Audi Interface

The MOTU Ultralite-MK5 is the latest incarnation of the best-selling UltraLite series (replacing the UltraLite-mk4). It takes the winning formula of the half-rack form factor with 18 in x 22 out analog and digital I/O and adds state-of-the-art enhancements at the same great price.
New Design - while retaining the same front and back panel layout as its predecessors the UltraLite-mk5 has a sleek new look, incorporating a high-resolution.
Connectivity and Compatibility- the UltraLite-mk5 has a USB-C connector and is also class-compliant for operation with iOS devices.
New Software and Simplified Monitoring - live monitoring of inputs is controlled via the new CueMix™5 software
Rack-mount options - a half-rack mounting kit (sold separately) allows the steel-encased UltraLite-mk5 to be rack-mounted with thick steel brackets to withstand the punishment of touring.
