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.


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 ...


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!


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!
