    I chose this interface for its excellent quality / price.

    For a compact interface, it still has a number of inputs / outputs more than satisfactory and a lot of options are available. Note the ability to mount the 192KHz sampling.

    I tested the firewire and USB. No differences of course but gained consciousness I would recommend firewire.
    I use it mainly for listening, sound editing and occasionally Foley on Adam A5X.
    It has happened to me to use it to record the stereo analog output table in a classical recording.

    I tested the firewire and USB. No differences of course but gained consciousness I would recommend firewire.
    I use it mainly for listening, sound editing and occasionally Foley on Adam A5X.
    It has happened to me to use it to record the stereo analog output table in a classical recording.

    USE

    I would note a few stability problems. Is not at all a computer whiz, I do not know what is the fact that, listen, this interface abruptly stops sending sound. I just need to restart the file to get everything in order, but it is a difficult problem ...

    I use many Pro Tools and Ableton. Who had never worked on large sessions, I have not yet seen the limits of the number of lanes. The recording quality is correct without being exceptional ...

    The updates do not seem very common and has high latency but at that price, I do not expect much better.

    CueMix FX software, however, is very pleasant to use and has many useful tools to analyze a mix.
    The reverb embraquée is a great selling point for this interface. However, I use reverb convolusions and find them obviously superior to it. From an algorithmic point of view, I'm more a fan of the Lexicon and TC reverb that this will probably satisfy a musician but not a sound editor.

    Level preamp, we are in an amateur but good registry for what it is. With little budget, I usually used with a NT2A Rode for voices and sound effects. The couple works well but sounds a little cold ...

    IMPLEMENTATION

    Simple Installation and use.

    Just plug and install the software and everything goes.

    You just get used to press the knobs to access other functions of the card. Ultimately, not even need to read the manual.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 3 years and I have to say that despite some reservations about the stability of the beast, I'm pretty satisfied.

    I find it superior to the MBox.

    I especially like its modularity, the large number of inputs / outputs, good recording quality for the price and the CueMix FX software rather comprehensive and user-friendly as far as manipulating the mouse is not disconcerting.

    For 500 €, I think it's proper case, but which calls for a future purchase more efficient as far as we seek something higher course.

    I think I would do this choice if I was in the same financial conditions and with the same level of incompetence at the time of my purchase.
    I think it fulfills its role card aspiring sound engineer but a greater mastery of the sound world calls for quick switching interfaces.

    I intend to keep it and use it as analog / digital converter with a direct outs Revox table for a mobile control for the classic.

    Warning sound card offers to use via its table mix CUE MIX .. it is sometimes complicated :-( some settings are another tool MOTU (MOTU SETUP).'s Manual does not explain much. However, we learn walking, live status, etc. ... so you get there :-)

    GETTING STARTED

    "Easy" to use with the cue mix software virtual.
    You can record different presets table mix and settings of the sound card. It reminds easily ... and that without computer on as the card also works without the USB or FW, standalone.

    Installation of drivers okay.
    Little explicit manual :-(
    The usb does not feed the sound card.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I award this sound card for its size (small), manufacturing (solid), the quality of its inputs, the number, virtual mix table (but very complicated "modular"), compressors, reverb, and EQ. I also took as it is powered by Firewire :-)

    It can be used with or without a computer.

    It is a sound card very good in terms of inputs and outputs, the mixing desk and manufacturing.

    Update: I sold this card to keep only her big sister. Indeed, live, I prefer the larger version because I can put a machine on, I can put two headphones (we both play) and I go XLR what suits teams sound.

    But that should not stop you:
    It is a sound card very good in terms of inputs and outputs, the mixing desk and manufacturing.

    Some take RME but it is more expensive. Here, the MOTU gives great results, it is very suitable for portable use (and the results are PRO).

