The MOTU 4pre is a capable and compact audio interface with four mic preamps and hands-on mixing.  It is the ideal live-recording interface for both studio and stage. 

The 4pre puts four mic inputs into an impressively small half-rack form factor, along with additional professional-grade audio connections. You can record and mix vocals plus guitar for two musicians simultaneously. Or mic a drum kit with overheads and close-ups. Or record lead and background vocals in one take. With an interface this flexible, capable, and great-sounding, you'll be ready for any situation your music throws at you.
