MOTU 828es Rack-Mount Audio Interface - 28-in/32-out

Used in countless studios around the world, MOTU are renowned for their range of incredible professional audio interfaces. As the newcomer to the series, the 828es boasts a wealth of impressive features and functions that arguably make it the best yet!


The 828es borrows from aspects of the legendary AVB series, taking the crystalline audio quality and advanced networking and control technologies from those models and combining them with the trademark ‘828’ formula of multiple analogue and digital I/Os and a single unit 19” rack-mounting design.

It features a number of significant improvements over its predecessors – the inclusion of ESS Sabre32 DAC technology, dual full-colour LCDs and both USB 2 and Thunderbolt connectivity, offering ultra-low latency. With 28 inputs, 32 outputs, 48-channel mixing and 32-bit floating point DSP effects processing – including Classic Reverb, modelled analogue EQ, and vintage compression modelled after the legendary LA-2A – this is an interface with a wholly impressive resume.


Among the myriad of inputs are 2 highly-flexible ‘combination’ XLR/Jack ports, designed specifically for guitars and microphones. These provide transparent preamps with remote control for individual gain/pad/48V phantom power and amp-like hi-Z guitar input.

A built-in talkback mic with front-panel ‘Talk’ button and‘A/B’ speaker select buttons further enhance the functionality of the interface, allowing for engineers operating the interface to communicate directly with singers and performers in the booth – a feature usually reserved for only the most premium priced interfaces and mixers.


The 828es offers incredible expanded connectivity thanks to an AVB port which allows additional I/O options such as MADI or AES/EBU to be added effortlessly to the system via an Ethernet cable.

Flexible matrix-style routing and splitting, standalone mixing with Wi-Fi control, pre-converter mic channel sends, dedicated time code I/O and bundled AudioDesk workstation software complete this unbelievable package, making the 828es a true force to be reckoned with!


It is a 19” unit designed to fit in a single rack space, so despite its incredible power and functionality, it won’t take up valuable studio space.
