When you’re done recording, use the 2882 in the studio as an extremely high quality audio interface to transfer your tracks into a DAW. You’ll be amazed at the sound of this little box! And weighing only 5 pounds, and about the size of a laptop, you can be the first one out of the gig, with no hassle, just throw the Mobile I/O into your computer bag, and you’re done!

 

 

The 2882’s pristine 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. And remember, this one rack space 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 truly and completely mobile.

Organically Scalable:

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. You can’t lose!

Stand-alone Operation:

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.
