Mark of the Unicorn (MOTU)
Headquarters: Cambridge, MA
Year Launched: 1984

MOTU is famous among musicians for its Macintosh and Windows audio recording software. The company created Performer, one of the first MIDI music programs for the original Macintosh, in 1985. Its current products include Traveler, a small, portable, audio-recording console that plugs into a Mac’s FireWire port and allows users to record up to eight audio tracks at a CD-quality bit rate of 192Khz. Musicians can plug their microphones, guitars, synthesizers, keyboards, drum machines, and effects synthesizers directly into the Traveler, then mix and monitor these channels through the device’s headphone output, while the attached computer can concentrate on recording or playing back the audio signals.
