The Mobile I/O 2882 Expanded is a best in class FireWire interface that provides 18 inputs and 20 outputs of comprehensive, simultaneous I/O. The 2882 Expanded is the only unit in its class with an on-board processing chip, allowing you to use world renowned Metric Halo signal processing effects without sacrificing your computer's processing power.This one rack space audio interface has the ability to run entirely from the FireWire bus of a laptop computer or from any DC power source (9V-30V), making it truly and completely mobile.
All Mobile I/Os have a SHARC DSP chip onboard that powers the versatile MIOConsole 80bit WIDE mixer, router, and control application. Use MIOConsole to route any input to any output, giving you more powerful mixing possibilities than any unit on the market. All channels have 24 bit, 96kHz converters, making this the perfect tool for digital recording.
With 8 channels of mic/line/instrument analog inputs (all with individually selectable mic preamps and discrete phantom power), 8 channels of ADAT® I/O, and stereo AES/EBU and S/PDIF I/O, the Mobile I/O 2882 is truly the strongest interface in a market cluttered with imitators.
Songwriters can record and edit on the road, in their hotel, on the airplane, or wherever the inspiration hits. Or use 3 2882's chained together for 24 tracks of live concert recording with processing on all channels in 3 rack spaces. Location sound engineers can now capture the moment– anywhere, anytime. When you're done recording, use the 2882 in the studio as an extremely high quality audio interface to transfer your tracks into a DAW.
