MOTU UltraLite mk3Published on 09/07/08 at 07:02
I got this a year or two ago because I wanted to get a small portable interface that I can take with me when I travel and I don't want to lug around a giant rack with my studio gear. This little interface is packed full of features even though it's tiny. There are 8 audio inputs, a headphone and main out, built-in FX, and good sounding preamps and A/D conversion. I use this pretty much exclusively with my Toshiba Satellite laptop which has Windows XP. The audio inputs and outputs are all standard 1/4" cables. It will connect to your computer with a firewire cable.

I got this a year or two ago because I wanted to get a small portable interface that I can take with me when I travel and I don't want to lug around a giant rack with my studio gear. This little interface is packed full of features even though it's tiny. There are 8 audio inputs, a headphone and main out, built-in FX, and good sounding preamps and A/D conversion. I use this pretty much exclusively with my Toshiba Satellite laptop which has Windows XP. The audio inputs and outputs are all standard 1/4" cables. It will connect to your computer with a firewire cable.

UTILIZATION

This installed with no problems. I installed the driver from the disc, then updated it with the drivers on the MOTU website. After that it was pretty much ready to go after I plugged it in. There is a software interface page on which you can set a few options, and after that I was ready to record. I haven't experienced any compatibility issues with my computer or with the Nuendo software I run on it. The manual is very good. If you have any questions it's very likely you'll find the answer in there. There are also some subtle features on this interface that the manual explains, so it's worth your time to read through the whole thing.

GETTING STARTED

The drivers work very well, I have never had a problems with them. I believe they were last updated about a year ago, but I haven't seen any reason to update them since then since they work fine. I most often use this interface with Nuendo. The latency is just about 0, and you can also monitor while recording straight through the interface which is 0 latency monitoring. You can record 8 tracks at a time with the 8 1/4" inputs.

OVERALL OPINION

I really love the compactness of this interface since it makes it great for traveling and using it as a laptop companion. Even though it's small, it doesn't skimp on features that you may get used to having in the studio. The price is great, MOTU is giving you a great deal on a very useful piece of gear. It's a great value and I would definitely get it again.

Quality and renames Motu. Nothing is missing: I / O galore, microphone jack, routing, DSP ... Rglage master volume (all external interfaces do not offer). Firewire connection not ncessitant external power (sick of these son lurking everywhere!) And especially I can also plug it into my laptop. Otherwise I will go for a multifaceted in PCI Express

Usage amateur home studio, creation of electronic music, guitar and microphone jacks

2.66 Ghz Mac Pro quad-7 GB Ram, 500 GB Sata HDD 2

Used with a Virus TI and Novation Xstation Cubase 5

USE

Installation nickel, I Tlcharger the latest drivers on the website Motu.

Minimum System 2 among 2 outputs very easy to implement. Not try routing, see.

Manuel not regardbr />
IMPLEMENTATION

For now everything works perfectly, so I assume that drivers are stable.

Latency obtained approximately 6ms

Over 30 tracks and I still do not have push its limits

NOTICE GLOBAL

It's been just four hours that I use

Highlight: audio quality gain on my projects,
Weakness: green screen on the facade before, suddenly it looks like a car radio

Testing the Rme Multiface 2 express card on my laptop but I had big problems with the drivers and connections. So, back direct sender.

Very good report quality price, its nearest competitor (Multiface) is about 300 euros more.

Not enough experience with to say.
