Great

Michael M. 113, 15.05.2013
Packed with features, takes a little bit of use to get your head around the rotary controls and assigning various features and settings via them, but after a week I was whizzing around it. Monitoring via the actual device is really great and totally latency free. The ability to have several monitoring mixes assigned via the one box is also very useful.
Great sound quality, totally reliable, really flexible, built like a tank and worth the greater expense in comparison to other interfaces I've used. The accuracy and tweakability of the trim, playback, master volume etc is really really useful - fine tune to your hearts content.
I keep finding useful applications for the flexibility the audio express affords. For a project home studio set up, it is totally worth the outlay. You won't look back.

One of the best featured and built interfaces for the money

28.09.2016
Used as my main soundcard/interface when at university studying music. Build quality is of a high standard and the sound is uncoloured with no signal loss to your monitors.

The inputs are very good and the layout is simple to use.

The added software that comes within the unit is very handy especially the waterfall style analyzer which will assist you in finding what frequency your individual hits and synths are at and if there overlapping too much.

At this price there are no cons buy this and get yourself a decent set of monitors and your'e away ( i used Genelec 8030's with this MOTU)
