Motu and Thomann
Dc.van kleef, 15.04.2020
First off all I would like to thank Thomann for its fast delivery especially now during lock down times!

Than the Motu M2!
I worked with Motu products in the past and now that I restarted my music hobby I was happy to find this Motu M2 her at Thomann-de
I use Ableton live which they also include as extra software (lite version) plus I move around from time to time so its perfect for me and my laptop to fit in a bag to come along

The quality of Motu has always been good in my opinion and this time again I have to say the same!
Good sound with on the front side a simple and clear display and buttons for the volumes, plus inputs for mic/line/guitar x2
On the back you have the midi in/out and your monitor inputs plus a power switch
Easy install of the driver just follow the instructions plus you get some nice software with loop & sound packs that are great as well
It comes with a USB C cable to connect with your computer
which is fine for me
Honestly I don?t have any cons on this product

So If you are looking for a solid and good sounding easy to carry audio interface than this is a great deal, price wise and quality wise you wont be disappointed !

Greetings
Daniel

good for the price
Robee95, 08.02.2020
I just wanted an audio interface for recoding guitar plays with low latency. It is just amazing it does the job without annoying latency issues even with virtual gitar amps.

Sound is amazing for monitoring, or for guitar plays with amp. however didnt really liked listening music or playing games( in games the sound comes everywhere just not where it should).

Quiality- I might not the one because I read a couple ppl with same issues. the gain knob on the line 1 around at quater has a rought noise like it scratches the case or something but after its gone only has the issue in the first quarter. I can live with it tough its a bit annoying problem some of those who would use it frequently.

All in all if you are looking for something different other than the Focusrite its a go to. Amazing microphon and guitar interface for me.
