The MOTU 24I/O Core Computer Recording System provides 24 high quality, 24-bit/96kHz analog TRS I/O in a cost effective, single rack space package. This rackmount MOTU audio interface allows you to connect and record from 24 simultaneous analog sources.

The front panel is a dedicated meter bridge for your hard disk recording system displaying audio activity for every I/O with its own 5-segment LED bar graph. I/O can be operated at -10dB or +4dB. The input level can be switched via software in banks of 8 inputs. In addition, CueMix DSP provides continuously variable input trim with up to 12dB boost per channel. The rear panel also provides Word Clock I/O.

AudioWire high-bandwidth digital audio format is capable of carrying up to 24 channels of 96kHz digital audio in and out of the computer at the same time.

The included PCI-424 card features a powerful DSP chip dedicated to creating a custom tailored monitor mix of up to 96 channels of 96kHz audio. Because the mixing takes place on the card itself the system provides the same near-zero latency performance as today's latest digital mixers. You can connect up to 4 audio interfaces to a PCI-424 in any combination to create a system that fits your needs.

The Cuemix DSP software allows you to mix multiple channels into multiple mix buses or directly assigned outputs. Manage your monitor mix with the intuitive CueMix Console software included with the 24I/O. It provides independent level and pan controls for each input on every mix. You can configure a unique mix for every physical stereo output you have available.

Older legacy MOTU Audiowire interfaces (2408, 2408mkII, 1224, 308, 24i, 1296) are fully compatible with the PCI-424. Even the new Cuemix DSP and synchronization features can be used with legacy interfaces.

Includes the PCI-424 card and Audiodesk workstation software.

Great Piece of Gear

By Bob Cross

See all my reviews

Comments about MOTU 24I/O Core Computer Recording System PCI:

Being a drummer or studio engineer requiring over 16 tracks, clearly this is the piece to build your studio around. It works so well with ProTools, you may think it were made by Avid. 96k is way up there when it comes to fidelity however I find most sessions track in 48k quite well, using less memory in the rig. I couldn't be happier.
24 TRS in and out is just what I needed
Best sounding A/D converter I own. I don't own any of the super expensive converters because the difference in cost allows me to build other aspects of my studio, like having nicer mics, monitors and UA and waves plugs for my ProTools 9 rig. Never experienced a problem with the gear that wasn't operator error.
decent price 24 in and 24 out through a card that relieves some of the processing burden on my Mac is as good as it gets.

Awesome system, just takes some getting used to

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about MOTU 24I/O Core Computer Recording System PCI:

If you're accustomed to using Cubase, this is an awesome package. It sounds great, and it's pretty easy to use, so long as you're pretty fluent in the software you're using. This beats the price point of the Digidesign products hands down, you'd spend close to $10K for a Digidesign 24 track system, so for the MOTU & Cubase you can't go wrong, unless of course you're not really computer savvy, in which case you might find this system somewhat challenging. But for around eight grand of a difference I think you could get some homework motivation going & also score yourself a well priced mixer and still save a lot of cash. The only negative point is the fact the MOTU uses a legacy PCI if you're expecting to drop this into an Intel Mac you're out of luck (they're using PCI Express cards, which are NOT the same)...hint-hint to the MOTU company people...get up with the times!

    The 24io works great with my Adobe Audition software. Easy setup and install, this is the unit I have needed all along. No syncing multiple units to get the number of tracks you need and takes up very little CPU power from my it!
