Via an assortment of I/O, the Traveler-mk3 is 28-in/30-out capable, and that includes four microphone/XLR combo inputs. And the portable MOTU Traveller-mk3 FireWire interface can be powered via bus or optional battery power, for even more on-location flexibility. You can even use it as a standalone mixer complete with DSP-driven effects and the CueMix digital mixer. This Traveler-mk3 is ready for the road! On the back panel of the MOTU Traveler-mk3, there are the four mic/line combo inputs as well as four TRS analog inputs. Analog outputs include eight TRS 24-bit connectors. There are two optical banks, providing either 16 channels of AADAT at 48kHz, eight channels of S/MUX at 96kHz, or two banks of stereo TOSLink at up to 96kHz. The banks operate independently, so you can mix and match optical formats. RCA S/PDIF and XLR AES/EBU connectors are onboard, providing independent stereo digital I/O. There's also a 16-channel MIDI interface onboard. Use the MOTU Traveler-mk3's powerful DSP mixer as a recording/headphone-mix tool or as a portable digital mixer. Either way, you can take advantage of its mixing and effects processing, reverb, EQ, and compression for all 28 inputs. All I/O is routed to the onboard 16-bus (8 stereo) DSP-driven digital mixer with 32-bit floating point precision. You can apply no-latency effects processing to inputs, outputs, or busses, independently of the computer. And, you can record the signals wet, dry, or dry with a wet monitor mix to create an inspiring headphone mix. All of the mixer's settings can easily be accessed via the front panel, or you can launch the included CueMix FX control software in Mac OS X, Windows XP, or Windows Vista to take complete charge of the routing and effects via your computer. The Traveler-mk3 features MOTU's Direct Digital Synthesis clock, a high-quality, DSP-driven phase lock engine that produces imperceptibly low jitter characteristics, well below the overall noise floor. It also helps the Traveler-mk3 maintain a stable clock even while resolved to incoming clock sources that have substantially more jitter than the unit itself. Plus, the Traveler-mk3 can slave to SMPTE time code, without a dedicated synchronizer, via any analog input. Thanks to its DSP-driven phase-lock engine, it is capable of fast lockup times and sub-frame accuracy. Included SMPTE Console software provides a comprehensive set of tools to generate SMPTE for striping, regenerating, or slaving other devices to the computer.