    For a roaming registration and use as mixing at home. I took him various preamps variable quality (BlueTube, joemeek, audio TL ivory, spl GoldMike mk2) and a nice variety of microphones (again, no crap) and I've never been disappointed by the converters.
    For monitoring, I used ADAM a7x + hifi + a crash test (computer speakers) + active PA speaker (mono), so 7 outputs used. Here it should be noted that the D / A converters are numerous AND quality, which is rare in this price range, it seems to me.

    UTILIZATION

    The drivers were stable under winXP, win7 and mac (I know what OS). That's the whole point of this machine, you can install the app super fast on the local computer (in a musicos example) and transform it into audio recording station in 5 minutes (well if when even already DAW software, which is what many musicos in their computer).

    I have already recorded 8 tracks simultaneously using dsp (eq / comp / reverb), no problem.
    Another important point is the low latency and direct monitoring can even say no latency. In any case if there are problems, it will probably because the PC because this card ensures that view.

    The firmware has been updated correctly, I had a problem before or after the execution of the update.

    GETTING STARTED

    The installation is really quick and painless, the CueMix software, it's been a decade that I practice so it's tricky, but I say it's still easy to understand and intuitive. It is regrettable that it is impossible to have both the IN, OUT and Mix windows must often pass each other, but hey, it is logical.
    The manual is clear and sufficient paper version + pdf.

    In contrast direct commands on the machine, it is tedious and not ergonomic at all, at the same time it is true that claim condense a mixer on 4cm2 is hot. MOTU tells us we can use the card without the interface, it's bullshit. Here can only serve as troubleshooting, and more.
    I would say that, given the quality of the knobs, it is better to leave the volume knob to a stereo or other not to damage the poor little one or two years of normal use, ie listen to music daily (as convertos, again, are very pleasant to listen to our favorite music in good condition).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it for 4 years (2009/2013), after a motu 828 mk2 who farted after 6 years (2003/2009). The ultralight, it has not sold but I sold it (in perfect condition) for a map Steinberg UR824 more preamps.

    I also know RME, and I also attended more expensive systems, but only as a musician.

    MOTU defended well because it is compact and all in one, but it can also be a default because if used at the end of its capabilities, it almost pitied her with all these cables and returning coming out of the little black and green thing in the middle. And in terms of handling, everything is tight, it was difficult to find a connection with your fingers. I also find that the controls are very fragile and do not inspire confidence. That said, if all the control mice who cares.

    The power transformer is blown, I changed it and everything worked again.

    The backlight is very fragile, something that applies to all MOTU cards, so we must think of the contrast down a few points from the factory setting (and you can see very well anyway).

    Must engage the XLR straight and cleanly as it can stay a little stuck sometimes short, carefully manipulate the connectors.

    Absolutely sure of the power from the PC, it is not reliable at all if we want to exploit its capabilities (pad, 48v, preamp, dsp). From this point of view, this is false advertising. Against by the transformer, everything is reliable. On the original model, the Tranfo too hot, disconnect it when not in use. The new model of transformer does not have the same characteristics, which is not, in my opinion, not a chance (1A instead of 800mA)

    Frankly and finally, the machine is very pretentious but it provides good from every point of view, if it is treated like a diva and you have the patience to accept the weaknesses related to its small size, to be gentle with it, etc. ...

    It has the defects of his qualities.

    This is a good quality / price ratio in my opinion.

    It can connect to a computer via USB or Firewire 2, with which the use of the supplied power is not helpful.

    Without connecting to a computer (PC or Apple), it can also serve as a mixer on stage for example, there are effects, compressor / limiter and reverb, EQ is very effective.

    For now, I use the USB port for recording guitar, bass, and occasionally voice, and of course reading moultes sound banks.

    UTILIZATION

    The drivers are stable the regular updates.
    I record up to two tracks simultaneously, and read I go to a little less than a twenty.
    The latency is about 4 milliseconds, very acceptable.
    I use it with Cubase.

