Bestes Preisleistungsverhältnis für die Menge an analogen Outputs

10.03.2017
We have screened all available multichannel audio interfaces for the best price per output channel (43 ¤ per channel). We were very lucky that it did turn out to be a MOTU ?

We use the device for multichannel 3D audio loudspeaker setups in combination with the MNTN 3D audio software. For this purpose, it's still not easy to find interfaces with enough output channels for a reasonable price.

For the audio quality, it's MOTU as we know it. No concerns for all the critical aspects. A minor thing is that it's hard to get started without taking a quick look at the manual. That's why we spend only four stars on usability. However, that's how we know MOTU devices, too. But still, it's almost plug-and-play.

A big plus is the possibility to combine up to 5 devices to end up with 120 output channels (=loudspeakers) from one single computer. The scalability not only counts for practical purposes, but also for the budget.

A minus: The ads on the MOTU product website did let us understand that the device could be connected to a Mac directly via ethernet cable. Until now, we couldn't figure out how that might work. However, USB works fine or course.

Here is an article comparing other multichannel audio interfaces to connect a bunch of loudspeakers to you computer: https://mntn.rocks/news/2016/06/16/how-you-connect-a-bunch-of-loudspeakers-to-your-computer

Design errors

Frederic6273, 29.03.2015
I acquired the worst 24 AO AI in order to have 64 Io

First of all we discover that in the end we can only router on usb 24 on 64 ... average .. basically the 24 in / out analog .. it is damaging because there are 3x2 set of ports ADATS in more !! Therefore 48 in / out more

Firmare truffled of bugs, loss of the cnx to the admin of the stuff when connected in USB .. finally after 3 firemare update in 2 months good news

64 in / out routable on usb in the end, finally

More loss of connection to cards ...

On the other hand, the in / out does not work on mac (not tested on other bones) indeed if you put the 24Ai first 64 inputs are numbered 1 to 64, like 24 AO Arrives behind, the corresponding outputs for example the 24 Input analog are numbered from 65 to 87 !! Impossible to use memory, every time you plug an effect to use it in blucle, you must go to the fishing under xls to know the in / out to use !!
This product has not been made at all to be used as the fact to know only the in / out but in standalone, mixing everything in their Soft, which looks good to the de-scenter
