Every so often, a product comes along and changes things up for those that follow. It only makes sense that this innovation would come from longstanding pioneers in recording technology, Neumann.

The Neumann MT-48 Desktop Interface

The new MT-48 interface was designed in collaboration with Merging Technologies and seems to have been partly inspired by the Anubis interface which was launched a few years back. With a similar-looking form factor and touchscreen interface, the MT-48 offers the same AES67/RAVENNA support via Ethernet.

From the offset, the MT-48 is a 32-bit 192 kHz USB interface with 12 inputs and 16 outputs. DSP processing features provide you with dynamics and EQ processing on every channel as well as reverb.

The digital mixer is easy to operate via the touchscreen interface, and the dual output technology allows simultaneous Pre and Post-FX recording.

On the front panel, the MT-48 has two independent headphones outs and a pair of line/instrument inputs for easy access. In addition, connectivity on the rear panel includes ADAT / S/PDIF Optical I/O, Ethernet, and GPIO / MIDI I/O.

What’s more, there are two separate USB-C ports for power and data transfer respectively. Overall, the MT-48 offers versatility with a compact design and built-in mic stand mount. Meanwhile, you’re surely getting what you’re paying for as far as audio quality goes.

    Love it! I’m not in the market for an interface currently, but that’s pretty much what I’d be looking for if I were.

    Who is this meant for? $2000 for an interface with very few I/O, unremarkable specifications and some silly features that aren’t useful to anyone serious about mixing.

    I can’t think of a less useful or intuitive way to adjust an EQ than with a laggy, tiny touch screen. UAD are starting to smarten up and move away from SHARC chips because they’ve been outdated for the last 7 years and can’t compete with peoples desire for native plugins. Even this, the DSP on this doesn’t compete with UAD’s, it offers nothing new.

    This is more expensive than an RME Fireface but worse in every measurable way. I just don’t understand the demographic at all. This is an $800 interface at absolute maximum. When you’re in the high end price category with decidedly average anything, who are you expecting to buy this?

    So basically an Audient id24 with a gimmicky screen that no one will use over their regular mouse, but for over four times the cost? Yeah, no thanks.

    This is being improperly marketed as an interface. Actually it’s a full featured digital audio mixer, with expandable I/O that can be controlled remotely …that also functions as an interface. Similar mixers are in the same price range. The original Anubis this is based on is priced at over $2,000.

    It’s a rebrand, to call things their name

    the Apple kind of marketing is not good for all device
    agressive price just to show a silly prestige won’t permit the brand to compete with others company. you need to think twice cause you have much more music creator and interfaces users than before … with 500$ they would made more money than with their 2K$ .
