Excellent quality
M_Alex, 08.08.2017
Excellent power, flexibility and sound quality.
Works great on Windows 8.1 / 10 x64 (except Discovery app which i would disable anyway because i can launch Firefox/Chrome manually for the Web app) and Linux, connected on USB 3.0 port.
It's fast and stable.
In unusual situations like when i close the Linux VM, the sound mutes and i need to switch the sample rate to get the sound back. I have never needed to restart the machine.
I think it is intelligently designed, including the control Web app.
However, it must stay away from strong EM fields.
I'm also expecting to receive soon the Digital Performer 9 and the MOTU bag from the MOTU dealer, Klemm Music Technology.

Next Gen Audio Interface
30.03.2017
Hallo Freundinnen und Freunde der fortschrittlichen Audiotechnik,

Ich nutze Windows 10.

Erster Schock nach Inbetriebnahme.
Gleiche Latenzzeiten wie beim Motu 16A (gleicher Treiber; auch AVB) unter USB 2.0.
Ging aufgrund der laufendenen Propaganda zum Produkt davon aus, unter USB 3.0 bessere Latenzzeiten zubekommen. Fehlanzeige. Einziger Fortschritt: Die maximale Kanalanzahl ist nun uppiger, für mich nur leider kein Thema.
Verteidigend muss man sagen, die Latenzzeiten sind schon recht niedrig. Allerdings liegen Sie doch deutlich über der RME MADI PCIe was ich nach dem Lobgepreise im Vorfeld irgendwie anders erwartet hatte.
Unter MacOS sollte das wohl besser aussehen, kann ich aber nichts zu sagen.

Treiber:
Ich habe im Schnitt bei jedem 3. Start das Problem, dass das Gerät zwar in Windows verfügbar ist, jedoch der ASIO Treiber in Ableton nicht aktiviert werden kann. Eine Ursache ist nicht nachvollziehbar. Jedes 10 mal hilft nur der Neustart des Rechners, ansonsten reicht es den Treiber bis zu 5 mal neu auszuwählen. Irgendwann wird er dann akzeptiert. Gleiches Symptom tritt nach dem Einsetzen eines Energiesparmodus auf. Dann hilft allerdings i.d.R. nur ein Reboot. Wenn das Gerät aber mal läuft läuft es.

Preamps:
-Die Preamps klingen für mich sauber. Meine -warmen- Quellen wie den Pro6 muss ich um 10 - 18 db verstärken und erreiche damit einen ähnlich warmen klang in der Aufnahme. Details werden für mein Ohr sehr gut erfasst-

AVB:
AVB find ich total genial!
Funktioniert Plug n Play, ist einfach und super erweiterbar sowie schnell. Einzig die Preise für die AVB Switches sind zu sportlich gewählt.

Zusammenfassung:
+ Plug and Play! Auch bei mehreren Interfaces
+ Zuweisung der AVB Streams komplex, leicht verständlich aber vor allem funktioniert problemlos!
+ Erweiterbarkeit ist einfach und vergleichsweise preiswert
+ Klang
+ Latenzzeiten sehr gering
+ Guiter Mic und Line Eingänge Simultan Nutzbar.

- Leider trat nach 2 Monaten bei abklingenden Volumes ein digitales klingendes Nebengeräusch an einem Preamp (Line 2) auf. Gerät wurde eingeschickt, Antwort offen.
- Treiberprobleme unter Windows 10 Stand 03/2017 s.o.
- USB 3.0 ohne Performancevorteil gegenüber USB 2.0 unter Win10. Also tut es auch das 350 Euro billigere Interface der AVB Serie sofern man kein Thunderbolt oder 24 Kanäle einem zum PC braucht.
- Updatefunktion mit Bugs, bei mir nur über 2. PC und direkten Anschluß des Interfaces an das Internet möglich.

Hätte mir ja n RME Madiface gekauft, kommt aber in Punkto Wandlerzahl, Erweiterbarkeit und Preis Leistung nicht an das Motu ran. Man vom Budget (RME *2) abgesehen.

Fantastica Motu 6243 AWB
JerryAr, 08.11.2020
Realizzata negli Stati Uniti appare con una solida costruzione e non scalda durante l’utilizzo. La uso con Logic Pro X. Eccellente qualità del pre e dei convertitori ( uso casse ADAM A5X).
Eccellenti anche le registrazioni e l’ascolto sia in cuffia che dai monitor.
Occupa poco spazio e racchiude tantissime funzioni controllabili sia dal Mac e sia dall’ Iphone.
Adesso è possibile ascoltare la musica utilizzando i sofisticati mixer ed effetti proposti dalla macchina. Attenzione: per utilizzarli occorre collegarla in rete con il Mac.
Ho 2 impianti di registrazione e nel precedente stò usando ancora la storica Motu traveler che continua imperterrita nel suo lavoro. Grazie Motu e grazie Thomann per l’assistenza, per la spedizione veloce e per la grande comunicazione. Consigliatissim

Chasse aux pingouins
Screaming pinguin, 12.11.2020
Le son ? C'est ok.
La gestion de la carte par le navigateur internet ? C'est ok, et un vrai plus.
Techniquement rien à dire.
Le seul - mais énorme problème - c'est l'attitude du fabricant MOTU, face à LINUX.
Changement de firmware qui fait bugger le «class compliant», instabilités - parfois la carte lache dans JACK. Donc quand elle fonctionne c'est nickel. Mais on ne peut pas lui faire confiance à 100%
Et MOTU s'en fout de LINUX, il le précise bien. Même s'il annonce sa carte comme «class compliant» c'est «class compliant» windows/Apple et peut-être LINUX si vous êtes sage.
Testée avec 50 Kernels différents - des customs, des out-of-the-box de la distro - toutes options passées au peigne fin.
Dommage, la gestion de la carte par navigateur était vraiment un plus.
