    On my G5 no worries, the sector is plugged, firewire, we put the cd and presto!

    to use, what I like least, it's the little knobs too small ..., nicks METERS has LED ridiculous spacing among jack in front too just back, do not rely connect 8 large jack enrobs like "yellow cable" no pass, prvoir multicore with a small "fine" jacks.
    The standalone mode is convenient, ca dpanne.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 6 months, it is beautiful, it sounds great, it's big sound, the price is reasonable.
    Today j'couterais E-mu cards before buying, having said no regrets, I love it!

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I bought the MOTU 828 MK2 in Quebec because the digital audio equipment is cheaper there. I was more interested in the stability of the brand by the number of entries. The number of output also interested me but I do have rarely served.
    I use it with my Macbook Pro that I bought in 2005. I still have these two devices together and after updating Mac, it works fine.
    This is the firewire legacy that connects the two and I rarely had any problems. The day I got one, the distributor of the brand in Paris I was replaced for less than 100 euros. If I have to buy a card, I will take a MOTU. I connect my MIDI keyboard. And I get my stereo audio on the map.

    My macbook pro: Mac OS X - Processor: 1.83 Intel Core Audio - Memory 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM.

    UTILIZATION

    I recorded three tracks at a time no more. It works.
    I can read 12 audio without problems.
    The system is overloaded from 16 tracks, at the reading.
    The drivers are stable. I use Logic Pro 9 and MainStage. I never had a problem.
    I have no lag or it is very short.
    on the other hand to control sound physical modeling, it does not work well. The dynamic is not good. But maybe it comes from the keyboard.

    GETTING STARTED

    Installation is very simple. The card is detected as soon as the computer and the card and the computer are connected.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use the two together for 8 years. Everything is stable as long as it takes and as long as the software does not change too quickly as this may be outdated.
    MOTU before, I tried two others: EDIROL and other small cards but it was not stable with the ibook I had at the time. Connections behind the camera are not practical. Ergonomics can definitely improve. The price is worth it because of the stability of my system.

    Purchased 10 years ago because of the reputation of the brand. Used for film music and pub as midi (virtual instruments) and audio (made instruments and vocals). Connected to an iMac and used with Logic Pro.

    UTILIZATION

    Stable drivers, installation very simple: you install the driver, plug the firewire cable and go.
    No audible latency, including such parts ultra rhythmic rhodes piano jazz / funk clavinet.
    I saved up to 6 tracks (drums) simultaneously and it goes without pb, in fact multitrack recording performance depends on the power of the computer.

    The preamps on the front are nice to troubleshoot (especially because you can switch jack and xlr and because you can directly connect a bass or electric guitar) but the signal quality is average. It is much better to go through a "real" external preamp connected to the inputs on the rear panel.

    GETTING STARTED

    No pb computer type to report, this card is stable and it is especially strong. I embedded the 10aines times for sessions, and I turn off an average of 4 times per day for 10 years, calculate ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I worked mainly on RME Fireface, Apogee Ensemble, MOTU and concerned. I will not be smart to say that MOTU sounds better or worse than the other 2 because I do not know: there are too many parameters that come into play (quality of listening, room acoustics, style music, etc.). I leave the subtleties of the debate on the quality of converters purists :)

    What I can tell you is that MOTU has never given the impression of limiting anything in the creative process as it is used in a serious audio chain (good mics, good preamps, good plays) and is capable of delivering sound pro, and music that sells ;)

  • excellent, well thought out, complete, very stable with excellent CV

    MOTU 828 Mk2Published on 12/18/12 at 11:51
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I wanted an interface with inputs lines and NOT the preamp signal path. CV with good communication and very fast with the motherboard to support mixing sessions asser loaded. I had a budget squeeze at the time of purchase.

    it works 110 or 220volt via a switch on the side (I use my ca)

    Used with a macbook pro under Lion.

    UTILIZATION

    Perfect stability, never crash, never a bug. When OSX Lion is out, Motu has reacted quickly and asser first update the driver was impeccable. This is always the case.

    Used with Logic (8 and 9), Reason 5, Live 8 and a bunch of other standalone software. A test wave in Protools and Reaper. RAS.

    Used with Logic (8 and 9), Reason 5, Live 8 and a bunch of other standalone software. A test wave in Protools and Reaper. RAS.

    When I reach the 60 tracks and a few plugs around it starts to jam with a latency under 11 ms, but unfortunately I know with certainty that the problem comes from Logic. With other I never had any problems.

    GETTING STARTED

    Mine had a concern about the firewire. I bought it used and I think it is for many ca ... Finally, once the problem resolut, everything works perfectly.

    The management utility of monitoring is simple and gets the job done without. I prefer to make my configuration directly on the hardware.

    The manual is very clear and simple answers to many questions and detail.
    A friend turns on the pc (windows 7 it seems) and has stability issues.

    I use the i / os / PDIF and I noticed the noise on the input when the peripheral branch is turn off. I do not think that comes from the Motu ca. a use that is not dereangeant requires a ca not allow direct monitoring of the S / PDIF open when not in use.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is excellent, value for money is to die for. Converters me enormously more, apart from one Apogee Rosetta 200 I do not use more than the Motu.

    I like stability, no stall even when changing sampling frequency, with programs already opened in the brancheant / unplugging hot, and putting the computer into standby (working on laptop, it is convenient).

    Another point that I like, it is a 10 in 10 out analog. Both preamps foh not replace input lines and output monitor not replace the line output.

    The only point I like a little less is not to have two different potentiometers for the headphone output facade and the speaker volume. (Gains are different of course, but you must click to select one or the other).

    In summary, this is excellent, well thought out, complete, very stable with excellent driver and CV. I almost considered buying a second because as explained in the manual, Motu has planned power chaining interfaces (up to 3 I think). was $ 300, I'm full.

    The purchase of my and my microphone pre-amp has motivated the choice of the Motu.
    For consistency, the Motu corresponded exactly to my installation: Newmann TLM.

    Even with my old windows XP PC 98, it works and knows how to install nikel almost of itself, despite several uninstall my PC system.


    Taking fireware is excellent and convenient ... they should all be the same way.

    UTILIZATION

    Bought used, it runs perfectly, no problem.
    Quite stable, even when I open ejamming with skype.

    Magix software: I can read 10 tracks simultaneously.

    No noise, no latency or delay ... everything is perfect ... a true gem!

    For cons, the updates are not indicated or requested ...

    GETTING STARTED

    Easy installation .. you just need to pay attention to the outputs, especially when you want to use e jamming and playing with friends in lines.


    General Setup nice and simple.

    The manual? God thank you I found this site in French!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost 2 years and it dates from 2009.

    Its reliability and reputation I have not done hésiter...qualité / price: super!

    What I like most is its first appearance: clear and everything is displayed.
    Then, is his loyalty and reliability.

    The sound comes and nickel addition, the map remains stable and long process with several open at the same time.

    With experience, I remake the same choice but earlier!

    UTILIZATION

    not too stable since I've been in windows 7 xp very well but is sorely lacking in tone

    complicated especially if you already have the motu type 128 Express installed

    OVERALL OPINION

    use since 2008
    relative price quite a bit lack of reliability on Windows 7
    yes but easy to inflate usb pc config
