Motu ultralite mk3 – review. Once we received a call from our good friend Roma (Romano Saxman) and were asked to help him with choosing a right soundcard for his professional needs.
This is not a first time when professional musicians ask us for advice, so we decided to research a right sound interface for hiss needs.
Roma Deschenko is a musician and plays saxophone in several bands, however he is also a good producer and would like to have a compact and mobile setup to write his music and backing tracks. Recently he got a job as a musician on a cruise boat and he gave us few criteria and features that he would like to have on his new mobile recording system. Few of them are:
- it has to be compact
- it has to be able to work as a standalone unit
- unit has to have a sufficient number of inputs an outputs so he can connect different sound sources and provide different mixes to sound engineers
- Although his current notebook has a firewire interface, he would like to have a option for USB as well
We didn’t have to look too far, since there aren’t many professional units that supports hybrid firewire and USB interfaces in the same box.
Motu ultralite mk3 was our choice number one.
We went to BnH’s website and ordered one and were pleased with they excellent services. few days later we got the unit. After playing with it for a while, we realized that this is exactly what our friend Roman needs and for the rest of the people out there we decided to shoot a video review.
All together we end up with five videos. Each video explains and shows different features of the product. Feel free to check them out and if you have any additions, suggestions, questions or even complains, please feel free to post a comment.
