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

Excellent audio interface, great price
O B , 20.04.2020
This interface is so popular most of them are sold out in Europe so I am lucky to have got hold of one of these.

I use this in my home studio. It's got good features on it and the preamps are as described - excellent. I ideally wanted the 4 in/out version, but this one serves me very well.

No cons that I can see - if I had to upscale my studio and started recording more than 2 instruments at a time, then I would go for an 8in/out perhaps. But for where I am at this is perfect.

In summary, very happy with this bit of kit.
