[ddots-l] Re: motu sound card

Hey stacy the card is the Motu 8pre, and the layout of the unit is smple.
You have eight knobs to adjust your input sound,
Each channel has a pad gain switch with fantom power switch.
If you have th unit facing you and have the knobs facing toards you from left you have input to to eight, After the eighth knob, you have what's called a preset knob which allows you to slect presets while in stand alone mode meaning while not hooked on your PC, so efectivly you could use your 8pre as a stand alone mixer. To the right of that is your display console which shows peak meters, and preset number, and on the far right you have your power switch. Now facing the unit the other way meaning that you have the input facing you, you have following,
going from left to right,
you have the power jack, which is a standard three pin computer plug, obpicle inputs, and outputs,
two firewire ports,
two main outs,
and input eight to one, again going from left to right i you have the inputs facing you. The xlr and line in quarter jacks are as one jack, and if you plug in your xlr it actually lock in to place. The only way to release the jack is to press the lock to slide out the xlr jack. The unit is rack mountable, and for the extra money your going to pay its well worth it. For simplicity sake, I'd still recimend to clients to go with the presonus fp10/firepod as there's no tweeking with the card it self you need to do with regard to the software interface.
This is why I've decided to keep both cards as much as possible.
If only I could fix this pop issue with my laptop,
failing that I'm probabbly going to have to get rid of it as I'd like to have two sound cards, one in the studio racked in, and the other for on the road work. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Stacy Bleeks" <sbleeks@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

your absolutly right Phil, as I noticed that the Presonus for some reason has to connect twice to my system, and I can hear this because the sounds of connection run twice when I switch the unit on, where as with the motu the
sound is only once, and in working with Sonar, I noticed remarkible
improovement with response, even on my desktop.
If only I could get some one to give me a tour of the q mix console.

Phil replied: not surprised by that at all.  Your probably getting
better performance from the MOTU because it's drivers are better written.

I do have a presonus still, just wanted to add to my rig of
equipment, and figured that having two sound cards is better then none, and having a different sound card is also a good idea to gain knolege, and I am the type that loves to get in to different interfaces and exparament, since I do work as a rehab teacher here in Montreal, and am currently training several clients on how to use music software,besides I noticed that the motu has less pops and clicks on my laptop, and that response is much better in
sonar.

Hey Gord or any one on list, I just
purchased the Motu 8pre, and love the card sound so far. My only concern is on how to get around the Q mixing console, do I need to use the Jaws cursor?
and how can I efectivly lower or raise the
main out volume?
Any help regarding this would be greatly
appreciated.
