I will dump this unit as soon as possible.
Not all music software works well with this unit using a PC/Windows. I can't "slave" my recording software with my Triton while using this unit. I can slave my software using other Midi Ports such as the one on the Delta 1010 interface. SoundDiver doesn't work at all as well as other apllications. It crashes my system everytime I try to use most of my "midi" software. I tested my system with a Midisport Interface and I experienced absolutely no problems whatsoever.The 8x8 patchbay works well as a stand-alone unit. But navigating thru the front panel screens is a headache.
The product absolutely did NOT live up to my expectations. Being a "MOTU" product, I expected and lot more than what I got.
This product may work a lot better in the Mac platform but I would not recommend this unit with a Windows PC at all. I could have gotten a better unit for my system for a much cheaper price!
I tried to contact MOTU via e-mail back in NOVEMBER and I have yet to hear from them and I'VE tried calling them but with NO success.
The Wow Factor
I'm looking to trade this unit in for something else SOON!

Overall I am very happy and this is a piece of gear I will not outgrow anytime soon. I just went ahead and got the best so I wouldn't have to upgrade yet again in the near future. It is 100% solid.
Oh and by the way, I agree with earlier post about the Windows people slamming the product on every level. Motu has always been a Mac company and only recently offered Windows support. Please, stop whining and go get a computer virus or something. :)
Perfect signal sent, always.
More features than any other MIDI I/O.
Uh...it's MOTU. I can only assume it will last forever. Hard metal casing, very thick rack ears. Knobs are only the aspect whch doesn't feel rock solid but hey, they're knobs.
It's expensive but it should be. Packs more punch than any other.
Don't know yet, never needed it.
The Wow Factor
Well I have one so I guess that counts for something.
