The Neumann MT 48 introduces Neumann’s impeccable quality standards to the digital workflow. It is the first audio interface in its class designed to capture the full dynamic range of Neumann’s legendary studio microphones. Furthermore, it is optimized for use with the KH-Line of studio monitors and Neumann headphones. This is the piece that pulls together your signal chain ensuring uncompromising audio quality from when the signal hits the microphone diaphragm to when you hear in your mix!

Neumann and Merging Technologies at its finest

The MT 48 was developed in close cooperation with the Swiss manufacturer Merging Technologies, whose high-precision AD converters offer a staggering dynamic range of 136 dB. This gives the MT 48 four times the resolution of comparable audio interfaces.

The MT 48 comes fully equipped for the reference-class personal studio: two extremely low-noise mic/line preamps with up to 78 dB gain, two line/instrument inputs, four monitor/line outputs and two superb headphone outputs, each with state-of-the-art AD/DA converters. The MT 48’s connectivity may be expanded via ADAT / S/PDIF and AES67; a MIDI interface is also integrated. Four separate monitor mixes can be controlled directly on the unit via touchscreen. On-board processing includes a fully parametric 4-band EQ and a 3-way dynamics processor (gate/compressor/limiter) per channel as well as a high-quality reverb. So musicians get inspiring sound for top performances. And there is still plenty of DSP power for future developments.


The MT 48 is an audio interface and digital mixing desk in one. You can use its DSP processing for monitoring only, or you can print effects while recording. Or both at the same time! Thanks to the unique Dual Output Technology, wet and dry signals can be recorded simultaneously via separate driver channels. So, if necessary, you can fall back on an unprocessed backup.


Despite its enormous scope of features, the MT 48 always remains easy to operate. All settings can be made on the device itself via the built-in touchscreen. The perfect monitor mix is just a touch away! Simply use your fingers to adjust pan pots, channel faders and much more, without having to switch to a mixer software on your computer. The MT 48 can even be operated stand-alone as a mixing console.

The MT 48 leaves nothing to be desired: audio quality at the highest level, built-in DSP processing, comprehensive expandability, and convenient operation via touchscreen. The MT 48 is the missing link in the Neumann universe, connecting microphones, loudspeakers and headphones to create the perfect studio.
