MOTU Traveler-MK3 Firewire Audio Interface

The MOTU Traveler MK3 is a portable bus-powered interface specifically engineered for mobile recording duties. The interface provides four pristine preamps, bus power, DSP effects processing, and optional battery power. Additionally, the Traveler MK3 provides eight channels of 192kHz analog recording alongside twenty channels of digital I/O via ADAT optical, S/PDIF, and AES/EBU. 

Equally suited for remote applications, studio, or stage duties, the Traveler MK3 can work in tandem with or independently from a computer. Either way, it grants access to 28 individual inputs and 30 separate outputs, complete with digital trim controls and 48V Phantom Power switches. 

In terms of effects, the Traveler MK3 boasts classic reverb extending up to 60 seconds, a 7-band parametric EQ, and two distinct forms of compression. The first compressor is more conventional, while the latter is modeled after the LA-2A optical compressor. 

Traveler-MK3 Features

  • Sturdy, lightweight construction
  • Compact size
  • Powered by computer (bus power requires a non-adapted 6-pin FireWire port
  • 28 inputs/30 outputs (at 44.1/48kHz)
  • Mic inputs, TRS analog, AES/EBU, RCA S/PDIF, and phones are all handled as separate channels
  • Four combo jacks provide Hi-Z 1/4" guitar input or low-Z XLR mic input with transparent preamps, phantom power, pad, and plenty of gain
  • Clip protection up to +12dB over zero
  • Individual 48V phantom power on each mic input
  • Four 24-bit 192kHz analog inputs and 8 analog outputs on balanced/unbalanced 1/4" TRS jacks
  • Digital Precision Trim lets you adjust input gain in 1dB increments on all analog inputs, fine-tune the balance, and save and recall multiple trim setups
  • High-resolution recording: operate all analog I/O at sample rates up to 192kHz
  • Flexible optical I/O allows you to mix and match formats between the two banks
  • CueMix FX offers flexible 28 input/16 bus mixer with on-board DSP effects, including classic reverb with sends/returns, plus modeled EQ and vintage compression on every input and output
