The LP32 is a flexible ADAT optical "lightpipe" audio interface, router, splitter, converter and stand-alone mixer with AVB-TSN networking and connectivity to a host computer through class compliant, high-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0 and iOS). The LP32 provides four independent banks of 8-channel ADAT optical I/O, 64 channels of USB I/O, 32 channels of AVB-TSN network I/O and a headphone output, for a total of 258 simultaneous I/O channels. The unit supports the industry standard 4-channel SMUX format when operating at 88.2 or 96 kHz. At any sample rate, each input and output bank is individually switchable to stereo TOSLink (optical S/PDIF). A convenient, assignable front-panel headphone output with volume control allows for convenient monitoring of any stereo channel pair.

Housed in a sturdy aluminum alloy half-rack enclosure, the LP32 is ideal for routing optical digital audio streams in live performance systems, AVB-TSN network installations or recording studios of any size. Powerful DSP delivers large console style mixing with 48 channels, 12 stereo busses, and 32-bit floating point effects processing, including modeled analog EQ, vintage compression and classic reverb. Extensive routing patches ins to outs, or splits input channels to multiple destinations. Use the LP32 as a stand-alone mixer and control everything from the LP32's innovative web app running on an iPad™, iPhone™, tablet, smartphone, and laptop. Connect a second MOTU AVB-TSN interface with a simple Ethernet cable. Incorporate the LP32 into a larger AVB-TSN audio network with standard AVB-TSN switches and sub-millisecond latency, even over long cable runs. From studio to stage to corporate campus, the LP32 delivers flexible digital routing/conversion, state-of-the-art operation and reliable performance.
