Building upon the experience gained with the Mobile I/O 2882 and ULN-2, MHset out to design an integrated product to literally provide the best performance in each of its component sections while still providing all of the benefits of tight integration in a single field-capable package. The ULN-8 is the result of that development program.
The ULN-8 incorporates a number of new Metric Halo Audio technologies including:
192k sample rate support for both Analog and AES Inputs and Outputs
New DC-coupled, zero phase distortion, servo balanced Line Inputs and Outputs
ULN-R next generation remote controlled preamp technology. The Mic Pres in the ULN-8 build upon the audio performance pioneered by the ULN-2 preamp design with the additional benefit and technological innovation of full clickless remote control of the ULN Mic pre. This is accomplished with a sophisticated gain switching mechanism which incorporates Metric Halo "zero-cross" technology.
Fully clickless remote controlled Monitor outputs. All ULN-8 analog outputs incorporate Metric Halo clickless remote technology allowing for flexible monitoring applications from stereo to 7.1 surround.

With everything you need to record, mix, process, and master audio (just add your DAW of choice and transducers), the ULN-8 is your one-stop solution for recording, edit, mix and mastering suites. Even if you are using a DAW or recording system that does not support the ULN-8 Firewire interface, the unit’s standalone operation and standard AES and analog interface allow you to use it as the Audio Front End and Monitor Controller for Pro Tools, standalone and PC based recording systems.
The ULN-8 Starts Where Other Interfaces End
All these features make for an impressive package, but we're just beginning. The ULN-8 is built around Metric Halo's 2d DSP platform, giving you the power to run multiple mixers and plug-ins inside the box. It also includes a full +DSP license, giving you the ability to create powerful mixing, sound design and master plug-ins. Beauty and brains, in 1RU.
