The UltraLite Mk4 is quite an interesting and original looking audio interface which offers some high-end functionality. Observing the rear panel we find that there is a host of analog inputs and outputs.
This exceptional device was created for work both on the stage and in the studio. With that said, it’s also suitable for mobile sound recording. You can connect keyboards and synths, stage monitors, auxiliary and main speakers, MIDI modules, onboard and outboard gear, even home theaters – and of all these at the same time!
Apart from the many impressive features of the UltraLite Mk4, there is also the exceptional sound quality it offers. Should you wish, there is also the ability to wireless control the device which makes for a pleasurable user experience. The Mk4 offers ultra-low latency too (1.83 ms) thanks to its optimized drivers.
On the front panel you will find several knobs and toggle switches to control sound quality and channel volumes. This interface can be powered with a special adapter, or with FireWire 400.
MOTU UltraLite Mk4 provides excellent quality all round. The sound is crystal clear with no crackle or hiss during recording and mixing.
From studio to stage, the UltraLite-mk4 delivers exceptional sound quality, ultra-low latency drivers, state-of-the-art operation and rock-solid performance.
Also if necessary, the device can be used as a standalone recording station, so there’s no need to connect it to a computer, which is great for live sessions and performances.
