MOTU Track 16. Simple operation. Clean design. Studio-grade sound quality.



Simple, elegant and professional

Make world-class recordings with style and ease

Simple operation. Clean design. Studio-grade sound quality. Track16 exhibits these design principles through and through. And don’t let its compact size deceive you. 

There’s plenty of I/O available for a well-equipped personal studio, ready for multi-player recording sessions. Track16’s pristine mic preamps, balanced line-level audio connections, and renowned MOTU engineering deliver world-class audio quality.



An astonishing array of inputs and outputs

Record two mics, two guitars, a keyboard, a sound module, and eight optical channels simultaneously


How can such a compact unit offer 16 channels of input and 14 channels of output, simultaneously, with mixing? 
The short answer: Track16 truly is an engineering achievement, packing the same quantity and quality of audio channels as other interfaces that cost hundreds more.
