Metric Halo Mobile I/O 2882 Overview

  • 1Description

The Metric Halo 2882 3d is a USB Type-C audio interface offering eight preamps, digital I/O, DSP-powered mixing, and software control for musicians, engineers, and producers in studios and mobile setups. Its integrated dual-core DSP powers a variety of plug-ins—the included DSP+ license unlocks over 100 of them—without burdening your computer's CPU. Robust software ensures easy access to multitrack recording, mixing, monitoring, and more.

The 2882 3d's eight microphone preamps are fed by four XLR mic inputs and four 1/4" instrument/line inputs. All eight preamps feature phantom power, switchable impedance, and -20 dB pads accessible on a per-channel basis via the MH Console software. Analog outputs include eight 1/4" line outs and a 1/4" headphone jack, which is affected by the front-panel mute and dim functions. Properly synchronize with other digital equipment through the BNC word clock connectors, or consolidate audio, clock, and data I/O with other 3d-equipped Metric Halo interfaces via the MH Link ports.

The pre-installed MH EdgeCard provides stereo AES3 and S/PDIF I/O in addition to the 2882 3d's standard eight-channel ADAT optical ports. The interface's front panel is packed with comprehensive metering and status indicators, showing vital information at a glance. The 2882 3d connects to a compatible Mac, Windows, iOS, or Linux device via the supplied USB Type-A to USB Type-C cable.
