M-Audio Ships FireWire 1814 Interface

July 13, 2004

Announced at the Winter NAMM show in January, M-Audio's FireWire 1814 recording interface - the company's first FireWire interface with ADAT Lightpipe connectivity - is now shipping.

The FireWire 1814 is an 18-in, 14-out audio interface complete with MIDI, word clock, and a host of other features. The unit features 8 x 4 analog I/O (1/4") at up to 24-bit/96kHz. It also boasts 192kHz on the first two analog inputs and all four analog outputs. Channels 1 and 2 also include mic/instrument preamps with front-panel Neutrik jacks, gain controls, phantom power and pads. S/PDIF coaxial/optical digital I/O provides 2-channel PCM, as well as pass-through of surround-encoded AC-3 and DTS material. 8 x 8 ADAT Lightpipe I/O rounds out the 18 x 14 design. The Lightpipe connectivity can be used as either eight channels at 48kHz or four channels at 96kHz utilizing S/MUX support.

The unit's internal mixer allows input and output routing, including software routing to an aux send channel that can be used as either an effects send or as a monitor mix. It features a front-panel momentary switch with LED status indicator for direct monitoring on/off or A/B DJ-style pre-cueing. The FireWire 1814 also sports two headphone amplifiers with individually assigned sources from software and independent level controls, providing a great deal of monitoring flexibility for collaborative work. A front-panel rotary knob also affords real-time control of software-assignable outputs, inputs, software returns or aux send.

The rear panel of the FireWire 1814 also features two FireWire ports for easy connectivity, as well as a 15-pin connector for a breakout cable. This cable presents 1 x 1 MIDI I/O, coaxial S/PDIF, and BNC word clock connectors for synchronization with other digital devices such as M-Audio's new Octane preamp.

The FireWire 1814 is currently shipping at an MSRP of $749.95.
