Built Like a Tank
Blakey, 19.03.2021
Excellent build quality as you would expect from MOTU, this feature rich device is perfect for musicians who want to record and produce music in the studio or on the road. Can be mains or USB powered giving you flexibility when out and about. Also perfect for 'laptop' DJs as it is compact and robust. Comes with MOTUs DAW 'Performer Lite' but also works perfectly with any DAW that uses Mac Core Audio or Windows ASIO drivers. Value for money is excellent considering what you get. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a feature rich portable device at an excellent price. If you want more inputs and outputs, then you're better off going for the M4, Audio Express or the Ultralite AVB, but of course, then the price will go up accordingly.

Wunderbares Interface fürs kleine Recording
JackDaumenbluter, 22.01.2019
Klanglich ist das MicroBook IIc ganz hervorragend für das Geld. Mein mittlerweile ausgedientes Mbox Pro 3 von Avid klang nicht so gut! Der Preamp is sehr neutral und bringt die Nuance des Mikrofons sehr gut hervor. Bei der Größe des Interfaces bereits beim Tracking mit EQ und Comp zu arbeiten ist wunderbar. Der Instrumenteneingang klingt für Bässe sehr gut. Für Gitarren würde ich die MOTU DI dazuempfehlen da sie den Pluginsound nochmal verbessert. Die zwei zusätzlichen Line Eingänge können ebenfalls als Mono Eingang mit EQ und Comp genutz werden. (Ev mit einem externen Preamp) Manko ist dass das Interface nur einen zusätzlichen kleinen Klinken Stereoausgang hat. Möchte man etwas Reampen muss man ein Kabel von Ministereoklinke auf 2x XLR rausfahren und hat dadurch einen Pegelverlust, welcher dem Reampsignal (Reamping Box vorausgesetzt) sehr viel Signaltreue raubt. Man könnte natürlich einen der beiden Main Ausgänge verwenden, das ist aber leider nur der halbe Spaß. Der Kopfhörerausgang klingt gut, hat jedoch wegen der USB Stromspeisung nicht recht viel Schmackes. Ich persöhnlich habe noch nie voll ausfgedreht, jedoch einige Gitarrsiten standen bei der Lautstärke mal auf 100% (Gerade wenn ein echter Amp auch noch im Raum ist). Ich nutze das Microbook mit USB2.0 in ein Macbook Pro(i5,8GBRam) mit Pro Tools 11 mit 64 Samples 48kHz 24 Bit und mach das Monitoring ausschließlich über die DAW ohne merkliche Latenz.(Super Treiber!) Alles in allem ist das Microsbook ein hervorragendes Interface für alle die nicht zu viele Eingänge benötigen, jedoch Wert auf gute Signalqualität für die wenigen Eingänge legen.
Klare Kaufempehlung für Singer/Songwriter, Recording engineers Unterwegs und Mixing engineers welche mit 1x XLR 1x Klinke und 2x Mono Stereo Klinke Line auskommen.

indispensable en audio comme un couteau
Ramin et Claire, 29.04.2017
Il faut un peu de temps pour comprendre l'utilisation de cet appareil, tant de choses différentes sont possibles avec lui.

C'est d'abord un excellent enregistreur numérique. Sur l'entrée microphone, le silence et la qualité des timbres du préampli-micro (avec une alimentation 48V et un atténuateur) est meilleur que sur mon Zoom F8 et même sur mon Sound-devices 702.

Ensuite c'est un excellent convertisseur et un très bon ampli casque (même pour un casque avec une impédance de 300 ohms comme le HD650 de Sennheiser). Il fonctionne très bien avec un logiciel de lecture de musique en haute-définition comme Audiovarna.

C'est encore un préamplificateur avec :
- une entrée analogique
- deux sorties analogiques (Main et Line)
- une sortie numérique (SPDIF RCA)

En l'utilisant comme préamplificateur, vous pouvez donc contrôler des enceintes amplifiées avec le Microbook.

Le MicroBook est un appareil plug-in et n'a pas besoin de logiciel pour fonctionner, mais avec le puissant logiciel CueMix FX qui l'accompagne, il permet de "router" chaque entrée vers une ou plusieurs sorties, d'atténuer de façon numérique les entrées et les sorties, de faire des mixtes, des filtrages de toutes sortes, d'envoyer des fréquences (bruit rose par exemple) vers les sorties... pour ensuite les mesurer au niveau des enceintes avec un microphone.

Il peut même servir de filtre actif pour les enceintes en utilisant des filtres sur les 2 sorties disponibles.

Enfin les logiciels qui accompagnent le Microbook permettent de l'utiliser comme un appareil de mesure des fréquences, de la phase et même comme un oscilloscope.

C'est vraiment un appareil magique, agréable à utiliser, d'une grande qualité, un vrai couteau suisse audio d'une qualité/prix invraisemblable.

Pequeña pero potente
14.12.2015
Probablemente sea la interfaz con mayor margen dinámico en su rango de precio, lo que nos permite apretar más las mezclas y conseguir esos 3dB de más antes de saturar que con otras no podríamos. Si a eso le añadimos la excelente calidad que acompaña a todos los productos Motu, ya tenemos la interfaz perfecta.
Ideal para producción de música electrónica, mezcla y masterización. Tamaño reducido y muy compacta, perfecto para llevártela donde necesites. Por lo contrario, si andas buscando una interfaz con muchas entradas o algo más enfocado a la grabación acústica de múltiples instrumentos, esta no te servirá.
Si dudas entre una Scarlett y esta Motu, no te lo pienses: ¡ve a por la Motu!
