MIDI & Sync I/O
Combine MIDI with ADATs, Pro Tools, or video – the MOTU MIDI Timepiece AV USB takes the world-renowned MIDI Time Piece II and adds synchronization that you really need, like video genlock, ADAT sync, and word clock sync. Even Digidesign superclock!

Master & Slave
Slave ADATs, Digidesign hardware or word-clock compatible devices to SMTPE and video with the MOTU MIDI Timepiece AV USB. Drive your ADATs from your sequencer without an Alesis BRC, or control everything from an MMC controller like JL Cooper’s CuePoint. The MOTU MIDI Timepiece AV USB pulls it all together for stable, centralized, hassle-free synchronization and MIDI networking. The MOTU MIDI Timepiece AV USB works with Macintosh, Windows, and stand-alone setups.

Merger & Router
The MTP AV USB is also an 8×8 merger and router. You can merge any combinations of the eight inputs simultaneously to any combination of the eight outputs. Because the MTP AV’s internal memory can be programmed from the front panel,the MTP AV is the perfect choice for live performance applications where fast and flexible MIDI patching is essential. You can take the MTP AV USB on the road because it can operate with or without a computer. The MTP AV USB can be set to change scenes in response to patch changes, allowing remote control from any MIDI controller.

USB Interface
The MOTU MIDI Timepiece AV USB takes full advantage of USB, giving you increased MIDI throughput, better timing accuracy, support for “hot-swapping” and plug-and-play expansion. Need to connect another sound module or synth? No problem. Just add another MOTU USB MIDI interface via a standard USB hub.
