Well, one of these days I need to upgrade mine or get something else. Mine is nearly ten years old, when I first got it we were only using windows 98. I really like the emu stuff, I don't know, just need a few bucks though.

I can't begin to tell you how great this card sounds, and the responce in Sonar is fantastic too. I just don't know why I didn't purchase one earlier. The presonus sounds great too, but it was mainly the pops and clicks I was getting when using my lap top, and no mater what I did, I couldn't get my system to work properly. So the presonus is primarly used on my desktop, and the motu on the laptop. However, I may decide to get a second motu to travel with, as I can clearly see that the stability in their drivers is great, even under vista. ---- Original Message ----- From: Gordon Kent To: ddots-l@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, March 24, 2008 5:22 PM Subject: [ddots-l] Re: motu sound card Mike: I never have even tried to bother with the cue mix console. Since you have a newer version of the motu than I have and they have made some changes, I couldn't tell you how to raise the output. I think it may be set to -10db but I'm not sure about that.

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.
