Unbelievable Value
neuroaktivo 10.11.2021
Great sound, great headphone preamp, great metering, great construction, theres not a thing to complain. Watch Julian Krause's youtube review to get all the info.

I would pay a bit more for adat in/out, but the value as it is right now is OVER 9000.

Great clarity and sound for this price
Svarog 27.05.2020
I'm using this in my home studio setup, connecting two pairs of monitors, headphones and some mics and guitar.
The build quality is great, metal chasis and pots, beautiful LCD display with meters, and rubber bottom pads so it doesn't slip around.

The headphone amp drives my 250 ohm DT990 without a problem. I keep it at about 60-65% while mixing and at about 50% for mastered material and it is loud enough for me, with a lot more gain if you need it.
Sound is crystal clear, which is expected as it has professional converters.
The only thing that bugs me is that there is no volume control for output 3/4, at least no practical and fast way to do it. So switching to my secondary monitors to check the sound is a bit of a hassle.

Pros:
Sturdy build, clean converters, great LCD, two pairs of outputs, good headphone amp.

Cons:
No volume control for output 3/4

Amazing!
Orim 01.07.2020
This little black box has it all:
- amazing sound
- very “quiet” almost no noise microphone preamplifiers
- incredibly natural sounding preamps for instruments (all kind of guitars)
- very clever combination of inputs and outputs
- phantom power individually switchable for each channel
- great sturdy build (I dropped it just when unpacking, was moment of terror, but the interface works perfectly) :)
- unbelievable short latency time

I bought it for my home studio to replace constantly problematic Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 3gen (which replaced TC Impact Twin).
Using and abusing it for 3 weeks now, and it just works. Works perfectly well with:
- Windows 10
- MacOS
- iPadOS

I am using it with USB-C cable, but this device works without problems connected to USB-A port (USB 3 and USB2) - tested on my laptops.

If you’re looking for quality interface for your home studio, this one is wort to try.
I am very happy. In the last two years I changed/checked dozens of USB audio interfaces. Always was some problems - either noisy preamplifiers, or non-working drivers, or devices not working after OS update.
This MOTU M4 seems to “just work” :-) I am happy.
