    Equipped with renowned ESS Sabre32™ DAC technology, the 624 packs the same superb analog audio quality and proven, award-winning performance as MOTU's flagship 1248 audio interface into a sturdy, mobile half-rack enclosure.

    With 32 channels of audio I/O (16 ins and 16 outs), the 624 connects to any computer or iPad™ with Thunderbolt™, super-speed USB 3.0 or AVB Ethernet. Class-compliant firmware and new optimized MOTU drivers work with any audio apps, delivering industry-leading, ultra-low round-trip latency (RTL) performance as low as 1.6ms at 96kHz over Thunderbolt with high-performance DAW hosts.

    Powerful DSP delivers large console style mixing with 48 channels, 12 stereo busses, and 32-bit floating point effects processing, including modeled analog EQ, vintage compression and classic reverb. Extensive routing patches ins to outs, or splits inputs to multiple destinations. Use the 624 as a stand-alone mixer and control everything over Wi-Fi with an innovative web app running on your iPad™, iPhone™, tablet, smartphone and laptop.

    Connect a second AVB-equipped MOTU interface with a simple Ethernet cable. Add more I/O with the MOTU AVB Switch (sold separately). From studio to stage, the 624 delivers exceptional sound quality, state-of-the-art operation and rock-solid performance.
