This piece of equipment is top notch. I'm running this with Cubase Artist 8 on a 2.6 GHz 8GB Mac Mini. Getting it set up and running was a breeze. I never have any problems what so ever and the unit has never missed a beat at any time. There isn't another "portable" interface with the routing options that this package delivers. Perfect for using a couple pieces of outboard gear or sending your entire mix out to a compressor and back in. The metering is more than sufficient and accurate all across the board. The uni knob and it's functions are extremely easy to use. Beats reaching over to my old interface to tweak preamps and volume. The Track 16 is built like a tank and also looks great. The sound quality is top shelf. There is nothing "HYPED UP" coming out of the monitors upon playback. What comes in is what goes out. Nothing more and nothing less. Get dialled in at the source and you'll be competing with the big boys come time to mix. Cue mix is a whole other review on it's own. IT IS AMAZING. If I could ask for anything more it would be more gain in the preamps. Obviously with the ADAT option and the line-ins I can hook-up what ever external pre i choose but more gain in the on board preamps would be nice. Good job MOTU.
