The new LIO-8 multichannel AD/DA converter, processor and interface is based on Metric Halo's ULN-8 technology platform.
The LIO-8 includes Metric Halo's 2d Signal Processing bundle of signal processing plug-ins as standard. The full +DSP plug-in suite can be added at any time via a software license (or can temporarily acquire a +DSP license while being used in a larger system with any other +DSP licensed unit).
Users can add ULN-R mic preamps to the LIO-8 after purchase in either 4 or 8-channel blocks. The LIO-8 can also be ordered with four or eight ULN-R preamps at the time of initial purchase.
With everything you need to record, mix, process and master audio (just add your DAW of choice, transducers and, if needed, preamps), the LIO-8 is a one-stop solution for editing, mixing and mastering suites. Even if you are using a DAW or recording system that does not support the LIO-8 FireWire interface, the unit's stand-alone operation and standard AES and analog interfaces allow you to use it as the audio front end and monitor controller for Pro Tools, stand-alone and PC-based recording systems.
The LIO-8 has an MSRP of U.S. $3,995, and is now available.
