. Programmable balanced and unbalanced outputs provide flexible monitoring options.

The unit also functions as an eight-bus digital mixer that allows for mixing live inputs with each other, with or without host software tracks. The included CueMix FX software for Mac OS X and Windows provides graphic, on-screen control of the on-board audio mixer, with up to four separate stereo mixes available. AudioDesk workstation software for Mac OS X and Windows features recording, editing, mixing, processing, and mastering functionality. Being USB audio class compliant allows the interface to connect to an iPad using a standard camera connection kit cable (sold separately) for recording and monitoring audio with a preferred iOS app.

    MOTU 8432 reviews

    MicroBook IIc - USB 2.0 Audio Interface for Personal Recording is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound, when it worked I think the sound quality from this card is amazing, love the design, very easy to use. The problem is the sound kept dropping out, i look at mixer and there audio playing back on the device but there is no sound coming out the outputs. After disconnecting then reconnecting the card it functions normally again, really annoying.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Muy buena! Es mi tercera tarjeta de sonido MOTU y en todos los casos estoy satisfecho! Tamao reducido y liviana.Prctica, fcil de instalar, se alimenta a travs de USB y no requiere transformador. Ideal para viajes. El sonido es muy bueno y gracias al software de su consola virtual no tiene latencia. A mejorar: La configuracin inicial es algo confusa. El volumen de auriculares es bajo. La conexin a iPad an no he podido probarla, pero est en mis planes hacerlo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far! I've had it for a few weeks now, and I love that it has so many available inputs/outputs for such a small device. I'll be using this interface to play live music for yoga classes w/guitar, voice, + ableton. I also use a midi keyboard, but I just run that through my computer's usb port. It's rugged and sturdy- I can throw it in my backpack and go!