    GETTING STARTED

    Installation is simple.
    This is my first map so sophisticated, so the grip took me a little time.
    Most important: NEVER USE THE OUTPUT MAIN OUT, otherwise everything that enters the card comes through like it or not, terrible mixing or testing a mix of different tracks ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two / three years, I do not know well, and I am fully satisfied.
    It requires that all of the sound chain is of good quality, so do not skimp on the quality of the tracks, there is no incentive to use the speaker with a laptop ...
    It suited my needs, I upgraderai if I have the opportunity to work on projects much larger than I made today.
    Leaves today to buy something similar, I will look good on the news, but this interface will keep my reference.
    Unless you fall on the five-legged sheep, quality converter even better and even lower prices with the same level of reliability, I might repeat this interface.

    MOTU UltraLite mk3 HybridPublished on 11/12/12 at 23:23
    The UltraLite MK3 Hybrid is a 10 input and 14 output interface that connects to your computer through a USB cable or you can connect it to you computer through a firewire port if you PC or Mac has one. It has 2 very good preamps and has some on unit effects as well. The price is very affordable for all that this interface comes with. The UltraLite MK3 has a screen display on it, it is not a full color screen though. The screen display is great for choosing your effects and tweaking those effects to the desired amount you wish to use.

    UTILIZATION

    You can use this interface with either a Mac or a PC depending on which OS you are using. You will get very low latency recordings with this interface and you can also use it for the effects in a standalone mode. I have used this interface for both recording and for effects, the first time that I used it was last fall. I wanted to purchase it immediately after using it for the first time.

    GETTING STARTED

    It is simple to set up, and you can use it in almost any DAW that you choose. Both of the microphone amps have phantom power built in for your condenser microphones. You will have no issues installing the drivers on your computer, it is a plug and play type of interface. The MK3 is also built to last you a long time, it is built with some sort of a protective casting around it that will stand up strong if you happen to knock it off the desk or drop it. Because it can not be racked this is something to take into consideration when looking for an interface.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The MK3 has about 12 digital mixer effects that you have right at your finger tips. Even if you choose to not use this as your main interface you will still have some great effects that you can use stand alone.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Remarkable device. I chose this sound card, I'm sure this will surprise argument, not mainly for music, but for professional dictation. The recreational use to be quite exceptional. After long hesitation, I based on very positive reviews on this brand, but also on the size of the interface, to accompany a laptop MacBook pro on the go. The price was also critical, although I made the choice of a high quality sound card, over time, choice, cost-effective and more economical. Besides the obvious quality workmanship, and we note the point is not incidental that this sound card is manufactured in the United States ... This sound card installed very quickly, is already used on a MacBook Pro equipped Mountain Lion operating system and Mac Speech Dictate Dictation 3. This is my first MOTU card and I think it will not last at all ... For now it remains for me to find a firewire adapter, having had to connect for immediate use in USB mode.

    This text was dictated by the sound card.
    From the first use, very few mistakes.
    For me it is a remarkable product. Sound card and my best by far. Far ahead of my TASCAM, ESI, M AUDIO and many others no doubt. High-end sound card, sure, I'm already interested in MOTU DP.

    I try in Windows Audio Pianoteq (WASAPI / WaveRT) -> super low latency without using ASIO: incredible. THE WASAPI / WaveRT MOTU works ...

    His incredibly detailed.

    Now I will go into the details of CueMix FX

    Motu thank you ...

    A Good Windows / good sound card and music oriented MIX

    PRICE for 466 euros with WaveRT / ASIO and onboard DSP, so good

    Rolls that requires a good Windows 7 or 8 for AUDIO (and WASAPI WaveRT) or a Mac.

    To avoid: XP and Vista

    Bravo. I put 10/10

    I use a MacBookPro with 4GB DDR3 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.93, connected with Firewire and a speaker system Prodipe Pro8 + subwoofer plugged into Jack Pro10S 6.35 on both hand outs that offers the card, for the home studio: Sounds Electro / D & B / Techno / House + recording bass and slap it!

