great package but poor cosmetics
16.10.2016
well this is my second AVB unit. I bought an Ultralite AVB a few months back for live recording but needed more mic channels so got the 24AI. Sonically the 24ai is incredible. Far Far better than the RME FF802 for sonics. The drivers on the Motu are rock solid too. I've recorded 6 gigs to 18ch 24/96 onto a Pyramix 9 DAW and nothing but a joy. I use the Ultralite for monitoring when running the 24ai.

So now to the bad points. The build and finish is poor. I would have expected a much higher standard of finish but this thing looked liked it was hand sanded in someones garage. I contacted Motu sales USA and they told me to contact the European distributor - not good service.

I would still recommend it on sound quality alone. 24 pristine line ins at 24/192... come on.
