This used Motu 2408 MK3 Interface has been modified by Black Lion Audio and comes with a Power Cable.
This interface has been modified by Black Lion Audio, improving the analog inputs and outputs to significantly increase the sound quality. This interface is in very good condition with normal cosmetic wear, has been fully tested, and works great. Please see pictures for details on item condition. Only what is pictured is included.
We recommend checking with the manufacturer for the latest operating system and hardware compatibility before purchasing this item.
The 2408mk3 provides 8 channels of pristine 96kHz analog recording and playback, combined with 24 channels of ADAT and Tascam digital I/O - the most ever offered in a single rack space audio interface. Connect up to four interfaces to the PCI-424 card (not included) for an expanded system capable of 96 simultaneous active input and output connections at 96kHz.
The 2408mk3 is ideal for both the computer-based studio with no mixing board and more elaborate studios built around a digital mixer of any size.
Connect all of your studio gear, including synths, keyboards, and even effects processors. Then control it all from your desktop with no audible monitoring latency and no processor drain on your computer. With 24 channels of digital I/O, the 2408 is ideal for connecting your computer to a digital mixer. Both ADAT lightpipe and Tascam TDIF digital connections are supported at any sample rate up to 96kHz.
And here's another 2408mk3 first: built-in video and SMPTE synchronization. Slave your entire workstation directly to video or SMPTE time code with sub-frame accuracy without a dedicated synchronizer. The 2408mk3 provides cross-platform compatibility with Macintosh, Windows 98SE/Me/2K/XP and all of your favorite audio software and host-based effects via WDM/ASIO/Sound Manager drivers.
- 8 TRS analog Inputs, 8 TRS analog outputs
- 3 sets of Tascam TDIF 8-channel in/out each
- 3 sets of Adat Lightpipe Optical 8-channel in/outs

Please Note: A PCI card is required to use this interface and is not included.
Black Lion Modification
The MOTU 2408 Mk3 modification includes the following changes to the Analog Inputs and Outputs:
- New, high performance op-amp upgrade on analog inputs to ensure better signal quality leading up to the A/D conversion stage
- New, high performance op-amp upgrade on the analog outputs to ensure better signal quality from the D/A conversion stage to the outputs
Improving the performance of the analog stage circuits makes a drastic difference for tracking, mixing, and mastering (expect amazing micro-dynamics and space)!
