Like all MOTU interfaces, the 828es aluminum alloy chassis is lightweight, yet incredibly sturdy and durable, and designed to withstand the rigors of the studio, stage, and tour bus. In a world awash with cheap plastic, the solid feeling of the 828es metal exterior in your hands is a reassuring reminder that you are holding quality engineering and construction. The engineering behind the 828es runs deep to give your audio recordings the depth of quality they deserve. Two banks of optical: Two optical banks provide 16 channels of ADAT optical at 48 kHz, 8 channels of S/MUX optical I/O at 96 kHz or two banks of stereo TOSLink (optical S/PDIF) at rates up to 96 kHz. Each optical input and output operates independently, allowing you to mix and match any optical formats, in and out.MIDI I/O: Connect MIDI gear without the need for a separate MIDI interface. Time code support: Dedicated time code input and output jacks. Converts SMPTE time code (LTC) to MIDI Time Code (MTC) and passes MTC on to any MTC-compatible host software. DC-coupled TRS outputs: Use the 828es to manipulate sequence voltage-controlled modular synthesizers from a host DAW.
Balanced analog: 828es balanced I/O connections are well-protected against RF interference, AC hum, and other noise-producing environmental factors. S/PDIF digital I/O: Stereo digital transfers are an essential fact of daily studio life. The 828es's standard RCA S/PDIF input and output make stereo digital transfers a snap, with optional external clocking and support for sample rates up to 96kHz.Or map the pedal to any keystroke function in your host software. Direct Digital Synthesis (DDS): DSP-driven phase lock engine and internal clock source produces imperceptibly low jitter characteristics (below the noise floor), even when the 828es is resolved to an external clock source via SMPTE time code. Two headphone jacks: Each headphone output can be programmed with the same or different mixes, with independent front-panel volume control. Audio analysis tools: Includes an oscilloscope, real-time FFT, X-Y Plot, and graphic phase analysis.
