The 24 i/o surpassed all my expectations it fit right in seamlessly I have the pcie card easy to use quality equipment
0 lag time monitoring is the best part
Ease of Use
plug and play is the best way to describe this product
The product is made well but since I only use it in my pro studio I can't tell if it would be appropriate for use "on the road"
unbeatable if just for the support
Manufacturer Support
Detroit Edison (who supplies my electricity) provided me with "power spikes", "low voltage",intermittant service even though I had protection against these problems destroyed 1 $5000.00 computer and three times destroyed my motu 24 i/o Motu replaced my 24 i/o immeditately 3 times for a $75.00 fee without Question I don't know of ANY company that would do that!!! thanks to Motu I'm still in business if Motu built boards and computers my whole studio would be made by Motu
The Wow Factor
It is the most practical addition to my setup
