The Mobile I/O ULN-2 is a best in class FireWire interface that provides 4 inputs and 8 outputs of comprehensive, simultaneous I/O, 24/96kHz A/D/A conversion with two channels of Ultra Low Noise preamps (72dB of gain with an E.I.N. of –130.5dBu), two channels of digital I/O as AES and S/PDIF, balanced send/return path, and individual monitor and headphone outputs, each with front panel level control.
The ULN-2+DSP is the only unit in its class with an on-board processing chip, allowing you to use world renowned Metric Halo signal processing effects without sacrificing your computer's processing power.This one rack space audio interface has the ability to run entirely from the FireWire bus of a laptop computer or from any DC power source (9V-30V), making it truly and completely mobile.
ULN-2 is the perfect tool for capturing audio wherever inspiration hits, in the studio or on the road. Well suited to any recording situation, the ULN mic preamps provide exceptional detail and an ultra-fast slew rate. Fully balanced analog inserts on TRS connectors allow outboard analog dynamics processing to be introduced between the mic pres and the A/D converters. Wordclock I/O and 4-pin XLR power port (for use with typical broadcast camera batteries) complete the rear panel connections of this highly portable device.
All Mobile I/Os have a SHARC DSP chip onboard that powers the versatile MIOConsole 80bit WIDE mixer, router, and control application. Use MIOConsole to route any input to any output, giving you more powerful mixing possibilities than any unit on the market. All channels have 24 bit, 96kHz converters, making this the perfect tool for digital recording. Add even more power to your rig with +DSP, Metric Halo's revolutionary approach to taking your processing plugins with you to rehearsals, the big show, or to the studio.
