MOTU Introduce M2 and M4 UBC-C Audio Interfaces
When shopping for an audio interface, singer/songwriters and podcasters oftentimes don’t need the full gamut of features. They want a reliable, easy-to-use unit that sounds great. That’s exactly what MOTU’s latest offerings give you — a streamlined design, high-level performance, and top-notch sound. This series of budget-conscious and high-quality USB-C audio interfaces includes the 2-in/2-out M2 and the 4-in/4-out M4.
Class-topping Sound Quality
When it comes to audio quality, the M2 and M4 are at the top of their class. They boast ESS Sabre32 Ultra DAC technology (the same D/A as MOTU’s flagship 1248), delivering unbelievable clarity with 120dB of dynamic range. Both models include MOTU’s transparent-sounding mic preamps, low-noise DC-coupled analog outputs, and an ESS-driven headphone output. Their latency specs are impressive, yielding round-trip latency as low as 2.5ms at 32-bit/96kHz. Whether you’re recording, mixing, or just listening, you can expect top-level sound from these audio interfaces.
Podcasting Made Easy
MOTU’s M2 and M4 are tailor-made for livestreaming and podcasting, thanks to their loopback function. This enables you to blend your mic and other input signals with your computer’s output and then send the blended signal back to your computer, where it can be recorded. The M4 takes this functionality to a higher level with the inclusion of a Mix knob that balances your live input with your computer’s playback.
Zero-latency Hardware Monitoring
Recording with the M2 and M4 is a pleasure, by virtue of their 1-touch hardware monitoring capability. This feature routes all the interface’s analog inputs directly to its analog outputs, thereby granting you zero-latency operation. The result? No annoying delay between what you play, sing, or say and what you are hearing in your headphones. You can also record the interface’s inputs simultaneously, which supplies zero latency while tracking.
