MOTU 24I/O Expander Reviews5.0/5.0 based on 3 customer reviews
24 inputs and outputs! Find me another interface that will do what this does. Attach this to your 2408 and you will have the most versatile studio in town. The 24I/O also gives you an excuse to buy high-quality outboard gear, right? I mean, you can't just let those 1/4" inputs sit there unpopulated, right?

24I/O Expander (is an Expander!)If you've got a Core system allready installed you just simply plug the expander right in. No extra driver needed.
Once again - This only works if you allready have a Core PCI card installed. One driver works all three devices available for the PCI card systems.
As a matter of fact Motu has a Universal Audio Installer.

MOTU ServiceI have a 2408mk3 and when I called MOTU with questions a few times they were gracious curtious and helpful. Oh well, could be either who you got or how you treated them... As far a sound goes I am of the opinion you would be hard pressed to do better. Better luck next time!

Great interface but...MOTU recently pushed out a batch of blank install cds. I just received one, and there's no way to download the expansion installer from the website.
If you order a 24 I/O (which they are awesome - I used one at another studio), be sure to test the install cd during the week when motu's support is working. Don't wait until the weekend like I did. Now I'm stuck and can't do anything with my 24 I/O.
MOTU's been rumored to have bad Q/A, so while you'll get an awesome interface, it can still be unnecessarily painful.
