Tricky set-up but great soundcard

06.12.2015
Great soundcard but not so easy to set-up...

I'm a longtime MOTU user (15+ years) but I found the initial set-up of this soundcard quite difficult. I found the MOTU manuals etc are not very helpful with this.
Let me mention a couple of things here that might help others in the same situation:
When you launch the AVB Discovery App, it can seem like nothing happens. But the tiny app icon will appear in your deskyop menu bar (next to clock etc). Its easy to miss. You have to click on this icon, select your device and you will access the web control app in your browser.
I ended up accessing the web app via Ethernet cable, which led to my next problem. Apparently leaving the Ethernet cable connected can interfere with the correct operation of the Thunderbolt cable. My 16A wouldn't recognize changes in sample rate, or let me change sample rate manually. I could not discover the reason for this, and I even thought the 16A was faulty. Then on a forum I stumbled across the advice not to have both Ethernet and TB connected at the same time. This solved the problem.
Apart from this early confusion, I'm very happy with the 16A. It sounds great and has all the connectivity I need for my analogue gear.

If you need many inputs and outputs

Mika Tuomas, 24.09.2014
A super interface if you need a lot of inputs and outputs. I use it with Pro Tools and Logic on a Mac mini over Thunderbold and it works perfectly. The integration is a children's game. You should only know that there are currently no drivers for Windows! Also the headphone output mentioned here is not available. But does not disturb synonymous, since there are enough other outputs and this interface is connected to other devices anyway. The latency is less than with some hardware devices and no longer noticeable (according to the manufacturer with 32 samples).
Interesting is the programming of the device: This is completely in the browser and is thus very future-safe and understandable. Also the effects of the internal processor are good (Compressor & EQ even very good!). I have a 24 channel mix made and had a processor utilization of about 60% (in the interface). The computer was not burdened at all! If you want to use the interface live as a "mixer" set, this is also without a computer and you can connect it (via Ethernet to the WLAN router) before programming and the settings via the smartphone or tablet.
