數位音樂人入門必備講座---MOTU介紹


MOTU長年在唱片製作、數位錄音等專業設備供應圈中扮演著重要且關鍵的角色,其優異的錄音品質與超高的取樣率,導致國內外專業的編曲師、工作室、錄音室以至於電影成音,都能看到MOTU硬碟錄音座的身影以及其數位的週邊設備與軟體平台。


MOTU 896 Series現今已進化至896mk3 (其上一代為896HD),除了延續其經典的錄音品質與低延遲性以外,這次的升級主要是加入了Standalone的數位效果器,以及更加數位化的硬體外部操控與官方DSP軟體操作介面的協同運作。 僅僅對於高品質錄音的需求者,若是您已擁有了896HD,則可以不用急著敗金升級,因為其聲音品質與頻譜特性與新一代的896mk3相差無幾。


MOTU 896 Series在業界的應用範圍極廣。在Pro Tools錄音系統壟斷橫行高階製作市場的今日,剩餘沒錢採購Pro Tools系統、或是堅持不被Pro Tools統一的錄音室/工作室、抑或是專業的Live Recording市場...有很大一部份的行家會選擇MOTU的896 Series來與Pro Tools匹敵。  像是周杰倫早期的錄音製作就曾是使用896HD做製作;Hollywood的電影成音有一部份使用Sony、Steinberg、Adobe等非Pro Tools系統的軟體就會搭配MOTU的音訊處理設備做電影成音或是5.1、7.1聲道製作;在高品質的音訊過帶備份市場中,也有時能見到896 Series的使用者以24 bit/192000Hz的高解度去做數位封存與備份。

J-7 Media Creative Co.的錄音室常年有使用MOTU 896 Series的經驗,除了唱片錄音、數位編曲、Live Recording、Mixing Studio Setting、電視劇戶外收音等專業應用經驗,尚有待售MOTU的全系列設備,並提供專業的設備諮詢與系統建置服務,並有專責研究與測試的部門從事該公司的數位設備與時下專業的NLE (影像非線性剪輯軟體)、DAW (數位音樂工作站)軟體平台之系統建置、相容性測試與疑難排除(troubleshooting)。



以下為官方網站提供之資訊,如果看得有點頭昏眼花,就請轉台吧!等你長大再說啦!

MOTU 896mk3 :
896mk3 Overview
The all new 896mk3 FireWire audio interface delivers high-end performance, superb sound, innovative new features and enhanced standard features that remain unique.

The 896mk3 provides eight channels of pristine 24-bit 192 kHz analog recording and playback, combined with sixteen channels of optical digital I/O, stereo AES/EBU, S/PDIF and separate analog main outs. Expand your system by connecting the 8pre mic input expander or other MOTU audio interfaces.

The 896mk3 is equally well-suited for studio and stage, with or without a computer. As an interface or standalone mixer, the 896mk3 provides 28 separate inputs and 32 separate outputs, including dedicated main outs on XLRs and two front panel headphone outs.

Connect all of your studio gear, including microphones, guitars, synths, keyboards, drum machines and even effects processors. Record, monitor, route and process all of these live inputs using the professional on-board CueMix FX digital mixer – with no latency and no processor strain on your computer. Apply hardware DSP-driven effects processing to inputs, outputs, and busses independent of your host computer. Add Classic Reverb™ with lengths up to 60 seconds. Further sculpt your sound with 7-band parametric EQ featuring filter types carefully modeled after British analog console EQs. Choose between two forms of compression: a conventional compressor and the Leveler™, an accurate model of the legendary LA-2A™ optical compressor that provides vintage, musical automatic gain control.

When recording from the mic/guitar inputs, the 896mk3’s signal overload protection gives you an extra 12 dB of headroom above zero with no clipping or harsh artifacts.

After programming the on-board mixing in the studio, unplug the 896mk3 from the computer and take it on the road for operation as a stand-alone mixer with effects. All mixing and effects parameters are adjustable using the front panel backlit LCD.

The 896mk3 provides cross-platform compatibility with Mac and Windows and all of your favorite audio software and host-based effects via WDM/ASIO/Core Audio drivers. Or you can use the included AudioDesk workstation software for Mac, with 24-bit recording/editing and 32-bit mixing/processing/mastering.
