    LP32 Feature Summary

    32 channels of ADAT optical “lightpipe” audio

    Four independent banks of 8-channel ADAT optical at 44.1 or 48 kHz or 4-channel SMUX (16 channels total) at 88.2 or 96 kHz.

    Support for TOSLink

    Each optical input or output is individually switchable to stereo TOSLink (optical S/PDIF), regardless of the current sample rate setting (from 44.1 to 96 kHz).

    Flexible router, converter and splitter

    Send any input to any output, or split to multiple output channels. Convert any format to any other (Optical, AVB-TSN and USB). Includes routing to and from the computer, plus any devices on the AVB-TSN network.

    Stand-alone operation with wireless control

    Connect a standard Wi-Fi router with a standard Ethernet cable for wireless control of device settings, routing/splitting, powerful 48-channel mixing and DSP effects.

    DSP mixing and effects processing

    Flexible 48-input digital mixer with 7 stereo aux busses, 3 stereo groups, access to 32 network inputs, and DSP effects, including reverb, 4-band EQ, gate and compression.

    Ultra-low latency and proven, high-performance MOTU drivers

    Universal connectivity over high-speed USB 2.0 (3.0 and iOS compatible) and AVB. Renowned drivers deliver industry-leading low latency and rock solid performance.

    Comprehensive metering

    The full-color LCD lets you view all signal activity at a glance with detailed metering for all I/O. Access hardware settings from a simple and convenient menu.

    Convenient headphone monitoring

    Assignable front-panel headphone output with volume control allows for monitoring of any stereo channel pair.

    Word clock I/O

    Standard word clock input and output for resolving to other digital audio gear or house sync.

    32-bit floating point processing

    The LP32's mixing and effects DSP engine delivers virtually unlimited headroom and the utmost in sound quality.

    Modeled vintage effects processing

    Classic reverb. Compression modeled after the legendary LA-2A compressor. EQ modeled after British analog console EQs.

    AVB-TSN audio networking

    Build a network with multiple interfaces and computers using standard AVB-TSN switches and network cabling, with ultra-low network latency, even over long cable runs (100 meters point to point). Stream hundreds of audio channels among devices and computers on the network.

    Audio analysis tools

    Includes a full-screen real-time FFT display, spectrogram “waterfall” display, full-featured oscilloscope, X-Y plot and phase analyzer.


    Includes AudioDesk workstation software for Mac and Windows with 24-bit recording, sample-accurate editing and 32-bit mixing and mastering.
