    with the experience I do not referrer twice that choice. No way to have the software of feedback signals in CUEMIX. If you want sparrer the software release, obliged to have a digital mixer behind otherwise have a summation of the signals (sound rotten suddenly, significant drop dynamics). Several hours with the distributor in France there is nothing changed.
    I advise you FOCUSRITE LIQUID SAFFIRE 56 if the routing keeps you heart. One wonders sometimes if the sellers know what they are talking about.

    MOTU 828 mk3 FirewirePublished on 03/07/13 at 00:46
    The MOTU 828MK3 is a firewire or a USB connected interface. The manual was easy to read through and understand making the set up process very easy. It is rackable taking up one rack stace and it also has on board effects. The support with this product is not very good though I remember having some issues when working with it on my Mac a few times and contacting them about it got me nowhere.

    UTILIZATION

    The DSP effects are built in are a huge plus for any user, there are reverb and EQ plug ins to use with any DAW that you enjoy working in. The preamps are decent, not the best that I have heard from MOTU but not the worse either. This interface will work on a Windows and Mac system and......

    The MOTU 828MK3 is a firewire or a USB connected interface. The manual was easy to read through and understand making the set up process very easy. It is rackable taking up one rack stace and it also has on board effects. The support with this product is not very good though I remember having some issues when working with it on my Mac a few times and contacting them about it got me nowhere.

    UTILIZATION

    The DSP effects are built in are a huge plus for any user, there are reverb and EQ plug ins to use with any DAW that you enjoy working in. The preamps are decent, not the best that I have heard from MOTU but not the worse either. This interface will work on a Windows and Mac system and it works great with ASIO drivers as well. It comes with software called AudioDesk which I only used one time and didn’t like it at all but I guess if you are a new user then it could work for you but you will outgrow it and want to do more. It came with software called CueMix FX too, which was great!

    GETTING STARTED

    This interface does not seem to be built as well as other MOTU interfaces and it seems like it could have issues if it is used and abused. But it does come with a warranty for 2 years from them so if you have any issues you can always return it. Hopefully it is a hassle free return.

    OVERALL OPINION

    There is a small LED screen that is backlit, it doesn’t have the best quality but it is not bad. It is easy to read and see what you want to do on it but it is not very graphical. This interface is average at best to me but the plug ins that comes with it makes it worth having because they are worth the money.

    I use for my speakers and my mixing desk, or any kind of audio sources.

    UTILIZATION

    Well, I used for 4 years non stop.
    it works on all my OS X.5 Mac version to 10.7, not tested on the latest version, but I think it works.

    GETTING STARTED

    Easy beginner level.

    OVERALL OPINION

    4 years non stop, I never extinguished.
    It is super strong!
    This is my first audio card, and if I use another, it would be the same.

    I change against a ADDA2000 CPORT, I wanted better with more possibilis (ADAT, DSP)

    GETTING STARTED

    No bug yet met in 15 days of use by sync with my converter I SRC2496 rsolu using a 75 ohm cable and passing the CONV slave.
    the drivers are not so rcents maj
    I shoot with REAPER, but I still Sat 7
    latency achieved with 10 tracks of playback and 17 pluggins 5ms

    OVERALL OPINION

    + + + The routing is impressive, the number of possible leads, sub groups for live, and it is a must for me DSP plug is handy (EQ cut down lgre compression OH) that are applicable everywhere! East but rather to stand alone as the most adapted (number of sounds are made with no effect so ...)
    the ratio Q / P is thundering and I must be really happy with this purchase.
    I do not see anything in these prices on the market.
    It remains to see over time if bugs appear, if the gear is reliable.
    good stuff!

    Bass, Synth Guitar readers.
    I have an old yamaha analog console and player / recorder DAT.
    I have not used the ADAT

    UTILIZATION

    - Installation is it without problem?
    Trouble-free Mac; dconvenues few windows but quickly returns to normal.
    - Have you experienced any incompatibility?
    I have to update the firewire patch for windows, otherwise the name input / output in cubase does not seem to match exactly.
    - The configuration gnrale is easy?
    Yes, the CueMix spcial is faster but you get used trs
    - The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
    Not read ... oops ...

