Elfredo_sono's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It does"

number of I / O + evolutionary system up to 4 24i / o simultaneously.
opportunity to "disconnect" inputs or outputs inactive.
The line level only in my case.

PC winXP pro + Athlon 64 2600 + 2.5 gig of ram

Config "big" home studio. I pass by a soundcraft 200B preamp, I go back to live in the OUT Motu. I've only recording 24/48

She also serves to insert external machines (verb, gate, comp) in my DAW.


I had to update the drivers one time, no worries.

Use in Nuendo4

I can save my 24 tracks without problems. 5ms/256 latency buffers (I think ..). In reading, I received a draft of 97 audio tracks, with the plugs, it was necessary that I go up the samples and I got to 11ms, not very important in mix, maybe for the accuracy of automated systems.

Nuendo4 a + "planting" the sound card.




9 months

bcp models ... Terratec 6fire, guillemot isis (!) Echo Layla 3G, motu 8pre ...

Frankly, it works well. it is stable with a clean system. (But even on my multiboot, I have a great sound on GTA or Silent Hunter!)

Good preamp upstream because no microphone input and the fact ca. I did not find a problem of quality loss with different conversions A / DD / YY / D with my external insert effects. (Config boring though as well check the levels. Properly calculate the latency, but nuendo4 does it well.

ben I'd like a aditional! and other preamps

Pro tools HD 192? Neve? Altec? Let's start with a good song ...

becarre's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

The purchase of this card is prvoir for those who have a bunch of instruments in audio plug 24 between the permit. I and all my ACCS bcannes without ever having to unplug it extremely comfortable during the phase of components, recording, mastering all ... what! Question is top quality. Prvoir may be a bit of ARER MOTU heater. PC issue some advice to run on XP, personally I work with 2000 pro and it works impeccably.


The manufacturer also advises installing the drivers before the card ... ... I confirm by exprience! I had not followed this advice and I THE FIRST installation of any reinstall including 2000 pro. Setup is simple, is not simple.


I work with Cubase SX and all these people mean well trs, never a single incident, no crash. It is nickel.


I work with MOTU 24i / o for a year and a half I have no complaints. It's comfortable, it's simple, a plant ever, a true wonder.

The Monz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

As part of a project intercom in my Socit we should have a system that allows to communicate in a twenty audio speaker (char simulator;)

The only product we found in homogne as its inputs (ie 8 by 16 ana + num) silent
this one.

So the choice of this product was a natural.

In addition, the possibility to connect 4 24 i / o on a PC and therefore be in a configuration that can
get up to 96 speakers silent we lment dcisif which we have chosen the coupling 24i / o + software rather than a solution based matrix Audio (more onreuse clean silence as a control protocol of the matrix


The installation was done by following the procedure MOTU ..


Install drivers

Then install the hardware.

Trs simple configuration ... the mixer is easy to use ...

The definition of routing is as simple as the CHAC attnuation.

Manuel prcis clear.


In our application, the engine that drives the audio card uses the ASIO SDK from Steinberg.

I did some tests on my pc with a card and Hoontech, ds I had a crash program,
I had to reboot my PC to get all the new ACCS between terminals of the card.

MOTU ASIO drivers are great because even when I planted my engine Home Audio (pointer
necessary, overflow memory, etc. ...), it was enough for me to restart my application and everything worked perfectly.

For information, on a PC AMD XP 1700 +, I did the following tests:
24 tracks recorded each output + = mixing 24 I ..;

In release, I shoot 10% CPU load (and again I am not an expert in programming
audio and optimizations to the mix (that said, MMX code for mixing is optimal)).

Very low latency so see inaudible because 512 runs in 44 Khz buffer size .. perfect
Intercom for our application.


I use it for six months as part of a development project using audio engine br /> Intercom module pilot a professional and I no referrer hsiter choice.

The card is robust.

The drivers are very good qualities.

The VU meters on the front panel are very useful especially when you want to do tests and the vrifier
software sends many give audio output on diffrent outputs (and you do not forcment
as much as headphone output)

As part of this project profesional, we use a hardware solution hsiter type
Audio Matrix that a protocol driver with expensive and abstruse Owner '...

The use of this card is fabulous for our application ...

As a developer in the use of this card, I would advise all who wish Socit
implement this type of architecture (intercom, audio matrix).

I remain joingable for more information or if you want me you develop a sound engine
adapted to your needs;)

I use it as interface "magnto" inline between my console 24 and Cubase SX. I do basically serves as cubase for shipping, cleaning and storage of track and I did everything via the console.
The 24 inputs can record audio into cubase 24 sources and 24 outputs are magnto back to the console to mix directly on the console.


- Installation is it without problem?
Unheard of for me! 5 minutes to install the drivers first, to dye for dcabler the PC open the box, do the mnage in the PC, install the PCI card and close the box back on rewire, connect the cable, go into cubase vrifier that the crate is and start working.

2/3ms with buffers 256
- How many tracks you get record / playback simultanment? ...
24 tracks simultaneously. against the increase in buffer size (1024 or 2048 should be nickel) I had to crack inrents sound card during recording or live microphone had 10 batteries, a low and a DI between micro bass, guitar and two inputs (POD) or 14 simultaneous input total to more than one track read by click. The buffers 128 silent, and to frquence chantillonage in 24Bit 96Khz, and I got in all in all 8 crack with music by 3 minutes and a half!
I have put the size of the buffers 512 and more crunches Hop!
