Latest version of an interface that's become a modern classic. Up to 18 audio inputs and 22 outputs in total, spread over a mixture of analogue and digital connections. A true all-rounder that's hard to beat.

Supplier's Notes:
The MOTU UltraLite-mk5 is the latest incarnation of the best-selling UltraLite series (replacing the UltraLite-mk4). It takes the winning formula of the half-rack form factor with 18 in x 22 out analog and digital I / O and adds state-of-the-art enhancements at the same great price :

Best-in-class Audio Quality - the UltraLite-mk5 includes renowned ESS Sabre32 DAC technology, featuring the ES9026PRO DAC, to deliver 125dB dynamic range and -114 dB THD+N.

Ultra-low Latency - optimised Drivers for both Mac and PC deliver ultra-low latency performance. With a high-performance DAW the UltraLite-mk5 delivers an astonishing round-trip latency of 2.4ms (at 96kHz with a 32-sample host buffer

New Design - while retaining the same front and back panel layout as its predecessors the UltraLite-mk5 has a sleek new look, incorporating a high-resolution, high-contrast white OLED display providing precision metering for all analog inputs and outputs, along with digital I / O activity indicators and status info

Connectivity and Compatibility- the UltraLite-mk5 has a USB-C connector and is also class-compliant for operation with iOS devices. It is also compatible with MacOS 11 Big Sur and M1 Macs

New Software and Simplified Monitoring - live monitoring of inputs is controlled via the new CueMix 5 software

Rack-mount options - a half-rack mounting kit (sold separately) allows the steel-encased UltraLite-mk5 to be rack-mounted with thick steel brackets to withstand the punishment of touring. Alternatively, two UltraLite-mk5 units can be joined together with a Half-rack Coupler Kit (sold separately)
