    OVERALL OPINION

    this is the oldest product of my studio and simply the best purchase I made for 7 years.

    it's been over seven years since the interface makes me good service and I do not feel the need for more expensive.

    what I like most is the value of his / price / flexibility.

    I redid the choice a second time by taking a 828 for the studio which is almost similar to the ultralite and the compactness of lThis last makes it a perfect ally to play in the evenings.

    MOTU UltraLitePublished on 07/24/12 at 23:56
    The Motu Ultra Lite is a audio interface that connects to your pc through fire wire, you computer would need to have a fire wire port in order for you to be able to use this device. If you don’t have a fire wire port on your computer don’t even bother purchasing this. You will need to get a USB interface instead. There is a large debate on if fire wire is better than USB, in my opinion you wont really be able to tell a difference in quality just maybe the USB will have a little more of a lag, but in most cases the lag is so minimal that the ear cant even pick it up. But there is a lag in fire wire too, so don’t think if you purchase the Motu Ultra Lite that you wont have any lag at......

But there is a lag in fire wire too, so don’t think if you purchase the Motu Ultra Lite that you wont have any lag at all, because all interfaces have some sort of a lag. But you wont be able to tell there is a lag when using the Motu lite.


    UTILIZATION

    The Motu Ultra Lite is a complex little interface, it is very powerful for it to be such a small unit. There are plenty of ins to run all of your audio in signals into so you can do whatever you want to do with them , in my case I used it to get audio into my pc from external gear.


    GETTING STARTED

    The sound is very good, you will love the quality. But I think that the price of this unit brand new is a little too expensive. Even a used one can still cost 200 or more dollars today and it has been out for a while now.


    OVERALL OPINION

    There are several fire wire interfaces that are great, the Motu Ultra Lite is a great one as well, I just feel like it is an overpriced unit because its just too expensive. Maybe if it was this price and it was rack able then it would be different or if they offered a rack able version of this same device I would feel different about it.

    The number of inputs and outputs, firewire, and brand reputation have made me make that choice

    Rec home studio vocals, guitar, bass, live rec, and analysis of its systems for taf.

    UTILIZATION

    Never a problem in 8 years. First on a pc with windows xp and a firewire card directly on the motherboard. Then on a macbook. Latency inaudible if the session on which you record and read your tracks is on an external hard drive. And even if the case can not handle 4 mix of internally monitoring card.
