a good starting point for some
29.10.2014
So after long debate and a load of research i decided to go with Motu because of its reputation of making hard waring , sleek looking , feature packed good sounding interfaces and as an added bonus for some they are USA made which is a rarity in this day and age especially in the 828x price bracket.

I found that it worked with protools 10 as well as cuebase and that it ran with only a few bugs that were fixed with updates.

I found the ad/da on the unit to be above others in its price bracket such as the focusrite scarlet range etc and that the pre amps were of an okay standard, nothing spectacular but solid . The soft limit is a great feature when, for example recording a dynamic sound without clipping e.g. kick or snare drum.

The dsp mixer took a little getting used to but is good and flexible enough to get the job done in the end and the dsp effects are a great feature and save cpu!

Guðlaugur, 01.05.2014
This is an amazing sound card/ mixer, witch can be used as main recording input device and at the same time act as you main mixer in the studio, for practicing or just connecting you media devices without worrying if your computer is turned on. expansion options are unbelievable and the price is incredible for what you get.
The CueMix FX make setting up the 828x so easy that little to know knowledge is needed to make a simple but good setup for individual in/out put very fast.
being both Thunderbolt and USB makes it easy to use on more then 1 computer.
It's one of the best investments I made over several years
