Carry-around design with a built like Tank

My first impression of this device is well built, light and amazingly compact. To my pleasant surprise, I found that the version I received (UL Mk3 Hybrid rev3) has a 9-pin Firewire connector (though port is FW400) that means the cable supplied with Ultralite plugs to my Mac straight out of the box. You do not need to purchase a 6-pin to 9-Pin Firewire cable. The box packaging is good and comes with all the things you might need to get going with it i.e. Firewire cable, a USB cable, Rack mounting kit (good that it was not pre-installed since I intend to use it as a desktop interface only), Power adapter, Full manual ( you can download one from MOTU's website as well), Software disk (Audiodesk 3.21, CueMix, OSC layout for iPad app, best of all - a video tutorial on CueMix). If I were to tell the missing links, I'd say an ADAT IO and Class-compliant mode (to record on iPad) would have made it a killer package but considering its cost and size that is forgiving. Driver's installation was a breeze and my Mac (on Maverick) immediately recognized Ultralite.Knobes on the front have good tactile feel and have step-type movement rather than a smooth one, which I personally find better to my taste.

Lots of value and quality for money

MikaL, 19.01.2014
What can I say, quality piece of hardware. Compact, sturdy and easy to carry around. Although UltraLite MkIII Hybrid is small in size, it packs an amazing number of inputs and outputs. Although it is an audio interface it doubles as a small portable mixer that works as standalone piece or attached to computer (when you can use CueMix which is included in package).

It is not apparent from outside, but you have lots of configuration options regarding the inputs and outputs. It is possible to use more than 2 monitors. Due to these configuration options and mixer features it may be too confusing if you are looking some simple solution or just a basic. But if you are looking an audio interface that can handle moderately complex audio routings, this is a good choice.

Considering that UltraLite is not expensive it has such additional features like hardware DSP (reverb etc), USB and Firewire connectivity and 192 KHz sampling rate.

I have used it both standalone and attached to several computers. Nice thing is that CueMix and UltraLite work also with old PowerPC based Mac Pro. My only complaint is the cramped interface panel. It is not very easy to use as standalone piece due to cramped rotary buttons which you have to push and rotate in order to navigate through menu and adjust some parameter. But with computer and CueMix it is perfect.