    UTILIZATION

    On Mac, audio drivers are generally stable, no problems here either.
    The software allows you to view Cuemix the rate of exploitation of internal DSP and provides basic monitoring functions + + EQ graphic input graphics compression if needed (with low pass filters and high pass).
    Latency is impeccable, this card has 8 analog inputs, two XLR / Jack with a real possibility of amplifying the input gain so that even an old keyboard to its very low will emerge with a normal potato, and much outputs.
    Track headphone can also be routed and used as independent output.
    SPDIF side: in and out in the CAR and side noon: in and out, standard 5-pin DIN.

    GETTING STARTED

    Installing the fingers in the nose, the MOTU site provides all the necessary tools for download.
    Reminder: the serial number is located under the beast and do not turn the speakers before you hear a click after starting characteristic of the card. This is the only "galley" I know him.
    The manual is clear and detailed, in French.
    The general configuration depends Cuemix, which one is faster, far from the headache caused by the RME interface and its clones miles faders.
    A knob is dedicated to the headphones volume or the master output, switchable by pressure, allowing direct access, that the MMR did not, and that's good practice to not annoy the neighbors!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I last fortnight, it replaces an RME Fireface 800 emergency sold to a member who needed it for a recording ... and me to pay my debts.
    I had a prior M-Audio Audiophile and an Edirol FA-66, but it was clearly below the range.
    This card is portable, self: a mini mixer is integrated and visualized.
    Convertos quality is renowned, it is not hype, it really sounds good and faithful. I, who feared falling on his entry-level, it is not.
    No cracking, noise or breath, or inadvertent stall: it is perfectly stable, contrary to what was said by PCistes lowest. And I use it daily.
    The location of exits and entries is knobs wise, everything is easily accessible.
    You can add a twin sister, the elements of racking are provided and the config is facilitated, explained in the manual.
    We now have 16 inputs and 16 outputs in Rack 19 "format for the price of a Fireface 800 with occas'!
    If I find another like new for € 300, I will not hesitate!
    I put 10/10 (there's no reason, too cool!) Hoping not to have to get this notice for the guidance.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Very disappointed in this sound card.

    It is crazy to become unstable, emits noise in the speakers after several minutes.

    Sound by no means exceptional compared to the model

    Unless I fell on a model DEFECTIVE, but given the various opinions on the net I am not alone.

    I have trouble understanding how to market a product as little stable addition for a price of 500 €.

    Go your way. I'll watch out my 1818m. Nothing to see.

    Very good product

    I owned an M-Audio FW 410,
    I wanted to move to the higher category, but without spending the big bucks required for RME example.

    I use this card with a PC properly inflated (12 gb ram, for example), the sound goes on Focal, I play either the Roland or the south (especially Komplete). I work half of the live (Factory / Ableton) half composting arrangements (Cubase).

    UTILIZATION

    The drivers are a stunning stability. My M-Audio had regular problems, even if it does not crashed as often as the same of my poor brother. No problem on my software does not limit the number of tracks / effects / etc. Latency (in buffer 256) is between 5 and 15 ms.

    GETTING STARTED

    Easy installation, configuration pretty easy (I read some passages from the manual to clarify some points). No incompatibilities encountered, usually detected immediately on software, or plant in Cubase, the settings are very fine and very practical in Ableton, it's a little rough but it's still effective.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year. Before I had the M-Audio FW 410.
    What I love most:
    stability, sound, connectivity (more than provided for m audio fw 410 who actually has a stereo input switcher that can mic or line), hybrid USB or FW, dsp effects, screen, the solid metal casing, the safety off (hold a few seconds, no risk of making a false manipulation) ...
    What I like least:
    taking a mic in front, behind a mic jack, blah ... Attention to the default output volume: it may explode your speakers ... Only one headphone jack, bin it?

    Value for money: frankly, unbeatable, I do it again without hesitation that choice with my budget (for richer, I probably would have chosen an EMR).