    GETTING STARTED

    - The drivers are stable?
    Ah yes, a! no crashes so far. on the other hand, Mac, when I close the window of cuemixFX, although it remains open in the dock, I have to restart compltement rcuprer to the window (leaving CueMix FX and restart in application)
    - Are they often put day?
    2 Firmware Update since the release of the map (v1.06) and the soft SHIFT 2 for Mac only (v1.4.8).
    In thoriated I mfie of SHIFT too redundant, often means that there is a typo somewhere. Better a product sold with all works automatically and does not ncessite MAJ. on the other hand I expect of the SHIFT CueMix FX rather surprising (well j'espre There Contents ...)
    - What software do you use most often?
    Sound Forge, Cubase SX3, Logic Express
    - What you get lag?
    11ms with 512 in the buffer but I have not sought any rduire a, a trs works well as is.
    - How many tracks you get record / playback simultanment? ...
    I made the 24 tracks full of FX read no worries. I have, for now, no longer pushed. On record, like, I have not tried the 28 tracks simultaneously

    OVERALL OPINION

    I put a 7 for the following reasons

    - How long have you use it?
    3 weeks
    - What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    The +: everything is exactly the map I was looking at in / out level and Routing (16 mono bus out, a slap!) And CueMix FX apprciable is really more for the home studio and live (in studio I do not think a lot used)
    The -: The input gain knobs click each microphone in 1 db and microphone inputs blow too my taste. No select -10 / +4 dB line inputs while the gain line inputs scans of 22 -96.
    Finally I had little whistles the other day and it's not good at all! (See forum)
    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    Motu Traveler, Terratec DMX6fire, Digi 002, Motu 2408, from the Terratec these are all good cards. I try a TC Konnect AIM, Mackie Onyx or RME before choosing, I was also much talk of Echo but ... there is some point you have to report levels and DCID / qualitprix / stabilitconnectique, hard to do better.
    - How do you report qualitprix?
    Trs good as said above. A good soft LE version, other than that AudioDesk gre not noon, would be perfect.
    - With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
    I do not usually buy the same stuff twice, but hey admitting that my house brle and insurance reimburse me well, yes I would reiterate that the ... What that change aa good too ;-)

    UTILIZATION

    ... The system is such galre I have not been able to make it work. Am I the only one? First firmware to date - I reu the card with the firmware n 1.04 (which appears the ignition) and I managed to install version 1.06 aprstl loading the software on the site Motu. Anglophobes refrain! (Thank you to the hotline at um-distribution because I never thought to press the PAGE button on the faade of the card while turning on the machine to put it into implementation mode rception - days. Do not look, it's not in the manual, in English Obviously).
    All these manipulations to try to Russia last installation of drivers that leads invariably the same message: "Motu Wave Audio: This driver can Get You Started - Error code 10". I tried an installation of the card on another PC: rsultat same. Would I reu dfectueuse card? In fact, it's deuxime Reue card in May 2008 I complain here. THE FIRST, bought in April, did not work at all and I had t replace dja?
    You will understand why, today, I put a zero-point at all!

    GETTING STARTED

    I remain perplexed a machine and its installation software Windows XP compatible certificates that you buy together in a nice bote hit, it should work immediately without prior - day, right?
    What latency do you get: ending for 4 months!
    So no opinion on this subject.

    OVERALL OPINION

    What is the particular feature you like least? :
    - Autism MOTU firm and its total lack of pdagogie (except to sell you their products, as for the DMOS Motu on the site is great!)
    Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    - No, only the MK2 which I do not dry up boxes.

    Exprience with, you will do again this choice?
    - Ds as I find how to install it, I promise, I will our answer!
