Excellent value for the money
8 clean, open sounding preamps and a rock-solid USB interface for a really reasonable price! I use a MOTU Traveler (bought at Sweetwater maybe 7 years ago, still going strong) for home & remote recording, but needed more pres to track a full band.
The 8pre doesn't do 'color' – there's a good bit of headroom before clipping, but then it distorts unpleasantly. If you're looking for warm/saturated tone, you'll need to look elsewhere (and pay more like $300+ per channel). But if you're happy capturing what's in the room, this is a good choice, matching the quality of the Traveler or Apogee One to my ears.
Like other MOTU interfaces, you get low latency as well as the option to run a no-latency monitor mix; pad and phantom on each channel; and useful metering. The layout is very ergonomic and just works. And the option to output up to 96KHz over ADAT means it won't gather dust even if I wind up expanding again. I've been recording for about 20 years now and look for reliable & sustainable gear. Very happy with this box, especially for the price!
