Interesting teardown of the AMT8 at http://studiorepair.com/gallery/EES_Emagic/AMT8/index.html (pictures also from deepsonic.ch)

You can see that the AMT8/Unitor8 do share the same PCB, bar the missing components and firmware:

https://www.deepsonic.ch/deep/htm/emagic_unitor8.php

Design by EES Technik für Musik, a now defunct german company that used to make MIDI retrofit kits, MIDI devices and OEM design/production (software protection dongles, MIDI gear) for other manufacturers from 1983 to 2008:

All metal case AMT8/Unitor8 were very seriously built compared to the very lightweight, cheap feeling Midex8. Both share a very similar electronic design though, the magic of AMT/LTB being in the coupling with their respective software companion, to offload timing sensitive processing to the hardware MIDI patchbay 8051 compatible MCU.
