I just came back from AES Convention. There were ads in the Daily Paper for MOTU's new "Traveler" interface. There are pictures and all the specs in the ads. It looks promising...but I cant find a thing about it on the internet!...anyone know anything?
Slide the Traveler into your briefcase or bag, alongside your laptop, and you've got a complete audio recording system - to go. At an incredibly efficient 9 watts, the Traveler draws power directly from your computer via FireWire, with no AC or DC power required. So you can record anywhere at sample rates up to 192kHz.
For extended remote recording. the Taveler can be powered by a standard battery pack. The Traveler is packed with industry leading features, impeccable audio quality, steadfast reliability and broad compatibility.
Your studio-to-go is ready - no power cords attached!
