Metric Halo Mobile I/O 2882 Expanded +DSP
FireWire Audio Interface with Integrated 2d Card and +DSP License for Mac

OUR PART #  MIO2882-EXP+DSP


Metric Halo's 2882 is the first and only FireWire interface to offer onboard, fully instantiable DSP processing with their unique +DSP processing environment.  The 2882 is also the first 96k FireWire interface, and the first to feature digitally-controlled analog stages.

NOTE: This version of Metric Halo's Mobile I/O 2882 comes with their +DSP License.

The 2882's inputs and outputs, coupled with Metric Halo's exclusive Character processing, provide flexibility and sound quality unavailable on any other interface.  You can transition from a wire-with-gain to a gooey tube pre with one click of the mouse, and every input can have the right character for the material you are recording.

The 2882 Expanded is the only unit in its class with an on-board processing engine that supports fully instantiable processing, allowing you to use Metric Halo's world-renowned signal processing effects without sacrificing your computer's processing power or introducing any additional latency in your monitor path.  From MIOStrip to HaloVerb, the 2882 Expanded comes with all the basic production processing you need.  This 1 RU 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 completely mobile.

A unique feature of the Mobile I/O system is that MIO's work well individually or as a group.  Mix and match 2882 and ULN-2 units to create a system that meets your needs for track count and preamp power.  Adding a unit to the system organically increases the DSP power of the system, so that your DSP always scales with your I/O.  Break your system up for small gigs when playing out or add the units of your mates to build a huge system when required.  By standardizing on Mobile I/O, each member of the band can have ultimate quality while working alone, and the band can have huge track counts when playing together.

Flexible signal routing and sophisticated patch and preset management systems are also featured in the 2882 Expanded, including two separately addressable boot states for standalone operation.  2882's front-panel recall system allows the unit to function equally as well as a stand-alone Mic Pre/Converter system.  In standalone mode, the 2882 operates with the converters directly routed to and from the AES/SPDIF I/O, ADAT or TOSLINK.

As a standalone converter, the 2882 provides a 24bit/96kHz stereo front-end with 8 great sounding utility mic pres for any recording system.  It also functions seamlessly as a digital monitor controller, making it ideal as digital headphone amp and studio monitor controller.

The 2882 Expanded supports a variety of applications.  For studio recording, it provides a very high quality interface to a DAW, offering sound processing or simple file transfer between workstations.  Its exceptional sound quality is the perfect complement to the studio's existing analog to digital conversion chain.

The 2882 Expanded is suitable for broadcast applications, too.  It offers instant playback of two individual stereo sends for music cues or sound effects.  The compact package and portable power features mean that the unit can go anywhere users need to work, and make on-site fixes or edit location recordings without the need to send files back to the studio, saving valuable time before air.

In the live performance arena, in addition to operating as a remote recorder for archiving performances or to play out backing tracks and musical cues, the 2882 Expanded can operate as a soft-synth mixer and I/O interface.  The 2882 Expanded is also a great addition to a live sound engineer’s setup, providing a simple and efficient tool for analysis and system venue tuning with SpectraFoo.

Now a standard part of all Mobile I/O units, the 2d Card is a massive DSP processing engine that is the nerve center of the 2882 Expanded.  The 2d Card greatly enhances the DSP processing power of the Mobile I/O and provides brand new ADAT implementation based upon the technology developed by Alesis to provide rock-solid reliable ADAT interfacing.

Features:

  • 8 Mic/Line/Instrument analog inputs
  • 8 analog outputs on balanced TRS connectors
  • 24/96k converters on all channels
  • 8 channels of ADAT I/O (switchable to TOSLINK)
  • Headphone amp with front panel mute/dim
  • Full front-panel metering
  • Remote level control on all channels
  • AES-S/PDIF Digital I/O with selectable SRC
  • v.5 Configurable mixer for near-zero latency mixing and routing
  • Metric Halo’s unique instantiable +DSP processing
  • DC power system for wall, FireWire bus, and battery operation world-wide
  • Total recall with MIO Console
  • OS X drivers with multi-box support
