Overview

The MOTU 828mkII FireWire audio interface is great for studio or remote recording. Incredibly expansive in its level of control and versatility, the 828mkII delivers DSP-driven mixing and monitoring in any situation. At the studio, clubs, or rehearsal, you can connect anything you want and monitor it with no separate mixer needed. The superb front-panel control array and backlit LCD allow you to directly access the entire mix or individual settings. There's no channel sharing, either. Its 20 inputs and 22 outputs include 2 mic/guitar inputs, TRS analog I/O, separate main outs, 24-bit ADAT optical I/O, MIDI, sync, and 24-bit S/PDIF digital I/O up to 96kHz.

Includes Audiodesk software, a sample-accurate workstation for Mac OS with 24-bit recording/editing and 32-bit automated mixing/processing/mastering. Mac/PC.

Comments about MOTU 828mkII FireWire Audio Interface:

the 828 mkII is such a great interface. I use it in my home studio. I use it as a live mixer for my band. I use it as a mixer for all my different sound generators at home (stereo, minidisc player, ipod, V-amp, computers) The sound quality is great overall and is fairly intuitive to use. Some of the menus can get a little cumbersome to maneuver especially if this is placed in the wrong spot in your rack. The little knobs can be frustrating for fat fingers like myself. But once you are used to it, its fine. The mic pre's on the front are very transparent sounding. If it sounds good going in, you can bet that it sounds good going to tape and when it comes back out. Super easy to setup. driver installation needs to be performed exactly as the manual says. If not you may run into some issues, but nothing that an uninstall/reinstall won't fix. I have installed this on 4 different machines and only had issues the first time. Since i don't like reading manuals. I have not used the included software for mac (AudioDesk), but I have used it on a mac with garageband and it works flawlessly. On a pc I have used it with Reason, Abletone Live and Sonar. No issues whatsoever. I got this when I decided to leave the protools world behind. I not only saved myself a bunch of money I have made my life much easier because I can use almost any software out there now. If this broke or was stolen, I would not hesitate to get another one. It is a staple in my life and I highly recommend it to anyone who needs an interface.

Great Interface

By Walrus

from Colorado Springs, CO

Comments about MOTU 828mkII FireWire Audio Interface:

I love this interface. The 828mkII has so many options for input/output. I own the firewire version. The only drawback to this interface is that it is pretty picky about the chip that is controlling the firewire on your computer. I use it in SONAR, and it works great.

MOTU Quality

By DSDub

from Chula Vista, CA

Comments about MOTU 828mkII FireWire Audio Interface:

This interface is a steal! It is Mac and PC compatible, and now is available with FireWire or USB2. It has two high quality preamps on the front of the unit, and they sound fantastic. Plenty of I/O to choose from, including built-in MIDI. This unit is expandable, allowing you to add more I/O via additional MOTU interfaces. The included AudioDesk software for Mac is a nice piece of software, especially for those just getting into computer recording - it will defintitely get you ready for Digital Performer. Don't forget this unit can be used as a standalone mixer as well. One of the best interfaces for the money without question.
