    9370 - Overview

    The LP32 is a flexible ADAT optical "lightpipe" audio interface, router, splitter, converter and mixer with AVB/TSN networking. It is ideal for routing optical digital audio in live performance systems, network installations or recording studios of any size. An included mounting bracket kit joins the LP32 side-by-side with any other MOTU half-rack unit to create a single rack-space configuration consisting of customized analog, digital and/or MIDI I/O configuration tailored just for you.

    The LP32 provides four independent banks of 8-channel ADAT optical I/O, 64 channels of USB I/O, 32 channels of AVB-TSN network I/O and a headphone output, for a total of 258 simultaneous I/O channels. New, optimized drivers for both Mac and PC deliver ultra-low latency performance. With a high-performance DAW such as Digital Performer, the LP32 delivers an astonishing round trip latency (RTL) of 1.70 ms (milliseconds) on OS X and 1.71 ms on Windows over USB (at 96 kHz with a 32-sample host buffer).

    Send any input to any output, or split to multiple output channels. Convert any format to any other (Optical, AVB-TSN and USB). Includes routing to and from the computer, plus any devices on the AVB-TSN network. Connect an Apple Airport or other Wi-Fi router with a standard Ethernet cable for wireless control of device settings, powerful 48-channel mixing and DSP effects.

    The LP32's 48-input digital mixer delivers 7 stereo aux busses, 3 groups, access to 64 network inputs, and DSP effects, including classic reverb, EQ modeled after British analog console EQs and compression modeled after the legendary LA-2A compressor. If you know your way around a large-format mixing console, you'll feel right at home. With 32-bit floating point processing, the LP32's DSP engine delivers virtually unlimited headroom and the utmost in sound quality.
